The point I was trying to make was that it looks juvenile. There's a difference in not being original, and doing something on the level of a 12 year old. It looks like a joke and I really fail to see why this is needed besides to satisfy some fanboy fantasy bullshit (Of which I have a very low opinion), I cannot respect this in any way. Of all the ways you can give Sonic a gliding power, or a flying power, you give him a fusion with Tails or Knuckles. Or maybe I should just ask the question "Why the hell don'[t you just use a fucking jetpack instead of merging Sonic and Tails? What is being accomplished except to shirk drawing extra sprites?" Is it just a reference to the previous game? If so, I'd be pretty pissed off if I played the other game and found out some features were actually given a downgrade, because to my understanding, the last game had the two as fully playable, taking advantage of their abilities whenever you wanted and not just when a monitor was near.
