    Sonic and the Black Knight

    Sonic and the Black Knight is flawed, but there is also a lot to like about it.

    It's very sad to see what one of my favourite characters has become. Sonic the Hedgehog, a character I have enjoyed for many years, has become the topic a bit of a joke to many gamers nowadays. I still love Sonic, no mat... Read Full Review
