Sonic Unleashed: I don't know what to think.

It's not a secret that I am a huge Sonic fan. I have the original Sega Genesis Trilogy in every device imaginable (including Wii)
Having played the latest Sega attempts, I stand disgusted. Sonic The Hedgehog was an unnecessary half baked and overly atrocious attempt of Sega to renew the franchise. Whilst Sonic and the Secret Rigs seemed like a ray of light in the darkness of mediocrity, Sega failed in their own safe bet.

I was so ashamed of Sonic And the Secret Rings that I sold it after I finished it. I know I'm gonna regret it later, when it become collectible but, it felt so bad... I just couldn't stand keeping it in my library.

And then there was the attempt to revive Nights. For the ones who told me to play it before I judge, I did. And I was absolutely right. It sucked so bad that i couldn't finish it and I turned it off almost at 70% progress.

And then there is Sonic Unleashed. I Saw the Europe gameplay video at IGN.
The game looks fast. Just like a Sonic game should be. It also looks like a blended version of Sonic and the Secret Rings and Sonic Rush in uber 3D.
While the whole thing was good on the eye, i've been wondering...

The game goes too fast. Will it be one of the Sonic games that you hold constantly the analog stick on the right while you occasionally press the jump button? I don't remember that on the older Sonic Games...
I also thought when I saw action commands... Is that game some kind of action interactive movie? Especially these didn't felt right at all.

I wonder what Sonic team is up to now... I hope this effort is at least better than the last ones. but I have lost faith in them...

Also, a LULZ video.

About Mariolandone of us since 7:35 PM on 02.04.2008

Hey! I'm a 24 years old man and I'm living in Greece. Video games aren't banned in Greece.

Here's another update to my blog description.
Hi, I'm Marioland and I'm a gamer for a long long time. Greece sucks in general. I'm still practically unemployed. We have a VAT rate at 24% for everything except milk and the cost of living vs the salaries are so unequal, that it is needed to have two jobs in order to run your own house. We are the generation that grew up and stays in parents' basements.

My angst for the lame gamers in Greece is now silenced. Everybody plays as they want. I don't care. I have enough friends to play with so, random matches are a stranger to me.

Younger gamers still can't afford to READ the solution for a game. Let alone play it themselves.

And, yeah. Somehow I feel happy. Also, I kinda like gaming on iDevices, as long as it's not an iPhone.

I am growing old to the gaming journalism, but I still count my self as a newcomer. I contribute to a greek gaming site called Game 2.0 where I post news, reviews and editorials. It's all in Greek so, it will be kinda Greek to you.
I still believe that gaming journalism is a harsh place. Everything you do gets a lot of negative attention (that's kinda good in a cynical point of view). But, now I know more of the people in other sites, I could see that some of them are actually good people.

Anyways, I own a DSi, a PSP, an Xbox 360, a Wii and an iPod Touch 4G 32GB. Feel free to ask me for friendship on these platforms. It would be nice to get my ass handed to me by someone from Dtoid.

Keep Gaming!

Update kinda lame. But I had fun changing it!
