How to save Sonic the Hedgehog

After the new, quite possibly fake, screenshots for Sonic Unleashed were, well, unleashed, Destructoid got to thinking about Sonic the Hedgehog and his past, present and future. Every time a new Sonic game is announced, a small collective of retro-goggled loyalists hold their breath and hope for the best, but when it comes down to it, Sonic isn't worth much in today's world. We haven't had a truly terrific Sonic game since Sonic Advance, and that was over six years ago.

Sonic needs to be saved.

no racing games, no rpgs, just fast 2D platforming

how bout...investing some money in him?

The reason that mario got so big is because it did a bunch of diffrent games, and it did it good. RPG, racing, smash bros... and he transfered into 3D. The only chance sonic has is Either 2D or developers actually trying to make a good game in 3D.

I use to love Sonic 2 and Sonic and Knuckles. Or putting my sonic 2 on top of my Sonic and Knuckles :) ...and flying everywhere.

The problem with that is it is a lot easier to make a traditional style platformer (like Mario) in 3d than a Sonic style platformer, where you have to go fast. But it is possible, just leave his buddies out of it, I don't want to have to play 5 levels of FISHING to access the final boss.

ps. The final showdown of S3&K is my favorite boss battle ever. At the time, it felt perfect in every sense.

we want sonic and sonic ONLY

maybe tails

Or if they were, It took a VERY VERY talented 3d artist to fake something like that.

With way too much time on their hands unless they were putting together a demo reel or something.

a bloody midievil version of sonic, a bunch of fast moving knights (sonic) with swords, have tails people fly around dropping bombs or shooting arrows when they land they pull out a knife and are long range with arrows, knuckles are big shield carrying guys and can punch fast and have wizards using the emeralds to command and attack with magic

then do thier counterparts from the series

or make a decent 3d version such as Sonic Adventure for dreamcast and forget all the extra crap you've put in it keep it simple and get rid of the story line its meant to make no sense its just plain fun that was all it was supposed to be we dont need some crappy acting with bad voice overs.

i really can't say much on how this game is going to be, i've waited on a decent sonic game for a long time.

graphics might not be the thing that hurts this game, it might have a bunch of mixed things in the bag.

were not exactly out of the woods yet, there still is doubt for our favorite little blue hedgehog.
