Sonic The Hedgehog (PS3)
Advantages: Graphics are good
Disadvantages: Gameplay is quite poor
I recently purchased Sonic the Hedgehog for the Playstation 3 the other week for about £15 having played this classic game on other consoles over the years. I have to say honestly that I'm glad I didn't pay that much more for it as I was a bit disappointed with it and didn't feel the game had been advanced at all.
In this game you play as Sonic once more and he is again tasked with saving the world. Princess Elise is kidnapped by Dr. Eggman and you have to stop him before he discovers the secret of the Chaos Emeralds and destroys the world.
The game actually starts with some spectacular animated clips and cutscenes which are actually quite good and lured me into thinking this would be pretty good. You begin in a town where you can talk to other characters you meet on your travels. You are required to complete certain phases and steps before moving on and progressing.
This particular version of the game features two modes for you to play in: Single player and Multi-player.
In the single player mode it features three main characters: Sonic, Shadow who is his main rival and Silver. Each of these characters has their own abilities and skills you can use to your advantage. You do have to go through some mini-games that take a while to unlock some of these abilities though.
The multiplayer mode includes a two-player tag and battle mode. You can also unlock character episode extras. Nothing is particuarly interesting or stimulating in this mode though unfortunately.
As far as the gameplay goes the missions are not great and I found that I had to play certain levels over and over again as there is no real direction or purpose. Some of the levels seem overly hard and others too easy so there is nothing really in between for me anyway.
On a plus note the graphics are very good which is a bonus. The backgrounds and details on each level are above average but unfortunately graphics are not everything when the gameplay is not up to scratch.
Overall, I was quite disappointed with this version and I wouldn't recommend this as I have definately played much better action adventure games.
Summary: Overall, not that great really
