    Welcome back Sonic. Damn, I missed you.

    Remember when Sonic was fun? I sure do. The Sonic series went downhill with EVERY 3D installment. I enjoyed the first Sonic Adventure immensely... on the Dreamcast. The dated and clumsy gameplay of 3D sonic really got ba... Read Full Review

    Wow, this game is the WORST Sonic game...EVER!!!

    I got Secret Rings for my birthday. I THOUGHT it was going to be interesting thrill of a game, but what I got was the polar opposite. To start the game off the theme song kept playing over and over again, which ju... Read Full Review

    Worse than Sonic 06! (Go ahead and disagree with me, I don't care...)

    Story:The game begins with everyone's favorite blue hedgehog snoozing on a sofa after reading a book about the Arabian Nights as he was awakened by placing his hand on a ring randomly placed on the coffee table next to h... Read Full Review

    A Bad Sonic Game... Join the Club

    I bought this game with high expectations, the trailers looked great, I finally got the game... What a waste of money! The story is isn't worth mentioning, the gameplay has unfinished controls, the multiplayer isn'... Read Full Review

    Sonic and the secret rings sucks!

    I enjoyed sonic 06 more than I enjoyed this. The controls are so clunky. Sonic is always moving forward. The story is not that bad. The music can get repetitive sometimes. But most of its good. The graphics are good. Ov... Read Full Review

    Sonic's first ever Wii game was not that bad at all.

    My 53rd review after The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Okay, I can see the main reason why people dislike this game, maybe because of the controls, especially in the party games. But it looks fun and it has my favor... Read Full Review

    Sonic gets sucked into a story book, and sadly that's where the idea for this game probably should've stayed.

    Boros here, and I've gotta teel ya. This is probably one of the strangest games in the Sonic library. Sonic in Arabia? How would anybody come up with something like that? Well, what ever it was, it must have been pre... Read Full Review

    Sonic is back in one of his best games.

    Story: The story is pretty basic, this time it's not Eggman that's the bad guy. Instead it's a genie named "Erazor". Your goal is to stop him and there's 8 different worlds (1 is a training world where you learn how you ... Read Full Review

    Oh God!!

    This is quite possibly the worst Sonic game in a long time. This game is so horrible. It would be easier to control Blanka on cocaine than this piece of crap game. As a fan of Sonic since it's 16 bit days, you hopefully ... Read Full Review

    While Secret Rings shows a change of formula for the better, not at all is it for everyone.

    Sonic the Hedgehog's had a rough time adapting to the newer generations. While the Sonic Adventure games and perhaps Heroes were great starts for Sonic's true 3D debut, many other faulty products came to the scene to rui... Read Full Review

    Some secrets are best kept to themselves.

    Sega loves to take what used to be a heralded video game character by the name of Sonic and drag him through the mud. Sonic and the Secret Rings is not just mud. It's a swamp. It's a waterhole that's drying up. It's ... Read Full Review
