Sonic the Hedgehog made his debut in LEGO Dimensions last week with a level pack that sends Sega's hero through several generations in a quest to find the Chaos Emeralds. We played through a bunch of it on Facebook yesterday. Want to see?
The Sonic the Hedgehog level pack for LEGO Dimensions comes packaged with Sonic in LEGO minifigure form, a racing car and Tails' biplane, all of which come into play during the lengthy adventure level unlocked in the game proper.
It all starts off with retro LEGO, Sega and Sonic logos, before plunging the player into the good old Green Hill Zone. From there we're off on an adventure that takes us through iconic Sonic locations like the beach from Sonic Adventure, the damn Labyrinth Zone (complete with air bubbles and drowning) and a trip through the ruins accompanied by Omochao, who is as helpful as ever ("Fire is hot!"). Thanks, Omochao.
Check out the full archive of yesterday's Facebook stream below. Mind me talking to people in comments you can't see.
While I stopped the stream once I hit the Labyrinth Zone, the adventure continued, culminating in an epic showdown between Sonic and an ancient enemy.
The LEGO Dimensions' Sonic level tries really hard to deliver a Sonic experience in LEGO form, but stumbles often trying to recreate the speed and fluidity. Great attempt though.
Once the Adventure Level is over, the Adventure World begins. The level pack also unlocks an explorable Sonic hub world, packed with familiar sights, sounds and characters.
Pretty much worth the price of admission right there.
The Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack for LEGO Dimensions is now on sale wherever such things are sold for around $50.
