Sonic and the Secret Rings review

  • Sonic at blistering speeds
  • Complete homage to the good ol' days
  • Old school challenge
  • Some abilities are useles
  • Challenges requiring memorization
  • Going backwards

Single player mode is multiplayer friendly - the short task lengths welcome pass-the-remote play - and the 40 minigames designed specifically for four friends are a joy. Playing a violin with the remote, spiraling your remote like a canoe paddle and, our personal favorite, snatching away carpets when the genie on top leaps - you’ll love it trust us - make for a simpler, sweeter and more addictive set of games than offered in Monkey Ball. Like Sonic himself, Secret Rings has some pair of legs on it.

So where has this hedgehog been all these years? Wherever he was, it’s done him good. This release simultaneously strips Sonic down and bulks him up, reminding us of the gaming glory that once was.

    Bleh,the storyline I personally think was good...but the gameplay...not so much...all in all a decent game!

    Some good stuff, but mostly it is made of odd design choices and irritation. I can get running through levels again to get extra stuff, but when I have to do it 3 times just to advance the story I get pissed. Also, having to slow down and charge a jump to get enough height for a homing attack? Bad call. I also find way to many cases with the end of the level in sight, run around a corner and get killed by a cactus that takes up 97% of the path forward and spend 3 tries getting past it. 6/10 from me. (I love the final boss though)

    Definetely the best Sonic game I have ever played since 2001. But I did like SR:ZG quite a bit if I try to ignore the half-assed attempt at a decent Wi-Fi mode.

    I actually liked this game a lot.

    This game is great! It really gives you the 'fast-paced' feel that i loved in the older sonic games.
