Ugh. Not gonna lie, this isn't doing it for me. I honestly think this is gonna sink the series into a bigger whole than it;s already in with a lot of people. But then again, this actually might be a good idea. Imagine if this does well enough, it could become it's own branch of the franchise. Like the OC Sonic series in a different universe or something. The gameplay mechanics don't seem as taxing or difficult to develop for as the boost titles, and they found a decent way to incorporate the wisp. They could spin this off into it's own deal, and work on refining the main titles.
