Yuji Naka from the original 1991 game, still expresses his uncertainty in the movie's design. Thankfully, to a lesser extent.
Naka's Tweet: “The design is much plus Sonic-like now that he’s wearing gloves. However, his eyes still aren’t joined together, as expected. I can’t help but feel weird about that one point. But I’m looking vers l'avant, vers l’avant to the movie’s release.”
However, what was peculiarly interesting, was the fact that Naka expressed his want to see the original film on DVD!?~ It seems there is something a father finds in any version of their child, even an ugly one.
