* MisBlamed: Several Sonic 2006 defenders insist that [[LetsPlay/SonicTheHedgehog2006 pokecapn's Let's Play]] is partly to blame for the expansion of this game's bad reputation. First and foremost, Website/SomethingAwful's forum rules on Let's Plays dictated at the time that anybody who wanted to LP a game had to wait six months after its release. The reality is that the game had been out for well over a year before LetsPlay/{{pokecapn}} played it, and in that time it had sold over a million copies and earned a highly negative critical and fan reception on its own. In fact, it was the game's negative reception that motivated pokecapn to play it in the first place, the opening post of the LP explaining that pokecapn started the LP because he had heard the exact same complaints about every ''other'' 3D ''Sonic'' game before and figured [[CryingWolf it probably wasn't that bad this time, either]].
** Also FanMyopia: even if the total views of multiple video hosting sites are combined, it can be assumed that fewer than 100,000 people have seen this Let's Play, and the game had sold well over a million units before the Let's Play even began.

** Is Mephiles the series' shining KnightOfCerebus and an entertaining [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] villain, or a flat GenericDoomsdayVillain whose plot made no sense?

* DisappointingLastLevel: End of the World, this game's version of [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 Cannon's Core]]. It may be among the most loathed parts of the game, with the [[OneHitKill instant death]] [[DemonicSpiders black holes]], [[MarathonLevel ridiculous length]], and more [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading loading screens]] than ever (since you switch between levels and characters at each section).

** Mephiles as well. While he stands as probably the only consistently well-acted and well-written character in the whole game (other than perhaps [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap Shadow]], though YMMV on his acting), his motives for his goal are incredibly vague aside from an off-hand comment from Shadow, who believes that he craves destruction. Also, FridgeBrilliance suggests that he does have a reason for screwing around with the protagonists [[ComplexityAddiction the way he does]], but again, it's left completely unexplained.

** Mephiles as well. While he stands as probably the only consistently well-acted Mephiles. He has a cool design, is a scarily competent MagnificentBastard, gets some great lines, and well-written has delivery of those lines in a way that's both bombastic and intimidating courtesy of Creator/DanGreen. Unfortunately, his character in the whole game (other than perhaps [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap Shadow]], though YMMV on his acting), his is barely explored. His motives for his goal are incredibly vague aside from an a ''very'' off-hand comment from Shadow, who believes and Mephiles himself doesn't get a MotiveRant or any dialogue that reveals exactly ''why'' he craves destruction.wants to destroy all of reality. And even though his backstory of being [[spoiler:experimented on and abused by scientists]] is revealed, no real connection is ever made between that and his current goals. Also, FridgeBrilliance suggests that he does have a reason for screwing around with the protagonists [[ComplexityAddiction the way he does]], but again, it's left completely unexplained.

* [[VilevillainSaccharineshow Mephiles]] is one of the few things about this game that even detractors consider good.

** The realism of the setting and the human characters certainly [[UncannyValley clashes]] with the cartoony designs of the ''Sonic'' characters, doesn't it? The style dissonance is a common criticism of the game, so certainly [[VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey no other franchise after that would be cavalier enough to attempt such a thing again...]]

** In 2008, there was an "[[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd AVGN]] Reviews Sonic Next-Gen" [=YouTube=] Poop (although it has probably since been deleted before [=YouTube's=] transition change). Then, in December 2013, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WI0WX9me-3w Mike Matei gives James a chance to play the game for himself]], and he ends up finding it every bit as sad as Mike and the other fans felt. Mike even points out the bad voice acting (and in the poop, the "Jason alarm" clip from the Friday the 13th review was used when Sonic would say certain lines in gameplay). Five years later, there was an AVGN episode where the nerd actually reviews the game.
