Like i said in the subject, i hope this becomes a regular on tom's forums. This is to get people into whats going on in the modern gaming world if they don't keep up with it regularly. Usually i'll have a review and some modern gaming new's. I'll take suggestions and opions remember i'm doing this for you since i have nouthing better to do right now. So i hope you enjoy and leave feedback.

It's inevitable that game's come out that pretty much a dissapointment, and downright suck beyond all belife. I'm here to tell you those games. This weeks game is called

SONIC UNLEASHED- 360, PS3, wii

Now i know what you may be thinking if you've played it, "it's not all that bad." Ok your right it's not that bad.....during the daytime levels. Let me explain.

In sonic unleashed, your playing as sonic and ONLY as sonic. Which is a godsend since they've been releashing new charaters out the wazoo thinking in their puny little brains that playing as other charaters other than sonic in a sonic game is a good idea. Well i'll tell you it's a small improvement (notice: i like tail's since he was in the sequel when they were still awsome.)

The core gameplay is pretty good in the daytime levels where you play as normal sonic *get to the other part in a bit* and they switched it to.....my god....a 2D level structure. HORAY RIGHT!?....wellllll kinda. It's nice nostala until you realize sonic's going alittle to fast and you dont see death spikes until it's 13 secounds to late and your on your next life. And yes they still have that obsolete live system Which will send you back to the begining of the level if you run out of them. Ok your right its a sonic game and might still need the life system but honistly, just send us to the last checkpoint we were at instead of having to trial and error our way through the mediocure level design.

I will give this game the credit it deserves though, its still a pretty good- above average experiance. Especially after what we had to put up with for the past 6 years after Sonic Adventure 2: battle. But what they do above average in. They make in complete crap.

Enter the nighttime levels where your the warehog.....stupid, stupid, STUPID NAME! Where this game turns into Ninja gaiden hack and slash thats broken and unforgiveable if you miss the time-based-PRESS THAT BUTTON OR YOU FAIL little minigame (plese someone tell me what that's call i forget right now Question ) since the enemy's go back up to full health and you need to get them all the way down again to do it again. Or be like me where all i did was just press heavy attack until they croaked. You meet the joyful 3D style gameply again that has wrecked every sonic game since SA2: battle and it's still annoying as ever and the camera still wants to kill you then laugh at your dead corpse then piss on it because we all know that camera is a evil little SOB.

All in all if you can withstand the horrific warehog levels that are broken, badly designed and have some of the most generic devil may cry, god of war, ninja gaiden combat that is inferior. you'll get a sence of nostala when you play the daytime play as sonic on a 2D layout. But it's certainly not a buy my friends.

This series is dead, It's been dead since they tried to relaunch it in 2006 ever since sonic had an obsession with women seems to be his #1 goal in life. If anyone at sega is reading this (which i doubt) plese stick to the DS of PSP.

I recommened to you guys who want a modern GOOD sonic game to go pick up the Sonic Rush Series on the DS. It's 2D and they do it right, hell they brought back the bounus stages from sonic 2 and reamped it to make it FUNNER! I have it its fun, it has a great amount of nostala, its about 10 buck to pick up now, and its better then this mediocure sonic game. Sure its BETTER than the recent sonic games, but not by that much.


Sonic unleashed: RENT IF YOU MUST, DO NOT BY!!

Final Score: 4.5 out of 10

GO BY SONIC RUSH: go buy it if you want that sonic nostala, or go play the origional games!
JUST NOT SONIC UNLEASHED! emot-argh emot-argh emot-argh

*PLESE READ*
thanks for reading (i know radical change in mood emot-laugh )

Plese leave comments (i'll read them) to see how i could change it to fit what you guys want. I'm going to make this a bi-weekly post on the tombobblender forums. First with a review, then get gaming new's on my secound post making it 2 posts in one week. So having suggestions and what i should review (remember i work at blockbuster) next.

Thank you once again for reading and have a nice day (expect the next one by christmas)

Well, decent review, but this sort of reminds me more of a written summary of Yahtzee's ZP review.

I really don't agree. I got the game for the Wii not too long ago... It was fun and I enjoyed it. I'm still enjoying it actually. I can understand why so many people hate it... It's cause most of you are hardcore Sonic fans. Well I'm not. I also haven't played any of the games you compared the Werehog stages to, nor am I interested in playing them. Maybe it's just me but I think the concept of a "Werehog" is a good one. I enjoy the Werehog stages just as much as the day stages.

well, i'll be simple and brief. Yes i do get alot of inspiration from yatzee (and i do take some of his jokes i.e the heavy attack joke) but i reword it to make non-plagerized and i am trying to move away from that.

and pete, a warehog is a VERY STUPID NAME. why? well, were actually means man(again this is a ZP joke, i left it out because of the plagerizing thing) so a man-hog makes zero sence what-so-ever. so calling it that is just stupid. hence, stupid name.

Secound pete, i grew up w/ sonic. Yes the first console i owned was a genesis (i know kill me now) but playing that game gave me the sence of speed and making me want to go fast in real life and actually helping me and my low self esteem become a great long distance runner in middle school because i wanted that sence of speed.

what i'm trying to say is, besides i'm a good long distance runner, is that i grew up w/ it and i hate to see what it's become. A sad, sad abomination to what was once a GOD-LIKE franchise that held down mario for a couple of years.

If you like it, i cant change your mind, but your one of the view who llike it because you do. I hate it because other than being bad, it has put a big shame on what was one of the best mascots in video game history.

plus, the metascore rating is 60, metascore is actually an average out of all of the game scores. So like i said before, its BETTER than the 3d games in the past. But it still is mediocure.

I totally see where you're coming from. You grew up with the series. I didn't. In fact, I had never played a Sonic game until this (though I'd seen plenty of stuff from several games.) As for the name... Well I just like it. I think it sounds nice and the concept of the actual CHARACTER, Sonic the Werehog, is nice. I personally have had an interest in those kinds of things so that may be why I like it.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. You hate it, I like it. Let's just leave it at that.

What's this "nastala" you keep referring to?
You mean Nostalgia?

Nah, just kidding.
I grew up with Sonic as well, my first system was a Genesis, and I got it with Sonic 2.
I tried the demo out for this game on the XBL Marketplace, and I have to admit, it's pretty darn fun. It can be a little fast and hard to control at times, but it was really enjoyable, and it reminded me a lot of the original Sonic games (Especially the 2D parts). Also, the nighttime stages don't sound TOO bad, I'm a big fan of games like Ninja Gaiden and God of War.
But I agree, the concept of the werehog is just plain stupid. The name sucks, and he looks really annoying, with his arms that are two times bigger than they should be, and his weird shape.
Well, anyway, I think I'm gonna rent this game sometime soon, since I really liked the demo. I'll see if the nighttime stages really are as bad as you make them sound Wink.

i really have to spell check >.>

but everyone is entitled to their own opinion, i can't change that. I can only aware people that this game might not be for you.

But in pete's case. He likes it, and that's fine with me.

Next one will be up soon....by tomarrow

Meh. Old Sonic > New Sonic. I grew up with the original. And i can say for sure that recent sonic is bad compared to the original idea.
