I'm doing the same thing. I'm letting my opinion be formed by good word of mouth and positive perception of the games by people who played it and have an idea of what a Sonic game should be. Pokemon Legends Arceus was sort of like this game. The footage didn't look appealing on it's own but with good word of mouth I checked it out and had the best Pokemon experience in YEARS. I will trust in the people saying the game is worth playing.
