Summary

My 9 year old Really likes it.

The Good

I think the aspect of the game that appeals to my 9 year old is that it has her favorite characters and is a multi-player game that anyone has a chance at winning. It gives her a chance to play the game with friends (or parents) who may not know as much about Sonic the Hedgehog. It also gives her a chance against the more advanced players.

The Bad

From my perspective, it is a means of cashing in on Sonic. It is repetitive, the mini-games and events are not that challenging. Each zone takes quite a while to complete, the story line is predictable and the computer players seem to almost always get the roll they need. Furthermore, the graphics are flat and uninteresting compared to the others in the Sonic series on the Dreamcast.

The Bottom Line

I think this is probably a good game for the under 10 crowd. Parents will get bored, but should probably spend time playing it with their kids - then go play one of the Sonic Adventures for some real fun.
