IGN: Sonic the Hedgehog Review

IGN's Jeremy Dunham finds little to cheer about in his review of Sega's latest in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.

"Sonic the Hedgehog is a mess. While there are a few glimmers of hope early on when players take control of Silver and his cool telekinesis ability, it's quickly realized that the game's design never really capitalizes on it. The remaining character situations (Shadow's vehicle segments and Sonic's traditional platforming) aren't anywhere near as interesting as Silver's, and the whole game has a forced and generic feel to it. Once you sauté that winning formula with a rack full of technical problems you end up with one hell of a disappointing game." (PS3, Sonic the Hedgehog)

OMG! Haha a 4.2? Wow that's REALLY bad I wanted this for the 360 than saw the review and realized it sucked, but not this bad. I never realized the Xbox got a slightly better 4.8. Damn Sega, what the HELL are you doing to us?

Why didnt they just delay it. The game is bad on all platforms so I dont see why they didnt try to improve it in some way. Even if the graphics suck you can still make the game fun.

Dunno what happend.

yeah its a bad game on both systems....its funny because the article from Gamespot's review also said it was terrible, but I guess they didn't even feel the need to actually "change" the review, just a simple cut and paste job from the 360 review(not very creditable) but they actually rated it a few points lower. Now this IGN review is much better(two different reviews) but the results are still the same....its a bad game. Like I said: "Wassup with Sega?" -its not like they didn't have more time. -Sad.

Should anyone expect this version to be better than the 360. As for how they came up with the final score, it is a mystery. The 360 version had the same breakdown for graphics, sound etc, but scored higher. I guess .6 of a point is how bad the load times were.

Maybe the Sonic on the Wii will be worth playing?

that they had to port this to ps3, we really don't need any more bad games cluttering the poor system up. I honestly don't know why sega even tries doing sonic games anymore, they have been failures for the past several years, I'm not even sure of sonic's wii-debute, it will probably suck too
