How many Sonic games have there been since the Dreamcast that totally missed the point of Sonic? This video really reminded me of the old games with their joyful focus on speed.

That looks just as bad as whatever the last 3D Sonic game I played was. I mean, sure, it looks pretty, but it still seems to be fundamentally 1-dimensional. There's something deeply unsatisfying about a level that's really just a thread through an otherwise mostly empty/inaccessible space. I loved the Megadrive Sonic games. I don't think speed was really what made them great. I didn't so much love the speed as the acceleration, the curves and slopes, the way you used momentum. I don't see that in the new games. I see patchwork physics and lots of unsatisfying special cases. I really dislike the way that Sonic runs up and down walls in recent games. It doesn't look like it's a natural part of the physics of the game, but rather it's just a special-case to get him to the next part of the level. I don't see any clever use of momentum. And what is with the stupid grinding rails?

Perhaps I'm projecting my own longing for those megadrive games into it. I thought certain sections seemed similar to the old megadrive games, about 30 seconds in there was a bit that looked decidedly familiar 2d side on speedy goodness.

It's awful how they've ruined the Sonic game, I really hope this one at least starts moving in the right direction. You can see how someone has tried to justify its next gen platform by inserting a huge city into the design for no other reason than to have impressive eye candy shots. Presumably this is why they need some of those awkward links between areas and odd grinding rails. Still, I'm hopeful.


p.s. they've lost the child choir "sega" voice on the logo and replaced it with some generic throat male voice - tragic.

The last sonic game looked good too. Until We actually had the chance to play it.

Now this is what I mean, this is the usual Sonic game.
