    Yeah. but make sure you update your IOSes -- 53, 55, 56 all need to be up to date.

    You can use NUS Downloader (google it) to find the latest IOS for your country's Wii.

    Go to the hacking section and you'll find tons of tutorials. [​IMG]

    Absolutely. This turned out to be a total flop.

    Damn. I hope the above two posters just have horrible taste in games, because I've been waiting on this for a very long time, and there's been a lot of hype around it. It would be a real shame if this really is a flop...

    It's an okay game but considering all that hype it is a flop.

    It's a good game on it's own right, but barely worthy of it's supposed predecessors.

    All the hype?

    Hardly think that most people saying it'll be a let down is hype, if anything its getting better reviews and word of mouth than I expected.

    I think the game was great. I think it was definitely different but still very fun.

    I think the thing I only really disliked were the bosses, since they were pretty much rehashes of old ones but the level in itself were all great and original and I also think that with every level the game got better. But I think that was also the case with older. Later levels were always more interesting, even though I still love Green Hill [​IMG]

    hate to disappoint you but it's all true it's not even a new game it's just rehashed levels from sonic 1 and 3 even the bosses are the same. throw in an absolutely horrific physics system and mix well and you get the worst sonic game ever made IMO.

    I'm not going to say it was a bad game, just the physics are kind of annoying. Maybe you'll have a better experience if you have never played a retro sonic game before.

    It's not really that bad in my opinion but its a little short. Everything in the game was basically taken from sonic 1-3 with very,very few original elements. For the first episode it's okay but I hope they do improve it and add on in the next episodes.

    Also having played both the Iphone and Wii versions I have to say sonic is very sluggish on the Wii...

    How are the levels in itself rehashes of older games? The Bosses are (no doubt!) and also maybe the look and some mechanics are similar but the levels are completely new! I think you should actually go back to S1-3&K, since your memories of the levels seem to be kind of shallow...

    And to say this game, which is pretty well reviewed for a Sonic-game among critics, is the worst Sonic-Game ever is imo just ignorant and an incitement to people not to like it! [​IMG]

    peh wake up the reviewers are being paid to say what you want to hear and anyway who the fuck even listens to reviews i never hardly read 1 review play the game and decide yourself and stop letting peeps think for you.

    and the levels are THE same they have different designs but their the same EXACTLY

    biggest fuck up sega have made yet and i thought nothing would top black knight they proved me wrong! colors is their last chance to redeem themselves

    --- end of line ---

    Since you seem to be serious about the bullshit you are writing I think I`m gonna end the discussion about the quality of the title here before it even begins...

    Other people should decide for themself, if this title didn`t match the consumers need. As far as I can see it mainly does...

    Until the next last chance everyone gives them for seemingly no reason. Why do so few people get that they just can't make good Sonic games any more? They used up their last chance like 4 games ago.

    Hey guys, I just beat that game, but I want to go back and collect all Chaos Emeralds. Any idea how to go about that? Particularly, how to trigger the special stages? I can't figure out the mechanic behind making the big ring at the end of the regular stages appear.
