Sonic and the Problem of Speed

Sam Foxall from VGU writes: 'I got to play Sonic Boom at Hyper Japan recently and it reinforced how far the Sonic franchise has come from being about speed. The blistering pace from which Sonic had got his name, now replaced with repetitive third person combat and dull platforming. But I thought about it more, delving back into the Sonic games I had played, and realised just how slow these games were.' (Culture, Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Boom, Sonic Generations)

A good piece of work, but honestly I like the speed up and slow down. :)
