GI: My relationship with Sonic dates back nearly 20 years. Things were great in the early days; we ran through the fields and thwarted a mustachioed mad man’s evil plans together. But after a few years of bliss we hit rocky times; Sonic experimented with 3D and hit rock bottom. This trust-shattering downward spiral continued for almost 15 years, but now Sonic has promised change. Is the blue blur’s return to fidelity and 2D enough to reignite the blissful old flame? Yes, but some of the magic has faded.
