''[[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.

Mad scientist [[BigBad Dr. Eggman]] has a new plan to TakeOverTheWorld: to capture Princess Elise, the [[PrincessesRule ruler]] of the country of Soleanna and the girl to the "[[SealedEvilInACan Flames of Disaster]]", and combine her power with the seven [[MineralMacGuffin Chaos Emeralds]] so he can rule over all time and space. {{Chronic Hero|Syndrome}} Sonic the Hedgehog just happens to be passing by and decides to rescue Princess Elise from the clutches of Dr. Eggman before he can release the Flames of Disaster upon the world.

Meanwhile, a [[MindOverMatter telekinetic]] hedgehog from the future named [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Silver]] has [[TimeTravel travelled back in time]] with his best friend Blaze. His goal is to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong and prevent his BadFuture by destroying "The Iblis Trigger", which he believes to be Sonic The Hedgehog. While this is happening, local AntiHero Shadow The Hedgehog must contend with a mysterious {{evil|Counterpart}} {{Doppelganger}} calling itself "Mephiles The Dark", who seeks to activate "The Iblis Trigger" and plunge the future into despair.

* TheStoryThatNeverWas: [[spoiler: The final cutscene involves one last bit of time travel, in which where Sonic and Elise extinguish the flame of Solaris, thereby preventing the lab accident that set the entire plot in motion. As the rest of the game wasn't very good, Sonic fans didn't particularly mind that it ended by erasing itself from the series timeline.]]

* 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]].

* 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.

*** 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''.
