Sonic Unleashed (released as Sonic World Adventure in Japan), is a video game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series developed by Sonic Team and published by Sega for multiple platforms in 2008. The game follows Sonic the Hedgehog as he attempts to restore the world to normal after his nemesis, Doctor Eggman, splits the world into pieces, as well as his struggles with his new beast form, Sonic the Werehog. Gameplay features two distinct styles, with each being played either during daytime or night-time. Daytime stages incorporate Sonic's traditional platforming and trademark speed, with a combination of behind-the-back third-person viewpoints and 2D side-scroller platforming; gameplay seamlessly transitions between these two views. Night-time levels see Sonic transform into the Werehog; gameplay slows down to accommodate greater platform play, and involves combat against waves of enemies using the Werehog's brute strength.

Enter this as an AR code in the game's configuration settings. This patch will unlock the game's frame rate from 30FPS on actual hardware to 60FPS.
Check "Store EFB Copies To Texture Only.". It may also be advisable to increase the emulated CPU clock to maintain 60FPS rendering, although this option is not available in recent builds and is not required.
- Boss battles are broken.
Sound sometimes experiences strange crackling, at least on the Mac builds of Dolphin.
Dolphin occasionally crashes when running this game.
Sonic Unleashed has very unusual depth clipping issues, resulting in a black screen if the game is not perfectly emulated. For years, these problems were fixed by the "Sonic Unleashed hack", a very messy and annoying projection hack. In and the Dec 2014 Dolphin Progress Report for details., this hack was removed so a proper fix could be found. This broke OpenGL compatibility, but D3D continued to render since depth clipping was broken in that backend. However, this clipping bug was fixed in , leaving this game broken in both backends. Fixed by a proper implementation in . See
This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.

|Windows 7||AMD FX X8 @ 4.5GHz||ATI Radeon HD 7760||full speed, here is the best results for now, waiting for new emulator updates for this game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJDl5zGIb0o||Angel X|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i5-750 @ 4GHz||ATI Radeon HD 5870||Around 38+ FPS (unlimited, normal is 30). Full Graphics and Sound.|
|Windows XP||Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285||Playable speed|
|Windows 7||Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 250||(18-25) FPS||Rafi|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i3-2120 @ 3.3GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GT 520||Playable speed 20-25FPS i have some audio problems||mohamed|
|Mac OS X 10.6.8||Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.13GHz||NVIDIA GeForce 9400M||Playable, but in day stages, sound stutters. Avg. emulation speed is about 60%. When using a real Wii Remote, boosting is difficult on the ground; it has to be shaken at just the right speed or it won't happen. It's easier to just use a Classic Controller instead.||Ac|
|Mac OS X 10.7.4||Intel Core i7 @ 2.6GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M||Nearly perfect with default settings! There are bits of stutter here and there, but speed has never dropped below 80% as of now. Much better than my previous attempt above, though sound still stutters at random intervals (accompanied by slowdown).||Ac|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i7-2630 @ 2GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M||Playable speed, usually around 60-80%, daytime stages result in noticeable sound errors.||DiscoBiscuit|
|Windows 10||AMD Phenom II X6 1090t @ 3.7GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970||Fullspeed everytime. Perfect emulation!||slashlv|
