Rebirth of the Sonic series, hopefully the next sonics games sega puts will be good. Don't need history repeating itself again do we?

This is the best control scheme and gameplay I've ever experienced in a sonic game, going off what I played in the demo, I've played the demo like 5 times already and it's only one stage.

This game wont get any credit just because it's a Sonic game but honestly from the trailer and the experience from the demo, this is a game I need...GOTY... ok maybe not but the game should get some real respect.

If you think generations had the best control scheme and gameplay out of the sonic games you've played, you CLEARLY haven't played a Sonic game before sonic heroes. Generations doesn't really do anything except rekindle nostalgia for the long-time sonic fans.
