Sonic and the Black Knight won't blow you away, nor is it bringing Sonic back to his glory days. Thanks to the inclusion of some unwanted sword gameplay, the usual Sonic gameplay is pretty much thrown out the window. The controls aren't that great, and can be a bit frustrating to work with at times. While the overall presentation is great, it doesn't really help out on how troublesome the gameplay is.
If you're a fan of Sonic's recent titles, then this will certainly satisfy you. Nintendo Now would recommend to at least give the game a try in order to see if it's something you're able to tolerate. They did have some fun with the game, but those hoping to play a Sonic game that's reminiscent of the old times won't find that in the Black Knight.
