Sonic arrives on the Nintendo DS! This game has quickly been hailed as the best Sonic game since the days of the Mega Drive era - and rightly so it seems.
It is easily the fastest Sonic game there is!
You can play as either Sonic or Blaze each of who's story is different though they play the same levels.
The gameplay is classic 2D and takes place across the 2 screens of the DS and the action is intense.
Boss fights are done in some funky 3D arenas. New to the mix is the tension meter which allows for bursts of speed.
It starts at 100% and goes to 300% with the destruction of enemies and performing tricks.
Sol Emeralds are in the balance. Sonic collects them via a special stage and Blaze collects them when defeating bosses.
The game consists of 7 colourful zones and a Sonic2-esque special stage played with the DS-stylus.
Graphically the game is stunning. All graphics are polygon rendered rather than sprite and flows perfectly.
The games music is quite interesting. It is in the style of Jet Set Radio but cranked up making for
some funky bets which seems to fit really well with the onscreen action.
Sonic Rush is a game we have been waiting for. Perhaps this is now a sign of things to come.
