Top Five Most Disappointing Sonic The Hedgehog Games (RunDLC)

Sonic the Hedgehog’s had a rough career. Originally groomed as the mascot that would topple Mario, Sega grossly mishandled its shining star, casting him in a series of average to downright awful video games that critics would like to forget. And with Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 speeding its way to consoles this winter, all eyes are on the blue blur and his highly anticipated adventure.

So far, it appears that Sega’s moving in the right direction, with a 2-D side scrolling platform game that reminds us of the character’s 16-bit Genesis days, but we’ve been fooled before by over hyped titles that seemed fun, but ultimately proved disappointing. Here now, are those five games.

Sonic Shuffle didn't make this list? And what about the iPhone versions? Just ugh.

The key word is disappointing..not necessarily the worst.

Sonic Heros and Sonic Adventure 1-2 were good the other 3D ones suck.

You could've listed every single Sonic game since Sonic for DC and you wouldn't be off much.

The only good 3D Sonic games were SA1 and SA2

I liked Sonic unleashed.. especially daytime levels, and those night time levels were just like to play a platformer game, there's nothing wrong.. don't know why are you hatin' it..

I still would like to see...
A Mario & Sonic game similar to that of the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro crossover games. Let Nintendo and Miyamoto handle it, and I truly think we'd get a decent game. Sonic against Bowser and Mario battling Robotnik in one of his massive contraptions.

Something a little similar to Super Mario Bros Z, just without all the DBZ influence.

You can't tell me this doesn't sound like a good idea.

Sonic Heroes should really be on that list. '06 was worse from a technical standpoint, but Heroes was the epitome of everything wrong with Sonic games in 3D space. That was also the game that started the 'We will take Sonic back to his roots by making it all about SPEED again!' lie that Sega has been peddling ever since.
