Out Today: Sonic & The Black Knight

SEGA unleash Sonic in 3D yet again across Europe from today, but is it any good? Early reports suggest not...

Created by Sonic Team in Japan, this innovative game takes Sonic into a medieval world and arms him with a sword to aid in his effort to save the day. Sonic and the Black Knight will provide Sonic fans with an irresistible cast of characters and teach them all what it takes to be a true hero and the ultimate knight. With a series of missions taking place in stunning Arthurian-inspired locations, Sonic and the Black Knight promises to offer a fast-paced adventure that gamers of all ages will enjoy.

It seems whenever another Sonic game comes around we start with mixed feelings, we love the old Sonic games (even as Nintendo fans) but there simply is something missing from recent titles. We're yet to give this one a test drive so await our review, but some of the other industry "giants" haven't been very favourable so far, IGN:

This is a Sonic game that craps all over everything that has ever made the series interesting and then adds pointless waggle.

Hmm, we'll wait and see for ourselves but its not looking too promising, Sonic and the Black Knight is out now across the planet.
