Sonic the Hedgehog (PlayStation 3)

 

In what might be seen as a move to reset and reinvent the series, the latest game to feature Sonic the Hedgehog is merely called Sonic the Hedgehog. Sega's blue critter has been around since the 16-bit days, when his side-scrolling platformers were...

As mentioned before, Silver the psychic hedgehog will focus on dispatching enemies using his telekinesis. He will be able to raise and manipulate platforms, throw things at enemies, and deflect bullets. It all sounds pretty cool, especially considering...

With a next-gen debut to make and a world to save, Sonic seems more focused on jumping the shark.

Three playable hedgehogs ; Split-screen co-op and versus ; Admirable object physics

The camera, control, collision ; Uninspired graphics and sound ; Awkward, insulting side missions

The 360 version of Sonic the Hedgehog was the most heartbreaking game we played all last year, and possibly for a few years before that too. And unfortunately, this PS3 version is exactly the same in all the wrong ways.

Sonic fans might be able to stomach some of the game's many issues, but they really shouldn't be tolerated. Sonic the Hedgehog is a complete mess.

Sonic fans might be able to stomach some of these issues, but they really shouldn't be tolerated. Sonic has been on a slippery slope for years and SEGA has done nothing about it, and this has culminated in what can only be described as a complete...

Sonic The Hedgehog (PS3) review

 

Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1998

Technical errors frowned upon after the release of Sonic Adventure on Dreamcast still continue to put in an appearance almost a decade later, making for a flat disappointment of a game. My, how we're tired of saying that.

Couldve been better

 

Im disappointed. People have complained about the camera angles for Sonic games for awhile now and they still havent done more to improve on it. Its not all bad but it could have been better.

You can play as different characters and a lot of stages are alright

Bad camera angles.Out of all the characters you can be I liked Sonic the least.Because of the camera angles his speed works against you too many times

Mayor drawback

 

The game begins nice, but after that you're done with it. The city is very undeveloped and requires to much loading time for what it actually is. First the city gets loaded, loaded again for the event, loaded again for the battle, and finnaly loaded...

nice graphics

to many glitches

Consumer review by:

Good 'ol Sonic is Back. But He's No Fun.

 

Against some good advice, I bought Sonic. And now I regret it. It was so much fun (in the 80s?). Game play can be fun at times. The worlds that Sonic visits are interesting. But this game just wasn't developed well. The plot is so flat, it almost...

Sonic & Co get to go to some very visually interesting worlds

Poor gameplay. Way too much time loading

Sonic the Hedgehog- PS3

 

call me a sonic fanboy if you wish I don't care. I like this game, yes the camera gets in the way sometimes but not nearly as often or as frustrating as other people would have you believe.

Sonic the Hedgehog- PS3

 

Just please stop making 3D sonic games. The series should have died a long time ago.

Product Specifications

When video game icon Sonic The Hedgehog debuted on the SEGA Genesis in 1991, he shook up the action-platform genre with his signature speed and rebellious attitude. More than 44 million units later, Sonic celebrates his 15th anniversary and blazes his way onto the next generation consoles for an epic adventure designed to deliver the most intense sensation of speed experienced. The game is set in Soleanna, the beautiful city of water. In his first adventure set in the human world, Sonic meets a beautiful princess named Elise, whom he quickly befriends, but Princess Elise is abducted by none other than the calculating Dr. Eggman who is working under dark and sinister motives to destroy this special kingdom of hers. In order to restore safety and serenity, Sonic must maneuver his way through a series of adventures and challenges where he will encounter and interact with a bevy of allies and enemies, and ultimately go head to head against the menacing doctor to thwart his malicious plans. Along the way, Sonic encounters a mysterious character named Silver. Blocking him with unique supernatural powers, even the Blue dude with 'tude will find it difficult to out-maneuver the enigmatic Silver! As Sonic speeds through the huge kingdom, the mysteries unravel. Sonic The Hedgehog melds top-tier animation production values with next generation art, physics and game design to create the most intense, high velocity Sonic adventure yet! Featuring interactive 3D environments, a large cast of new and returning characters and a blistering sense of speed, get ready for the reinvention of Sonic The Hedgehog!
