Sega's latest entry in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, Sonic
Unleashed is based primarily around an unusual transformation.
With the Chaos Emeralds in hand, Sonic transforms into Super Sonic
for a final battle with Dr. Eggman. He easily lays waste to the
doctor's contraptions, and eventually confronts Eggman himself. But
Sonic has actually been lured into a trap, as Eggman takes the
Emeralds right out of Sonic's hands, and uses their power to break
up the planet and release the beast known as Dark Gaia.
As the Emeralds release their power, they have a strange effect on
Sonic, transforming him into a "werehog" with thick fur, cleated
sneakers, and long, stretchy arms. After the initial
transformation, Sonic is ejected from Eggman's base and back down
to the planet.
After landing, Sonic soons finds out that, like a real werewolf, he
is doomed to transform into a werehog every time the sun goes down,
even though his mind remains unchanged.
In gameplay, the werehog is represented through a beat-'em-up style
of gameplay, with some puzzles and platforming thrown in.
