Sonic angers fans worldwide, but after given another chance, who knows what will happen.Some of you may know that 2 new Sonic games will be released shortly. Sonic Unleashed, and Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. However, the question is, can Sonic handle it. As you know, our favorite blue hedgehog has been struggling to show any improvement in the new and complicated next gen. consoles. Allow me to name some of the disappointments: Sonic and The Secret Rings, (only slightly), Sonic 06, and Sonic Riders Zero Gravity. Not to anger you supreme Sonic fans, as I only judge these games by average ratings.
Though Sonic and his pals are in a serious slump, it would be wrong to blame it on the Sonic Team. In fact, I would mostly blame the Wii.
As you could see from the games I listed, 2 out of the 3 were for the Wii. The Wii's poor controls, bad camera, and constant graphical glitches, makes the Sonic games on it terrible looking, and terrible while playing.
We haven't seen classic speed in a while.....
If the Sonic Team were to give the games slightly more speed, instead of an extra amount of obstacles, turns, and enemies, then the games would once again be appreciated, even if they were bad games. The Sonic Adventure games are a perfect example of speed and action. Sonic Heros was when things got a little topsy-turvy, and then Sonic Team struggled to recover, only leaving there new games with sloppy cutscenes that attract pathetic gamers.
