''[[RecycledTitle Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' was an attempt by Creator/{{Sega}} to remedy the PolygonCeiling that the ''Sonic'' series had chronically struggled with, such as [[CameraScrew camera issues]] and occasionally wonky controls and physics. Alas, by rushing the game which had [[TroubledProduction no shortage of development issues to begin with]] (see [[Trivia/SonicTheHedgehog2006 the Trivia page]] for details) out [[ChristmasRushed for a Christmas release]] on two advanced, brand-new consoles, what consumers got instead was a ''very'' ObviousBeta that not only failed to address these problems, but in many cases made them worse than ever. The controls were slipperier than ever, the camera was even more offensive, the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading loading times]] were some of the worst to ever hit a console game, and hundreds of [[GameBreakingBug glitches]] that should have been axed during playtesting were left intact in the finished game and this is all to say nothing of the notoriously convoluted IdiotPlot.

* ACupAngst: Blaze, according to the source material. Touched upon in an episode of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iX_kJhd_8QE DidYouKnowGaming]]. According to the bio in the game's script, "...she is bothered by her underendowed chest (comments on which will rouse her anger)."

* AmbiguousSituation: [[spoiler:Blaze at the end of Silver's story becomes victim to one - while the dialogue implies she is sealed into another dimension, she is absent from the final story entirely (despite Eggman's claim that Solaris is capable of affecting dimensions too), meaning she may have died in some way or another, [[TakingYouWithMe taking Iblis with her]].]]

* TheArtifact: Despite being the title character, ''Sonic himself'' is largely unimportant for much of the game, as while he's busy playing cat-and-mouse with Elise and Eggman, co-stars Shadow and Silver are the ones who confront the real mastermind, learn what he intends to do how he came to be and so on. [[spoiler:He only stops being this after he dies, by which point his death is used as a catalyst to revive him in time for the final boss.]]

* TheBadGuyWins: Although previous Sonic games starting with Sonic Adventure have the last story being a final boss fight with the main villain due to implied success in the villain's goals, Mephiles takes the cake as he [[spoiler:murdered Sonic to make Elise cry, and then merges with the newly released Iblis alongside the Chaos Emeralds. Mephiles, as Solaris, manages to destroy the entire planet and severely damage the entire timestream shortly after merging with Iblis, with the timestream also dying shortly thereafter. It was only after Sonic was revived and Sonic, alongside Shadow and Silver in super forms, that Mephiles was stopped, and even then it was a BittersweetEnding as they had to also reset the timeline so that Solaris, and by extension Mephiles and Iblis, never existed, and thus Elise and Sonic never met]].

Added DiffLines:

* EasterEgg: During Silver's story, once the player completes the town mission "Protect the Barrels in the Warehouse District!", a [[FurryConfusion non-anthromorphic]] pigeon named [[http://sonic.wikia.com/wiki/Hatsun Hatsun]] will appear in the warehouse district, and can be talked to until the player progresses with anything else, at which point he will disappear for good. He plays no role in the story whatsoever and doesn't appear anywhere else in the game.

Added DiffLines:

*** Chaos Drives and Light Cores are actually still in this game. The former are dropped by robotic enemies, and the latter are dropped by Iblis and Mephiles' monsters. They refill the player's power meter, which was a concept revived for ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''.

** Eggman pulling a gambit against Sonic in exchange for a Chaos Emerald much like in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''.



* FriendshipMoment: Shadow and Rouge have this exchange after Shadow learns that Omega would eventually be forced to imprison him in the future, due to Iblis being released.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: With a game as infamous as this, it's hard not to think of ''{{VideoGame/Superman 64}}'' when the first sidequest (and first action-oriented gameplay) the player takes involves [[PassThroughTheRings going through rings]].
** With its snowy climate, guard towers, searchlights, and large and imposing gates, White Acropolis sure does remind one of [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Shadow Moses Island]].
** Soleanna City sure does look a lot like [[VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine Delfino Palaza]].

** There are far too many other glitches to count, but let's just say that it's more or less impossible to play through the game without finding a ton of them.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler:The ending doesn't elaborate on what Silver's future that isn't ruined by Iblis turned out to be, or if the characters whom resides in the future [[InSpiteOfANail continue to exists in the future unchanged.]]]]

'''''Sonic The Hedgehog''''' ([[FanNickname referred to as]] "Sonic 2006" or simply "Sonic '06") was a game released near the end of 2006 for the UsefulNotes/XBox360 and the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3. Made to commemorate the 15th anniversary of [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog the titular franchise]], expectations for the game were quite high; unfortunately, the finished product not only failed to live up to them, but quickly became infamous for being spectacularly buggy and lacking in quite a few departments.
