As the title says, this is your haven to discuss officially released material for Sonic Forces. Keep it to things we've seen in trailers, heard in interviews, interpreted from stone tablets, etc.

So come on - what is it like? I don't want to go routing in the spoiler thread for opinions. Is it as bad as we thought?

A bit worse, yes.

I'd say it looks a bit better than I expected. Probably just a little below Colors in terms of fun factor.

Same. I actually just played the demo and I thought it was kinda fun, so I'm going to get this.

That being said though while I think I'll have fun with it they gotta step it up next time.

This game isn't worth avoiding spoilers for. This isn't Mario Odyssey or Sonic Mania. Another “meh” Sonic game, as that's kinda become the standard for Sonic Team nowadays.

Let's not also forget the impact of Forces on Mania storyline
. On the PS4/Xbone it may be a bit better. On Switch it's just like 'Generations' but uglier. It uses more shaders/effects sure, but the overall appearance of the textures and models are worse.

I'm only going in blind because I'll be playing it with a friend. We're going to make a night of it - alcohol, takeaway, and one mediocre Sonic game to laugh at. If it turned out to be good it might have put a damper on the evening.

I watched the trailer and was under the impression it was going to be as good as Sonic Generations - how far off am I? I've only seen like one game play video and it reminded me of Generations :P

The level design is more akin to Sonic Colors than Generations. Make of that what you will.
It seems really fun to me, but the overall reception here is... less than negative. Not that I blame them for it, I guess it all depend of what you enjoy in a Sonic game and if you're able to look past certain flaws.

People here hate it, other Sonic communities love it, it's a very divisive game. So, a perfect 3d Sonic game :v:

It's about what I expected: pretty embarrassing next to Generations or Mania (especially Mania), but obviously not Sonic 06 bad. Looks kinda fun at least, worth maybe a pirate or a cheap used copy, because holy hell Sonic Team, now more than ever, needs to understand that they need to start bringing their A game. Their C game isn't as impressive when they're not coming off the heels of Sonic 06. I even decided to sincerely entertain elements I've long since stopped caring about, like the story and background lore and voice acting, but it's really bad on that front as well.

I don't know if they'll bother if they're shown that they don't need to. :v:

Forces has a LOT more automated sections (NO SPOILERS IT's JUST THE DEMO STAGE):

https://www.youtube....h?v=NBIQ9KQWpKc

On 0:11, after you use the grappling hook to get to that path you can't backtrack. The screen locks there.

After 0:22 you can't control the character and only regain control at 0:32

You lose control again 0:38 and only are able to move again at 0:41

After you 0:48 a cutscene plays, you only resume playing by 1:09



With Green Hill on the demo it's the same.

Just before the 1st dash panel you can't control Sonic

You can't control Sonic at the Sand Waterfall.

You can't control Sonic on the end.

Etc etc etc.

All stages are like this. Similar to Generations, but with lots of automated sections and about from half to 2/3 of their length they had on Generations.

Fair point :v: but I'm sure enough people will be disgusted by this game and not buy it and the reviews will range from meh to bleh, so they'll get the picture.

Now let me enjoy my guilty pleasure :specialed:

Man, just get Mario Odyssey this year. If you really want Forces I guarantee it'll have had a price drop by January.

It's a good thing I can afford both

Which version was leaked anyways? How's the performance from what everyone's seen. I want to get it on console since I can get a discount.
