Resolution's Jennifer Allen writes: It's been a long time coming for Sonic fans. Sure, Sonic Rush on the DS was an enjoyable game but for a long time, Sonic fans were floundering, unable to rely on their dearly beloved hedgehog. While Mario made the tremendous leap to 3D without a hitch, Sonic faltered. Just look at Sonic Unleashed or Sonic the Hedgehog. Try not to shudder while you do. Face it, we all stuck with the compilations of old to fulfil our Sonic fix, yet the yearning for a ‘proper’ Sonic game was still there.
