Wacth it be dumbed down and be really, REALLY, childish...pushing old school Sonic fans out

I just have a feeling thats what they're going to do, reboots have never went well this gen

probably, all they need to do is make it old school, with an actual good story and challenging game-play. add 1 other feature to make it unique and give it graphics that are maybe cell shaded, lastly take out the homing shit becuase that makes it too easy and done, reboot successful.

I'd be happy with a full retail game that is exactly like sonic 4: episode 1, but faster and more fluid, longer, with fire lightning and water bubbles, with tails and knuckles, without the homing attack and with original levels and bosses. I have hope for episode 2, I guess. Episode 1 was good, but it didn't feel like a sequel to Sonic 3 + Knuckles. Felt more like a remake of sonic 1.

I don't know why they didn't do Sonic 4 as a full retail game instead of spilting it up into episodes. It's insulting for a sequel to the classic megadrive games to get that sort of treatment. Thats why I'm waiting untill all the episodes are out, maybe they'll do a retail special edition version.

Hope they release this in 2013 then reboot the franchise the following year :)

How many times will Sega reboot this dead franchise?
TopDudeMan  +   1062d ago
I don't think it's dead, they just need to go back and play sonic 1, 2 and 3 and then bring that good stuff into their new games.
ShaunCameron  +   1062d ago
The Sonic franchise isn't dead, but it's certainly not the multi-million seller it once was.

Sonic Generations on PS3 in 3D was actually a blast to play.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1062d ago
Agreed. Best 3D available.

I thought everything's been some kind of reboot since Sonic Adventure
Blastoise  +   1062d ago
I'll always give Sonic the benefit of the doubt :P
DrPepper  +   1062d ago
why doesn't nintendo just buy out SEGA. that way we can always expect a good sonic game
CRASHBASHUK  +   1062d ago
then it wont be on ps or xbox with nice full hd vids i enjoy sonic no matter what i defo love sonic this gen on ps3
DrPepper  +   1062d ago
lets be honest here the xbox and ps3 ones haven't been good at all. what was the best sonic game to come in a while.... Sonic Colors which is only for the wii. it just seems to me that nintendo working with SEGA on sonic is just better for the franchise
Blastoise  +   1062d ago
Sonic Generations was better than Sonic Colours
DrPepper  +   1062d ago
sonic generations is a compilation of old stages that shouldn't even be considered a true sonic game. more like a re-imagining is what it is
ShaunCameron  +   1062d ago
No. Sonic Generations was just a remake and reimaging of all the old Sonic games including Colors. Sonic Colors was an entirely original game built from the ground up. Despite the latency in the controls, it was hailed as the best Sonic game since CD and Adventure.
Blastoise  +   1062d ago
@Shaun. Stop stating your opinions as facts. I believe Sonic generations was better, also as for Sonic colours being "hailed as the best sonic game ect..." am i right in thinking Sonic generations came AFTER colors so that title is debatable. And as for it being a remake and re imagining of the old games yes, it was. But dont make out like it was a lazy port it was completely re-done levels some that went from entirely 2D to entirely 3D.
CRASHBASHUK  +   1062d ago
we soon see on the next gen
Kran  +   1062d ago
Im... not sure if thats for the best or not.

I mean... if they plan to make more 3D games, make them like Sonic Generations, but slightly better.

SG was brilliant fun!
Relientk77  +   1062d ago
Hopefully its like the old Sonic games on Genesis
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1062d ago
Sonic adventure 3. PLZ.
ChocalateDog203  +   1062d ago
As long as they do what they did with Sonic Generations when it came to gameplay, and GET RID of all the useless side characters that really shouldn't be around anymore (Shadow, Silver, the Chaotix team, Blaze, etc.) I'll be 100% behind this.
