A worthy follow-up to the classics. Sure it feels different, has more modern aspects like the homing attack and will certainly disappoint older die-hard fans, but if you compare it to games like the Advance or Rush series and look at it in its own bubble its still a really solid Sonic game. And boy o boy that soundtrack is amazing!
