That is actually tempting me to get a Wii U!

I could always just get the 3DS version but I don't know if that'll be any good.

The GS review is already out - 5 here.

Well, damn. Eh, I expect it to still sell well anyway. Even past Sonic games that were poorly received still sell well.

I wonder what the other reviews will say though, and heck, I wonder if GS will do a second opinion article on it.

I thought this looked mediocre right from the start.

Damn, I was actually expecting good things from this game. Leave it up to Sega to be inconsistent.

Well, that was disappointing.

I see that at the start of the review, this guy makes SMG2 sound an extremely difficult game. Is he for real? SMG2 was not that damn hard. I just cannot take him seriously when he says the game is cheap. It could be, but him depicting SMG2 as some hardcore 3D platformer takes a lot away from his credibility regarding the line between challenging and cheap. Don't get me wrong, SMG2 had its fair share of challenges, but it wasn't "torturous" or anything like that.

I can't believe fans of the Wii U were hyping this I mean it's a Sonic game and they can go one of two ways.

Will probably get when budget priced. Saw this posted online before and I agree with it, Sega needs to make up their mind whether they want to make a 2D Sonic Game or a 3D one. Flipping between the two in Generations was fine and dandy because it was a tribute to the franchise as a whole, but the constant shifting in the other games is stupid. Make it one way or the other.

Looks like a pretty decent bargin bin title.. But i'm sure it'll get lost in the shuffle once mario 3D releases.

Damn shame. Looks like trying to go after the Mario crowd hurt the game and made it turn out simply average. Still plan on picking it up in the future.

Not a flop.

You're looking for The Last Of Us.
