Enjoy old-school Sonic racing, replete with loop-the-loops, bounce-pads and thrilling laps, by catching Sonic Unleashed from Game for only £9.98!
Bolted through a price-comparison, Game's deal for Sonic Unleashed easily outpaced its rivals as the cheapest you can find! Sonic Unleashed earned a dissapointing 60/100 on MetaCritic, with critics citing the 'Werehog' sections, where Sonic transforms into a wolf-like Stretch Armstrong, as the game's downfall, with even the old-school pseudo-3D racing portions unable to rescue its rating!
In Sonic Unleashed, the nefarious Dr Eggman is at it again, splitting the world apart for some strange reason. In order to repair his fractured home, Sonic must collect the fabled Chaos Emeralds. To do so, he must run really fast through sun-baked adobe towns with improbable loops and desolate stretches of road. But when the full moon rises, Sonic transforms into the aforementioned Werehog, and instead of running past robots really fast, he must hit robots really hard.
The differences between the racing and 'Werehog' sections are night and day - Get it? -. With the race-sections a nostalgic recreation of old-school Sonic many of us fell in love with, the 'Werehog' bits simply reek of another Sega attempt at 'broadening their audience', hoping to cash in on the success of God of War with tacked-on hack-and-slash combat. It seems with every Sonic game, Sega take one step forward, and a couple of steps back.
