I'm not sure I understand what has happened to Sonic, or Sonic Team in general. On one hand we have really poor looking titles like this and Shadow getting pumped out--but on the other, there's stuff like Phantasy Star Universe and Sonic Rush too (or is Sonic Rush a DIMPS game?). Just an odd mix of quality.

PSU looks amazing.

This...not so much.

Sonic died on the Saturn, stop trying to revive him.

It looks awesome. It has that sense of floaty goodness that Trickstyle had, but my concern is; how skill based is it? How much room is there for actually getting better at it? If Amusement Vision handled this (F-Zero GX, Daytona, Super Monkey Ball) I wouldn't worry for a second, but as it is Sonic Team I've yet to be fully convinced that it's worthwhile even if it's a good game. Not that Sonic Team doesn't make good games, but if it caters for kids (and it could, what with Shadow sort of going in the opposite direction) it may not be as dynamic as something like F-Zero.

Battallion Wars suffered from that. Great game, great premise, excellent art style and presentation, but just way too easy for a seasoned gamer.

I like it, and don't understand why people are having a problem with it.
(I also don't see how Sonic "died")

Seems innovative, but still very much "Sonic".
Sonic racing games are a no-brainer, IMO, as he's all about speed.

He still has a strong fanbase, you know. And frankly, his fanbase doesn't care about what other hardcore or casual gamers say. As long as he's popular, Sonic will live. Accept that fact.

It's like saying Mickey Mouse died a long time ago. Yet he still lives today...

I would give this a chance way before I give Shadow The Hedgehog a thought of a chance.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (10 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (16 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (16 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (16 Hours ago)
