Unlike Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog doesn't so easily fit into different genres of video games. Whereas the slow and more balanced plumber can star in anything, Sonic's reliance on speed limits his options. Of course, that hasn't stopped Sega from shoving him into numerous spin-off games, most recently, the BioWare developed role-playing DS game, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. Sure, having the company behind Mass Effect and Knights of the Old Republic is great for street cred, but it remains to be seen whether the blue blur will successfully make the much slower, RPG transition."
