PSU Review: Sonic The Hedgehog

It's Sonic's 15th anniversary and he is trying to get things started by adding a new addition to the already great line-up that Sonic Team has produced. There's no better way to do this than bringing the series to next-gen consoles or more specifically PlayStation 3. In this version of Sonic you meet new characters and also interact with all of the returning characters to help give followers of the franchise a familiar feel. This sounds like a great game in theory but unfortunately Sonic Team doesn't quite make it to par.

Overall: 48/100

Sonic was one of the best 2D games around, but 3D has and should of gone in a different direction.
IMO, I believe with especially the advent of Next. Gen. Hardware, Sega should of taken Team Sonic to a new and different dimension, more so like as in a Zelda meets Sonic meets Viva Pinata, giving the game some creative personality to it, and not going from either standing still to moving at light speed w/o any in betweens.

We all seem to like in betweens. Either way, it's ready for an overhaul, or just plain retierment.

The last Sonic 3D that I enjoyed was on the Sega Dreamcast, and even then he/it needed a change.

"Sonic the Hedgehog" was only released for the 360 and PS3. "Sonic and the Secret Rings" was a completely different game released for the Wii which apparently was actually fairly decent.

Sega, write this down...
1) Re-release all your sega classics as downloadable arcade games.
2) Stop making Sonic games until you've figured out what it is that made the original fun (and a classic).
3) Repeat to yourself, "It's ok to make a 2d next gen title".
4) If you doubt number 3, look at the top selling games of all time... and of this year and last. Hint: He's a little Italian plumber.
