      A sort-of sequel to Sonic Generations exhanced

      This is hands down the best Sonic Team release in a very long time Sonic Mania was a homage to early 8bit and 16bit Sonic (while it was a nice fan projected it lacked something) Sonic Forces is a homage to what made Sega such a wonderful unique Publisher/Developer during the 16bit era and the later Sega Dreamcast short lived life span Graphics (It's very much a follow up to Sonic Generations) The game walks a very thin line between 2D and 3D platforming It looks really good the XboxOne X enhanced are awesome The more you play this game the more you'll see what made the Dreamcast so beloved still after all these years It runs close to perfect this is Sega coming out of nowhere screaming "Don't forget about us we ain't dead yet!" If Sega didn't bow out of the Hardware industry this game would've been on there Dreamcast III console Audio: is solid all around some of the licenses music might sound a bit dated to some (If you were lucky enough to own a Dreamcast in '99 and play it for that magical 2 years while it was a hot console) You'll get the music used it complements the game and adds this sort of nostalgia to this title The DTS 5.1 is really nice with audio coming from all around you! Controls: are not perfect once in a while you'll hit a object wrong and lose a big chunk of your rings (This happens mostly with the two Sonic's since one Sonic is classic 16bit sonic he has different abilities while the Sonic Adventure version has more 3D abilities Story is so/so (The story is the weakest thing about this game) It's very bloated If there was a Sonic Character in a past game he or she will more then likely have some type of cameo in this game The fun factor: in my humble opinion this is one of the most enjoyable games of the year It's this interesting love letter to the fans that grew up during Sega's golden era while trying to gain a much younger demo While it's not perfect it's simply fun and will take any child of the 80's back to the first time they started there Sega Genesis and heard the now iconic SEGA logo yell Sega and discover the alternative to the Big N Worth introducing to kids and adults a like this is what Sega can bring to the table! Also all the DLC is free for this game (something very few publisher offer in 2017/2018) 9.2/10

      Great Entry for Sonic Fans

      After playing through the first several levels on my Xbox One X, I was satisfied with how this new Sonic game handled itself. I enjoyed the idea of creating my own anthropomorphic Avatar, playing as classic and current Sonic, and jamming to the fantastic musical score that really draws you into the world of Sonic the Hedgehog--great elements. Not everything is perfect: levels tend to run on the short side; limited customization options of your OC, wild camera angles (sometimes resulting in death until you actually learn a level), inexplicable screen tear during certain cut-scenes, and no option to play as the other classic Sonic characters from previous games. Despite all of this, there seemed to be a fair amount of replay value to earn higher scores, unlock more gear (weapons and aesthetics) for your furry creation, and some downloadable content in the form of playing as Shadow the Hedgehog to delve more into the backstory. It's overall a pretty fun, colorful, and intriguing Sonic addition to the franchise. Give it a shot. You won't be disappointed with it's simple pick-up-and-play mechanics once you get past a little learning curve to successfully navigate some of the more challenging levels while learning the new controls for your own creation.

      Disappointing

      I was pretty stoked about this game, given that the Generations formula was being brought back to another 3D Sonic game. I loved Generations, but this just feels like a lazy expansion to it. In fact, the game controls even worse than Generations somehow and the story is nonsensical. Classic Sonic is completely useless in the game and is only brought back for nostalgia's sake despite controlling much worse. Modern Sonic is okay but the level design is awful; so many cheap deaths akin to Unleashed and they're too quick. Just hold the Boost button and you don't really have to do anything. The Avatar levels are just boring, but they're a little more involved than Classic or Modern Sonic's levels. The saving grace of this game is the soundtrack, which is pretty good. Otherwise, don't pick this one up. GET SONIC MANIA INSTEAD!!!

      Solid Fun Sonic games

      If you ever picked up any sonic game wanting to play a evolved Sonic original, then this game is it. I got this game on sale for my 8 year old. I loaded it up on the Xbox and installed it, so he’ll be able to play it come Christmas. It’s what you should expect from the Sonic Series, so if you’re a fan, at this price the game should be purchased. It’s simple enough for kids and has pleasant cutscenes. Very colorful and looks great on screen. This an easy pick up and go game. Don’t miss it!

      If you are like me and wish today’s gaming options included updated versions of games that we grew up on in the 90s, you know how hard it is to find anything even remotely resembling games like Sonic. Well they finally made a contender. It brings Sonic into the 21st century, albeit with some corny storylines. Whatever the motive, I am just glad game developers spent some time revisiting Sonic for both Xbox One S and PlayStation.

      Not As Bad As You Might Expect...

      This game was critically shamed and most people agreed, but I think that if you manage your expectations you'll come out happy. No, this isn't a nostalgic dream like Sonic Mania, but it also isn't trying to be. It works as its own game and it's fun to play while it lasts. It's not perfect, but I think if you're a Sonic fan and want to play a game that's fun, give it a try.

      I purchased this game as a bday gift for my son. He's been playing older sonic games on the 360 and wanted a new one so I searched and found this for the Xbox one. The game downloaded quickly and he was very happy with it. A little different from older sonic games but overall a very good kid friendly game

      Really boring and not as fun as I thought it be. The characters are stale and too much avatar gameplay. I did like the music as usual for the Sonic series. Hope Sonic Team really goes back to the adventure series and their roots for they have a lack of innovation and direction for this franchise.
