The Critical Attack or Chance Attack is a move used by Sonic the Werehog in the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of Sonic Unleashed. It is a fast combo attack that is used to finish enemies completely.

Description

The Critical Attack is a special type of quick time event that can be initiated on the enemies in nighttime Action Stages after their health has been reduced to below half. Once a downward arrow appear over the enemy, the player can begin the Critical Attack by pressing XboxB/PSObutton. During this procedure, Sonic the Werehog strikes the foe with a series of advanced combo attacks, while the player has to press the correct buttons that appear on the screen before time runs out. If done correctly, the enemy will be defeated instantly, but if done incorrectly, the enemy will attack Sonic, thereby halting the Critical Attack, causing Sonic damage, and replenishing the enemy's own health.

The quick time event for a Critical Attack is different for each enemy, and the buttons the player has to press are entirely random. The time the player has to press these button is proportional to the enemy's amount of health: the less health the enemy has, the longer the player has to pull off the Critical Attack. While doing a Critical Attack, Sonic will be unaffected by outside attacks. Also, using a Critical Attack will force armed Egg Fighters to drop their swords and shields.

Sonic defeating a Titan in a single attack.

This move is highly useful for a couple of reasons: it finishes the enemy off immediately, the enemies release more Chaos Orbs upon defeat, and the player earns a huge amount of bonus points. The performance of Sonic's combos also varies between enemies. For the Egg Fighter, Sonic jumps onto its head and twists it around before kicking it away from in midair, while for the Titan, Sonic launch some aerial attacks before flipping it over. The player also has be careful when doing this move nearing bottomless pits, as both the player and the rewards the defeated enemy gives are at risk of falling into it.
