Sonic games don't work well in 3D so what about Sonic Adventure 1 & 2? Were those bad Sonic games?
I loved Sonic Adventure games as much as I loved old 2D classics and the Sonic and Shadow levels were fast, fun, challenging and memorable.

It is possible to make good Sonic 3D games even without forced running or partial 2D sequences they just suck at it now.

Generations was fun and so was Colors but they lacked on story telling quality imo

Haters gonna hate.

I felt that Generations was probably one of the best Sonic games (or platformers ever made).

Mario has had consistent quality in 3D but he's also very safe. And safe can get boring. Very, very boring.

Didn't Sonic have a game that was 3D in the PS2?

I like Sonic's friends. and I like seeing them in the game. I also like playing as them, but I'm not against a game with just Sonic.

Hopefully Sonic can get his groove back and to do that he'll have to do it alone

I'm one of those who likes Sonic's friends, but yeah, sticking to just Sonic will help this game be more likable. They could've worked in the friends like they did in Generations, but whatever.

Shenmue Bankrupt the company its deserves to stay dead.  PSO 2 however is ready to go and SEGA is do nothing about it. Just Announce it for the PS4 already and I will finally buy a Play Station on launch.

Personal opinion: Sonic should've never left 2D and Sonic should never had more friends than Tails and Knuckles...

Stoked on this. Really loved Colors. Glad they're sticking with just Sonic. I do think if Sega made a Knuckles game on it's own with a completely different gameplay mechanic a lot of people would pick it up.

Hopefully this will sell well for SEGA on the Wii U. I would love to see them dig a little deeper into some of their old IP's and maybe give us a new Jet Set Radio or Panzer Dragoon on this system.

Slightly dislike the force run feature of the game but deff still looking forward to the most pure sonic game in years. Glad to see it releases this year.

I don't know, SEGA has given me more reasons to distrust they can make good 3D sonic games than they can't. I guess Generations was straight though, 

btw Generations was just straight, as in okay, it was solid I don't know why folks keep talking like it was a GREAT game. Yeah it may have been the best Sonic in recent years but that isn't really saying much. I know they're all just opinions, but still...

After seeing Nintendo's "3D" Mario of this gen, I'm more excited about this game.

Sonic lost world looks like Sonic X-treme not Mario Galaxy, Sonic X-treme was a 3D game that got cancelled in 1996 so basically it's kinda like a remake, So get your facts straight

It just seemed like a Super Sonic Galaxy to me. I don't play these games, but i don't think the fans will like it.

Tom loves Sonic. He will give the new Sonic game a score of 4.

Think about it this way, Super Mario 3D World is still going to be an amazing Mario title, at the same time, it's also serving to highlight Lost World even more, making it more likely that both games will do very well as opposed to the 3D Mario overshadowing Sonic Lost World.

@Coonfoot One flaw with having a lot of friends in one game: "Watch out! That's a homing shot!" "Hey! That's a homing shot!" "Oh no! Dodge that.... HOMING SHOT!" xP

@larz_1234 You're joking right? That was the best thing that could ever happen to a 3D Sonic game. Personally I always thought that Sonic should have two running speeds in the first place, or else it's always "roller-coaster" mode and platforming gets weird.

@Chaos_Dante_456 Agreed, but it was a fun game. Very fun, I still find my self running through levels every now and then when I am bored. It had a great pace to it, and a great design. I DO agree with you though, saying that Generations was the best of the recent generation (haha) of Sonic games isn't saying much.

@Randy21021 It's just a coincidence though. The development team was not inspired by Sonic X-treme while making this game.

@gamingnerd121 Think again my friend. Looks awesome, you can't really shun a game for borrowing an idea that's only been used once before. Besides, Nintendo are in partnership with this one, so they will sort Sonic out!!

@leikeylosh because thats what it would probably deserve, reboot all you like sega but the gameplay will never work. Speed in a plaformer is no longer a turn-on. it just lame mediocre sonic game over and over again

@abHS4L88 @DaneGamer That's actually a very good analogy. I just thought that having a 3D mario game up to five players is something worth to be looking for after the fact it's not Super Mario Galaxy 3...

@Chico86_basic @larz_1234 Sorry i thought the force run feature was like the style of running in Sonic and the Secret Rings and the games similar to that where you could not control running and could not stop to explore the level. I see from the gameplay that you can choose to stop or slow down if you want to try different paths. This makes me even more excited for this game.

@unnamed475 @Chaos_Dante_456 It couldn't get much worse than '06. This game looks good, and introduces some new features to keep things fresh. I'm also surprisingly glad it's just Sonic this time. I need a break from all of my friends telling me about homing shots.
