Sonic needs to go back to it's roots to be good...
That seems to be what the new game will be doing.
That's good to hear.
for sonic to be good again. 1 stay 2d! 2 please for the love of god no more humans. 3 shut the damn hedgehog up, he was cooler before he started talking.
I really hope Sega doesn't disappoint here, they need to revive the series pretty badly. They need the same kind of redemption as the NFS franchise.
It is possible. If the deveoper can somehow go back to the roots while adding some good high definition graphics, as one deviant artist did a few months ago and gave us how a Sonic HD would look, if only the game can look like that while keeping the old school gameplay than it has a chance, not sure how it can redeem customers though since all the horrid titles drove away millions of fans.
In my opinion yes it can. With the new game seemingly being entirely 2d it seems as if sonic will finally return to his roots. Anyone who played Unleashed could tell you that the 2d portions of the game were absolutely incredible. So a game composed of nothing but 2d should help to redeem his name.
sonic was so good back in the day bro and i hope sega gets it right this time is being a long time we need sonic back com on sega do it.
Sonic Unleashed > Every Sonic Ever Made!
yea, this game better be good
well sonic unleash almost did it like everyone said. only wrong werehog. Im glad that they are doing a 2D game again. I hope its a PSn/XBL title.
Sonic Advanced: Awesome game Sonic and the Secret Rings: great game, fun to play, MAKES BELIEVES REBORN!! Sonic Unleashed: Werehog stages blew, but overall not too bad Sonic and the Black Knight: passable, no real sense of speed Sonic the Hedgehog (PS3/360): horrible just horrible Shadow the Hedgehog: WTF?? Bad game Sonic Riders: It was fun, but no real replayability.. And this as after Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, which were awesome games. I think since people expect Sonic to be as fast and frantic like the Genesis days, but those days have past. A new 2d Sonic title would be nice to see. The HD console crowd are way too jaded to even appreciate a decent Sonic title (unleashed) to risk investing the money and making it an HD title. *This is from an old-school hardcore gamer that has ALL of the Sonic, Mario and Megaman games.*
Take the daytime part of Sonic Unleashed, and make it into a full game. That's all Sonic needs. Hell, the mini 3D parts of the daytime were excellent, and they co-existed with the 2D parts perfectly.
I was always a fan of Sega and if there is one thing that always plagued them, it was that most of their games lacked serious polish. The potential for a great Sonic game can be seen in the current gen versions but what keeps it from greatness is that it wasn't polished to a mirror sheen.
Sega should seriously slowdown with output of Sonic games and take their time.
I would say that in this day and age where a single batman game, a great game, can totally redefine a characters reputation in games (if done right). If sega can pull this one out, which i feel i unlikely, Sonic will be in the limelight again. I am hoping and praying that SEGA will not screw this up.
I hope they bring Sonic back to its root, along with the original soundtracks but remixed.
Watching that teaser, I hope the game just has Sonic running very very fast throughs some cool biomes with catchy music. And I am hoping they omit the gimmicky characters, excessive vocal tracks, BEASTMAN, etc...
