Re: Super Sonic Galaxy

I forgot to add that we can ignore that this engine has been used previously and the game is a spinoff with moderately-positive reviews and low sales. Ignoring for a moment that the game really doesn't play very much like Unleashed at all, and that you being determined to hate everything despite no...

Re: Super Sonic Galaxy

I thought SatAM was queer when I was 5 just as I do now. I have never enjoyed this garbage at all and my opinion on it has not really changed for nearly two decades. Saying I have to regress into some sort of child's mind is not valid. If you never enjoyed saturday morning cartoons then you're not ...

Re: Super Sonic Galaxy

Sure, the it's-a-blue-cartoon-hedgehog-what-do-you-expect defence has always been around And that argument has always been stupid. But there's a difference between "bad" and "not for me", and I certainly don't think you can say that the cutscene is objectively bad just because the humour channels s...

Not lisp! It's Wisp, with a 'W'. Also salad pants! IM JUST GUNNA CALL THEM ALIENS KIDS HUHUHUHUH My point was that none of this is interesting or funny. This is such an utterly misguided complaint. SEGA have openly advertised this game as "the one for kids" (even if it will ultimately end up pleasi...

Re: "Sonic Chronicles" trademarked by Sega

Let's not forget that wonderful Doomsday Zone remix, which takes one of the best songs from Sonic's heyday and transforms it into a series of beeps and boops!

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

Yahtzee's shtick is picking up flaws in a game and extrapolating upon them in a humorous manner. You can't really say that the flaws he talked about don't exist, even if the way in which he described them was a bit overblown. The only disagreeable part was "Sonic needs to die", but then really, you ...

Re: Ivo

When, why & how did Eggman leave the party to set that up to begin with? It's explained somewhere in the game prior to entering the Twilight Cage that time passes differently in there than it does in the rest of the universe. When Sonic and co go in there to hunt down Ix, Eggman stays behind for so...

Re: Ivo

One thing I do want to ask others who've finished it is whether I missed anything regarding the whole "Dexter" nonsense. Like, is it just me or is he never mentioned again past the first half of the game? Unresolved plot point? Or did I just pick the wrong dialogue options (I was a dick to Amy all ...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

While we're talking about length, I sort of think that S3&K is pretty much just the right length for a Sonic game, regardless of whether we're talking about Genesis Sonic or next-gen Sonic. You could probably beat the game in three or four hours the first time through, but going back for Emeralds an...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

To be honest, that's the sort of review I'd probably have written if I'd sat down to write just after beating Eggmanland. Here's my speculation about why the Wii version is getting better reviews than its HD brothers: The 360 version makes you angry. Every time I played it - prior to memorizing the ...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

The whole game - well, the Sonic sections at least - takes the "memorization" aspect from the Rush series and magnifies it tenfold. What frustrates me more than anything is that most of the levels in the game are literally impossible to beat the first time through without dying - not because they're...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

Yeah, thanks. I got through this hellhole about 45 minutes ago. My point still stands about the shitty level design; This should not have been the first time you need to use that move, and even if it was , there should have been a 1Up nearby so you didn't have limited attempts to figure it out. But ...

Okay, FUCK this game. Fuck Eggmanland. I got about 40 minutes into the level with seven lives left in hand. I came up to a Sonic section, where you're getting boosted through a tunnel via those air boosters that require you to push the right button to fire them. Also, there are multiple purple blade...

And those having medal problems; hell, I only had to seek out some medals like once . Most of them were right in my way or in plain sight. I'm not saying they're a completely justified game feature, but come on, don't you guys explore the levels/hubs at all? I've supposed to go into Adabat Day, but...

One full werehog level. One full daytime level. One or two extra, non-essential daytime levels.

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

It's a pain in the ass. They're all off the beaten track, which means if you play the level fast - like you're supposed to, and it's also the most fun way - you're pretty much going to miss every single goddamn medal. Day time stages have fewer medals than night time stages, generally, and they also...

So it turns out that in order to progress, I just needed to go near the Professor. For some reason. Who knows? I talked to him, he said "ohoho the world is getting fixed thanks to you my boy!" and then suddenly more levels were available. I don't see the point in making me do that. As a side note, I...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

rant Given you evidently haven't played the game at all yet, I think it is a bit preposterous of you to to assume that the game wouldn't be infinitely better if the werehog levels were removed. Because, you know, it would be. Certain aspects of the game are starting to annoy me, and I'm certainly n...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

Here's a scenario I encountered in the second werehog level. I entered a room filled with enemies, which I had to kill. After killing them, I noticed two switches in the middle of the room. Pulling these switches raised/lowered two platforms against the left-hand wall. The first platform would raise...

I just went out and bought this for the 360. I'm about to pop it in, but I couldn't help laughing at the obligatory "reviewer quote" on the back on the box. Credited only to some entity known as "360" (360 Magazine I assume), it reads: "breaking the sound barrier and moving at supersonic speed." - 3...

Alright, so does anyone who's played the 360 version have a final verdict on the game? Primarily, is it worth a purchase? My local EB has it in stock, however my local Blockbuster doesn't have it available for rent and they don't seem to be expecting it any time soon. As long as the general consensu...

Didn't Sonic '06 sell like the remarkable pile of shit that it was? I seem to remember it being chuckled about here soon after the game's release.

I watched the final battle/cutscenes of the Wii version of Youtube. Looks terrible.
