Spin dash time, wow the game play mechanics of this game seem horrible.

I want to like this game. But this video... for one thing I hate the dialogue aimed at 12-year olds. Critically, after the ok chase gameplay the footage shifts to very slow-paced "adventure mode" followed by what can only be described as "brawling" combat. You need fast-paced platforming, and this isn't Gauntlet.


Look, I love Sonic, and I won't write this game off based just on this video - that wouldn't be remotely logical. But honestly, Sega, if you MUST do a 3D Sonic, Sonic Adventure 2 for Dreamcast was a high-point in those endeavors. Literally take that game, give it better textures and an HD res and you'd have a high-scoring and popular Sonic game.

@eze_sl89  I think it looks pretty cool. I just hope there's a option to turn down how often he talks as that would get annoying after a while.
