Very quick! technically not bad, 60fps and zero slowdown noticed. No antialiasing but not that big and issue as the speed you move around your not going to be seeing a great deal !!!! Overall the gfx are very colourful and vibrant throughout!! However, i don`t like the game lol! A very awkward camera doesn`t help, even though you can move around manually and reset it when you want. But at least Microsoft is leading the way with big name demos on live, heres hoping for an Odyssey at some point!!

Sux. The game doesn't feel fast enoough, and the camera is very awkard...moving it with the analogue stick is WAY to slow. The gameplay is across between free-froaming and on rails: it just doesn't work.

Sonic Wild Fire is my last hope.

ima try this when i get home

Not to shabby. It's a little easy to fall into the water though, so I had to stop playing lazy. I did noticed some slow down though (after the first rope at the pinball springs).

The game was excellent with good graphics and gameplay...but the views are very very bad and i hope they change before launch.

Sadly i doubt they will...but it's still worth the pruchase imho

we need a new sonic pinball, with boss battles / hidden stages / 1 sec load times

Snookies1228d ago

Definitely agreed. I loved Sonic Spinball back on Genesis. I want a new Mean Bean Machine too, while we're at it!

Snookies1228d ago

Still need to check out Frontiers at some point. Just waiting on a really good Steam sale for it.

I didn't realise it was that popular.

Sonic '06 has a special place in my heart.

It's the game that finalized my divorce from the franchise. I actually really liked most of the 3D games before the PS3/X360 era with this steaming pile. It doesn't help that this was the game that gave me RRoD either.

There are many worse Sonic games than this one:

Sonic Labrynth
Sonic Free Riders
Sonic the Hedgehog on GBA
Sonic mobile games (too many to list)
Sonic Rivals 1 & 2
Sonic Game Gear titles

There's more I'm forgetting. But yeah, lazy low-hanging fruit, quickly shat out worthless article without substance beating a dead horse that's already been beaten for the past 17 years isn't enough.

Opinion piece.

And I would say that history tends to be lenient to games that aren't mainline titles and released on handhelds/secondary hardware (Kinect). We can easily acknowledge those games are bad, but you kind of expect it because they're either bad ports or spinoff titles.

As the first mainline game of gen 7, I can see some good arguments for this one being the worst.
