Love him or hate him, Sonic the Hedgehog has been at the forefront of some unlikely collaborations. First we saw the blue spikey one gallivanting over hurdles with Mario in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games on Wii, and now acclaimed RPG developer BioWare (Mass Effect) is ready with Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood for Nintendo DS. As you can imagine, it takes the speedy one into a completely new genre. Sonic Chronicles not only marks the SEGA mascot's first role-playing game, but also BioWare's first Nintendo DS project.

So, Sonic's on vacation after taking down Dr Eggman (or Dr Robotnik, for the old-school Sonic faithful) some time ago. All good things must come to an end, however, and Sonic receives a call from Tails to let him know that Knuckles has been kidnapped and the Chaos Emeralds are disappearing.

The game is a good mixture of classic RPG elements and fast-paced rhythm actions that are used to execute effective attacks. A whole host of Sonic characters feature in The Dark Brotherhood, and you can select a party of four to take on challenges in the world map that will require unique abilities of all your members.

Time to step up!
