    I can't help but think this is what they say at Sonic Team, tears in their eyes. Is it really that important to keep an old 90s game character relevant?

    Sonic will forever be apart of Gaming History no matter how many floppy games he creates. He's just going through his Mariah Carey "Glitter" album phase and will have an Empancipation Of Mimi soon :'(

    In all seriousness though, why do we need this thread? The only new sonic game known to be in the works right now is another iOS thing like Sonic jump and that's not worth discussing at all.

    Mind you, it does seem odd that after Sonic 06 and Unleashed, Sonic kept going anyway and then after no less then two good games (Colours and Generations) that he seemingly disappeared.

    Didn't Sega say something a year or two ago that they wanted to give Sonic a break?Maybe that's why.

    Well it didn't take long for the thread to go off track, which I pretty much expected.

    I doubt that since they made crappy Sonic games like Shadow The Hedgehog, Sonic 06, Heroes, Sonic Adventure 2, Black Knight, Secret Rings and the Sonic and Mario Olympic Games.

    To them they just see Sonic as a way making their pay check.

    Not true since Sonic and All Star Racing: transformed was released last year, plus we know that there's a Sonic coming this years. Just that we have no idea what game it is or what system it being released for.

    Sega said nothing of the sort. In fact they stated that Sonic was one of the games that will get a retail release.

    SA2 and Heroes weren't crappy games.

    While I definitely agree that I wouldn't lump them in with Secret Rings or Sonic '06, it all comes down to opinion.

    Heroes was kinda meh for me though. The game just laid it on too thick, having to hear "Teamwork!" every five minutes, and the level designs didn't seem too new or interesting compared to the Sonic Adventure games. SA2 was good, although not as fun for me as the original Sonic Adventure. Again though, just my opinion.

    I make no claim of being perfect or always right. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.

    This is pretty much what I think whenever I hear sonic (or any other animal mascot platformer) mentioned these days.

    I am not against new Sonic games by any means, but I don't think we should have more Sonic games just for the sake of having them.

    On a more positive note, I am thinking about eventually picking up Sonic Colours for Wii since I have heard good things about it.

    Yeah, they said this year we're supposed to be getting one boxed game and "several new digital titles".

    So let's see, so far we've got Sonic Jump, anything else so far?

    I think the boxed title will be announced at E3, and the digital titles will consist of either rereleases of old games, or more mobile games. Maybe something related to the Sonic 4 series if we're unlucky enough.

    It's basically Unleashed/Generations style gameplay with a more restricted boost (the boost meter only fills up when defeating enemies, meaning you can't spam it), more 2D filled with blocky platforming, and several temporary powerups (the Wisps). Make of that what you will.

    I'd recommend it. The control style is roughly the same as Unleashed Day and Generations Console Modern, but the levels are considerably more platform-y, due to the limited boost and platforming oriented wisp powers. The levels are good, although too heavily skewed to the 2D side in my opinion. The visuals are beautiful and the sound track is brilliant, and the dialogue is actually pretty funny, especially Eggman's announcements, though the plot could probably have been cut entirely. The game also boasts one of the best and most fun final bosses in the entire series.
    However the game is very short, even with the Red Rings and S ranks to collect, some of the level gimicks are annoying (looking at you, Blue Cube and you, Stupid Floaty Spring Thing) and the multiplayer mode is pretty awful.

    Yeah, I probably should have provided some Sonic related topics to discuss, to give the thread some guidence. Luckily, it appears to be back on track.

    Heroes I could agree on. SA2... not so much. But it's still not as bad as the other games he listed.

    Implying Castlevania would be better with Sonic.
