Overview: 2D and 3D Platformer
+ Every level features bright, vibrant colors that distinguish itself from every other level.
+ The game features 9 levels. Each level is split between a traditional 2d platformer and a more modern 3d platformer giving you a total of 18 levels. The levels are chosen from the sonic universe.
+ Every level is designed with multiple pathways providing replayability
+ Achievements are easy to obtain although some can be a bit time consuming.
+ Plenty of mods
The game really requires a controller
After completing levels, challenges become available allowing you to replay certain sections of the level with certain requirements i.e. finish the race before the npc does, collect a certain amount of rings etc. The problem is these are
not very challenging and does very little to change up the gameplay in any meaningful way. These challenges feel repetitive, however they are also completely optional unless you want the achievement.
The game is very short and easy, if you stick to the main content of the game you are looking at about 4-6 hours of gameplay depending on skill level. Going for achievements will extend your gameplay time
The camera angles and controls for the modern levels can be a bit frustrating at times.
As you complete levels/defeat bosses and collect red coins throughout the levels, you unlock skills that can be purchased from a shop. You can then equip different skills that fit your playstyle. These skills are optional and didn't have a major impact on gameplay. You could just as easily complete the game with no skills as you could with some of the more useful ones. Certain skills are nice to have but didn't have a big impact on gameplay.
-The game crashed a lot especially when you play online.
-The story is pretty terrible but can easily be skipped. Regardless, you are not playing this game for the story anyways.
This is my first modern sonic game I've played and from what I've been told it is also the best. This game is really well made and a lot of fun if you are a fan of platformers. I really loved the diversity in the levels as well as the design. Going through the levels again but taking a different path really highlighted how well designed some of these levels are. I recommend this game if you are a fan of platformers.
