Feels rushed, but worth playing once.

This is a game that had the potential to be good. The story is interesting and the characters are as we expect them to be. Omega's voice bugs me, though. I'm used to his voice in Sonic Heroes and Shadow the Hedgehog, not this strange office robot voice! (Not tough-sounding at all!) Anyways, the graphics are nice, I guess, but the resolution is 720p instead of my preferred 1080p. Still, the cinematic cutscenes are beautifully rendered. As for gameplay, there are many glitches. Silver's story and Shadow's story were both good and fun, (with the exception of having to play as Rouge, since it's nearly impossible to let go of the wall you're climbing at-will), Sonic's story was downright frustrating! He is the buggiest by far in my opinion! He moves fast enough to mess up the frame-rate and his homing attacks feel so... slow. (Especially compared to the speed of say, Sonic Heroes.) Grind rails are difficult to land without homing attacks and the camera can be rather annoying at times, often being too close to sonic and the inabilty to zoom out). If you stop sideways on a wall, you'll fall, but if you stop up-side-down in a loop, you'll stay there. Dash Panels can be evil, causing you to run directly into obstacles or even off edges. And don't even get me started on the high-speed! Most of Sonic's action stages are split into two parts: the actual level, followed by a high-speed stage. During high-speed, you basically have to just keep running really fast and avoid obstacles. Easy right? Wrong. It's really difficult to maneuver on the ground and you can't change directions mid-air, forcing you to time your jumps or die. And die you will, over and over again. Occasionally, you will glitch through things, but it's much more common to get hit by an object that you clearly dodged. (Stupid invisible tree!)
The game also incorporates the idea of shops. You have to buy upgrades with rings. To obtain rings, you can complete town missions, which range from rediculous to annoying. But I wouldn't mind town missions so much if I didn't have to wait and wait and wait for the darn loading screens! I've never seen a game with so many loading screens! You talk to a (generic) npc and accept the mission. Loading screen. Single line of dialogue. Loading screen. Complete/fail mission. Loading screen. Single line of dialogue. Loading screen. Then you're placed back in town to repeat the process if you failed, or carry on with the game. It's extremely annoying!
There are good things about this game, though. It plays like a Sonic Adventure game and has an amazing soundtrack. Shadow can use vehicles, which is-for the most part-a plus. Silver's story offers a completely different gameplay style, using telekinesis to catch missiles and throw them and other obstacles back at opponents. He is actually my favorite character to play as in this game! He takes some getting used to, since he's not fast and the game fails to offer a tutorial. Once you master the controls, his story becomes quite enjoyable.
Moving on, the ability to adjust the audio and other options would be nice, but most (if not all) other Sonic games lack this feature as well. You can unlock cut scenes and audio, but there are no alternate costumes or artwork to reward you with. There is a 2-player co-op mode that can be a lot of fun, but you can't choose the stage and it doesn't contribute to the actual stay. You can also play 2-player battle mode, which is a race to the goal. Also, in the main game, you're partner's AI is really stupid, so tails, blaze, whoever, can often be heard jumping repeatedly in an attempt to reach you on a rooftop or falling to their death as they try to follow you. Overall, the game feels rushed. I later learned that it is in fact underdeveloped, which leaves me a bit disappointed in SEGA. So many of the bugs could have been fixed if SEGA had taken the time to perfect this game.
This game is worth playing if you're a fan of Sonic. You'll need patience, but it can be fun. Although it's one of those games that you'll play once or twice before letting it collect a thick layer of dust
