Sonic Unleashed has some stellar moments that remind me of better Sonic games from days gone by, but players will have to slog through the repetitive night stages to reach them. Ideally this formula should have been flipped. One would think that the speedy day stages would have been the focus of the game while the werehog gimmick would be used for a quick change of pace. Please, Sonic Team: Sonic is all about speed. Turn him loose and let him run! As it stands, the lack of more day stages to provide some balance to the experience leaves this game feeling more like Sonic Unfinished.
