Wednesday Angst: Sonic Unleashed

leave a comment »

For the love of all that is enjoyable Sega, kick the suits out of your next boardroom R&D meeting for your next Sonic game and change your focus testing groups to people who are actually over the age of 10 and don’t think that having a ‘Werehog’ is ‘wicked’, ‘cool’ or ‘rad’.

You were SO close this time. I mean, you had HALF of a decent game! A game that at least seemed to echo everything that we loved about the Sonic franchise to start with. The Sonic levels in Sonic Unleashed although far from perfect, look and play how a Sonic game SHOULD look and play in this generation. It has a sideways perspective! It’s fast! You collect rings! IT WAS ENJOYABLE!

So why… why, why, why do you have to screw it all up and give us levels where you dump everything that is good and synonymous with the Sonic legend? (I say ‘legend’ as the brand is meaninglessly abysmal these days).

Who wanted to play as a sodding ‘Werehog’ anyway? Oh yeah, the 10-year olds who are too busy playing GTA IV.

Silly me.
