An interesting article regarding the upcoming Sonic 4 and if whether or not it's time to let sleeping dogs lie, so to speak.
I would rather have this than, Shadow the Hedgehog, Black Knight, and Secret Rings.
Those games were awful
I would bet money that this is some kid who was born after the golden age of gaming...............noob
lol i was thinking that too. "Is it really needed?" <-- With the last two gens of sh1tty Sonic games, of course it is needed. Now stfu!
If you had actually read what the article said you would plainly see that he says it's a beloved franchise and his profile says hes 18 and I agree with him. If Sonic was suddenly cancelled after Sonic 4 then the only people who would miss him are nostalgic gamers. Or would you rather they just keep making crappy games in the franchise? You think just because Sonic 4 is coming out doesn't mean Sega doesn't plan to bring another fully 3D game to the consoles again? Get real.
lol do I know you? Better question did you think I would care If you acknowledged me?
Seeing as how they ruined Sonic in 3D I am really anxious to find out how they ruined Sonic in 2D.
" Gamers of this generation know Sonic from the worthless 3D failures that Sega has been dishing out for the past decade." Maybe this game will sh ow them what "REAL" games were about. If the game is AS good as the originals. Personally games these days don't even touch the games of the 90's, especially sonic 2 and mario world. They do get it right ocassionally tho - see resi 4, mario galaxy, tatsunoko vs capcom, halo, just cause 2 etc etc Not enough exclusives on the HD twins is a big problem, and GFA 4 was BORING!
I did genuinely think sonic adventure 1 was great though. Sega need to get serious about sonic, instead of producing sub standard games with him in. I fear sonic 4 will fall into the same pit of mediocrity that the other games did.
Yeah, the last good Sonic game was Sonic Adventure 2. Fun level design and breathtaking SPEED. Sonic the hedgehog 06 tried to do that but failed miserably. Sonic Unleashed almost did it but it was ruined by the werehog. I think they need to hand the next 3D game to another more experienced developer. Sonic Team of today isn't the same Sonic Team as before.
I wouldn't give up on 3D Sonic just yet. What is the point of the race if you walk away 3 feet from the finish line. Would you just quit if you are on the final lap, or will you perfect your run and get it right. All this doom and gloom is very one-sided, and hardly tells the whole story as to "Why" Sega is in this position, and how much progress Sega has made since then.
Here's my theory When Sega had a system to support, Sonic was their mascot, so they made sure those games were top notch, right up to the Dreamcast. Once they stopped making consoles, they lost the need for a mascot and, thusly, lost any inclination to make a "good" Sonic game. Except, Sonic Rush came out, which was great, because it was so simple and stripped down to Sonic basics.
