Ah, Sonic The Hedgehog. The 15th anniversary game for the series. And let me tell you-it's one of the worst video games I have ever seen. Why? Today, let's start with Sonic's story.
It starts off with Sonic on planet Earth, at a celebration for the city Soleanna called the Festival of the Sun's opening ceremony. It is interrupted by... Dr. Eggman?
What did they do to him? Where's his awesome giant grin plastered on his face? Why doesn't he look like a proper egg anymore? What have they done to you?
Anyway, Sonic appears and kills all of his robots in a beautiful CGI cutscene. And apparently Elise thinks he's Silver... come on, GUN is stupid enough to mistake Sonic for Shadow so easily, now a princess mistakes him for Silver? Then, he carries Elise away from the robots and then the animation turns into boring stiff-modeled in-game cutscenes, which like Adventure 2, follows the Japanese lip sync.
Anyway, Eggman appears and takes Elise. Elise throws Sonic a Chaos émeraude that she conveniently had, And then Sonic says "Don't worry, I'll rescue you!" So he just stands there, watching "Eggman" take away the Princess and waits until morning to go after them. What...what?
Anyway, in the suivant day, Sonic meets Tails (who's voice sounds very annoying like he's trying to do a fanboy scream with a sore throat) and the renard joins Sonic on his adventure.
Now, in order to access the suivant stage, toi have to get the light speed dash shoes. But, you're off with no rings, so Sonic has to do a town mission to get some. This man wants toi to try out his shoes that makes toi able to jump through giant hoops. So, toi do the mission. Oops, I almost forgot the very long load times. I believe it's over 30 seconds.
30 secondes just to load the mission, 30 secondes to load a text box, 30 secondes to load your results, and one plus 30 secondes to load back into the hubworld. Oh, I forgot that, too. This game has hubworlds. And the land doesn't end for an eternity. Seriously, toi have to go through that forest hubworld with Silver, and he runs at a snails' speed.
Anyway, the man gives toi enough rings to buy the light speed dash, so toi can dash through the rings and over the ocean to the stage mirror.
The first stage is Wave Ocean, which is technically a watered-down version of émeraude Coast from Adventure 1. Shamoo still chases Sonic... and toi play as Tails. What's his method of offense? Stupid fake ring bombs. Why can't he have the original gameplay from Sonic 2 and 3? Why can't he have the awesome gameplay from Adventure 1?
Anyway, toi beat the level (I'll go plus into detail later), then the Egg Carrier (yes, it returned) escapes. And they still just... stand there watching it. Really, the characters turned into one big boring blob.
Sonic finds a feather from Elise, then apparently Tails suggests to go back instead of... y'know, still following it.
Anyway, let's just continue it suivant time. I'm tired ;-;
