Should I just make a bigger banner for this forum telling people that DIMPS are told what direction to go for Sonic games? Have you played Sonic Advance 1, 2 and 3? What about Rush, Rush Adventure and Sonic Colours? They're fantastic games, and the Advance games-despite deviating in style each game- retain the same of what makes Sonic so awesome, and the physics are spot on, save for Advance 3 which has minor changes. What about Sonic Pocket Adventure? I haven't played that but I hear it's great, and the 2D DS games have always been good too. face it, DIMPS have made great Sonic games, especially when the 3D console ones were shit at the time, and were the saving grace for me between Sonic Riders and Sonic Unleashed, when the games differed in style or became completely crap. Sonic 4 is a problem because they were told to go in a different direction, didn't fix minor issues because they though the public were too soft and would buy it anyway, and because the marketing campaign sold it as a 'classic' game, instead of a differing but respectable sequel.
