WorthPlaying brings us the latest review of BioWare's Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, giving the Nintendo DS RPG a 6.5/10 and calling it "slightly subpar."
Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood is a complete average, if not slightly subpar, RPG. If it wasn't for the fact that it had Sonic characters in it, it wouldn't stand out at all. The combat system is interesting but flawed, the gameplay is slow and rather tedious and the plot is as cookie-cutter as they come. There is very little attempt made to make the game feel anything like a Sonic title, and if it weren't for the occasional loop, you could easily replace Sonic and friends with original characters without losing anything but name recognition. A game for Sonic fans and RPG die-hards only, with anyone else being better served by picking up any of the other and more interesting RPGs that have hit the DS in the past month.
