All the resources are there; they can go back to the game's roots, and look at how to make a 2D Sonic game work. Visually the game looks lovely. The HD graphics are pin-sharp and the colours remind you of the good old days of 16 Bit gaming. Level design also has the right feel to it, and is set up to offer a fair amount of variety to both the look and the layout. As the game starts up, you start to believe a return to form is on for the Sonic series.
