And trust me, there's not much of Sonic that doesn't need to be redeemed. So on the plus side Sega has decided to take a new turn on the Sonic franchise by bringing back some of the old elements that made the speedy blue meeny so popular back in the nineties. I didn't think I would be saying this, but it's good that Sega is finally bringing back some of the 2D side-scrolling elements that made Sonic fun in the first place. There's also a new character transition for Sonic and a revamped behind-the-back camera for the 3D platforming. But that's just part of what Sega is doing to unleash Sonic this fall."
