Sonic Unleashed Adabat and Empire City Adventure Pack DLC Review

Do two different continents in one DLC double the fun, or do they just double the failure? Read on to find out!

Sound: Both Empire City and Adabat sport great soundtracks. One is jazzy, making you feel like you’re really in New York City and the other delivers a cool “jungle” atmosphere. Sound: 10/10

Presentation: With two different continents, the visuals are twice as varied and stunning. My only gripes are that nighttime levels are way too dark (on screen) to see anything in, and during speedy daytime levels there is occasionally a bit of lag. Presentation: 9.5/10

Gameplay: Half of this adventure pack is extremely fun, and the other half is extremely disappointing. The Adabat continent has fun, fast-paced daytime levels and creative, well-designed nighttime levels. Unfortunately, Empire City on the other hand has dreadful daytime levels that abuse spike traps and quick-time events (QTE’s), and nighttime levels that have slippery controls and need a lot of camera-angle work. Gameplay: 5.5/10

Multiplayer: N/A

Length: Out of the nine levels included, only half of them are enjoyable. With that said, there will no doubt be some replay value in this Adventure Pack, just not much. Length: 6/10

Overall: This DLC gets a 7.8/10! A worthwhile Adventure Pack if you’re willing to accept the fact that only half of the levels included will be a blast to play, and that the other half you probably won’t look twice at.
