Sonic Rush

Hello, this is my first review, but I'll try my best.
Sonic Rush is the first sonic game for the Nintendo DS, it returns to the 2D gameplay like it spiritual prequel Sonic Advance. 
Gameplay (4.5 out of 5)
 The gameplay in the game it's simple, run and jump. With the d-pad and the jump button you can pretty much play the game, like many of the Sonic games, fun and easy. But it adds some new features to the classic Sonic gameplay, like turbo and the tricks, that can be used to reach alternative ways in the level and gain more points. The controls are basically the same for Sonic and Blaze with very few exceptions.
Story (4 out of 5)
You can't really expect a deep story in a Sonic game, but the this one is very well made. Blaze came from another world and she is trying to recover the 7 Sol Emeralds to save the world from Eggman Nega. At the same time Sonic is searching for the Chaos Emeralds to defeat Eggman. they eventually meet and team up to defeat the Eggman team.
Graphics (5 out of 5)
The graphics are was perfect as they could be in a 2D DS game. With fantastic level designs and the 3D sprites it gives the game one of the best graphics on the system.
Length/Replay Value (4 out 5)
The game as two stories and you can only reach the final ending after finding all of the 14 emeralds, and even after that the levels are fun enough to keep you playing again and again for a couple of months.
Closing comments: 
This is a fun game, one of the best Sonic games in recent times, it is also one of the best platform games on the system. If you find this game, even if your not a fan, buy it, you won't regret it.

    It's Sonic on another adventure now on the DS! 0

    Sonic Rush is a good game but there is a little bit more to be desired. Sonic Rush is a lot like Sonic and Knuckles for the Sega Genesis. This updated Sonic game is fun to play and can entertain anyone who grew up with Sonic! The atmosphere in the game is bright and colorful and the layouts are designed well but not not well enough to provide a very hard challenge. The music in this game is what you can expect for a high speed Sonic game. The voice acting in the game can get annoying after awhil...

    Just plain fun. 0

    Sonic has strayed from his 2D lineage in recent years to try and compete with the likes of Mario and Ratchet and Clank in the 3D realm of platforming. With the exception of the adventure series, his attempts have been futile. Now, I had been hearing that the hand-held Sonic games were still solid additions to the series, so when I saw this game sued, I decided I'd give it a try. The graphics here are essentially the traditional 2D look with some tweaks. First of all the characters themselves are...
