well, I for one played the heck out of SA2. and SA2B. (yes, I own both) but as for game-play, I like the feel of SA1 and the story of SA2, but heroes was a bit of a fail on both accounts. I don't think I need to go in-depth here, seeing as there are others that I agree with. I just wish they would bring back some sort of serious story with out doing some sort of convoluted shit like sonic 06... the game play on that was at least ok where there weren't glitches or insane loading times. but man that story.... wow. but to quote a movie... "That's all I have to say 'bout that."
