Action platformer, ironically, moves too fast to be fun.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

It's a really good game for all kids

I think it's cool that you could customize your own character and the game is 100% rage free.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use

"A 1-Star rating on Sonic Forces? What did SEGA put in it?!?!" *reads review* "O. It got a 1-Star rating because the levels were too short. Bro..." -_-

Maybe this isn't for gamers who prefer SUPER hard, intense action platformers, but I think some kids (and clumsier players! O-0) might appreciate an action platformer with watered-down difficulty, with a side bonus of a customizeble character, I might add! DON'T let the (*whispers "undeserved"*) 1-star rating deter you. Give Sonic Forces a shot! :) (Also consider trying out "Sonic Forces: Speed Battle." It's the very same thing as Sonic Dash, except you race against other players and you have more characters to chose from!)
