Most Overrated Sonic Games

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Sonic Battle

Very overrated indeed that it deserves the top 1 spot. Many seem to know about this game, and Amy Rose has no reason to be in this 2D crap game.

There was no real reason for Amy Rose to have a sisterly relationship with Cream the Rabbit/arch-rivalry with Rouge the Bat. It could be executed tolerably. But guess what?! They made Amy Rose a dainty, bad-tempered, silly, overrated jerk and Rouge the Bat has the personality of Lola (from Shark Tale). This makes the Sonic Adventure duology look as underrated as Knuckles' Chaotix (Knuckles the Echidna and the Chaotix are both very overrated for being upbeat, useful and specially capable).

Who can argue? This game is 2-D & should be ripped off by Pac-Man Battle & Sonic Battle crossovers. Also, shouldn't there be a Sonic Battle 3D/3DS sequel?

Crap. I meant to say "Knuckles the Echidna and the Chaotix are both very underrated for being upbeat, useful and specially capable. Either way, this needs to be in the top 5s. Commentators on the Gligar13Vids video "BAD GAMES: Sonic Battle" act like this game is awesome very angrily. For me, Sonic Battle deserves a mixed reception.

22 Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric


23 Sonic Advance

The weakest of the 3 advance games in my opinion. There are 4 characters, but the levels are all the same and as a result the characters unique abilities feel underused. Plus after Ice Mountain the level design takes a nosedive with terrible pit and enemy placement, and TOO MANY SPIKES!

Isn't the only way to get the good ending getting all the 7 Chaos Emeralds only as Sonic the Hedgehog so he could turn into Super Sonic?

Amy Rose was a disgrace.

Sonic Advance: a game with terrible graphics (which is not worse than the 2-D animation & character voices), & inappropriately positive reception. Also, Sonic is not awesome! Pac-Man is much better. Let Pac-Man replace Sonic & let there be a Sonic & Pac-Man Archie Comics.

24 Sonic Heroes
25 Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

Modern Amy Rose fans (that pathetically overrate this girl due to her mean-spirited demeanor, how she gets riled up, her arch-rivalry with Rouge the Bat, her sisterly relations with Cream the Rabbit, fangirling over Sonic and dress skirt that sticks out like a tutu) would rage when they see the Modern Sonic games (take for instance, the one and only Sonic RPG and quite a disappointment) on the list. Say, did I, Kieran Glen Harris Stark put this here, by the way?

26 Sonic Shuffle
27 Sonic Lost World

I have even more complaints towards this game (especially the 3DS version) than AntDude does in his underrated review. Another one of Sonic Lost World's major flaws is the Modern Sonic hedgehogs (the only one in this game I hate is Modern Amy Rose whom I hate in general, but I am aware that Sonic's siblings in Sonic Underground). Another one is the one-dimensional Deadly Six, another flaw of characters.

28 Sonic X

Technically, Sonic X (as videos on the Game Boy Advance Video) are not video games, so I am only speaking for Sonic X for the Leapster. It's not only because of how the Sonic X characters are slightly different from the Sonic game characters, but it's because it's an educational Sonic game. I know that Sonic X is way better than most of the other educational Sonic games because it has the feel of a 2D platformer, but there is seriously no point in the existence in Sonic X games. The only major improvement that Sonic X for the Leapster needs is its gameplay being for general audiences.

29 Shadow the Hedgehog

Twihards (SCREW TWILIGHT! ) flamed someone (which is WatchMojo, a really overrated channel) for putting Shadow the Hedgehog on the worst Sonic games list rather than the best Sonic games list. Welp, we found sexism defenders... >8(

30 Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games

If only this series were a lot more gender-neutral.

31 Sonic World Adventure

Sonic Unleashed is already on the list. Did some racist that strongly prefers English voice acting over foreign voice acting put this here? >:(

32 Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games

Classic Sonic games are way better than Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series. One of the reasons because they are not as sexist. Second of all, they are less filler to the franchise. Third of all, gameplay that suits my style a lot more. Even though the presentations are mostly strong, it cannot really compare to the presentations of the Sonic games released in the 1990s. I can't believe I used to get thumbs down for having positive opinions on Classic Sonic games (yes, Sonic Labyrinth, the Sonic Drift duology, Sonic Jam for the and especially the educational Sonic games are the weakest SEGA games ever) instead of the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series. >8(

33 Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed

Really, dude? You don't like a game just because of Wreck-It-Ralph, whom I love with a passion?! He is so sexy, strong like Knuckles the Underrated Echidna!

The All-Star moves are lazy, unlike the first game. The tracks aren't as good, and they took out many good characters. (e.G. Billy Hatcher, Opa-Opa etc) and put in Danica Patrick. Seriously?

Don't get me wrong, this game is good, but not as good as the first game.

Wreck-It Ralph ruined the game for me. Seriously, why a Disney animated movie character for a guest star when there are ton of other ideas?

34 Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

This game is overrated because of Princess Peach & her unreasonable talent of Skill-based events, right? Of course this game is what most people had fun with, but it was supposed to come after Super Mario Galaxy, not before Super Mario Galaxy. Also, its graphics suck & the 2008 Olympics should be the Vancouver Olympics then. But why is Princess Peach in this game, huh?! This game sucks for a crossover, but the arch-rivalry between Bowser & Vector is hilarious. But seriously? The Wii version of this game is boring & too long & confusing! Also, the voices of Princess Peach & Sonic the Hedgehog suck major ass!

35 Sonic Advance 2
36 Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity
37 Sonic Free Riders
38 Sonic Rivals 2
39 Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I
40 Amy's American Page One

It's Modern Amy Rose and only has female characters. Need I say more? - The Ultimate Daredevil
