I have been a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog ever since I played the first video game on Sega Genesis. I have played most of the main series games and enjoyed every singe one of them. Sonic Adventure 2 on the Sega Dreamcast is my personal favorite, but once the Sega Dreamcast started to fade away and Sega stopped making video game hardware, I thought to myself, wow, no more Sonic, and got a little bit sad.
Once Sega announced that they will still continue to make games as a third party developer, I was excited. I mean, its sonic, how can you go wrong. Everything did go wrong, the new sonic game for Xbox 360 and ps3 was a huge disappointment. It wasn’t what it was hyped up to be. Everything from terrible camera angles to stiff controls and tons of glitches. There was another Sonic game where he was a werewolf. Come on, werewolf? Yet another huge disappointment, if you ever played the demo, then you will know what I mean. Any Sonic fan will be sick to their stomach.
When I heard about a new up coming Sonic video game, I thought to myself, another disappointment, i should even waste my time and money on this game. Right now the game is labeled as Project Needlemouse. They will most likely change the title once they are finished developing the game. The details on this game sounds promising though. The game will be a 2D side scroller similar to Sonic games and it will focus on speed. That’s good to hear that they are going back to the basics. Even if it is just a remake with upgraded 3d graphics, I think ill enjoy it, but i just hope I am not getting set up for another terrible game destined for disaster. I guess I’ll have to wait and see but good or bad, I’ll still always be a Sonic fan.
