Are you looking for a game that suits your needs for action, fighting, and role-playing? Are you a die-hard Sonic fan? Did you enjoy Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations? Welcome to Sonic Forces (2017). I can not help to feel excited every time a new sonic game comes out! I just know that it will be filled with exciting, fast pace story play, that involves a lot of role-playing and action. Let me just say, I and many others had mixed feelings about this game. Let us get into the highlights of this game.
Sonic Forces Storyline
At the beginning of the game, it cuts to a cut scene with Eggman plotting yet another revenge against Sonic, him believing that this time he will not fail against him. He is walking over to what seems to be a dark silhouette of Sonic. Fast forward a little later in the game and Sonic is actually defeated by this silhouette of a character! I was super upset, and I was definitely in my feelings about this one! Our loved unstoppable character Sonic has finally met is his match? From this, the player can get the sense of the somewhat dark and twisted side of Sonic while still maintaining the goofy side of the game. The side that we pretty know Sonic for. After all, it is a game where talking hedgehogs are stopping a man that calls himself Eggman.
Design and game mechanics
For me, this is where the mixed feelings are coming in. For a 3D (Sonic) game. This game did wonders. There were details within the different stages and the cut scenes were, in my opinion, beautifully done. However, it was the same old backgrounds/backdrops they just did not excite me. Yes, the back graphics were beautiful, the dialogue just seemed flat and just not at all like Sonic. There seemed to be little to no comedy that really put a smile on my face. The game movements are from classic sonic, which of course is a plus! However, in some parts of the game, the movement came across as choppy. As if some area were made specifically made for either Sonic or OG character. Speaking of the character customization was a hit for me! I thoroughly enjoyed the range customization for what Sonic Forces had to offer. As one can tell, this game, through my eyes was very mixed. There were parts I just adored and loved, and other parts felt as if this wasn’t really a Sonic game.
Out of 10 rating
If I am honest. The game was not terrible. There are a lot more games where the player just does not want to finish. Sonic Forces is a game that will at least make the player want to continue the game at least. The 3D design work was decent in my opinion. There was actual detail in the design work, however, the backdrops were just not as exciting and did not appeal as much. Character design with no microtransactions, um yes, please! The movement between the players (Sonic and OG character) felt as if they were not in sync with each other.
As a Sonic lover, this game had me in my mixed feelings. However, I will be looking forward to the next game as I hope the creator will take on the feedback from the fans to create some great again!
- As for the 3D (Sonic) game, this was good
- Game Design and detail of the design
- Character creation
- Unlocking by levels, no microtransactions
- Although there was detail in design, same old design
- Not as inventive, same old boring backdrops
- Movement between Sonic and OC character is choppy, at best
