Most Underrated Sonic Games

In The Sonic The Hedgehog Series (By Sega): There Are The Games That Are Fan Favorite Such as Sonic Adventure 2. However, There Are 5 Games on The Series Have Too Much Hate Showing The Unappreciation They Already Have.

So Let's Get The Love of Those Games and The Rules Are The Same as The Overrated List.

The Top Ten

1 Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

I Heard The Sonic Adventure 2 Fanbrats Are Screaming At The Top Of There Lungs at Their Lungs Right Now.
Yeah That's Right, The Most HATED Game in The Sonic Franchise Also in My Opinion The Underrated Game of The Franchise. Everywhere on The Internet: The Bad Memes About Sonic 2006 is Starting to Get Really REALLY Annoying Nowdays and it Makes This is Underrated as The Sonic Storybook Series. If You Are a Sonic Fanboy Who Really Hates This Game Need Some Huge Help. Anyways The Game is Great Because Of The Gameplay. I Know it Was Hard to Control Due to The Glitches and Bugs But I Have Fun With The Game To Care. Also They Complain That Soundtrack is too Generic Compared to Previous Games. I Think That it is FANTASTIC, You Don't Want to Listen to Boring Music That's Way People Prefer Sonic Music Over Mario Music Because Sonic Music Has Much More Variety Unlike Mario Music Which They Have Wacky Instrumentals With Too Child Like Themes (No Offensive Koji Kondo) Also They Complain About ...more

Shame what happened to this game. It was supposed to be released in the fall of 2007 but Microsoft rushed Sonic Team to release it one year earlier as to be Sonic's 15th anniversary game. Resulting in all the issues we have now. I remember playing the demo at a Gamestop with some other kid at the store and we both thought it was bloody amazing. I have a feeling we were playing some demo from the 07 version that we should have gotten. But overall the game isn't as bad as it is portrayed to be; no it isn't trash that belongs in the landfill, no the members of Sonic Team don't need to hang themselves, no it didn't kill the Sonic Franchise. Despite this the game is bad, although I suppose it has an excuse.

Well I LOVE this game Best of ALL time if they do remake this I would really love it if it had Elise still in but better storyline and it would be good if gold the hedgehog was in the remake of this

There's a reason nobody likes Sonic 0'666. Even though the graphics are understandable for it's time, I wish I never picked up this game. I know this game was rushed and created one of the most infamous glitches, but seriously, Sega. Your franchise is starting to die faster... don't speed it up, please.

(And to the Sonic die-hards above me: all words are not capitalized, and nice grammar.)

2 Shadow the Hedgehog

Urgh. This game gets hated for the most stupid and nitpicky of reasons.

1. The game has guns. Why is that a problem? And don't say it's because it ruins the kid friendly feel of Sonic because Jak II did the same thing to it's kid friendly predecessor, and does that game suck because of it? No.

2. Shadow swears. Again referring back to Jak II and 3, that game had instances where characters said p*** and a**. So people are OK with that but not OK with Shadow saying damn, one of the most minor of swear words?

3. The last story is the only real one. Think about it logically. In order for a game's story to continue there has to be at least one ending that's real. If there was no last story and Shadow was a hero in the next game then it would still have the same complaints that all other endings were fake. That aside who gives a F***? The last level was fun, Devil Doom was epic as hell and you get rewarded with the Shadow Rifle for beating it. Gameplay should matter ...more

Nitpicky fans. Wow.

People hate this game for cussing, vehicles, and guns. Well, tons of raging 7 year olds play Call of Duty... so how is Shadow's game breaking the kid friendly feel of Sonic?...

The cussing is beyond fine. I mean, games like Jak and Daxter have cussing in it. Those games used far worse swear words then "damn" which is the only one Shadow uses. Also, the swearing can be funny at times. "Where's that DAMN fourth chaos emerald?! "

As for guns, at least there's no blood or gore when you shoot something. Also, you don't have to use them.

The vehicles are the same. You don't have to use them.

I wonder why people call it the "Dark age of Sonic". It should be called the Dark age of the Sonic fanbase.

While I know this game has many horrendous problems like the "dark" tone, broken story, and ruining my favorite character in the series. But for some reason I like it for some reason, it could be that this was the one I liked the most when I was younger. - ChaoslordG1

Sonic Adventure 2 was more mature than Sonic Adventure 1. This game was just the natural progression of that.

3 Sonic Lost World

My vote goes to Sonic Lost World. This is one of my favorite Sonic Games and it deserves so much more than it gets. I think that this game really had an interesting idea and had some great mechanics at work. "BUT IT IS TOO SLOW! " This...isn't completely true but that's beside the point. What genre is Sonic supposed to be? A PLATFORMER. Speed is just the reward you get if players platform correctly. "BUT THE PARKOUR SUCKS! " And the reason why is...? Yes, the parkour definitely needs some improvements, but the parkour makes the levels dynamic and I want to see it again. "BUT THERE ARE ATTACK ISSUES". I've never had issues with the attacks at all. "BUT YOU COULDN'T GET A LIFE FROM COLLECTING RINGS IN THE INITIAL RELEASE! " WHAT? 1. They fixed that, 2. Was that what made the Sonic Games so great? "BUT THE BOSSES ARE PATHETIC! " Yes...that's the only argument I agree with. And, NO it is NOT copying Mario Galaxy. He's not in space. And the main reason it doesn't copy Galaxy is because the ...more - DCfnaf

When I first played and beat Sonic Lost World I only thought the game was so so. I struggled learning the games controls and new mechanics introduced. There were some levels I absolutely despised. While I didn't think it was a "bad" game, when at first comparing it to some of the previous entries I thought it lacked in some areas like level design. However, after a while playing through it with a more open mind and taking time to learn its mechanics better I soon began to greatly enjoy Lost World. Being able to pull off some stunts with the parkour and getting a really good time on a level were very satisfying. Levels that I didn't care for whether by their gimmick or dieing a lot got better after learning the controls. When I took time to explore the levels, what I though lacked wasn't as bad as I thought. Sonic Lost World when taking it as it is, it's a good solid game. A lot of the complaints I use to have, and I see look more like nitpicks that anything, like Sonic being slow in ...more

I downloaded this game for free with the Mario kart 8 offer, I didn't like it at first, but when I got to world 3 it became really good, also people say that sonic is slow because he uses the spinball instead of speed boost, that is pretty stupid. The only thing I hate about this game is the stupid 6. One resembles Justin Bieber, - Harri666

It's Just Okay
Not Perfect
Not Awful

4 Sonic Unleashed

This game is ok, but I stopped playing it because I got stuck on the city night level - Harri666

The first and best sonic game I've ever played, I'm sorry, but adventure sucks. Unleashed RULES!

The game that made me a sonic fan, and my 5th favorite game of all time

Sonic Unleashed was the game that transitioned from the garbage Sonic Games to the good ones. It was the game in between that shift and I think it was pretty decent. - DCfnaf

5 Sonic and the Black Knight

Worst reasons to hate a sonic game ever!

This game was awesome it made you feel like you were a super fast knight and I understand how the story line was a little lame but who didn't like fighting shadow on the hardest level?

Man I hate this list. Sonic & the Black Knight is overrated with an overall mixed reception (meaning that it got half praise & half criticism).

Secret Rings is worse, everyone

6 Knuckles' Chaotix

This needs top be top 1! This is the best Sonic game ever!

I wish this game was in Sonic Gems Collection.

7 Sonic Heroes

Stupidest reasons to hate a sonic game ever.

Best sonic game, but people whine about it constantly. Look at the stages, they are the coolest looking stages and so iconic.

It takes FOREVER to complete some stages, and kill some enemies. But it doesn't mean it's that bad. 4/10. - mattstat716

8 Sonic Chaos

This game does not get enough attention. Nor does Sonic Triple Trouble.

I added this comment because this duology is overhated for being other Classic Era Sonic gems.

9 Sonic R

Am I the only person who likes this game?

Good game. Now shut up.

Nice game! People who complain about controls should stop playing Tails.

God, the controls are awful. - mattstat716

10 Sonic CD

This is way too low on the list. It has the best soundtrack, a creative time travel gimmick, awesome stages, and it's metal sonic's first game.

The Contenders

11 Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

It is a Sonic RPG. That's something that has never been done before and sadly never be done since either, probably because of how poorly this game's sales went. I'm a big fan of the RPG genre so when a series like sonic decided to try one out I was intrigued. I also like the story and the new characters in it. I think the Nocturnus Clan is awesome: especially Shade and Ix, and I also like the various alien races quite a lot. The music... while I can see why people don't like it I don't personally have a problem with it. It's overly simplistic for the most part, and that's better than actually being bad. TWO THEMES, HOWEVER, ARE AMAZING. THE FINAL BOSS AND REGULAR BOSS THEME The last thing that makes this game good for me is the dialog system. While most of the things you say don't really have an effect on the game, I think it's a nice touch. Lastly, I do admit the game has its flaws, with the numerous glitches and exploits I have found with the game and the high expectations ...more

This game is overrated, you mean. Why are Modern Sonic games higher than Classic Sonic games on this list?

It's a good game, I don't know why anyone would say its overrated though, I Barely heard of it until I went to Gamestop searching for a new game.

The battle system is fun and... das it, what are RPGs? Taking your time, what are sonic games about? Going fast. And the music, oh god the music, it's a complete ear sore

12 Sonic Adventure 2: Battle

Sonic Adventure 2 is a great game with its various levels, multiple characters to play as, and its other features. However, this game definitely is not underrated.

This game is overrated. Not underrated.

Who would put this in this list?! - Koro

This is overrated. - DCfnaf

13 Sonic 3D Blast

I love this game.

Everyone hates this game mainly because "IT'S SLOW! "

Seriously? The other reasons is because of the camera angle, the "repetitive" objective, bad controls, and level design.

The camera angle is creative in my perspective. I think it's cool for a 3D game.

Every game is repetitive. Yes, Sonic, Zelda, Mario, Halo, Call of Duty... IT'S ALL REPETITIVE. Deal with it!

The controls are fine in my opinion. Just hold the top and right d-pad to control Sonic. It's simple! Just need to get used to it and they'll seem amazing!

Level Design is perfect for the game. You can't mess up that easily. It's that simple.

The game is underrated. I love this game, but it's probably the work of the whiny emo teens we call "Sonic Fans" who always complain about every game.

This game is hated for it's bad control. If you are talking about the Genesis version, I understand, but the Saturn version, you can buy an Analog Stick controller, which makes the game MUCH MUCH easier to control.

A great game to bridge the gap between the genesis games to adventure

If you want to play the Genesis version with a joystick or something then buy a SEGA arcade stick.

16 Sonic Battle

This game is overrated, you mean. Mixed to positive reviews, 2D character sprites, horrendous music, etc... This game sucks!

Pop Quiz: What is The Best Sonic Fighting Game For The Game Boy Advance? It's Sonic Battle. This Game Never Dissapoint With a Great Fighting System, Good/Reused Sprites, A Awesome Soundtrack and One of The Most Epic Plot in The Entire Sonic Series so Far. I Find This Underrated Because Most of The Fans Never Heard of It or Never Seen it Before. I thing is a Great Fighting Game For Sonic and a Great Fighting Game in General That Even Beats Sonic The Fighters. The Only Problem is That The Characters Voices is Reused Too Much and Its Get Annoying at Times But Still a Great Game.(For The GBA)

I only played this once, but its good. Thde animation is its main flaw. Its sega equalevent to smash minus the smash ball. Better than 4 because this actually have useful characters and a vgood roster.
