Parents have nothing to worry about. While players do attack enemies (none of which resemble anything in real life), there is no actual killing. Overall, the action comes across as playful and cartoonish. Even small children should be fine, provided they can figure out the controls.

Fans of Sonic the Hedgehog will certainly enjoy the parts of the game that showcase Sonic's speed, but they will likely be turned off by the unwieldy platforming (much more cumbersome than in previous Sonic titles) and the unnecessarily complex RPG-inspired ability system.

HDTV Owners will appreciate that the game runs in 16:9 widescreen and 480p.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should have no difficulty playing the game. There are no essential audio cues, and the dialogue can be subtitled.
