Review: Sonic Frontiers is a fine return to form for the series

It may have had a mixed reception earlier this year, but Sonic Frontiers' final form is a brilliantly refreshing adventure that gives the series a much-needed shake-up. The occasional control and camera 'quirks' still pop their head up, but they appear far less frequently than Sonic fans will be used to, making for a much less frustrating experience overall. We would absolutely welcome more of this.

  • Exploring its open worlds is a treat
  • A healthy selection of linear stages to play through too
  • A solid 20-hour adventure with a surprisingly engaging plot
  • Visually gorgeous at times on current-gen, and the soundtrack is superb
  • Camera and controls still occasionally play up, though they've been tightened up a lot
