Pan Dimensional Being
This game and Colors were a step forward towards saving the Sonic franchise. They do a great job combining the original 2D gameplay (now 2.5D) with the new 3D games and unlike all the 3D games since the Dreamcast it doesn't suck. If you enjoyed Adventure 1 & 2 and like the 2D games then this is a fine one. The gameplay is still a little bland, but it moves a lot better than Sonic 4 and they don't try to give it a weird story like Sonic '06 or Lost World. I can't find I have much to say though. I played for about 20 minutes. I enjoyed myself, but I never picked it back up. I want to at some point in the future. I'll grab it again. Finish it eventually, but it just doesn't really draw me in. Still I'm a little torn on this one so here's how I recommend it: If you loved the Adventure series and 3D Sonic appeals to you then the 3D sections of this game felt a lot more like they went back to Adventure and forgot all the 3D garbage since then even exists. If you loved the Genesis games and just want more of that without the 3D, grab Sonic Mania. Trust me, it's amazing. But if you're like me and you enjoyed the Adventure games plus you love the old school Genesis games and you want the nostalgia of both then pick this up. Run through it. Then go buy Sonic Mania as well if you haven't already beaten it repeatedly.
