I never played '06 because I didn't have the money to buy a new console, moreso when that would had been the only game I'd buy atm, but so much hatred has made me want to play the whole thing just to contrast the truth against the legend, so to speak. I've never had that big of an issue with the infamous kiss except the different face types make them aesthetically awkward, and I actually liked the design of '06 Eggman, so checking out the only adventure-type game I haven't played sounds interesting because I might still like it more than any boost game besides Generations. I also want to try Rise of Lyric for similar reasons, and I'd say the only redesign that went really wrong there was Knuckles, both on visual design and characterisation, and I really like that Eggman too. Now, speaking of Adventure and its designs, what I didn't like wasn't in-game, but on the box cover art; I find that drawing really ugly. In-game, I didn't like to lose the roundness of his black-eyed self, but we also lost all that geometry in the level art the old games had, so the character models were the lesser change in game aesthetics.
