Yes, i'm totally going to trust someone's opinion on a critically panned Sonic game that has Sonic as their avatar.

The game looks kinda cool. I dont think I would by it for myself, but I think my brother would love this game. If I can find it cheap I might have to pick up the Wii version or something, maybe the 360 and you never know when he aint playing it I reckon I might have a bit of entertainment myself for a while.

Reminds me of 3D sonic, which is to say -- not good.

Not the biggest Sonic fan out there, but the game actually looks like a lot of fun for people who actually enjoy the Sonic franchise.
I'm still baffled by the 3.5 it got on GS.

It's great that you are able to look past the games faults but even the hardcore Sonic fans I've talked to personally say it was a disappointment. It might not be as bad as reviews make it out to be, but I think people are fed up with SEGA screwing up the franchise with every installment.

I tried the demo and found it incomplete since there was no werehog level to try which is pretty misleading.  I found the Sonic level in the demo to be a tad annoying because I really don't like it when the controls are taken from you plus it just wasn't all that fun for me even when I was in control of it.  It just felt like a bunch of fluff gameplay that isn't deep and wouldn't be interesting for long.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not attacking you for liking the game or really the game itself.  I realize it isn't for me, but if you enjoy it, then that is fantastic.  It does tend to look fun, I'll give it that.

You are right that a lot of reviews are too negative towards this game and I think it is clearly a case that the series has been floundering for so long that it has become a laughing stock to a lot of the critics.  So much so that I'm sure many went in fully assuming it would suck and so they got what they were looking for.  My guess is that this game is probably much more akin to a 6 out of 10 rather than either extreme end of the scale.  If you like it then you might score it a little higher and vice versa if you didn't.

Guys, thanks for the comments. I gotta say I am not trying to tell people you have to like the game, just that critically its being blown out of proportion how bad its SUPPOSED to be. Some of you saw what I meant through posting the gameplay. If its not your cup of tea I hear ya and that fine.

Zombiehunter there is a difference between you not liking a game and it being awful. I guess you can't see that. ADD huh? I don't think you even know what it stands for.

Hey man, I think Usagi is absolutely right about this issue.  I cant say anything about the demo because I did not play it at all.  I am agreeing with his views on the series.  Most reviewers have been negatively reviewing Sonic games for the past couple years, therefore went into this one thinking it would be horrible.  That opinion is biased however and should be abandoned...games deserve to be reviewed at face value, not on reputation or expectation.

Loved the video as always brother.

The reviews were bullshit and I'm sure Sega's really pissed now too because they worked hard and now they're getting no recognition.

I like the game so I do of what I've played of it thus far and its totally not as bad as what people claim it to be.  There were several games I played last year that felt worse to me.  The snow level you showed looks pretty cool.

The Werehog levels have God of War, Prince of Persia and even a little bit of Metal Gear Solid in them.

God of War levels by pressing circle and stuff.
Prince of Persia with the pole swinging and jumping.
Metal Gear Solid because an exclamation mark came over the enemies head when he saw Sonic.

Pretty bad. The game would have been somewhat decent if it weren't for the wearhog parts.

I don't understand. There is a demo. Most of the people hating on it have (hopefully) played it. Myself included. It can gargle my balls.

I have both versions, the Wii version is a 5/10 kind of deal, and the XBox version is NOT fun. Trust.

Zombiehunter, What does me saying sweet while playing indicate that I have ADD? I am being a prick? Your the one sounding immature, if you don't like the game fine but no need for nasty comments against me.

Like I said you don;t like the game fine, but the reviewers are unfairly scoring the game. There are far worse games than this "Movie games are some of them"

I have to agree. The answer btw is very bad. Just like every other Sega Sonic game in the last I don't know how many years. I also love how you constantly say "How can this game get low ratings? its awesome!" "yeah this is a 3.5 guys, a 3.5, bullshit, this game is sweet!". You aren't the first person to disagree with reviews, but when it gets what it deserves everywhere, and nearly everyone that plays the game or the demo alone finds it terrible, no, there isn't something wrong with people or "the reviewers." Maybe you(judging by that avatar) just suck up every Sonic game that ever comes out regardless of its actual quality.  The day you get qualified at a respective review site, would be the only thing to increase your input that "reviewers are unfairly scoring the game", and even then it would be dumb. No one is saying its not possible for you(or a few other people) to not like this game, or any other sonic garbage that Sega puts out anytime soon, but the rest of us, and the reviewers, just don't.  So I suggest just accepting the fact that your opinion of the game is different than others, instead of whining about it, and get over it.

The only other thing I have to comment that completely makes your opinion of this even more worthless would be thinking the Werehog idea wasn't bad.

I will admit, the Sonic scenes look pretty awesome, though those Wherehog scenes seem SO boring. Great video dude, awesome quality.

Alaska is one of the worst examples of the gameplay of Sonic Unleashed.

It's just incredibly linear and all you do is run. It proves the bad reviews for the game.

I recommend other levels, like the Italy one or the China one.

I bought this game for 360. I think it's one of the best sonics ever. Don't understand the reviews. Maybe they just aren't paying off the reviewers

I am baffled buy the way some are thinking. I can understand not liking the game. But, I still don't think its 3.5. I mean it scored lower than Sonic 2K6 which was a horribly made game. How can this score lower?

I like Sonic and most of the games I find enjoyment. That still doesn't change that I can unbiasedly voice my opinion on how it was reviewed unfairly.

I find the game in the 6 to 7 range. Yes there are problems, I just wanted to show that its not as BAD as REVIEWERS are making it out to be. If you don't like this type of game THAT IS a whole different matter and THAT is fine.

I hate it when people underestimate games and give them low numbers, just like merc 2.
anyway, I am not a big fan of Sonic but I think I had better play this game to see how good or bad it really is.

It's not a bad game.  You're taking way too much value in the opinions of Jeff and his cohorts.  The game is actually pretty awesome when you're playing as straight up Sonic.

Nice trolling attempt. Riddick is widely accepted as one of the best movie games ever made, and a damn classic of the Xbox in its own right.

Yeah, the visuals in that fast part were nice but other than that it looks dumb. It looks like you have no control over Sonic. It seems like a game that plays itself on the fast parts. The werehog stuff looks like a shitty beat em up. 

Sonic sucks now, get over it.

You can do what I did.  I bought the PS3 version, then download someones save file off the internet, then loaded up that save so I could just play all of the incredibly fun day time levels, and ignore the hell out of the werehog stuff.  I'm the man.
