At least some people realize how to make this franchise work. After way too many lackluster 3D adventure games, Sonic Rush returns the series to its side-scrolling glory days by focusing on speed. The levels are designed to rocket you forward as fast as possible at all times, and even with recognizable areas like a giant casino, lush green forest and a floating airship, they’re crazy enough you'll forgive the retread.
Wicked quick level design
Trick system forces you to stay alert
Impossibly better than 3D Sonic games
Even vets will have to warm up
Bosses are boring
Versus mode is bare bones
