Over in the "Abandoning characters from Modern Sonic games" thread, I commented on how Big could possibly return to the games and a possible playstyle for his character. While playing Sonic Generations, specifically against the Silver boss fight, I began to ponder how they could retranslate him into the Sonic games if he came back in a playable style. So, I thought it would be interesting to see how you all would handle characters returning to a playable form. For instance: for Shadow, I would have him play similarly to Sonic, down to the boost, but with the addition of things like Chaos Spear that draws off the meter. I would also make him a bit more slippery to control, akin to Luigi from Super Mario Bros., to give him a 'con' to counter his 'pro' of Chaos Spear. You can do this for any cast member, even ones not playable in platformers like Jet the Hawk, if so inclined.
