Sonic Forces has received a score of 6.9 on IGN and a 7.8 on Gamespot, two well-recognized review sites. Sonic Forces might not have gotten a good score but, according to GameSpot there was “Good and bad parts about Sonic Forces…”, the bad as told by GameSpot, was “The story was dull, stages were too short, frustrating and had forgettable levels that rehashed from previous games than offered new ones.” For the good parts was a good sense of gameplay movement, “…getting to replay levels to get a higher rank, and character playstyles”. For fans, Sonic Forces wasn’t at all what they expected or wanted in a new Sonic game.
