Sonic and the Secret Rings Review

 

Neoseeker's Offendr provides an in-depth review for Sonic and the Secret Rings, touching base on everything from the story to the Wii motion-sensing gameplay.

After finishing the game, you can replay the game by trying to get Gold Medals for every level, collecting every Fire Soul out there to unlock extras (like more characters for Party Mode, more mini games for Party Mode and other extras) and level up...

Once upon a time, King Shahryar discovered that his wife was cheating on him. Though he had the queen and her lover executed, the king was traumatized; he believed that infidelity was a characteristic that all women shared. But since he couldn't go for...

Sonic and the Secret Rings review for the WII

 

Running on empty.

Wide-open mission tree; Customizable skills; Multiple reasons to replay

Watching Sonic run…; Clunky interface; Undercooked plot, setting and multiplayer

Imagine a game where you are a driving instructor. A smartass fifteen-year-old gets in the car with you and puts his foot down on the pedal. You think you are going to die. Fortunately you're in a driving school car, so you have a few controls to...

Sonic and the Secret Rings Game Review - Nintendo Wii

 

Tom Clancy's Splinter..

Better than both the PS3 and 360 versions; great sense of speed with brilliant level designs

Controls may be irritating at times; single-player is somewhat short

Slight improvements don't change Sonic's bad luck in 3-D.

Great graphics ; Innovative ideas ; Party games are fun

Control is uneven ; Level design counteracts Sonic's speed ; Frustrating difficulty due to design flaws

BAMB looks hella sweet.

Sonic and the Secret Rings

 

Many of us have been acquainted with a little blue individual that wears red sneakers. He runs at astonishingly high speeds and has the strange urge to collect gold rings. That character is none other than Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega's primary icon and...

Sonic makes a strong comeback on the Wii on what should prove to be an excellent single player or casual mulitplayer game. Fans should be happy to find that Sonic the Hedgehog is alive and running well.

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

So Sonic has become something of an embarrassment over the years, and his recent attempt at a comeback on the PS3 and Xbox 360 was, in a word, disastrous. So, in a sense there was a lot riding on Sonic and the Secret Rings to salvage the franchise from...

On-rails gameplay helps to keep the game focused on what Sonic is good at – speed ; Annoying peripheral characters stay in the periphery, where they belong ; Ring abilities give unexpected depth for a Sonic game

Controls sometimes feel unnatural and unresponsive ; Challenge levels force the player to repeat the same level over and over

This isn’t Sonic’s big comeback title. While better than the other Sonic games we’ve seen in recent years, Sonic and the Secret Rings still has too many problems to really shine.

Sonic and the Secret Rings Review

 

I still remember the very first game I got for my Sega Genesis on Christmas in 1991 – Sonic the Hedgehog. This was the time of the great Genesis v Super Nintendo war, the first true console war today's gamers may remember. Nintendo would run SNES ads...

In all, Sonic and the Secret Rings is a solid first attempt at a Sonic game for the Wii. It uses the Wii’s main advantage, the controller, to decent effect – there needs to be a good bit of tightening up Sonic’s response, though. The graphics are just...
