I'm not a huge fan of this game, but the 360/PS3 versions were pretty good. I loved Spagonia, but mainly b/c of the music. Am I right? Best level music in the game, Spagonia?

Can you do Mazuri and Apotos next? Please!I love this. Personally Mazuri has some of the best daytime music, besides Apotos and Spagonia daylevals. Also the werehog and Chip are a nice add to the sonic series. The hedgehog engine is better than any other sonic engine i've seen in past games. Although Sonic heroes was a good game,but anyways Sonic Unleashed best sonic game ever!

Well, the lighting here is certainly appealing! Great work!

I'm a bit disappointed that the Wii/PS2 missed out on so much...but, I guess in some ways, it allows the experience on those consoles distinctively different from the "Next-Gen" consoles. And that's not always a bad thing. ^_^

A stage that really amazed me was Spagonia, since it's very similar to the small spanish cities and medium-sized towns.

With few strokes you recreated very well the clean environment and cold feelings of the stage.

I say the Wii version got gypped out of the Hedgehog Engine, we could have had the 360's awesome levels if they had found a way to make a Wii compatible version of it.

The wii and PS2 couldn't handle the hedgehog engine, hence why they had to use an old engine they already had lying around. If it was possible, they would have done it I'm sure, as it would have saved them from having to develop a completely separate version of the game.

-And probably wouldn't have ended up sending it's popularity further into the tank for that reason. Sonic Team should have been given enough time to make a standard-definition version of the Hedgehog Engine so we could have all had the same versions of the game. Just because the Wii's specialty isn't graphics doesn't mean they can be lazy by taking out two whole entire continents just because they couldn't incorporate something they made, which they should have had the expertise to modify for the Wii and PS2.

Taking something next-gen and squashing the crap out of it until it works on old hardware isn't easy, and often compromises the quality a lot. It's pretty standard for the lower-end systems to get their gameplay/levels altered to suit the hardware better. What you need to understand is the major things that made the hedgehog engine what it is just wouldn't be possible on that older hardware. The majority of it IS graphical stuff, and I think putting the next-gen levels on weaker hardware would have looked horrible. It's better to design something from the ground up to make use of the features available on that particular system than try and get one thing working equally across all systems.

Is sonic unleashed worth buying considering I never felt the need to complete "Sonic the Hedgehog" on the PS3 :(

Sonic the hedgehog next-gen was so unbelievably bad.. I couldn't get my head around how many bugs I encountered after just 5 minutes of playing it at my friends house!

No, Sonic Unleashed is nothing like Sonic next-gen. It's a whole new game engine, a new team and a new producer. I've encountered hardly any bugs, so it's rare you'll die because the game did something retarded, although there are a few places you'll question the level design, but it's not a deal breaker. Have you tried the demo of it? it's on the PSN store, it's the first proper level of the game, it should give you a good idea of what the speed levels are like in the game. :)

Really? Other than the slow loading times, I had no problems with Sonic the Hedgehog next-gen. In fact, it is my favorite Sonic game of all time.

That wasn't actually ment to be an angry smiley, didn't think DA would convert it like that. Anyhoo, if you enjoy the game, that's fine. I'm not gonna tell people what they can and can't enjoy. I personally found it difficult to enjoy because of the amount of glitches I ran into from just trying to play it normally, but I can understand that some people would be more willing to overlook those things. :)

It's k. On second thought, I think I had some glitch issues on Sonic's story. In fact...White Acropolis! The Snowboarding part with Sonic! I think I had some issues there, but other than that, that part of the level just flat out sucked. Yeah, Sonic's story was the hardest for me. Then again, the final story wasn't exactly a walk in the park.

Sonic Unleashed...I originally had it for PS2. Big mistake. I played the 360 version, which was much better. I might be getting it for the getting it for PS3. But if there's anything good about Sonic Unleashed, it's the music. My favorite was Spagonia's day music. The only bad music: The Werehog's battle bgm. It's good at first, but it gets pretty annoying after awhile.

I guess the night time enemies look like they might have come from a zelda game, but other than that it's not even vaguely similar. You're probably thinking of Sonic and the Black Knight

Probably. Though, it's about freakin' time they give him something other than the dash and homing attacks. Hell, Shadow got to use guns in one of the only decent Sonic games made since Sonic and Knuckles, and Sonic 3-D Blast.
