The last several Sonicgames I've played are like the endless Mario spin-offs–only appreciated by the fanboys. Wiimote and Nunchuk in hand I soon had Sonic running, jumping and sword swinging to my hearts content. Sonic runs forward on a set path by pressing the control stick forward and can move slightly left or right to collect items or avoid obstacles. Sword play was responsive and simple with horizontal and vertical slashes as well as thrusts. Sonic can even stand his ground and defend instead of having to attack or jump over enemies".
