Sonic and The Secret Rings
Description: Sonic and the Secret Rings is a new spin on the old Sonic franchise. The game brought back the sense of speed that the 3D Sonic’s had been lacking prior to it. The game has received mixed reviews from various sites.
The story is completely new, and takes place outside the standard Sonic universe. Sonic travels to the Arabian Nights story to battle an evil djinn, who’s planning to take over the entire story.
IGN – 6.9: “I want to take moment to specifically explain the score. For me, Sonic and the Secret Rings offers moments of greatness where I find myself caught up in the intensity of the experience and, oppositely, moments where I want to pull my hair out or throw the Wii remote down because of imprecise control or insulting design choices.”
Gaming Age – B+: “Sonic and the Secret Rings is an encouraging sign that good Sonic games can still be made. I had a tremendous time exploring the different stages and the skill points add a bit of depth to an otherwise straightforward game. Some of the missions can be extremely difficult at times and I became frustrated with a few of them.”
Gamezone – 75: “Sonic and the Secret Rings is not without flaws, but it stands as the best Sonic in a good long while, and effectively brings Sonic back to his high-speed days of yore. Sonic fans should give this one a look, as it is possibly the best 3D Sonic ever.”
