For me the bright side is the hilariously extensive character creator.

Like holy [parasitic bomb] for this short of a game it doesnt need to have as many clothes as it does.

I'm sure Chris will find a way to look on the bright side

SomecallmeJohnny summed it up pretty well too.

As a whole, the game isn't totally awful, but it isn't anything special either. It's just "meh"

Amy's voice is one of the best ones in the post-4Kids era honestly. She really came into her own with Boom, but maybe she's kinda phoning it in.

Rouge always sounds sultry though.

I'd be down for Dreamcast Sonic, actually. Longer spikes and more... rubbery appearance?

Soundtrack is a step up from the previous post-Colors 3D games, IMHO, so there is that.  And the character creation is honestly fun, I love having the launch bonus memorabilia from other IPs mixed with a Chaos Emerald T shirt, I've got the "fanboy/girl newb" look down.  I was surprised you couldn't name your character, but maybe it's for the best.  Since the game doesn't pretend to care, hearing "Rookie" all the time doesn't sound as out of place.

But...honestly, the controls are stiff and the colors are so bland you can barely see anything.  I'm actually GLAD the level design and enemies are so preschool level because you can hardly react to anything anyway.  They put neon lights on the pits, at least, but the enemies look like mud.  And yeah, the story takes itself too seriously.  Rescuing Sonic after Eggman actually won is an interesting idea, but Tails is useless, Amy's voice makes me miss 4KIDS FOR GOD'S SAKE, and I just can't buy Knuckles as a war commander.  Hearing Rouge talk like she just got back from a sleepover with Camilla was, uh, memorable at least.

Classic Sonic should not be a thing as long as Modern is still jumping into 2D segments anyway, not to mention it now raises the question of why you aren't playing Mania.  If we MUST do multiple Sonics, could we please have a Dreamcast-era Sonic that does a jump-dash instead of that MMZ-level excuse for a double jump?

For a $40 new release, it's fun.  And lack of color contrast aside, it is pretty, even on the Switch (I imagine having access to multiple versions makes the Switch look worse, but if it's the only one you know, it works).  Lots of stunt scenes to look at.  But yeah, it would not have been worth $60.

Sonic's been $40 for a while now.

Anyway yikes, when's the PC version getting cracked open?
