This Game Is Awesome
I honestly love this Game it’s a great way to kill time in school, Road trips, at home, when it’s real late outside pretty much all around fun the game has a Decent amount of characters from the Sonic Franchise the quality in the game is beautiful and the point system is fairly done. I’d like to point that Shadow tends to glitch up til where he’s he’s bending his Knees and running like he has shoes no long ok Skates and with Rogue when racing with her she glitches up til her whole body in facing down like she’s on an speed boost but little minor things that should be fixed it would be nice to see some more Common Rare and Super rare characters as well I do enjoy the special characters but once there event is on you can’t get anymore pieces for them I’d love to see CLASSIC TAILS join the game sooner or later you with him running like the old tails where his feet didn’t touch the ground he hovered over the ground while his tails propelled him he should have a speed of (7-9) acceleration of (8-10) and a strength of (1-2) since he’s a real little person it’s only natural he’d be weaker his items should be (Whirlwind or fireball) his speed boost should be Wind boost or whatever you guys decide and his trap should be (Tornado or ice mine) I hope you guys see this and continue making sonic forces the perfect game it is I love blasting my own music with my own chosen name racing against those other 3 people this game is truly unrivaled 💙🦔
A Very Nice Sonic (the Hedgehog) game! :)!
How the game works is very (really) well, but not without room for improvement. Five things that I would suggest giving this (video) game is one, giving the option to have multiple costumes (outfits) for all of the characters, and two the option to turn off visual effects such as (for example) the grinding sparks visual effects. The third one would be the option to view the races from different (camera) angles, and even be able to angle the camera(s) in any direction the player would want to. The fourth option would be to give players the option to choose the stages themselves. While some would prefer the completely random stage selection approach, it’s still something to think about. Another thing is that there seems to be (like) only one song in the game. While it is nice and all, I believe that this game would benefit with a much wider selection of songs from all of the other (including the recently released “Sonic Forces) Sonic (the Hedgehog) games. They would only act as extras incase (in case) anyone is interested. And of course there is always room for more characters such as Cream the Rabbit and Blaze the Cat, as well as maybe some other Sega-related characters. Those are just a few suggestions that I have here, but it doesn’t hurt to leave a little suggestion here and there! :)!
NOOO! WHAT HAPPENED??
So the latest update sounds awesome. New characters? Bro, I’m ALLLLLLL in! I love the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, and this game is my favorite game of all time! It has my top 2 favorite characters in it: Shadow and Silver, and my third favorite character is Infinite, and this game is based off of the game he came from. But this new update....it may just be me but......I THINK IT’S GLITCHING!!! It keeps kicking me out, and I have to wait until that last round is over while the other people are having fun without me(if they’re not kicked out), and this never used to happen! I mean, I’ve only played for 5 minutes when this happed, Maybe a bit more, but it’s happening BAD. And my screen glitched out too. I don’t this it’s this iPad’s fault there. But with some other stuff, here’s my thoughts on some of the special characters: Fun that the Sonic movie characters are there(Teen Sonic, Baby Sonic, Longclaw); I think Vampire Shadow looks so fun in a top hat hee hee; Like the thought that Sonic and Amy are playing baseball; Why are there 2 Rouge costumes?; Also whys Big the Cat even in the roster? The trophy count thing is super weird too, and why to you press play, go to character select then have to press play again? Over all FANTASTIC game, but if this update is a glitch please can you fix it? —BloodyLeopardWarrior
Tell me what you really see...
So I’ve been playing this for a while now (I played on a few other accounts) and this has come to my attention as of recently. I’ve noticed some popular big time sonic Villans appear in the game such as Metal Sonic, Chaos, and bosses from Lost World, all of which you faced in the other franchises great games. I never looked to see if anyone else has asked this question but I feel like some background info should be heard or something. My Question: Where is Infinite? Since he was one of the only two Primary Antagonists of the original game (Sonic Forces for those who haven’t played), and as you can run as Eggman in the game (which astonished me as he rarely is ever a playable character), I feel like Infinite was left out on accident as it was his debut in the Sonic franchise and the game kind of loses its meaning by not having the god of illusion as a playable character as there are characters (like Silver and Espio) who have illusion abilities, and why they have it instead of Infinite as the primary carrier intrigued me if whether SEGA left him out intentionally or if they were waiting for a specific point in time to finally involve him. I’d like to see what kind of character Infinite would be in this game if he became one of the playable runners.
It’s a favorite Sonic game to me.
In my professional opinion, this is one of the best Sonic games ever. I especially like how Shadow does the hover to the point where he has no shoes ok I mean Skates and also want to see Dr Eggman join the game soon. I also want Classic Tails to join so I don’t have to Run as my favorite character. I need classic tails so I can hover 6.2 feet. Practically flying! E-123 Omega the Robot is one of my favorites among all the characters because he’s huge and is not part of any other Sonic game ever. I would also enjoy seeing Infinite the jackal joining the game soon. Well we will see if you can carry over some MARIO characters to put them all in Sonic disguises! ! ! And, I don’t know, maybe add more characters from OTHER games, like PacMan, Sonic EXE, and Idk movie Robotnik . Welp I don’t really have much left to say except for this is how I feel about this great game. 😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎oh and I forgot to mention how you listen to people’s messages and complaints, SEGA. Just, reply to me, because I want those characters so badly. People, this is a fun way to kill time. I like to Murder time and kill time with this.
It’s pretty good!
This is a really fun game! The servers are great, and I have rarely encountered any issues with the online. What happens in the races never feels like luck, and the controls are very responsive. Events are really long, so you have a lot of opportunities to get the characters you want. They are also run multiple times. Currently, the event to unlock Teen Sonic (aka Movie Sonic) has been ran 3 times! Although sometimes the characters have no real reason to play as them. Everyone has an attack that shoots forward, one that speeds them up, and one that spawns in front of your enemies. So, there is no reason to pick, say, Charmy over Vector. You just use your favorite Sonic character or your strongest character. Another thing I really enjoy are the ads. Or, lack there of. You will never have to watch an ad. You can watch them to speed things up, but you will never have to see one. And the red rings are very plentiful, too. You get 6 at least once a day from a chest, So you always get some. So overall, this is a great app, and is very fun and time killing during these trying times. I personally like it even more than SonicDash. If you don’t know about the game, play it. You will have a great time!
As a die-hard fan of the Sonic series, I must commend the game company Sega for doing an absolutely amazing job on this game. I am of course, not blind of the series’ successes and failures. In fact, I am not a nostalgist (My first Sonic game was actually Sonic Colors, back in ‘08). In fact, I’m a very proud fan. So. Recommendations. Personally, can the fans get a unique campaign mode different to the one from the Switch? Maybe the fans could get a little more character variety as well, like Tikal, Emerl, Chip, The Werehog, and who knows? Maybe even Infinite? One last thing, there could be more locations and there needs to be a variety of music. If I may suggest it, the company could introduce music that dear fans and nostalgists will remember from iconic Sonic games such as Sonic Colors, Sonic Unleashed, Sonic Generations, Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, and many other Sonic games (of which I wholly and completely acknowledge is owned by the wonderful game company Sega). Again, thanks for everything that you all do, and let’s do our best to crush the competition with Nintendo this upcoming year of 2019 with even more stunning detail, storyline, animation, gameplay, voice acting, and music. Remember, “Sega does what Nintendon’t!” Gotta Go Fast, Sonicfan333
Sonic speed battle fav and issues
This sonic game has a General and simple idea and turns it into something great, the characters are really great last from the past and each have a unique ability or two, and I love how addicting the game is and I have only 1 issue...lag. Like any other game lag isn’t uncommon and I know at some parts lag just can’t be dodged, but it’s the attack lag that bothers me. When firing a shot the game makes it seem as if you hit them but in reality you don’t and at some points is ridiculously dumb. I like the concept of you can only use a single attack but this can extremely backfire when it comes to lag. For instance you hit someone with shadow’s lightning attack. Or is seems as if you did. Due to this the cloud should be safe to past due to lightning doesn’t strike twice (pun 100% intended) but no, since the lag makes it seem as if you hit them you get hit with your own attack, I know this can’t be 100% dodged due to some people having better/worse internet then others but try to make it so the lines line up (another pun that’s still 100% intended). please and thank you.
Great, but has one problem...
This is an amazing game. I wanted to rate it 5 stars because it works. SEGA listens to the complaints of fans. They have regular updates and add (some questionable because of the game it’s based off of) new characters at a decent rate. So what’s keeping me from changing to 5 stars? This game doesn’t keep my attention very long. I play many other games. This is one of my top 3, but I’ll only go in to unlock a free chest every now and then. Also, Red Rings costs too much. And my biggest problem: you can STILL collect characters who are at max level. NO. I want Rare and Super Rare characters. That’s not easy when you can max out ALL common characters and still collect their cards after battle races. They tried to draw people back by adding the Season element, which admittedly was a great idea, SEGA gives recognition to the top 9 players worldwide after the Season ends. But after a while, if you win a lot, or lose a lot, you lose interest. The only skill involved is the ability to swipe at the right time, whether that be stage obstacles, or items thrown by opponents. Boosts are fast, but are VERY hard to control. I have it at 4 stars because everything works great, mules better than the ACTUAL Sonic Forces, but it suffers one of the biggest reasons to why Sonic Forces is looked down upon. It doesn’t keep your attention for more than an hour or two. Recommended only to those dedicated to EVERYTHING, even if it gets boring over time.
This is a great game in my opinion. You can race all day, and get rewards for it. There is a battle chest limit though. I love the missions, but I find the cool-downs to be too long. the shortest is 3-4 hours?! really?! Also this game strongly pushes you to buy overpriced in-app purchases. $10 for just about everything. Even a small set of cards. For example, you can buy 50 Super rare cards...for $10. I’m starting to question how Sega makes money off of this game. The ads are frequent. After every few races youll get one. There are optional ads to increase rewards or get coins. As many other reviewers have stated, the trophy system makes zero sense. Its almost entirely random. how come the dude in second get -12 while the dude in third gets +8?! I think the biggest issue with this game is the battery it requires. This app has singlehandedly used as much battery as all my other apps combined. It also has some connection issues, but those are rare and waiting a few minutes fixes it most of the time. My last nit-pick at ghis game is the referral system. You can supposedly use a link to invite people to the game and you get a reward when they use it. Though it does send them a link to the game, it has no reference to you in the slightest as far as I can tell. I tested it on my cousin and he installed the game and I got no reward. This happened 3 times. Other than that, great game.
The game is great, easy to navigate pretty simple, design is wonderful, challenges proportioned out nicely, it’s not impossible to get rare characters without spending actual money! (Leveling them up however is a bit more tricky but still not impossible without money) I’ve played to the point of no more reward chests and character XP could be gained, banking rings and trophies while I wait for my chests to be opened. However I’ve rated 4 stars only because there is a lag (ugh that lag has cost me some first place prizes, or making me drop out of a race all together, so way past NOT cool) also there’s a slight problem with the music and sfx, just that when it can’t give an ad to play and it tells me to go ahead and take my reward it shuts them off, (and I enjoy the soundtrack and sfx!!) But I keep having to go to the settings and click them off and on again to get them back after ever ‘no ad take your reward’ notification. Also I notice you can invite friends onto the game, but is there a way to actually run a race with specific people? Why invite friends if you can’t play with them? Just beating their scores on a bored. It’s just and idea but, it would be good to go personally in a speed race with your friends you invite. Letting you know when they are on to play and a way of inviting them into an actual race. That’s it for my review! Like the game, fix the lag among all things 😝 thanks!!
This is definitely one of the more entertaining rail-runner games I've played, the controls are tight and it feels fluent enough. That said, there are some things you should know: 1. Lag can be an issue sometimes, especially when the game wants to completely wig out and your attacks will not connect. I've only had it a couple times, but it becomes extremely prevalent when you're running on cellular data, so if you want a smooth experience, play near a hotspot. 2. As with most mobile games, I'd advise against buying the RNG boxes, especially if you're looking for a character in the Rare to Super Rare category; the odds are poor due to the fact opportunities to level up specific characters are solely dependent on rolling and winning cards for them (Simply put: you'll likely roll common characters you've already acquired and you'll feel pretty ripped off.). This actually isn't too big of an issue, as you have plenty of challenges that will reward you with more rare stuff, and you'll eventually get a character you're aiming towards. For those that are SUPER desperate however, check the in-app store frequently to see the character of the day that you can instantly unlock by coughing up around 80 Red Stars (you'll have plenty of opportunities to get them, but they're $2.00 at most if you lack the funds).
Good Game Yet.. Could Be Amazing
Overall ENJOY playing this game. Sega has done exceptionally well with creating this app. The visuals are amazing and pleasing to see. The many different race tracks at random played so you never get bored of playing the same exact boards and clearing tiers etc was really neat. It’s not too hard to get rare characters. The attacks, shields, and speed boost are really pretty cool & unique to each character. So yeah good game, However it could be great. If only Sega would update/change it so that you could add other players/immediate or random friends with/from the game to a party and play against one another whenever as well. With a chat room for them?! It would blow people’s minds, as well as ending cards being the reason to upgrade. People would love it if initially gaining random cards for wins will remain being the reason to unlock characters yet once unlocked it ends. How they upgrade should be the consistency of how often that player uses the character in races. No one wants a hundred cards for characters they don’t play well with using and never uses and rarely get cards for the ones they do use all the time to upgrade. Other than that good game, oh and fix the lag. Some times it lags and cost me some races. Took my rank all the way down. No sirr..
Awesome, but few things I need to discuss.
Well we all know this is based off of sonic forces for the switch, and I think it’s better than the other mobile games like sonic dash. But I’m gonna tell the problem,#1, the speed boost. Normally, in the dash series of sonic (1 and 2) you can crash, jump over spaces, and just basically just do whatever you want in the game...(for 3 seconds). But in this game, yes, you go fast but LOSE the boost when you hit one object. #2 starting the race. Normally, it’s a fair start. In this game, the cpu goes a few steps ahead (P.S, they never really hit an obstacle or anything...) they possibly would switch right in front of you and snatch your power up. #3, the cost of red rings. We all possibly know what red star rings are, in mobile games sonic dash 1 and 2, there at a good price; Unfortunately, this game has A big price for sooooo little. And plus, when you buy things in the game /upgrade your character, it’s like nothing ever happened. So I suggest you should NOT spend money on your star rings. Ok, last problem, when you can’t buy a character max character. NOPE. CANT. I tried but you can’t. Also, sega listens to complaints, so it’ll possibly be fixed. But anyway, apart from that, Sega has done a tremendous job on this game.
