Sonic the Hedgehog for PlayStation 3 Review
I bought my SEGA Genesis partially because of Sonic the Hedgehog I and II. The Sonic franchise hasn’t done so well since then, and things don’t look like they’ll be turning around anytime soon if this review of the latest Sonic game is anything to go by.
Gamespot took a look at Sonic the Hedgehog for the PS3 and gave it a 4.2. That’s out of 10, not out of 5. Gamespot says that the gameplay is boring and that the ability to play a variety of characters isn’t actually a good thing – they don’t add to the game in any way. And playing Tails is especially tedious because he’s so slow. The camera is terrible.
The graphics aren’t much to look at either, and Gamespot compares some of the visuals to “Dreamcast-era artwork”.
Such a shame. I was actually planning on reliving some of my SEGA Genesis glory days.
