Since making the transition from 2-D to 3-D, it feels like the whole franchise is a giant miss at times. Sega has tried to do too much with its little blue speedster, and often he just crashes and burns.
With that pedigree of failure behind it, there was understandable trepidation upon the announcement of Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. I mean, on the one hand you had the venerable company Bioware, makers of Baldur's Gate, Knights of the Old Republic, and Mass Effect developing it. On the other hand, Sonic the Hedgehog games just aren't very good anymore, and can you really make an RPG out of Sonic?"
