you can't expect a given player to just up and ignore the lengthy Night stages, Chip, medal hunting, Saturday-morning cartoon tone, and Chip and not have them ask themselves if it's truly worth it.
I'll consider this another pet peeve of mine. This common sentiment of "Well, the Day Stages are awesome, but everything else is inexcusably terrible and you Unleashed fans can't ignore that!!!" drives me up the wall. It's like no one considers it a valid possibility that someone could actually like this game in its entirety. I like the Werehog and playing the Night stages. I find Chip enjoyable. I like the humorous tone of the game. The medal collecting is flawed, but I have found an easy and enjoyable workaround by not blazing mindlessly through the worlds, nabbing them as an indirect consequence of taking my time. I like the hub worlds, the inhabitants, and their missions. I like the art and the music. I pretty much like the whole game. I, and I would like to assume most true-blue Unleashed fans, don't ignore anything. We just happen to differ in opinion to others, and we understand why others don't like the game. But this snide implication that we're being willfully ignorant to the flaws is bullshit.
Let me put it this way: How would Colors fans like it if I assumed that they were just "ignoring" the dropped character and plot tangents, the unfitting climax, the overall shitty narrative, the slew of terrible jokes, the uninspired, blocky platforming, the context-sensitive Wisps that require no forethought or skill to use, the difficulty threshold that would allow a lobotmized dog to beat the game, and other things I personally considered flaws in justifying their like for it? I'd personally consider myself an asshole for even levelling such an assumption at them. Instead, I take it upon myself to believe that Colors fans either don't consider these things as flaws, or that other parts of the game make up for any flaws they see in the game, which is fine. I'd just love it dearly if Unleashed fans were afforded the same credibility.
