Is it too early? Maybe Iím delirious from school or Organic Chemistry is starting to get to me. I played the Sonic Generations demo today and yes, I am optimistic. Itís a different kind of optimism than Iíve had with previous Sonic titles. It reminds me of how I felt about seeing Sonic 3 after carrying around the Sonic 2 booklet everywhere I went, learning about the enemies to each stageÖand coloring them in (I was little). This optimism scares me. I mean itís only the first stage that Iíve played, whoís to say the rest of the game is good?
Overall Iím satisfied with what theyíve brought to the table so far with the demo. I know its early and Iím still a little hesitant, but I hope that the game does well. Signs of demise are on the horizon with Rival races, the inclusion of Silver sent a shockwave through the community, but I donít want it to bomb. I want to be able to enjoy this Sonic game as much as I did with the Sonic games of old. Although the Night stages in Unleashed were a bore, the Day stages were great fun. Unleashed was the most modern Sonic affair I played since Adventure 2 Battle, maybe thatís why Iím this optimisticÖRegardless give the game a try, and letís hope that Sega will come through! Thoughts? Comments? Bueller?
Related side note: My roommate had never played a Sonic game before this and enjoyed fast Sonicís stage.
