I think it’s safe too say there hasn’t been a really decent Sonic the Hedgehog game since the 3 main titles on the Mega Drive/Genesis… Even the lofted Sonic Adventure games lost their way by introducing free roaming levels and strange western-unfriendly plots that only served to confuse things (he’s Robotnik, not Eggman goddammit!).
On the current fad nations favourite platform, a new Sonic continuity was created, dubbed the Storybook series. The first entry in the series, Sonic & the Secret Rings, was met with some praise, although like most recent Sonic games, it was heavily flawed. Sonic & the Black Knight is the follow-up, the second trailer of which is after the cut.
It’s good too see the idiots who wrote the Sonic: Underground theme tune are still under Sega’s payroll… Lets just hope the game’s actually good this time eh?
Why oh why won’t someone just work out how to make a good game out of Sonic and the Amazing Machine?
