"Sonic Superstars" is like a fresh trend in the gaming industry. It not only continues the consistent style of the Sonic series of games, but also makes bold innovations in the gaming experience. This game has slowed down the frenzy of speed and instead focused more on skill exploration, rich game content, and more challenging boss battles, bringing players a different gaming experience.

In past Sonic games, players often sprinted all the way to the finish line. However, in Sonic Superstars, this fast running pace is appropriately slowed down. This change in style makes the game more focused on the exploration of scenes and the use of new skills, giving players more space to experience and explore the depth of the game.

The newly added Chaos Emerald ability adds more fun to the game. These abilities not only enrich the gameplay of the game, but also allow players to find new fun in exploration. For example, players can use these abilities to discover secrets hidden in levels or solve certain puzzles, which greatly enhances the playability of the game.

There are three main game modes in Sonic Superstars. Story mode contains three different story lines. Each time you complete one story line, you can unlock the next one, giving players a continuous gaming experience. The battle mode supports up to eight people playing at the same time, allowing players to enjoy the fun of competition with their friends. The racing mode is a stage where players' speed and skills are tested, where players can challenge their limits.

The story background of the game is set in the fantasy-filled Polaris Islands, and players can freely explore these eleven areas. Each area has a unique design and rich content. From time to time, there will also be shadows of some classic Sonic scenes, such as the Rapid Jungle, Marble Carnival, Punch Factory, etc. The integration of these classic elements is undoubtedly a tribute to old players, while also providing a richer gaming experience for new players.

The design of each level in the game is full of creativity and brings many surprises to players. In one level, a huge snake appears and digs holes. Players need to run along the snake's body while carefully avoiding the snake's attacks. In another level, thick fog obscures vision, and the only way out is to follow the butterflies that light the way. These ideas enrich the content of the game and allow players to have more fun in the game.

The various route choices in the levels are also a major feature of the game. The higher routes are more speedy, while the lower routes are more focused on platforming and exploration. This design not only increases the challenge of the game, but also allows players to choose different game methods according to their own preferences. However, when the game's rewards are limited to gold rings or tokens that can be used to purchase skins, the incentive to explore seems to decrease.

The boss battle design in the game is full of creativity and challenges. Unlike previous Sonic games, these boss battles can no longer be solved by simply bouncing repeatedly. In "Sonic Superstars", many bosses are immune to normal attacks or will hide behind the scene. Players need more strategy and patience to defeat them. While this design adds to the challenge of the game, it can also be frustrating for players at times.

The game's soundtrack is one of its highlights. The background music of each level perfectly matches its theme, giving players an immersive experience. However, the game's sound design is a bit lacking and cannot reach the same high level as the soundtrack.

The local online mode is another major feature of the game, supporting up to four people playing at the same time. This mode sounds great, but the actual experience needs to be improved. For example, when playing with two players, the camera follows irregularly, sometimes causing one of the players to disappear off-screen.

Except for the story mode, the design of the battle mode and racing mode are relatively simple. Although there is a ranking list in the racing mode, players can only challenge their own best results and cannot compete with other players on the ranking list. As for the eight-player battle mode, it may only appeal to the most die-hard Sonic fans.

Overall, Sonic Superstars is an innovative and fun game. It not only continues the classic elements of the Sonic series, but also makes a series of innovations in the game experience. Although the game still has shortcomings in some aspects, overall it provides players with a brand new game world that is worthy of every game lover to explore and experience.
