Sonic and The Secret Rings (Wii) Review

 

Sonic tilting his way to a decent game.

Sonic and the Secret Rings

 

The Sonic series' move to 3D was not quite as graceful as other series' offerings. The original Sonic adventure while clumsy, was enjoyable, but later releases have strayed so far from what made Sonic great in the first place that many have given up on...

Sonic and the Secret Rings

 

You can dress him up in new-gen clothes, offer a brand new way to control him, but you can't change the fact the Sonic the Hedgehog is a tired old dinosaur with little imagination. Or so Sonic and the Secret Rings for Wii would seem to attest.

The blue dude with the attitude returns for his umpteenth outing in Sonic and the Secret Rings, another 3-D, path running, platform-hopping, baddie-bashing, bauble collecting sort of thing with Arabian Nights-type trappings. A yawner of a title if it...

Sonic and the Secret Rings

 

The Sonic series is reanimated to a lurching existence, but it's still not quite as lively as it once was.

Levels where you can just run fast; art and level design; Japanese language option

Levels where you have to move carefully; bad guy is named "Erazor"; rock music

Sonic and the Secret Rings

 

Sonic is back, but should you care? (Hint: Yes)

As is so often the case with Wii games, a multiplayer mode has been tacked on with support for up to four players. Yep, another collection of 40 or so mini-games have been included in Party Mode. These are somewhat fun to play with friends, and for the...

Sonic and the Secret Rings review

 

Sonic hasn’t aged very well. His fast, hyperactive youth has long since been replaced by mediocrity and disappointment. Once an A student, this hedgehog was sent to the counselor and in need of serious changes, lest he be shunned further away from his...

Sonic still isn’t quite up to grade with his peers, but at least he’s managed to get around the harsh reprimands of his critics (mostly). Sonic and the Secret Rings is a great addition to one’s Wii library. I’d hope that in the future, SEGA and Sonic...

Are we in hog heaven with Sonic's latest adventure?

Sonic and the Secret Rings (Wii) review

 

Sonic has hardly had a very good reputation in recent years. Basically since he went 3D, Sonic has been circling the drain, with the exception of Sonic Rush which stayed 2D for the most part. The low point has to be Sonic the Hedgehog for 360/PS3. Can...

It shouldn't be a secret that Sonic is finally starting to become enjoyable again.

Sonic and the Secret Rings

 

Sonic's fall from grace has been one of the most prolific examples of a series of games losing its way. Beginning with his being unleashed into 3D, bringing camera issues along with it, and culminating in the murderously terrible Sonic The Hedgehog...

A marked improvement over the Sonic of recent years, but still one that has enough slight issues to build up and pull it down a peg or two. This is something that can be built and capitalised on, though, and we look forward to seeing another Sonic on...

Sonic and the Secret Rings

 

SEGA would be wise to persevere with the best aspects of its latest Sonic outing, but by no means should they think they've cracked the 3D conundrum. They're still far from it.

Looks pretty great ; It's fast at times

The on-rails design causes problems ; Too many aggravating moments

Despite its many problems, Sonic and the Secret Rings isn't as bad as the recently released Sonic the Hedgehog for next-gen consoles. It delivers pure Sonic action far more often than that weak effort managed, but it's still hard to call it a...

Product Specifications

Sonic brings his trademark speed and attitude to the Wii in his solo adventure. In Sonic and the Secret Rings, Sonic finds himself in the colorful and vibrant world of the Arabian Nights tales. There he embarks on his most outrageous journey to date through an expansive 3D world brought to life with realistic water reflections, light bloom, and lifelike physics. Sonic and the Secret Rings makes custom use of the innovative Wii remote to create a truly immersive gaming experience. Mimicking the energy and movements of Sonic, players actively perform specialized moves with the controller, bringing their stamina and wide range of motion into the action! Players will hurtle Sonic forward by rotating the controller from side to side and perform combo moves with a flick of the wrist. This, combined with a dizzying sense of speed, will quickly draw players of all ages into the action!
