If this is Generations 2 with more boost, then I couldn't be happier. Honestly, I don't really get the complaints surrounding Modern gameplay. Yeah the controls are a little tank-y, but it's nowhere near as bad as Unleashed day stages were. There's nothing stopping you from going a little slower and exploring. Even doing that, it feels fine to me. To me, Sonic has never been about success. (Feel free to take that quote out of context) The challenge comes in how fast you can go, and how awesome you can both look and feel while doing it. I don't know about you, but those 30-second competitive speedrun challenges in Generations were what made me realize that Modern stages delivered on that design philosophy. And the Red Rings provide a perfect solution for those who prefer to take things slow and explore. So I have faith that this game will be great, and we won't fall into the Sonic Cycle again. In 2015 Jon Rooke was quoted in saying "Aw hell, we royally fucked up" so I think at this point SEGA is focused on delivering a quality product over appealing to the lowest common denominator. Especially with Pontac & Graff being shown the door and Ian Flynn rumored to be the new series writer, I expect nothing less of awesomeness.
