But you're the one thats doing it...
We get it, you don't like episode 2, but comparing Generations to it... seriously? Are we really at this state where we want to slag something off that we're going to bring in a finished 3D game are compare the visuals, the gameplay and everything else which people expect/demand to be better to a product which is pretty much a digital dowload title?
You are just complaining for the sake of it. Episode 2 doesn't look that bad and from what people say when they've played it, it doesn't play that bad either. But now that we're bringing in Sonic Generations and saying "Ah well it doesn't look as good as that!" No shit! It was the 20th anniversary title made by Sonic Team and not licensed out to a third party studio for a digital release only! I'm not surprised it looks better!
Hey, I never said you're not allowed to settle for mediocrity. By all means, be my guest.
I've personally seen much better platformers, much better Sonic games, and much better downloadable titles for a cheaper price
. I don't see why I shouldn't expect that level of quality from a game masquerading as the direct sequel to one of the greatest games I've ever played.
No. Don't call Sonic 4 deluded if you actually think Classic Sonic should've been in because it's Sonic 4. The design doesn't matter at all and I much prefer Classic designs. It should be the Modern design, because it's the current design.
>Game advertises itself as "classic"
>Game has music that sounds "classic"
>Game looks and acts modern in pretty much every way because "that's more current"
OK, explain to me how this is more dull than Generations?
Because both Sonics actually look like they give a shit. Thanks to Generations' far superior appearance, Sonic actually looks like he's running as fast as possible and not going for a morning run; dashing forward like mad while the road is collapsing behind him (that, my dear Dimps, is a little thing I like to call tension). Metal Sonic is boosting forward with all his might and is flinging himself all over the place in order to murder Sonic once and for all. His attacks (giant electric thing-thing, lunging at you, big shield thing that he crashes all over the place trying to kill you with) all seem like they're supposed to... you know, hurt you.
Here, Metal Sonic lazily tosses an attack and just floats there staring at you until you attack him. It's just incredibly dull. Some springs launch you around, but that's just... it's like Sonic doesn't even care ("Oh look, spring. Welp. Guess I better take it.").
