The fate of Sonic the Hedgehog’s world is in your hands – Join the Uprising.
Sonic Forces is an action adventure game made by Sonic Team & Hardlight and published by SEGA. Experience fast-paced action with these three unique gameplay styles, explore iconic stages, plus, fight across unique added content with Shadow as a playable character! Players run at high speeds around levels filled with obstacles and elements such as spring boards and boost pads. Levels are populated by robots and other hazards created by series antagonist Doctor Eggman. Scattered around levels are golden rings that serve as a form of health: rings protect players from damage caused by robots or other hazards, though they lose their rings upon being hit. Unlike other games in the franchise, lost rings cannot be recollected and players have unlimited lives.

Sonic Forces Review
Sonic Forces is a confident game, serving up a story and stages that go for broke while dodging the pitfalls of the past. There’s a moment early on in Sonic Forces where Sonic says that it’s “not time for thinking. It’s time for running.” The story is well crafted and not so serious that it forgets that the main character is a super fast blue hedgehog against a fat egg shaped doctor who builds robots. As long as you’re not a hardline 3D Sonic hater, this earnest, entertaining adventure is worth a spin.
