Why can't we get a real Sonic game?
This. I wanted this game, I saw the gameplay footage and was sold, because it pushed all the right buttons... then Sega made the fatal flaw of a nonsense element like werehogs. I don't think Sega "get it". In Sonic the Hedgehog, we want to play as Sonic the Hedgehog - not a bunch of side characters and transformations. They still have time to cut the werehog elements and pretend it never happened and then the game would have a chance.
I can understand if other people feel it will "save" the franchise, but honestly, I don't think it will be good. Everyone said the same things about Next Gen, Secret Rings, etc.
But Nintendo kinda made the same evolution with mario and it worked out! Maybe the reason Sonic has been stuck in a rut is because sega refused to change the formula the way they were meant to do! The whole idea of this game is still a little sketchy to me, but I would be glad if this were the game to breathe new life into an old friend, and spark Sega to try harder to make 'great' games again!
...that's all I ask as my affection for Sonic gets pooped on with every game Sega has released for him since Sonic Adventure 2 on Dreamcast.
This game looked awesome while u play as Sonic, but then Sega had to stupidly make up the Werehog aspect of the game. This game is only half right of what the Sonic fans want. Sega is going downhill. They really need to work on games ppl want to see, like Shenmue 3.
Only a small number of people like us want/care about the Shenmue games... and it would take a miracle to revive the series! Something like a rabid gamer winning the lottery and funding it personally!
Bargain bin at blockbuster..
I had high hopes for this game and it seem that I'm getting half the game I want. I'll end up renting it but just to see if I just should buy it. I thought that this may be the game that will give Sonic a second chance but here's hoping Sonic Chronicles will do that. But seriously how do you not understand what Sonic fans want. If you took away the werehog thing and just had the old school gameplay and release the game on PSN or XBLA for a cheap price than that would have been better. They should have followed Capcom's footsteps with Mega Man 9 just had 2.5D/3D graphics.
I think this boxart is fake..here's why: I believe there is a feature on amazon that akkows you to upload photos and such. With that said, this clearly could be a photoshop render of sorts, so don't crucify this title just yet. If you really are "iffy" about the title, I heard they are releasing a demo around the game's release for the PSN and XBL services. This, IMO, is a good move that will calm the naysayers and give a better analysis on whether this game truly is a pass or fail iteration.
well, if this game falls short, i hope its the last sonic game for at least this generation. i never saw what made sonic 1 and 2 GOLD, not my taste really, but every it sonic game after that was just horrible in my eyes. please just put this gaming icon to rest.
Lol...give it a chance...who knows, it may be fun. This is why I rent before I buy though, just in case the game is not worth it.
