SONIC FORCES

SONIC FORCES

Fight through a world destroyed by Dr. Eggman and a powerful new villain in SONIC FORCES, the new fast-paced action platformer from the team that brought you Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations. SONIC FORCES lets you speed through rolling ruined landscapes as Modern Sonic, catapult past perilous platforms as Classic Sonic, and use powerful new gadgets as your own Custom Hero Character.



This weekend you could grab a free 1000Gs. Arcade Classics Anniversary Collection has 17 achievements that can all be unlocked in an estimated five to six hours. Some of the achievements might be a little tricky and require a bit of grinding, but considering you have up until Monday to play the collection, you should have enough time to polish this one off. Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD and Sonic Forces both have estimated completion times of around 25 hours, so you might not get those done in the time you have left. Otherwise, they are both decent titles and some fun can be had from the two.

As always, these games are all discounted on the Microsoft Store and any progress you make will transfer over to the game if you decide to make a purchase.
