As well as being released on Wii, the game was released on a variety of other popular non-Nintendo consoles, such as Playstation 2 + 3 and on the Xbox 360. All versions of the game received mixed reception, with all having varying good points and flaws. However the Wii version of the game was said to actually be mildly better than the other other versions of the game.
The levels that take place durning night allows the player to control a version of Sonic that is called the Warehog. This version does not contain the hub worlds that are featured that are present in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. Instead there is a world map which some what acts like the hub worlds.
The warehog levels, unlike the Sonic levels, play like a beat-em-up game, similar to the gameplay of God of War. The warehogs levels are always in 3D, whereas the day levels alternate between 2D and 3D.
Compared to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, the day are very different. The levels are designed differently, and Sonic's controls have some slight differences.
Despite the fact that the Nintendo Wii version is more technically limited, it actually recieved better reviews. Many critics cited the addition of motion controls, and the better design of the Werehog levels, as the reason for this.
- The game saw the third appearance of the Egg Fleet.
- The DLC was omitted from the Wii release.
- One level, Empire City, is completely absent from this version.
