Sonic Unleashed (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Sonic Unleashed for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. Unlike other Sonic the Hedgehog games, Sonic will have two forms consisting of his standard form during the daytime and his Werehog form during the nighttime.

 

In this game, Dr. Eggman unleashes an ancient evil known as Dark Gaia which in turn shatters the planet into seven pieces, transforms Sonic the Hedgehog into Sonic the Werehog and renders the seven Chaos Emeralds grey and powerless. In his Werehog form, Sonic’s speed is diminished and yet in turn gains both immense physical strength as well as stretchable limbs. Now Sonic must restore the seven Chaos Emeralds, fix the planet and defeat both Dr. Eggman and Dark Gaia to break the curse of the Werehog placed upon himself.

 

The nine locations you visit in this game are Apotos (based on Greek Mediterranean architecture-Greek island of Chora, Mykonos Greece/Greek city of Santorini),

Spagonia (based on western European architecture-Italian city of Siena),

Mazuri (based on Africa),

Holoska (based on Alaska),

Chun-nan (based on China’s architecture),

Shamar (based on a Middle Eastern desert-Petra, Jordan),

Empire City (based on New York City),

Adabat (based on Angkor, Maldivian, and Southeastern Asia),

Eggmanland and the Planet’s Core.

 

The cast of characters are Sonic the Hedgehog/Sonic the Werehog/Super Sonic,

Miles “Tails” Prower,

Amy Rose,

Dr. Eggman,

Professor Pickle,

Dark Gaia and Chip/Light Gaia.

 

In conclusion, I found this game to showcase the eternal conflict between light and darkness that takes place in the world as well in each and every one of us. But as long as we all stay true to ourselves, the light in us will illuminate our lives and the darkness in us will be in turn suppressed forevermore.

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview the upcoming games Pokemon: Sword and Pokemon: Shield for the Nintendo Switch. These games marks the beginning of the 8th generation in Pokemon games.

 

These games take place in an entirely new region known as the Galar region which was based on the actual United Kingdom.

 

The cast of characters are the main character (gender: Male or Female)(name: your choice),

Leon (the Pokemon League Champion and the strongest pokemon trainer in the entire Galar region),

Hop (Rival/Leon’s little brother),

Magnolia (Pokemon Professor),

Sonia (Magnolia’s granddaughter/Leon’s childhood friend),

Bede (Rival),

Marnie (Rival) and Team Yell (the Galar region’s secret organization).

 

In conclusion, I believe these games will in fact be a new chapter in Pokemon gaming for they will also retain game elements from Pokemon: Let’s Go! Eevee and Pokemon: Let’s Go! Pikachu as well as Pokemon: Sun and Pokemon: Moon. These games are scheduled for release on Friday, November 15, 2019.

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie Super Mario Bros. This movie was first released on May 28, 1993.

 

In the beginning of the movie, the meteorite that hit the Earth 65 million years ago caused our reality to split into two separate, parallel dimensions. The first of the two dimensions is the one where we reside and the other one is where surviving dinosaurs in fact evolved into human forms reside (the dinosaur’s dimension is comprised of one city that is surrounded by miles of endless desert).

 

In this movie, Mario & Luigi (the Mario Brothers) travel to the dimension where the dinosaurs reside in order rescue Princess Daisy as well as defeat the evil Koopa (a T-Rex in human form) who intends to conquer the Mario Brothers’ dimensions as well as devolve the entire human race into monkeys.

 

The main cast of characters in this movie are Bob Hoskins as Mario,

John Leguizamo as Luigi,

Samantha Mathis as Princess Daisy and Dennis Hopper as President Koopa.

 

In conclusion, I found this movie to be a miraculous achievement in turning something as classic as a Super Mario video game into a live-action movie version of itself. Thus it goes to show you, if you in fact truly believe then anything is in fact possible.
