Sonic is truly in a world-wide race against time... as the sun sets, a new adventure awakens.

In this new adventure, Dr. Eggman is up to his evil antics again, in his quest for World domination. He unleashes a powerful ray that not only divides the world into several continents, but has an unexpected transformation on Sonic's state.

Sonic must travel across the globe, completing action-packed stages to retrieve the power of the Chaos Emeralds to ultimately save the world... and himself! Sonic's world has been transformed, courtesy of a powerful new game engine that delivers the tight gameplay of a 2D sidescroller in stunning, picturesque 3D environments. Sonic Unleashed takes everything you know and love about Sonic and upgrades it with spectacular scenery, new combat powers, an unexpected storyline, and, of course, blistering speed.
  • Introducing the all-new powerful Hedgehog Engine that delivers a revolutionary gameplay experience, combining ultra realistic graphics with seamless transition between 3D to classic 2D high-speed action.
  • Accelerate to super speed with Sonic Boost, avoid obstacles instantly using Quick Step and accelerate around corners with Speed Drift - this is Sonic at his fastest!
  • Journey and explore seven unique, rich and vibrant continents - sprint across cobbled streets or race through lush jungles on a quest to save the world.
  • With a massive world as Sonic's new playground, follow multiple paths and routes that presents different encounters, rewards and obstacles at every turn, as an unexpected storyline unfolds.
  • Sonic's transformation brings new powers of combat and movement, giving an innovative and challenging Sonic experience.

 I feel the need, the need for speed!

My mate bought me this for my birthday recently and I must say I have really enjoyed playing through it. Story is basic, you have to save the world, which Eggman has split into pieces. Each piece needs moving back into place before Dark Gaia (Big nasty evil earth elemental thingy) gains enough power to finish the job Eggman started.

The game is split into different stages. Speed stages are played out during the day, and these are fantastic. You control Sonic as he runs, jumps, rail grinds through the levels at awesome speed while collecting rings and avoiding, or destroying any nasties in his way. The first two levels throw you into this right away, and are both beautiful. So much so I must have played the second act a million times (My record is 2m:18s and an S ranking).

The game isn't all about speed though. At night Sonic transforms into a Werehog. He gets stronger and slows right down. So the game then plays out like a very limited God of War. You kill enemies with combo's and have to jump on platforms, balance on beams and swing from poles with his now stretchy arms. These levels are fun enough but sometimes very frustrating.

I'm going to warn you now that the difficulty on this game borders on unfair. The later levels are designed to hold you back with some very nasty tricks. If you see an extra life in this game, it usually marks the start of a tricky section where you will die repeatedly. During the speed stages you will quite often run into an enemy or set of spikes or fall into a pit the first time you play them through. Then expect to fall for the same thing again and again until you figure out a way round. Sometimes it's not so obvious where you are going, especially when the speed stages rush past you. Also expect the same for the night time stages. Which are probably worse for this kind of cheap trick. You will have to fight your way past monsters, swing on poles above nasty pits of death and then kill more enemies only to die while balancing on a beam, which will take you back to a checkpoint where you will have to do the same thing all over again! ARG is the word you will be looking for. Don't even get me started on the last Eggmanland stage, which has you switching between Sonic and Werehog to get through the level. Probably the hardest level I have ever had to complete in a game. My time for completing that was 65 min. I have since got it down to 25, but only because I ran away from most of the nasty fights!

So you're asking yourself if it's so frustrating, then why buy it? Well, how many games these days are easy? Most games don't offer much of a challenge. Sonic Unleashed is old school platforming. It's not perfect, but for those willing to give it a try and practice the stages until you master them, there is a cracking game here!

 They should have kept him leashed...

Long story short -
- Sonic = good
- Werehog = bad
- Music = catchy
- Graphics = pixar
- Cutscenes = waaaaay too long and too frequent

Sonic
The sonic levels are absolutely awesome with pixar quality graphics, insanely fast gameplay, unbelievably catchy music but they seem to be a bit short, especially compared to the werehog levels. The game would have been much better if they had just had loads of sonic levels

Werehog
Fun at first, but the levels become very repetitive, boring and predictable. They also take way too long to complete, which sucks cos theyre not as good as the sonic levels.

 frustratingly fun, sonic is back with a dark bang

Finally sega has made a sonic that we can all love again. The game has amazing graphics super speed and a cool twist with sonic turning into a werhog at night. The fighting scenes are great fun and the retro style platfrorming in the daytime is super addictive. It is a game that even when your frustrated with it ypou cant seem to put it down its that fun. The only let down is the camera can get really annoying at times, but none the less a great game and a must have for sonic fans.

 AMAZING!!

This game really is amazing!! The daytime levels are fast and colourful, and the nighttime levels are an interesting style of new fighting gameplay in a sonic game. The music is also brilliant, the story is great, and the graphics are awesome. Buy it!!! You can't miss this!

 SONICS BACK!

And he's better than ever! Forget the other sonic game for the 360, this one has gone back to being exciting, thrilling and totally addictive!
The levels are long and fun! Its a rush to speed along with sonic, and its brutally amusing slashing, bashing and climbing with the werehog! This a must for fans! And new comers alike!
Sonic is back on top once more!
