So, in 2010 when this game came out, I got it, first day. (Along with my ez-furry Sonic hat thingy) Now, I HATED it. I'd had too much trouble with it and didn't like the 2D. But last week, I popped this sucker in, hooked up my Gamecube controller, and started playing. Around 3 days later, I beat it. I loved it. No clue why I made this post, so I guess I'll make it into some review type thing.
So, gameplay-wise, it's Sonic Unleashed without steroids Sonic. However, they really amped up the 2D. But it's quite alright as they really did a great job with the platforming. My only issues with the controls is that drifting is a bit buttery at times and you might find yourself sliding across a bend more than you expected, or the drift doesn't work. My other problem is that the pink wisp is a rebellious teenager and controls oddly. Sometimes I press left and he continues to go right. Then I press right and it stops moving completely.
Another issue is the random increases in difficulty. Mostly on Planet Wisp where after you finished 3 different planets you suddenly are given really small platforms. But all in all it's a good game.
Anyway, I'm trying to get all the red rings. Is that hard? And I heard you can play as Sonic 2: the Emo in Gameland. Probably not. kbyelolz
