Sonic 2006 Part 2 (Xbox 360) – Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN)


[grunts] Take it, you fucking game! MMMMM! [explosion] [rock music] [engine roar] Argghhh! It’s a boy?! [volcano erupting] I’ll call you back! [explosion] [high pitched beeping] [beeping gets faster] [beeping gets excessively fast] [explosion] I gave you the money. Now give me back my son! You fuck. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE. [explosion] Sonic ’06 was the game everybody and
their grandma wanted me to review. So I did, but there’s more to it! I only half-assed it, so why not go whole-ass? Which is the opposite of ass-hole. The torture continues, but the torture is all mine. So first off, I figured out how to beat
Silver and kick the shit out of him. Once you learn his pattern, he’s pretty easy: Just wait for him to try to launch the furniture at you, and homing-fuck him in the face until he’s dead. Finally, we get to the cutscene. Silver Shithog throws Sonic back as
he makes a stupid face and hits a wall. Oh, and of course, the Princess gets kidnapped
again only seconds after saving her! If she’s just gonna get captured again,
I might as well let Eggman keep her so I wouldn’t have to deal with all this bullshit! Now Sonic has to go fight Eggman
at his base, the White A-crap-olis. So now I run around aimlessly once again, until I finally
hit that magic area that lets me progress in the story. There’s no clear designation of where to go! I swear, the game just wants you to run around
aimlessly, until it decides you can progress! I hate this goddamn town. The droning music and robotic
people freak the shit out of me. I mean, look at this! Why are there no guard rails? If Sonic falls, he dies! What happens if a normal person falls
in there? That’s unsafe, god damn it! And right here, if Sonic stands on the curb a certain way, he splits reality into two alternate dimensions
existing in the same space and time. The visuals in this game give me a headache. Every time Sonic runs up or
down a curb, the screen jitters! And it’s not subtle either, the camera jerks down or up. So anyway, once you find a portal
to the next lev– er, ACT Mission, you’re treated to a totally rad snowboard level,
with some of the worst controls imaginable. Leave it to this game to make
a snowboarding level suck! This should be one of the high points in the game, but of course, it’s a warm, frothy
mug of chocolate shit-shake. Half the time I can’t go anywhere, or I
go in the completely wrong direction! Beat the ACT Mission, and Dr. Robo–
Eggman sends you into the future. You get another cutscene, and Shadow the Hedgehog tells
you that on August 20th, 1997, Eggman creates Skynet, and the world nukes itself, giving way for the machine
war, unless Tails gives birth to John Connor! Nah, that doesn’t happen, but basically
it’s a machine war and time travel… Why do you need that in a Sonic game?! Whatever happened to just saving
animals from becoming robots?! Telekinesis, time travel, treasure hunting, bat tits,
human princess and hedgehog romance… This game just feels like it was
never meant to be a Sonic game. I’m sorry to repeat myself, but sweet mercy,
these loading screens are fucking shit! And what’s worse is after it loads… … you’re still playing Sonic ’06. Between the levels taking forever and the
sheer amount of loading screens you see, this game is just stealing your life away! You’re stuck playing the game, but time is moving on, people are getting older, friends come and go, new music is starting to sound like shit to you, I see two squirrels fuckin’ outside my basement window–
oh, now there’s a new baby squirrel already! I could have spent all this time watching that
documentary about left-handed mattress makers, and you could have had a better hobby, like running
around the woods sniffin’ wolfs’ assholes! Could you imagine, getting close enough to a wolf!! To sniff! Its asshole!! Let’s play the fuckin’ game. Every level from here on out
gets more and more frustrating. The platform jumping in the
lava level is some of the worst! I like how when Sonic dies, he just
casually lays down ON the lava! All this Sonic ’06 has got me beat… Next you fight Eye-blis, or Ib-lis,
the prickly lava dick from hell. He’s easy, but you’ll be fighting
the camera just as much. Hit him a few times, loading screen,
cutscene, rinse and repeat. So once again we’re back here, running
around for another half an hour! [sick guitar riff]
Radical Train, dude! Yeah! And what exactly makes this train so radical? I don’t fuckin’ know, it looks like a regular train. Next time I have to travel,
I’m gonna take the Radical Train. On second thought, I should’ve carpooled. Ugh!! Beat the rest of the level, and you
once again save the Princess… … only to have her immediately stolen back by Eggman, and then saved again by Sonic
within a matter of minutes! Next, on to another cutscene, filled with awkward sexual tension between a
cartoon hedgehog and a human princess. And look, Sonic even gives her the bedroom eyes. [sultry jazz music] Ugh, twenty loading screens and another
creepy cutscene later, and guess what. The Princess gets captured!! AGAIN!! This time she just turns herself over to Eggman! A big fuck-you to all your hard work! So now you play as Tails for
some reason, which is annoying. He’s slower than shit comin’ out a sloth, and
the sound of his tails spinning is maddening! Seriously, listen to this sound repeatedly for a half-hour! [Tails grunting] [constant wooshing] [wooshing intensifies] AAAAAAGH!! Now we’re on to the real motherest of fucks. We’re nearing the end of the game, but these last
two levels are worse than anything up to this point. It starts with three trials to make it to the ancient castle. The first is the Trial of Knowledge. “This will test your mind”, more
like it’ll test my fuckin’ patience. The whole point is to take the
correct portals to get to the end. Nothing but trial and error, just keep
picking different portals until you get out. It sucks. The Trial of Courage is next,
and it’s a real heap of hog waste. This is definitely the worst of the three trials,
because you have to beat a bunch of enemies… … without any rings! Make one mistake, and you’re dead. Last is the Trial of Love?! Pick either Amy or the Princess,
it makes no difference either way. After the final trial, you get to ride
an eagle up to the next level, as it shits mid-flight! Get ready for this, you better buckle up your shit belt, because this game is about to get turned
up to eleven on the dick-turd scale. This level takes forever, and if you get a
Game Over, you have to do all these trials again! This level took me over an hour to beat. For real. You get to play as Silver in this level, who for
some reason doesn’t want to kill you anymore. He’s okay because he has telekinesis,
but he still controls like anal leakage. But you should already expect that! She dies?! So Sonic fails to save her, and then she dies?! So– so even when you DO save her, she
either gets captured again or turns herself in… … or fucking gets obliterated! So after you watch the Princess get fuckin’ destroyed, Sonic and Silver use their
Chaos Emeralds to go back in time! Really, so they could in time, well why not go back
in time and kill Eggman when he was a baby? How about go back in time and
stop this game from being made?! Anyway, so you run around town, you ring three bells, you open the final level, which is the Aquatic Base. Uurgh… alright, here it is, the final ACT Mission. By now you’ve adjusted yourself to the crap-factor,
and it’s not that the game is any easier, it’s just that you know how to approach its
shittiness after wasting hours of your life! That is until I reach by far the most
son-of-a-bitchiness obstacle in the entire game: The giant steel ball! This thing flies all over the damn place
with just a slight touch of the joystick! If the ball touches the laser, you fall to your death! I’m losing all of my fuckin’ lives here! Fuck! Fuck! Alright, we’re almost done, we’re almost done,
just– just focus, just focus, we’re almost done… we’re almost done! Phew! [furious trigger clicking] Yeah!! I’m almost there! I can feel it! I reach this room which looks
like a goddamn Virtual Boy game, except you’d actually rather play
the Virtual Boy than this garbage! Run through the windows, kill the remaining
robots, and you reach the end of the stage! So after three more cutscenes and
three more loading screens, it’s time! The final showdown between you and Eggman! The fight is frustrating as all hell. Every time he attacks, the camera moves, which changes the control directions! If you’re not ready for it, you can fly off the platform! The only way to attack is to wait for him to fly at you, then grab on to the horn and
crash him into the falling bombs. After you get three hits, his canopy opens and
you can attack him by homing into his face. Alright, here we go, I got ’em! Final shot! Here we go!! Ah… Damn, if that isn’t the sweetest loading screen ever. That’s right, gimme that motherfuckin’ S-rank! So on to the final cutscene: Sonic carries the Princess out of the flaming wreckage
of Eggman’s ship, the two share another sappy moment, and then like a vision of true beauty, the ending credits. Ah… thank god! Sonic ’06 is over! Aah, I can move on with my life! Except… there’s a bunch of extra side
episodes that are essential to the plot! Uuuuugh!! Seriously, the last thing I want to do after
beating Sonic ’06 is play more fuckin’ Sonic ’06! I’d rather rip every individual pube out of my
scrotum with salad tongs than play this anymore! Beat these episodes, and you get the final one,
which is the most frustrating. First off, Sonic dies! Yep, Sonic dies! So everyone has to scramble to get the seven
Dragon Balls– I mean, Chaos Emeralds to save his life. If you have the patience, you can collect
them all and put this shit to rest. The Princess uses the Emeralds to wake up Sonic and… and- and… uh, what? Wow. Can’t say I’ve ever seen that before! Well, Sonic ’06… it’s all done! Just to think, all the hours spent,
all that time, all that torture, and now… it’s all over? [sultry jazz music] [whipping]
[laughter] Gah! Yeah! You like th- aah! Aah! Yeah! Give it to me! Aagh! Aaah!! Aah! Yeah, yeah! Ugh! Yeah, oh you like it when I give
you those bedroom eyes! Aagh! Yeah! Uugh! Aagh! Just a heads-up, for fans of physical media who want
