So you've got Silver. I can't deny that as a character, he lacks plenty (then again, most of them do). However, one thing sticks out about him. Thinking back to playing Sonic 2006, I found Sonic and Shadow tedious, harrowing, and at points unplayable. (I still can't get past the Mach Speed section of Kingdom Valley, and Shadow's crippled homing attack has kept me from getting out of Flame Core.) One thing, though, made it worth the money I spent; Silver. Although the physics were still creepily unstable, with Silver the act of manipulating the weird bizarro-world became much more fun. Stupid gimmicks could be creatively bypassed by the hover boots or the "riding a box around" trick. You could pick stuff up and smash things with them; boxes, robots, anything. You could pick up so many barrels that the game would break. Enemies that drove you mad as other characters were now playthings. I think Silver was the high point of Sonic 2006, and I find it sad that he never got his own game, designed better, to exploit this new, interesting style of gameplay Sega had found. If Silver The Hedgehog came out, made by the Unleashed developers, I'd get it in an instant. Would you?
