Hands-on: Sonic and the Secret Rings

Nintendo Wii's exclusive Sonic and the Secret Rings was playable behind closed doors at DigitalLife, and Joystiq.com came out thoroughly impressed.

Sonic games should be on rails. None of this 3d stuff for him. Sonic + 3d = bad. So good job on going back to a better way to play sonic on the Wii.

the 360/ps3 versions seem to focus more on pretty graphics than true sonic gameplay, which is running really really really fast to the end of the level. That's what makes a sonic game fun and this one seems to get it right for once (a good sonic game that's new and for a console? Egad!!! Hell has frozen over!!!)

This console has so many great games. I'd like to see a sequel to The Last Story.

There's not going to be a sequel to the structure of Super Mario Galaxy 2 though. The only reason we even got SMG2 was because they had plenty of leftover ideas from SMG1 that didn't make it into the game. It's better that we got other structures of 3D Mario later on

crazyaejay2529d ago

Agreed. Mario 3D World is one of the best so hopefully Odyssey lives up to it.

mikeslemonade2529d ago

Galaxy 1 and especially Galaxy 2 are two of the most overrated games ever made.

Deep-throat2529d ago

The console was pathetic to say the least, but the games were great!

Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2
Zelda Skyward Sword
Donkey Kong
Sin & Punishment: Star Successor
Zack & Wiki
Sonic Colours
Xenoblade Chronicles
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
Muramasa: The Demon Blade
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

Super Mario Galaxy is getting a sequel though...Odyssey

Super Mario Galaxy 2 was a one off mainly because they apparently had content left over and instead of it wasting they made another game since they were still in the consoles life. Wouldn't make sense to have a sequel to Galaxy when each new system has brought us a different, brand new main Mario game. I'm glad we got Odyssey over it, it looks great and more open then Galaxy. Once you got to certain point in some levels of Galaxy (star cannon) you couldn't go back so back tracking was limited

Technically it's not a sequel. SMG3 would be a sequel. Mario Odyssey is it's own game and possibly new spin specifically for the switch like Galaxy was for the Wii. If anything, Odyssey is more akin to Sunshine than Galaxy.

-Foxtrot2529d ago (Edited 2529d ago )

Each ones are spiritual sequels

64, Sunshine, Galaxy and Odyssey

crazyaejay2529d ago

New Super Mario Bros. seems to always have sequels (2 on 3DS, one on Wii, and one on Wii U).
Also, Super Mario 3D World is a sequel to Super Mario 3D Land.

So, Galaxy 3 would be cool.

-Foxtrot2529d ago (Edited 2529d ago )

Super Mario 64 didn't

Super Mario Sunshine didn't

Super Mario Galaxy was the only one

Super Mario Odyssey probably won't

Super Mario 3D World and New Super Mario Bros are not main line Mario games...just advanced versions of the handheld games

The 10th Rider2529d ago

Personally I want to see them revisit galaxy and sunshine in the same game. The water gameplay combined with the physics stuff could get pretty dang wacky.

-Foxtrot2529d ago

Super Mario Chronos

Time traveling to past games

You heard it here first :3

-Foxtrot2529d ago

Oh shit man SEE it's just waiting to happen

That and another game with a Dimension jumping element

Missing a lot of games: Red Steel, Zack and Wiki, Little King's Story, Bloom Blox, De Blob, Muramasa, Excitebots/bikes/trucks, Sin and Punishment, Kloana, Battalion Wars, etc . . .

Super Mario Galaxy 2 doesn't need a sequel. You could see the ideas drying up when playing through it.

Top 10 Sonic The Hedgehog Games


Being a Sonic fan for a majority of my life, I’ve played nearly every Sonic game that’s ever existed. As such, I’ve played each game so many times that I’ve even began collecting them as of recently. Doing so, I’ve had the opportunity to play games I haven’t even looked at in several years.

I’ve never been big on the classic Sonic games, or really anything before 1999 when Sonic Adventure for the SEGA Dreamcast was released, so don’t expect to see anything before then in my list. To celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 24th anniversary, here are my top 10 favorite Sonic games of all time.
