Sonic Omens is a remarkable fan made Sonic the Hedgehog fan game, complete with fully voiced cutscenes, expansive levels and some surprising boss fights.
Sonic Omens doesn’t really revolutionize the Sonic series, but it does deliver a pretty solid iteration of the Sonic Unleashed style gameplay. There’s a large selection of uniquely themed levels, most of which really impress, both graphically and in terms of level design. It’s also got a full story, complete with CGI cutscenes, which takes some pretty wild twists as Sonic and Tails set out to thwart another one of Robotnik’s evil schemes.
If you don’t like the 3D Sonic games then Sonic Omens definitely won’t convert you and some of the voice acting does grate a little, but in terms of level design, visuals and gameplay, it’s easily on par with most of Sega’s official 3D Sonic efforts. It’s a hefty 13GB download, but it’s certainly worth checking it if you’ve got a need for speed.
