Game description: The evil Dr. Eggman has broken the world apart, and it's up to Sonic to put the pieces back together again by retrieving the power of the chaos emeralds! In doing so, Sonic will find himself in a race against time and faced with an unusual situation that will challenge him in ways never before seen. Both day and night play different but important roles in Sonic's newest quest... As the sun sets, a new adventure awakens.
Sonic Unleashed, developed by Sonic Team and published by Sega, follows Sonic the Hedgehog as he attempts to restore the world to normal after his nemesis, Doctor Eggman, splits the world into pieces. Gameplay features two distinct styles, with each being played either during daytime or night-time. Daytime stages incorporate Sonic's traditional platforming and speed, combining third-person and 2D side-scroller viewpoints. Night-time levels see Sonic transform into the Werehog; gameplay slows down to accommodate greater platform play, and involves combat against waves of enemies using the Werehog's brute strength.
