* DeaderThanDisco: Believe it or not, this game actually was fairly well received when first released, thanks to a combination of the fact that ''Creator/{{Bioware}}'' [[DancingBear was making an RPG Sonic game]] and integrating elements from ''WesternAnimation/{{Sonic SatAM}}'' and [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog the Archie comic]]. However, as time went on, the legitimate flaws the game had[[note]]the repetitive, mock rhythm game action commands needed to use a special, the really subpar soundtrack and lackluster cutscenes that look like they were animated in Adobe Flash[[/note]] and the shock of a Bioware produced Sonic game dying down, ontop of the game [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom being the catalyst that got the Archie Sonic comic canceled]] has soured a lot of opinions about the game.

* DancingBear: A lot of the hype the game got in development and upon release was purely because it was ''Creator/{{Bioware}}'', best know for ''Franchise/MassEffect'' and ''Franchise/DragonAge'' franchises, making an RPG Sonic game.

* CriticalResearchFailure: The in-game codex, with such little gems like stating that Sonic and Shadow "teamed up together to fight Eggman" in ''Videogame/SonicAdventure2''... [[DidNotDoTheResearch despite that never happening at all]] [[spoiler: as everyone in that game had to work together to stop the ARK from plummeting into Earth]].

* AwesomeMusic: Some do the [[AwesomeMusic/SonicTheHedgehog series record justice]].

to:

* AwesomeMusic: Some Generally inverted. As a huge portion of the soundtrack consists of extremely bad and lazily-implemented midis of old sonic songs, this game is widely agreed to have, by far, the worst soundtrack in the entire series. That said, some tracks manage to do the [[AwesomeMusic/SonicTheHedgehog series series' record justice]].

* DisappointingLastLevel: The first half of the game starts off somewhat decent enough, but then the rest of it gets rather tedious and downright excruciating. You're still learning everything, the game chucks a bunch of high defense or high-dodge enemies you can't kill by melee attacking at you, Robotnik only helps one team at once, etc.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: E-123 Omega wants to [[http://d-author.tumblr.com/post/153271826717/this-whole-dialogue-is-a-gift destroy]] [[https://hunnidpisanenchilada.tumblr.com/post/146826694186/aww-shadow-cares-about-omega Eggman]] but Tails states that Eggman is an ally and Omega only backed down on his closest friends, Shadow and Rouge's behalf. Then ''VideoGame/SonicForces'' has Shadow allying himself with Eggman to spread panic and disorder throughout the world.
--> '''E-123 Omega''': "ORANGE FOREST CREATURE GONE MAD. RECOMMEND IMMEDIATE DESTRUCTION."

Added DiffLines:

* EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame: General consensus is that the game has some of the best dialogue and story elements of a ''Sonic'' title in years due to Bioware's characterization.


Added DiffLines:

* MagnificentBastard: [[spoiler: Dr. Eggman got a serious upgrade from his usual self into this. He admits he didn't know if Sonic and the others would come back but ''hoped'' they would so he could show off.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: One of the reasons the game gets such praise for its writing is taking the worst aspects of some characters and making them much more palatable. Big's stupidity is made into ''funny'' stupidity rather than plain old dumbness. Also Amy Rose, who was dialed back from StalkerWithACrush to just a ClingyJealousGirl. Cream is also much less annoying, preferring to hang back and let the other characters do the heavy lifting.


Added DiffLines:

* SoOkayItsAverage: The game has a good story, great characterization, and creative gameplay mechanics, but is brought down by a lack of content, unbalanced mechanics, and an awful soundtrack. It's generally considered to be at least enjoyable, but nothing excellent.
