Haha, Sonic is a great game dude.
Spoiler ShowI wouldn't say "great".."okay" is better for that. But I respect that your a fan and I'm sure you like it.
But it really can't compete with other games on the market, and it hasn't since it first released. The Cluster bonk of new character's they're always throwing in. The insane plots that try to be epic but mostly fall on mediocre. The new schemes they always seem to fall upon that make no sense
whatsoever. The music can be a bit repetitive if not horrible (Some songs are good though I won't lie). They always try to add new thing's to there game like "Oh this time Sonic's a werewolve!" or "Oh Sonic meets himself from the past uguuu!", those are just really dumb. And the biggest thing I can't stand about those games is whenever they try to cop out and go back to the original theme they always seem to screw that up as well.
Other then those small thing's I have against the game it's fun(ish). It's kinda like Duke Nukem, were waiting forever for a good game and the only people impressed by what's going on with Sonic is the fan boys. I used to be one and supported SOnic 110%, that is untill Shadow the Hedgehog came out.
But as I said before, your a fan and you like it so I don't blame you.
That said I really like SOnic on Dreamcast. Almost more then Mario 64...Almost
