30 short stages. 3 Play styles. A dozen or so bonus stages. Infinite (pun) possibilities so character customization and all for a really low price. Sure this game isn't anything spectacular, but its nice to have another 3D Sonic game us Playstation owners can actually play (Colors, Lost World and the 3 BOOM games were all Nintendo exclusive) The music is generic with no Crush 40 which sucks and ranges from catchy to repetitively annoying. Thankfully there are less instant death moments like in Sonic: Unleashed and the Buddy system is actually really fun. Different species have different abilities and it makes for fun and slightly varied gameplay. Look you now what you're getting in for when you buy a Sonic game these days. If you a pompous old school purist, go play Sonic Mania. If you'e up for something new and fun, try this game. The critics all said that the stages were lacking, I don't know about you but 50+ total stages plus free Shadow DLC is pretty good, and I actually really like the shorter length of the stages. It makes for faster, funner gameplay and easy replayability, especially when going for those Red Star Rings, Numbered Rings and Silver Moons (100% enthusiasts will understand). Plenty of fun to be had with the goofy story that is taken way too seriously. The bosses suck though and the new big bad guy has no reveal or payoff which was disappointing. He's literally a new masked character with no twists or development and without the free Shadow prequel DLC you know nothing about his character. Also critics said the movement felt clunky like Sonic was too heavy, not once did I ever experience misplaced jump. I guess they just suck at the game.
