But I wonder if they are trying to do too much in one game. I hope this game is good, been a Sonic fan as long as I've been playing games. There hasn't been a good game in my opinion since SA2 and that's stretching it. Hopefully this game is to Sonic as Super Mario RPG was to Mario.

I'd be interested in a GOOD sonic game, especially if it can capture some of the magic of Mario RPG, I liked that game.

Will this title be Sonic's savior?

While I like both BioWare and Sonic it just feels weird them creating a Sonic game and all.
