  • This Game Is Awesome Feb 5, 2019

    By its a beautiful game
    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 💙🦔

    While not bad, and can be fun, even if you need a quickie, my strongest criticism is the inability to play this game on Cellular Data. Even with newer versions, the game NEVER WORKS on LTE or even 5G, despite working well on my phone. Even after reporting this problem to the team, there has been no progress being made to fix this issue which is a disappointment. I really hope they can fully fix this issue so it doesn't have to be bothersome to play it only with a WI-FI connection.
  • A Very Nice Sonic (the Hedgehog) game! :)! Nov 16, 2017

    By SoulSnow {2}
    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! :)!

    It's a great game, it takes some time but you can get really good at it, and the new Boss/challenger update is SOOOOOO cool and infinite is my favorite sonic character so yea I still enjoy the game and have sense it came out, I recommend this game if you like sonic or like raceing games! Of course like all games there are some issues but it's a great game so yea I'd get it if I where you!! 🌚🌚🌚
  • Great game! Dec 18, 2020

    By PurpleDudd
    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.

    I love this game and I think it is amazing, but there are a couple problems I have with the game that make it 4 stars. The first one is the rate of rings is pretty slow and with some characters costing a lot of rings to upgrade sometimes it takes a bit too long for 1 level. Another one is for characters that are max level. I don't think I should be able to get sonic tokens when I already have him maxed out. Also I think the friend racing should be permanent instead of just a random event.
  • Great, but has one problem... Nov 14, 2018

    By Pokemon Trainer Naruto
    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.
  • Great Game!! Dec 29, 2017

    By Shadowspuppy
    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!!

    Been playing since the exaclibur sonic event, I enjoy this game i would recommend to all sonic fans, also there's no doubt Infinite is the new character which is hype because that means I found my 3rd main character 🤣 but one concern I have is I'm losing trophies in 1st and 2nd place, which is odd, idk if that's suppose to happen or if it's a bug.. but after a while it gets annoying. But still that isn't enough to lower my rating, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!
  • NOOO! WHAT HAPPENED?? Nov 25, 2020

    By WellsMama79
    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

    Have to drop my rating from 4 stars to 2. The player experience for this game has gotten worse with time -- many new characters are OP and unbalanced on release and don't get nerfed for 1-3 months, if at all. It feels so bad to play against and it feels like the devs don't care, just want people to spend. Monetization practices got worse, adding a purposely bad menu UI so that spending your in-game currency on accident (with NO confirmation!) is common. Aggravating and sad to see this happen.

    By Bret Budzynski
    The game itself is pretty fun, I just cannot stand how aggressively scummy the game will force ads and p2w on you, but that is sort of standard for phone games. The major issue is that I just cannot play it when not connected to wifi, which sort of defeats the point of it being a mobile game.

    This new event, hackers, and matchmaking suck a ****, most of the time I'm going against someone who has played a year, two years or more. I've only played for maybe 2 or 3 months, how the heck am I suppose to win this?!?! The hackers don't show up all the time but it definitely not like they don't. This boss npc has a thing for me because even if I'm first or last it specifically attacks me. Everybody else is getting a free pass to first place while I'm getting a press f to pay respect in back!

    By andy tate
    Fun game, cool characters (obviously)... until when you work so hard to earn trophies. even if you get third or fourth you lose like 1-30 trophies. SEGA needs to make it more fair. Also some of the ads freeze and it won't let you get to open your chest.
  • :0 Apr 6, 2020

    By loganschuylerdavis
    It’s an okay game, but being forced to accept 4th place trophies feels like I’m being taunted. I think that taking chests should be optional, because the most annoying thing about this game is getting bad placements then having that rubbed in by getting a chest that says 4th in big writing and one that you have to accept. I’d also like to see more than 4 people per race. I must also ask that you make it so that when you have to close the app, your progress in the previous round would be lost and so that you don’t have to wait to start a new round. O and also, I just noticed that the bots don’t really seem to be affected by each other’s power ups or sometimes mine, they also don’t seem to always get harmed by hitting obstacles, this is so fricking unfair! It makes me want to delete the whole game! I just realized that shadow’s cloud power is extremely overpowered! It is unavoidable and makes the game even less fun! I also see it as annoying and unfair how people can just spawn mines directly in front of you. Why the heck is that even halfway allowed. By the time it spawns, it’s too late, it becomes an unavoidable obstacle and boom, you’re in last place. That’s almost always the reason that I lose or get bad placements! Oops. Look at that. I got second place and got 5 points. The third placer got 7. I hate this game.
  • A few issues, mainly lag Nov 13, 2017

    By tanktank4321
    I've had some issues with this game, the first being the lag. Sometimes the lag is the type where your game has lower fps, which I'm used to, but most of the time, the lag is the type where the game runs smoothly but the opponents on your screen don't. For example, in many cases, my screen shows an opponent getting hit by my item, and then an obstacle, but they just turn and jump two seconds after getting hit. This makes characters without good speed boost items, such as Knuckles, practically impossible to play, since I get placed with people who are better than me, and they spam speed boosts and items that don't hit me on my screen, but yet slow me down. Another issue I've encountered is not being able to do the correct inputs when avoiding projectiles. When the hazard sign first appears, I instantly swipe up, but my character doesn't move, and in about half a second, which would normally be enough time to jump, I get hit. Lastly, when an alert is displayed, such as the low battery reminder, your character apparently stops in place. I've seen it happen at the beginning of a game, where when the rings were collected, the alert popped up. I closed it, and I found myself in the same spot I was at before the alert, at the starting rings, while the other characters got their power ups/items.
  • The distribution is awful Aug 17, 2018

    By Superman dolphin
    Sonic forces is ok. The gameplay is simple and fun, and I like the challenging stages it has to offer. However, I have three problems for this game. The first being that all boosts (except for invincibility) are too hard to control without hitting an obstacle. Since going at regular speeds makes it somewhat difficult to doge things like mines, enemies, or textures, imagine having to run WAY faster and still having to dodge those. It’s nearly impossible. My next complaint is that item distribution is neither distance nor place-based. (unless you’re in first) Which means you can be really far back in last and still get a shield, making catching up to everyone else that much harder. Also, when playing as knuckles, I and many others have been able to spam 5-6 invincibilities in a row without stopping. That can be annoying deal with. The last and biggest complaint I have is trophy distribution. This wasn’t a big deal until the introduction of Jet, where players could see how many trophies his/her competitors lost or gained. Ever since then, the amount of trophies you get is extremely frustrating, considering the fact you can get 8 or 9 trophies in first, the guy in 2nd loses trophies, and the guy in third gains 2 trophies. I can even gain trophies, but not as many as the people who finished after me.
  • Great game with problems Oct 14, 2021

    By AlShehhi3012
    Update Oct 2021 - after spending one month in Europe I released that the game was working fine 90% + of the time, no delayed game play and was able to reach higher level easily .. so the issue seems with servers running in UAE not the phone or my network . Also urgent bug now the game does not open and gets frozen at start screen where news come !!! Please fix urgently. ((( Old Review in UAE - still valid ))) After spending hours everyday and happily paying lots of dollars for this game, this has come to end .. mainly because of the weird ranking system and constant connection issues specially after reaching 5000 points level. Example: in many races I hit all rivals and rarely get hit, suddenly I’m in 2nd place or 4th place because of connection going on and off (I have best connection and play many online games) !!! It happens to some characters more than others .. This has happened 100s times. I’m a good player but never seem to reach 6000 level even with many max out characters . It’s no longer competitive and fair. Will still play once a month to see what’s new but no interest to spend my gold rings and 1000s of red star rings collected since it will not improve anything.
  • I have some problems Jan 21, 2021

    By Ken Vieira
    I liked this game but as I started to play it more I noticed a lot of issues during the game you can get power ups and almost every character has some power up that makes them go faster but the problem is the game moves to fast to control your character causing you to almost instantly cash canceling the affect. Many would think the creators make this to make it harder except when you are not using the affect you will find yourself crashing also I don’t like the lag before you can jump again this wouldn’t be a problem but some of the levels have obstacle to close together cause you to crash and the once you crash it’s almost impossible to get first place. I can’t tell you how many time I got last in the race because I hit a box the was unable to make a comeback Also for the game creator could you please fix excalibur sonic’s first ability because it seems to never be used I would think that making it into a range attack like he swings his sword and a energy blast comes out and slows down the person in front of him this I think would make him better to play
  • Genuinely Terrible Jul 28, 2020

    By pamason1129
    The game starts off too easy, then when you get a decent amount of score to your profile the matches become completely unreasonable. Losing points, especially during unbalanced races, is an unfair and stressful mess, and sometimes you lose points for getting SECOND PLACE. The cut off for penalties should just be 0 points. I don’t know why multiplayer games insist on screwing players over like this, especially when the matchmaking is so unfair to begin with. Some characters are more broken than others, the music gets just as repetitive as the original Sonic Forces, it takes WAY too long level up the character you actually want. It’s just full of too many missteps overall, so basically it’s a great mobile game. I had a lot more to say here, but because the mobile App Store is such an anomaly of interface design I lost several more paragraphs of critiques just from accidentally touching off of the window. If you wasted your money on any in-game purchases here I highly suggest getting a refund as soon as possible because I want everyone to send a message to the conniving developers of this game that this kind of game design is unacceptable.

    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! :)! Nov 16, 2017

    By SoulSnow {2}
    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! :)!

    It's a great game, it takes some time but you can get really good at it, and the new Boss/challenger update is SOOOOOO cool and infinite is my favorite sonic character so yea I still enjoy the game and have sense it came out, I recommend this game if you like sonic or like raceing games! Of course like all games there are some issues but it's a great game so yea I'd get it if I where you!! 🌚🌚🌚

    Been playing since the exaclibur sonic event, I enjoy this game i would recommend to all sonic fans, also there's no doubt Infinite is the new character which is hype because that means I found my 3rd main character 🤣 but one concern I have is I'm losing trophies in 1st and 2nd place, which is odd, idk if that's suppose to happen or if it's a bug.. but after a while it gets annoying. But still that isn't enough to lower my rating, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!
  • NOOO! WHAT HAPPENED?? Nov 25, 2020

    By WellsMama79
    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

    I tried to update my rating, but it only let's me delete it, instead. The AD's aren't playing correctly and I can benefit from the Ad's.which means the company can't benefit. I sure hope this update fixes this.. I gave it the full 5 stars, bcuz other than that its all good.. Except,when we lose a game, the amount of points taken from us is too much. It seems to cause us to be spinning our wheels playing non stop like I do, and can't get above 4,500 points and go any higher.. Why is that?? 😂
  • Tell me what you really see... May 24, 2021

    By SovietNova-X
    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. May 4, 2020

    By dohodhdhfhuffuififr
    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! Apr 16, 2020

    By Bd junior
    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!
  • Amazing! Dec 21, 2018

    By SonicFan365
    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
  • Great game! Dec 18, 2020

    By PurpleDudd
    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.

    I love this game and I think it is amazing, but there are a couple problems I have with the game that make it 4 stars. The first one is the rate of rings is pretty slow and with some characters costing a lot of rings to upgrade sometimes it takes a bit too long for 1 level. Another one is for characters that are max level. I don't think I should be able to get sonic tokens when I already have him maxed out. Also I think the friend racing should be permanent instead of just a random event.
  • Great, but has one problem... Nov 14, 2018

    By Pokemon Trainer Naruto
    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.
  • Great Game!! Dec 29, 2017

    By Shadowspuppy
    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!!
  • Take Note Sep 30, 2018

    By NatsunaEmblem
    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).
  • Awesome, but few things I need to discuss. Dec 22, 2018

    By quack25
    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.

    By Manic the hedgehog
    I love this game but I put 4 stars because when it comes for events like the unlocking super sonic. Don't get me wrong I do have him. But if there was a way for characters like super sonic to grind those xp points that helped out leveling them up then I will give you 5 stars. Until that ever happens is staying as 4 stars.
  • Good Game Yet.. Could Be Amazing Sep 6, 2018

    By Arizonans+Hoes
    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..
  • Sonic Forces: Speed Battle Review Jan 8, 2019

    By ChronicSonicFan (TaylorTyler)
    Sonic Forces: Speed Battle, in my opinion, is a great and fun game to play, as well as a good alternative for the Nintendo Switch version of Sonic Forces for those who don’t have it, me being the big Sonic fan I am. However, the reason why I give it four stars out of five is because I have to doc a point because it can get way too addicting for me. Plus, for characters who are liked and even fan favorites yet rare ones, it can get quite difficult to unlock them. On the other hand, though, I can understand why. Perhaps that’s just an incentive for Sonic fans, gamers, and etc to play the game more. And more, and more, and more, and—oh, you get the point! Hence why I say that it, to me, can get addicting. Also, I’d be lying if I didn’t say that the level designs didn’t get repetitive. All of that aside, it’s still a great game. Good graphics that are similar to its console counterpart, awesome rewards, interesting and Sonic-esque (albeit repetitive) level designs, and a wide range of things to do! If you’re the type of person that enjoys running and sliding from point A to point B while hitting enemies, using power-ups, competing online worldwide, going on missions, collecting things, and winning, then this is for you! :)
  • Good but some problem Apr 11, 2020

    By diseasedtoe&ok
    I love this game but sometimes it just wasn’t fun. Like for example, when sonic uses his ice barrier things the other players go right through them without even getting hit. It’s just like, HOW?!? Another thing is that sometimes even the characters shooting item goes right through the player and they don’t even get hit, it gets really frustrating because this might happens towards the end and if your in 3rd or 4th place, almost always it would give you a negative score which just makes me mad. Please fix this and I’m NOT saying to fix it when it spawns right in front of them just fix it when they’re a few meters away from it. Other than that, this game is great. One more thing, why are the red rings so expensive and pretty hard to get? Make it at least every time you get 1st place you would at LEAST get 2 red rings. Please, make these things a little cheaper and just a little easier to get. Also, what if you add super characters like super sonic and super shadow? You can make a button in the home page and you can race ONLY with supers because it would be more fair. The way to get it is by an event or making them a new character to get for about 70 cards Thank you

    By Jordy Hernandez
    While not bad, and can be fun, even if you need a quickie, my strongest criticism is the inability to play this game on Cellular Data. Even with newer versions, the game NEVER WORKS on LTE or even 5G, despite working well on my phone. Even after reporting this problem to the team, there has been no progress being made to fix this issue which is a disappointment. I really hope they can fully fix this issue so it doesn't have to be bothersome to play it only with a WI-FI connection.
  • Nov 15, 2021

    By darkninja2992
    Not a bad game, but definitely needs more polish before one should get really invested in it. The point system can feel excessively unforgiving and unfair at times especially when it seems like two bots will coordinate against you. The game could definitely benefit from an option to not have bots and just play a match with fewer players instead of filling empty slots with bots
  • Sure would like to see where I’m going... May 6, 2019

    By NoStars4You0000
    I love this game but every update is making it worse. Not only did you take away the boosts that took forever to build up to, now you go and mess up the camera angles so we can’t see. Glad I didn’t actually pay money to upgrade any characters to get their max boosts that are all now worthless. The camera actually goes beneath the track now or so low you can’t see anything in front of you. Not to mention the awful hedge maze trap that brings you to a complete second stop after you already take the first bit of damage even if you have invincibility or shield bubbles. Do you guys not test all these things out before you release these updates. Then there is the scoring. If you are ranked the highest at the start of the game you get punished for winning depending how low the other players are. 9 points for winning while everyone else gets more then you. The rankings have little to do with skill because if you play the game long enough you can rack up the points. The algorithm needs tweaking. There should be a standard winning amount for each place. Additional points if u are ranked lower and win. Same for the other tiers. It needs some kind of standardization because it screws you one way or another win or lose.

    They reaply need to fix this bug. 8 out of 10 times, the app keeps crashing, specifically before the battle starts. This is really annoying since I get penalized for this.
  • Nov 26, 2021

    By Darian Hendrickson
    The biggest problem with this game is your characters have a level cap and after you hit that cap you continue to recive cards for that character even tho you cant upgrade them anymore. Opening a chest and 90% of the cards from it are for a max level character so 90% of that chest was worthless. The devs should make it so you dont get cards for max level characters or allow you to sell excess cards for in game currency or trade/exchange them for other character cards in the shop
  • Good game with a huge flaw Jul 16, 2021

    By Orly1234567890436
    Sonic forces is what I like to call play to have fun. The game has fun gameplay and at times it can be addicting to play a match but then decide that you’ll keep going until you lose. The problem with this is game is how much it caters to those who spend money on the game. One of the main reasons I like this game is how much characters there are to collect and playing as my favorite characters is always a cool thing to do in a sonic game since you rarely every play as other characters than sonic in normal sonic games. So you can imagine how frustrating it is when you get a chest and only to find that you get the same characters over and over and over and over again. 9/10 times for me whenever I open a chest, it will always be a character that I already have. It’s really makes you less motivated to play the game when it happens over and over again to the point where you straight up delete the game. Of course the game needs to make its money so I’m not saying to just straight up make it completely f2p but please add in other mechanics where we can go after the characters that we want like a character selector chest or do choose a route where you complete missions to get a character of your choosing.
  • Please Please PLEASE - or Mario might be a better option Sep 4, 2020

    By SuperDave30
    I’ve played this game for a number of years now. In that time I’ve been able to notice a definitive pattern in how you reward play and the characters you provide cards for as rewards for victories. To date (without paying) I’ve unlocked 41 of 45 characters. Of those, my common characters continue to receive cards for victories even though the can no longer get upgrades. On average they have 25,000 wasted cards. Why is that?!? Stop providing USELESS cards to these characters for battle wins. Balance the game so that once a character is max out, cards go to characters that have upgrades available. It is SO obvious that this intentional disparity is a shameless attempt to drive revenue through forced purchases. AND the Tails’ Vault was another ploy to for purchases. We already watch adds and have numerous opportunities to cheat and buy upgrades. Please please PLEASE keep the game interesting buy allowing ALL characters to get cards, therefore having the ability to upgrade. There’s ZERO reason why I should have 25k cards on AVERAGE for common characters and have less than 100 TOTAL for so many of the other characters. Balance this or I’m out. Y’all are ruining the fun.
  • The good stuff and the bad stuff Jul 10, 2021

    By Christian. Nassar
    The bad stuff: This game is fun but there’s still one thing that can’t be a event or else my friend is gonna be raging mad it’s the party match it was made when my friend first started playing sonic forces after this event is gone my friend and I can’t play together! And this will leave me and all my friends into trouble to fight strangers and get - 2 cups from getting into second place and letting everyone do weird glitches and spending all my red star rings on stuff it’s hard to get them it doesn’t even seem like a thing in the game The good stuff: SO MUCH BETTER THAN MARIO KART TOUR, WAY BETTER STUFF, MARIO KART TOUR IS LIKE TRYING TO WIN ALL CHARACTERS FOR 1 CHARTERS AND THIS GAME is the best because it feels better to unlocking them rather then going into the bathroom to get characters ew gross This game u don’t have to wait for Mario kart tour to lie it’s like sorry were under construction but u can skip so there making u wait 2 weeks after u finish this game after u finish u get cool stuff and in that game I usually get trashy stuff and I get high ends that I already have
  • Got issues Jun 29, 2019

    By Mojo2156
    The trophy system is beyond messed up. Are you up against opponents who are far faster than you, but you have more trophies than them? If he’s, I hope you are prepared to lose a whole lot of trophies, because this game only accounts trophy numbers for trophy rewards. Also, the lootbox system is very iffy for F2P players (I still don’t have all of the normal characters yet). Also, why do I lose trophies when I lose my connection before the race begins? That’s so stupid!!!!! Update: this game is buggy as hell. Item power ups can be delayed for no reason. I tend to lose my connection in the middle of a match, which can lead to a loss since you can’t pick up items when you are disconnected. The dash new Amy and Sonic alts doesn’t even function properly half of the time. Collision detection can be as jack as the HD Adventure ports, and some characters like Silver are worthless due to crappy stats or items (in Silver’s case, it’s both). This game needs an update to fix these issues ASAP!!!
  • It’s simple (edit down from 4 to 3) Mar 29, 2021

    By Risssssyyyyyyy
    Edit: my review stays the same, but I’m lowering to 3 stars. Recently they’ve added 30 second non skippable ads after almost every game you play. It’s easier to just restart the app after a battle at this point 🙈 It’s a racing game with the added bonus of sonic characters. I am a huge Amy Rose fan so I love when I get to level her up and made sure to grind to get the baseball Amy skin... just because I think it’s cute! However there’s not much else to it besides looks, there’s no voice acting or profile cards for the characters so you really only log into the game to race or spend money... so that you can race. Like my title states, it’s simple. This game is really lacking in personality that other online games have. There is no meaningful way to interact with other players. You can’t even view someone’s profile, there ARE NO profiles. No friend list, no chat..... you just race against randoms that you know nothing about and will never see again. Compare this to another mobile online game like Uno where you can add friends and even throw eggs at other players during gameplay— it’s addicting and adds a lot of pizazz to gameplay that makes this “online” game look boring in comparison. So it’s good but not mind blowing. I can see myself spending money in this game if they add some more Amy skins in the future ;) Edit: want to say the new Elf Amy is so cute I feel very blessed and can’t wait to get her 💕💕💕

    Have to drop my rating from 4 stars to 2. The player experience for this game has gotten worse with time -- many new characters are OP and unbalanced on release and don't get nerfed for 1-3 months, if at all. It feels so bad to play against and it feels like the devs don't care, just want people to spend. Monetization practices got worse, adding a purposely bad menu UI so that spending your in-game currency on accident (with NO confirmation!) is common. Aggravating and sad to see this happen.

    The game itself is pretty fun, I just cannot stand how aggressively scummy the game will force ads and p2w on you, but that is sort of standard for phone games. The major issue is that I just cannot play it when not connected to wifi, which sort of defeats the point of it being a mobile game.

    Fun game, cool characters (obviously)... until when you work so hard to earn trophies. even if you get third or fourth you lose like 1-30 trophies. SEGA needs to make it more fair. Also some of the ads freeze and it won't let you get to open your chest.

    It’s an okay game, but being forced to accept 4th place trophies feels like I’m being taunted. I think that taking chests should be optional, because the most annoying thing about this game is getting bad placements then having that rubbed in by getting a chest that says 4th in big writing and one that you have to accept. I’d also like to see more than 4 people per race. I must also ask that you make it so that when you have to close the app, your progress in the previous round would be lost and so that you don’t have to wait to start a new round. O and also, I just noticed that the bots don’t really seem to be affected by each other’s power ups or sometimes mine, they also don’t seem to always get harmed by hitting obstacles, this is so fricking unfair! It makes me want to delete the whole game! I just realized that shadow’s cloud power is extremely overpowered! It is unavoidable and makes the game even less fun! I also see it as annoying and unfair how people can just spawn mines directly in front of you. Why the heck is that even halfway allowed. By the time it spawns, it’s too late, it becomes an unavoidable obstacle and boom, you’re in last place. That’s almost always the reason that I lose or get bad placements! Oops. Look at that. I got second place and got 5 points. The third placer got 7. I hate this game.
  • A few issues, mainly lag Nov 13, 2017

    By tanktank4321
    I've had some issues with this game, the first being the lag. Sometimes the lag is the type where your game has lower fps, which I'm used to, but most of the time, the lag is the type where the game runs smoothly but the opponents on your screen don't. For example, in many cases, my screen shows an opponent getting hit by my item, and then an obstacle, but they just turn and jump two seconds after getting hit. This makes characters without good speed boost items, such as Knuckles, practically impossible to play, since I get placed with people who are better than me, and they spam speed boosts and items that don't hit me on my screen, but yet slow me down. Another issue I've encountered is not being able to do the correct inputs when avoiding projectiles. When the hazard sign first appears, I instantly swipe up, but my character doesn't move, and in about half a second, which would normally be enough time to jump, I get hit. Lastly, when an alert is displayed, such as the low battery reminder, your character apparently stops in place. I've seen it happen at the beginning of a game, where when the rings were collected, the alert popped up. I closed it, and I found myself in the same spot I was at before the alert, at the starting rings, while the other characters got their power ups/items.
  • The distribution is awful Aug 17, 2018

    By Superman dolphin
    Sonic forces is ok. The gameplay is simple and fun, and I like the challenging stages it has to offer. However, I have three problems for this game. The first being that all boosts (except for invincibility) are too hard to control without hitting an obstacle. Since going at regular speeds makes it somewhat difficult to doge things like mines, enemies, or textures, imagine having to run WAY faster and still having to dodge those. It’s nearly impossible. My next complaint is that item distribution is neither distance nor place-based. (unless you’re in first) Which means you can be really far back in last and still get a shield, making catching up to everyone else that much harder. Also, when playing as knuckles, I and many others have been able to spam 5-6 invincibilities in a row without stopping. That can be annoying deal with. The last and biggest complaint I have is trophy distribution. This wasn’t a big deal until the introduction of Jet, where players could see how many trophies his/her competitors lost or gained. Ever since then, the amount of trophies you get is extremely frustrating, considering the fact you can get 8 or 9 trophies in first, the guy in 2nd loses trophies, and the guy in third gains 2 trophies. I can even gain trophies, but not as many as the people who finished after me.
  • Great game with problems Oct 14, 2021

    By AlShehhi3012
    Update Oct 2021 - after spending one month in Europe I released that the game was working fine 90% + of the time, no delayed game play and was able to reach higher level easily .. so the issue seems with servers running in UAE not the phone or my network . Also urgent bug now the game does not open and gets frozen at start screen where news come !!! Please fix urgently. ((( Old Review in UAE - still valid ))) After spending hours everyday and happily paying lots of dollars for this game, this has come to end .. mainly because of the weird ranking system and constant connection issues specially after reaching 5000 points level. Example: in many races I hit all rivals and rarely get hit, suddenly I’m in 2nd place or 4th place because of connection going on and off (I have best connection and play many online games) !!! It happens to some characters more than others .. This has happened 100s times. I’m a good player but never seem to reach 6000 level even with many max out characters . It’s no longer competitive and fair. Will still play once a month to see what’s new but no interest to spend my gold rings and 1000s of red star rings collected since it will not improve anything.
  • I have some problems Jan 21, 2021

    By Ken Vieira
    I liked this game but as I started to play it more I noticed a lot of issues during the game you can get power ups and almost every character has some power up that makes them go faster but the problem is the game moves to fast to control your character causing you to almost instantly cash canceling the affect. Many would think the creators make this to make it harder except when you are not using the affect you will find yourself crashing also I don’t like the lag before you can jump again this wouldn’t be a problem but some of the levels have obstacle to close together cause you to crash and the once you crash it’s almost impossible to get first place. I can’t tell you how many time I got last in the race because I hit a box the was unable to make a comeback Also for the game creator could you please fix excalibur sonic’s first ability because it seems to never be used I would think that making it into a range attack like he swings his sword and a energy blast comes out and slows down the person in front of him this I think would make him better to play
  • Not much to it, not worth your time. Dec 12, 2017

    By The_AIsian
    This game is basically a multiplayer Sonic Dash, and honestly, not that fun. This game plays like Sonic Dash with the same controls, but instead you race against 3 other random players, using items and gathering as many rings as possible to beat your opponents to the goal. The problem is that this game doesn’t require much skill to play, it comes down to getting the items you need and hoping you land your attacks, or if you’re being targeted hoping the game will even let you avoid the attack. Also, playing a lot and leveling up your characters will make them more powerful, giving you an edge over your opponents if you get matched up with players outside of your level. This game also has really unresponsive controls. I found myself hitting multiple obstacles and getting hit by many items because the game wouldn’t let me step to the right when I swipe to the right, and you don’t even get enough time to dodge some items. Try it if you want to play a casual runner battle game, but if you’re not into PvP games, you’ll lose interest after the first few races.
  • Ads Feb 16, 2020

    By Husky Waffle
    I’m not gonna get on about the loot boxes, the pay-to-win aspects, the cash grabs so you can have different characters that have better stats, whatever. I’ve come to expect that much from mobile games. At least I don’t have to pay to enjoy the gameplay. But, if I may ask, why on earth do you also need ads every other race? You’re already asking for money in every other aspect of the game, why do you need ads? Ads that you can’t pay to get rid of (at least nowhere I found). This game has a ton going for it, being a recreation of the clash royals chest format, and the Mario kart tour characters format. Plus fun sonic races? I’m game. And then you’re slapped in the face by a 30 second, unskippable ad. If every race is at most a minute, that’s 2 minutes of gameplay for 30 seconds of ads. With all the rest of the cash grabbing, it’s embarrassing. It’s fun, but after my fourth race, why would I go back? After the 15th? On and on. Get rid of the ads, 4.5 stars, but for now, I’d suggest to stay clear

    This new event, hackers, and matchmaking suck a ****, most of the time I'm going against someone who has played a year, two years or more. I've only played for maybe 2 or 3 months, how the heck am I suppose to win this?!?! The hackers don't show up all the time but it definitely not like they don't. This boss npc has a thing for me because even if I'm first or last it specifically attacks me. Everybody else is getting a free pass to first place while I'm getting a press f to pay respect in back!
  • Genuinely Terrible Jul 28, 2020

    By pamason1129
    The game starts off too easy, then when you get a decent amount of score to your profile the matches become completely unreasonable. Losing points, especially during unbalanced races, is an unfair and stressful mess, and sometimes you lose points for getting SECOND PLACE. The cut off for penalties should just be 0 points. I don’t know why multiplayer games insist on screwing players over like this, especially when the matchmaking is so unfair to begin with. Some characters are more broken than others, the music gets just as repetitive as the original Sonic Forces, it takes WAY too long level up the character you actually want. It’s just full of too many missteps overall, so basically it’s a great mobile game. I had a lot more to say here, but because the mobile App Store is such an anomaly of interface design I lost several more paragraphs of critiques just from accidentally touching off of the window. If you wasted your money on any in-game purchases here I highly suggest getting a refund as soon as possible because I want everyone to send a message to the conniving developers of this game that this kind of game design is unacceptable.
  • Trophy reward system is broken!!! PLZ FIX Dec 12, 2018

    By Joe rosas
    There’s a serious problem with the trophy reward system. It’s constantly random and sometimes you can even lose trophy’s when you even placed in top two. It’s ridiculous. Plus how aggravating it is to win a match and get 20 trophy’s but then lose the next and lose like 25. This needs to be fixed as well as some Of the bugs in the game and glitches having to do with some of the characters powers. I’ve hit several other players with my abilities and they phase eight through them. Also how I’m not able to jump over obstacle when going on any upside down circle loop. Why do the physics for jumping just not work when running on those it’s idiotic. Also what the hell is wrong with your item system! it’s completely random it gives you bubbles in last place! Why would I need one on last place when I need my boost to catch up. And then sometimes it doesn’t even give you a boost when you need one but when I’m playing and am in 1st it just hands boost out like it’s Halloween. Seriously fix your game so it’s not just based on luck due to your random spawning and reward system.
  • The first or last?🤤 Nov 30, 2017

    By Etaw
    So as a side note. I have never gone so far to write a review. I’ll give a score but never find enough inspiration to write. But today I figured why not. Absolutely love the game. But this isnt what this is about now is it? So been playing since launch and I’ve noticed a few things. Like why is it that when I finally get to use my star runner, every single session of 5 goes exactly like this; first race, either second or 1st. After that initial race I somehow always magically end up in 3rd place for the remaining 4. Everything that happens in those last 4 races. Is complete and utter nonsense. Every time I pick up a power up, I IMMEDIATELY get zapped by lighting. Sometimes I’ll be playing catch up in 4th place due to the occasional nonresponsive jumping, sliding, power up use, lane changing. And those events happen at random but at random only when trying to avoid an obstacle or attack. Then the constant lag and service symbol displaying....Break out the tin foil hat or whatever you want to call it. All this has happened consistently since launch with out fail. Whatever the issue. I’m done until fixed. Truly maddening and dumbfounding experience.
  • Before of ads when you finish a game. Jul 14, 2020

    By Gamer987zfk
    Sure it’s fun but when I let one my friends kid play it on my phone there this ad of play games on your phone that has over 100 games? Or so and what happens next? To a website that says subscribe and and next thing I’m hearing text messages through my phone. So I quickly went to my messages that might be important But all I read was thank you for subscribing. Any kid could just click it and not have a confirmation that an adult has to do it. So I’m seeing 9.99 for game town? And it’s charge through my sprint bill. Like really an ad that forces to close or click it and charges u 9.99 monthly and I’m still trying remove it. You need be careful of ads even you put your age under 18 you’ll get these ads that charges your phone bill. And this wasn’t even an app. It’s a browser game. And to be clear this isn’t my friends kid fault. What kind ad just charges you towards your phone bill and just of a click of a button?? There no passwords to put in or info somehow they directly text my phone number and charge to my bill.
  • It’s terrible and here’s why May 17, 2020

    By Ilikehue
    The trophy system is absolutely terrible. It’s like they barely even tried to make it fair. There are other reasons why it’s unfair, but the trophy system is probably the worst part of it. I get first place, the second place gets more points. I get second place, I lose points and third place gains points. It’s so infuriating I can’t even tell u how much I want to throw my tablet at the wall. And some of the characters are also unfair. Some abilities are just way too strong. For example: all of bigs abilities are overpowered. His boost lasts way longer and is really fast compared to every other character like come on. His fish attack is also over powered and does a lot of draw back compared to others powers. It goes really fast and u barely get to react fast enough. And zazzs star trail power is just.. so frustrating to deal with. He spits out a ton of stars behind him and if u hit only one ur automatically fourth place for the rest of the match. I would add more but I can’t even bother to care anymore.
  • Another pay to win downer Jan 4, 2020

    By Jill_Valentinez
    This game was fun for the first few days of playing, now that I’ve progressed to the 4,000 ranks this game has turned into a “pay to win” catastrophe, populated by a bunch of basement dwelling “adults” who spend their McDonald’s income on Sonic Apps. I never spent a penny on this game and just because I know how to play it well, I’m versing against level 16-18 characters who are practically maxed out. And their main account level is about 15 when I’m sitting at 8 & my character levels are 5-9. Pretty pathetic if you ask me. The game is just trying to force everyone to spend money and guess what, that’s not happening. I’ll just stop playing, thank you very much. Even the “new” harder stages are just spam and their not even a new stage.. it’s literally the same one as before. Just less interesting and more spam with random trees to jump into while level 20 characters are throwing out 500 impossible obstacles to avoid at the same time. I’ll go play something else. Thanks :)
