I've never played it, but lot's of people told me it was bad.Blue Light 00:42, 1 January 2009 (UTC)Blue Light

I dont hav the game but the scenes look nice i think the game is ok. Dawnthehedgehog 16:25, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

From what I heard, it was full of glitches.Now, I don't have the game, but I say there is only one problem. Shadow = no guns. Flashfire212 03:09, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

True. I loved Shadow the Hedgehog. The gun idea was awesome, but lately they just screwed up his character without them.Blue Light 14:12, 16 January 2009 (UTC)Blue Light

I know. After I clocked Shadow the Hedgehog, I wanted to find out other stuff about him, so I went to a friend and he told me that. Don't think I wanted to know. He can still drive and use turrets thought. Hmmmmm. Flashfire212 22:43, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

I have watched playthroughs of this game and I think that the driving techniques really fits Shadow's style, but when he's driving a motorcycle, it controls like crap!Blue Light 22:28, 17 January 2009 (UTC)Blue Light

and then the end was bad! Dawnthehedgehog 02:39, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

It was a crapshot...Blue Light 03:00, 23 January 2009 (UTC)Blue Light

I can bet. Flashfire212 11:02, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

My friend told me the first part is nothing but plain boring. But I don't think he hates the stuff after the first part. Rainbowroad6w 14:25, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

I do question why Shadow accuse Sonic as a faker and then goes driving around in vehicals that are slower than Sonic.--Mystic Monkey 00:17, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

OK, that makes no sense. Shadow can run faster than that.......I think Flashfire212 05:30, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

If you played the minigame where Shadow must chase after cars on a highway in a buggy with a rocket launcher attach to it, the answer will be clear.--Mystic Monkey 20:07, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
Now I get it. Lol. Flashfire212 05:29, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

if u ask me why people dislike it its because blaze dies in the end & possibly also the fact that sonic was kissed directly by elise - blazecream18

Actually, according to the reviews, it was mainly two things: first, the loading times. Even on youtube, it was FOREVER. Second, when I played, I began to notice something I agreed to. The controls for Sonic 06 were too eratic for the speed involved. Maybe if they were a little slower like in Sonic Adventure 1 & 2, then it would have been better.--Milotheechidna 01:37, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Agreed.. Dawn the Hedgehog 16:20, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Another I noticed is the plot, I must admit a n00b fan could do better and remember to check the subtitles beforehand. I couldn;'t tell what was comming and going. I guess in this paradox no one knows how risky time travelling stories are.--Mystic Monkey 22:50, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Another reason some people don't like it because Princess Elise kisses Sonic, I nearly puked when she locked lips with him.--Kit the Cat 23:01, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Oh yeah, forgot about that. This is why I am careful when planning my fna games, I can't go all willy nilly on what I personally think it's best which is why my fan character, though wants to be a reconised hero, doesn't get directly involved with Sonic unless the plot needs a character for it.--Mystic Monkey 00:22, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Well I have to blame the reviewers on that, they just seem to hate Sonic now days no matter what. People just seem to repeat what they've heard, and say it's bad as if it's a fact. Yes I'll agree that the load times are bad, but that's about it. The game isn't SUPER glitchy like everyone makes it out to be, there are a few glitches here and there, but every 3D Sonic game has had a few. Also I don't think the motorcycle controlled badly, I thought it played fine. (I'm actually playing the game right now). Also, why can't Shadow use vehicles? They can go places he can't normally go, plus they're equipped with weapons, so it makes getting from Point A to Point B that much easier. He WAS on a mission after all, he had to use what he could to get the job done. Plus if you'll read the back of the game case, the tag-line is "THIS TIME, SPEED WON'T BE ENOUGH...", I'm pretty sure they were trying to say that this game is bigger, and about more than just running around. Also, I'll agree with anyone who says that the game had a steeper learning curve than previous Sonic games. But the speed wasn't so bad. It can be tough at times, but I enjoyed it. The controls weren't that awkward. I've played games with worse controls. I'd also like to note I don't know why everyone has a problem with Elise kissing Sonic. Ever read, The Frog Prince? In the modern version of the fairy tale, the princess kisses the frog, and he becomes a prince. I don't see what the big deal is, if Disney is even making a movie about it (albeit with a twist), then it mustn't be too big a issue. I actually liked the ending to the game. Though, I think the entire thing might have worked better as a film than a game, I still enjoyed it, and I don't think the game is that bad. Though, I'm sure a lot of people will disagree with me. --Yoyoddd 02:50, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Maybe you have to get all S Rank is no problem.

The reason no-one likes Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) is because it's crap.--The prefessional launchballer is The Duchy of Effenhauer Junior and is very resourceful. 08:37, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

I'm guessing just because the characters were so slow (ESPECIALLY Silver). The storyline was odd, but it made sense to me. In response to Yoyoodd's comment, the game isn't very glitchy, like you said. There are a lot of glitches in the game, but you have to find them, and some actually increased the replay value, in my case (particulary getting Silver in Blaze's Crisis City and Tails in Sonic's Wave Ocean; those 2 were simply awesome). Unlike in Sonic Heroes, the levels order is changed for each character, so the storyline made much more sense. Really, if Team Dark starts out in Eggman's base, how in the world do they end up in Seaside Hill? Anyway, although the layout isn't changed, there's a bunch of alternate passageways accessible with each character. All in all, I thought the game was pretty awesome; most critics absolutely HATE Sonic; "The jump button is not as responsive as it should be..." Some people can be such, well, ya know... Hilarys. :) Try not to let them bother you too much. --SSRider 05:47, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

I loved this game! It's my favorite. Except or the Sonelise idea. Human + hedgehog = ?

SonElise is a bit streched.--Mystic Monkey 22:43, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Never really played the game, but when I played the demo at Frys, my mind blew up. the first time I went on a rail, I was stuck in one place. And Sonic was really, really slow. Sonic and Elise=stupid. I don't get it: A hedgehog with a human?! The homing attack is a big problem too: You go in the air, homing attack, and it carries you a short distance. It's very jerky. Mephiles is stupid. How many dopplegangers do we need?! Also, too much glitches, though it actually makes the game fun. Also, I hate, hate how the game developers and artists try to make Sonic and crew look: Realistic. Like, human-like textures. It just looks weird. The sonic from Unleashed looks much better. It's Sonic's worst birthday present. ~~Tawny the Rabbit LET'S DO IT TO IT!

I hated the realism too. Though the western cartoon style in Unleashed was a bit better. I prefer they stuck with Anime since Sonic Adventure even if they were mostly polygon.--Mystic Monkey 00:18, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
  • I found my old copy. I never actually completed this game yet and decided since I haven't touched it in ages might a swell delete file and start from scratch. I remember why I hated this game now. Poor inverted camera controls, high-speed running mistakes such as falling out of runway and dying in ridiculous manners. Slow movement and controls meaning D ranks fo'shizzle!--Mystic Monkey 19:18, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

I haven't played the game yet (lack of game console), but I spoiled myself by reading the story beforehand. The story I find interesting but I have to say it doesn't make sense at all. Take these few examples for one thing. SPOILERS ALERT!(1) If Silver traveled to the past and gave the blue emerald to Elise, and she had it all those years, how can you explain when Sonic gathered and used ALL 7 seven emeralds in all the previous games to this one? (2) If Mephiles can time travel and he existed in the future, why didn't he just absorb the Iblis of the future instead of going through the trouble of sending Silver and Blaze to the past to kill Sonic? They apparently made it clear that the princess was dead in the future the same way she died with Eggman and Sonic witnessed the crash. So Iblis was going to be released anyway if she died, right? (3) What was Blaze doing with Silver if he's from 200 years in Sonic's future? She was supposed to be a princess from another dimension. Btw, she didn't die in the game, she merely used 2 chaos emeralds to send herself to another dimension. And can you cay she somehow became a princess AFTER she was sent to that other dimension? Unlikely, she doesn't recognize anyone from the Sonic universe in Sonic Rush, unless she somehow got amnesia, yet she seemed to somehow faintly recognize Sonic when Mephiles mentioned the "blue hedgehog" (4) I don't really care about Princess Elise falling for Sonic, a lot of girls have (Amy being the only of the same species) but he never sticks with anyone in the games so I didn't think Elise would be any different, though I did gack when she kissed him. I was like "WTF", Snow White?! The use of the chaos emeralds for his revival was no surprise, but the kiss was. O_o! (5) How did Elise remember Silver? The moments I saw him with her she was unconscious. (6) The opening for Sonic and Silver's stories are different, yet they occur in the exact same area. Where Sonic has a blazing background (no pun intended), Silver has a calm night sky as if Eggman never attacked at the beginning, which he did./// I'll stop now since I did say it would be a few examples. I don't hate or dislike the game. I do find it very interesting and the story is very exciting, but it doesn't make sense with the timeline of the Sonic game universe. I think the writers rushed themselves to write something.Ryuu Lynx 18:45, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

We are aware of the contradictions... though you pointed out some even I wasn't aware of. But yeah theres lots of contradictions. The plot was just poorly written and the game was rushed. About your 3rd example with Blaze there has been theories (Mostly by me) but other than that more plotholes than the sea of holes.--Mystic Monkey 20:43, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Well... for number one, that can be explained with one of two ways. First, when Silver traveled back in time and gave Elise the Chaos Emerald, that would have effectively created two Chaos Emeralds within the same time period. So one could say that the Chaos Emerald that was used by Dr. Eggman or Black Doom or whoever, was the original, and the one that Silver brought back in time, was the newly created time duplicate. (Sorry if that was confusing.) Another way of explaining it is this. Sonic '06 was supposed to be a reboot for the series. It was supposed to keep all of the main characters for the most part, while starting up a new story, a new history if you will. It can be argued while all the characters are in the game, all the past adventures never happened. Which is supported by the fact that none of the previous adventures are mentioned in the game besides small continuity nods, and things such as that.

Now for number two. Note, that this is just a theory I have of my own. I believe that when Elise died, Iblis would be released. However, Iblis had a seal on him, that prevented the two from merging. The only way to break this seal, would be to release Iblis the "correct" way. Through Elise's tears. Which of course set in motion the events of the game. Again though, just a possible theory.

For number there there are many answers. Yes a possible one is that Blaze was sent to her dimension and got amnesia. Though, another answer would be that the Sonic Rush story-lines are set in a different universe (a different continuity) than the rest of the games. Again though, it could be possible that since Sonic '06 was a reboot, it took the characters, while discarding everything else, in favor of starting anew.

Skipping ahead to number five. Well, there are two ways that I think Elise could have remembered Silver. She may have seen him at some point during the whole thing, and then remembered him, or perhaps knew him subconsciously, then when Sonic appeared those subconscious memories flooded back into Elise's mind. Another way of looking at it is that Iblisremembered Silver. Silver was the one who captured him after all. It's plausible to say that Iblis was somehow giving Elise visions (like in the opening sequence where she sees Iblis, along with Soleanna set ablaze). It's probably that Elise's powers came from Iblis, so it's not to hard to assume that he could implant thoughts, and visions in her head. If that were the case that would probably explain the fire surrounding Silver.

Number six... is a bit more hard to explain. Though, you could probably say that it's similar to how in Sonic Adventureif you play as Sonic, you defeat Gamma, but if you play as Gamma he defeats Sonic. Same if you're playing as Tails, then he is the one to defeat Gamma. It doesn't affect the story really, it's just a slight inconsistency depending on who you play as. As for the timeline of the universe, I would assume it comes before Unleashed, but after Shadow. Though, since the events of the game never happened, due to Solaris (and the characters) meddling with time, the entire story would just be Sonic briefly visiting Soleanna during their festival, then him leaving promptly after. Personally, I think the story is pretty well written, sure there are some inconsistencies, but they can be explained if you look deep enough. Though, to be fair, it's not entirely the writers fault, dealing with time travel at all is bound to cause some problems. Hope that helps! --Yoyoddd 01:52, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
