    Making Forces an....Archie tie-in? And then not having the Archie writer write for the game?

    Nah. Don't think so.

    FWIW, what I have in mind isn't "a minor change", but I can show better than I can try to convince anyone the playstyle isn't fatally flawed. Gimme 7 years.

    I still haven't seen enough of Forces to know if Sonic Team "gets it" anymore, but I can infer from their apparent lack of faith in the core gameplay that they don't think they get it.

    Seaside Hill. More of that level design. Bring back grinding controls from SA2, so we have less literal on-rails sections. Fiddle with the boost a bit to make it more of a challenge to use (if I can have an idea, so can ST).

    If the problem is you need more time to crank out levels for this playstyle, take that time. Or simplify the bloody artstyle Jesus. I don't need my Sonic games looking so cinematic.

    Create a character. In a Sonic game. A platformer. The fuck are they thinking? Create-a-character only makes sense with RPG elements. Do they really think there's enough depth to the gameplay to throw RPG elements into the mix? It's a bloody platformer for crying out loud.


    Blinx 2 (a platformer, directed by Naoto Oshima) had a purely cosmetic character creator. It was generally well-received, with the only complaint being that people wanted to play as Blinx, not as Big Cat (genuinely one of the auto-generated names available).

    And it works much the same way as this will work, for much the same reason. Everyone loves character customisation. It allows the player to express their creativity. It's not a bad thing. It doesn't need RPG elements to work - why would it?


    Fair points. But it worked with Blinx because his gameplay wasn't character focused. He could do the things he could do because he had the equipment for it. A purely cosmetic character creator fits right in.

    This isn't a purely cosmetic character creator though.

    Missed the storm but yea. Sonic Forces ain't for me. I might rent this dumpster fire but that's as far as I'll go.

    Mania needs to outsell this game. Actually fuck that, it needs to out-profit this game. Way to fail SoJ. Way to fail.
