Is Sonic Really That Bad Now?

GIZORAMA - Sonic the Hedgehog’s history, top to bottom, has been at the top of the industry… and at the bottom. When Sonic rolled into neighborhoods on the Genesis, he did it with a reassuring smirk, a mechanic that legitimately got the best mascots in the business anxious and a world that would become (thanks in no small part to the countless covers displaying the level on the front of the games) synonymous with the Green Hill Zone. Sonic’s meteoric rise to fame is evident in his two popular cartoon series, his Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon and countless merchandise items that appeared at the time of his early rise to stardom. Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles would all go on to be contenders for best Genesis game. When the Genesis was relevant, no-one would have predicted that the sands of time could deliver anything other than more good news for our favorite hedgehog.

Personally i have never had a problem with Sonic games, ever. If people really thought that Sonic Heroes had poor level design and was glitchy don't know what they are talking about, i love Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 but those 2 were far more glitchy than Sonic Heroes, and Sonic Heroes had a brilliant level design. And people complaining that Shadow the Hedgehog didn't feel like a Sonic game are bit stupid really, IT'S NOT A SONIC GAME. It's Shadow the Hedgehog, not Sonic, why should it be the same ? It's not my favourite game but it's not awful. I also feel Sonic 2006 is unfairly criticized, yes there are a fair few bugs, but for me they can be easy to come to terms with and once you get used to the game it's one of the best Sonic games of the lot. The newer games are clearly the way forward for Sonic though and i must admit they are fantastic to play, i just wish they had a better storyline and included some of the characters again.
