Trivia

English dubbing began before the game script could be finalized, as a result there are several dialogue-to-subtitle inconsistencies. The Scepter of Darkness that imprisoned the new villain Mephiles had gone through multiple changes in just these few months, first being referred to as the Tears of the Sun, then the Book of Darkness before finally becoming the Scepter of Darkness.

The Worst Sonic Game of All Time if not the Worst game of All Time
19 October 2011 | by arorashadow_2003See all my reviews

Sonic The Hedgehog 2006 promised to be the milestone 15th Anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. The game promised to improve a lot of the mechanical limitation of previous Sonic 3D series but instead it proved to be a fatally broken game that was poorly conceived, overly rushed, bugged beyond comprehension and prove to be the most frustrating and most unsatisfying game to play both of the Sonic the Hedgehog series. I can only give a brief rundown of just how broken the game because someone could easily write a full book of just how bad it really is.

The game's physics are sloppy, Sonic has gone from being the fastest thing alive to being slightly faster than Shadow the Hedgehog. I think Shadow might even be faster in this game than Sonic is. This is especially obvious when Sonic is carrying the Princess which you will be doing plenty of in this game. The Homing attack is equally bad which slows you down more than speeds you up and has pauses you in mid air. So rather than Sonic continuing to each enemy in a ball he uncurls in mid air and one wrong move will send you careening off your course and to your death.

All thought Sonic lacks much of his speed from previous games he still can get pretty fast. But even when you do manage to get enough speed there's always something in your way to instantly slow you down. When Sonic slows down he doesn't just slow down he gets knocked back on his ass. This is something seen in most Mario games of the present era but why is this happening to Sonic? This makes timed missions more hard than they should be.

The control scheme is extremely unstable, when you get Sonic running at high speeds along a narrow ramp you probably will go flying off into a bottomless pit, it's aggravating! The Camera will probably be your worst enemy in this game as it's never where you want it to be.

Besides the game's awful game mechanics we were also treated to a half-assed story line of Sonic falling in love with a human girl. Yeah, what? Now Sega deserves a lot of the blame for pushing this game for a quick Christmas time release, but Sonic Team is still equally to blame. Sonic Team is the one who designed the game with the most ridiculous levels including the Mach Speed Levels where you run with little to no control at a million miles per hour, wrote the dumbest scenario in any video game ever. This game deserves the same fate as ET for the Atari, be buried forever.
