    Considering the games that Arzest have made (And Artoon, both companies founded by Naoto Oshima), I'm really not surprised that Balan Wonderworld looks to be so average at best. I can't stress enough just how much I adore the artistic design of the game, but the gameplay is pretty bottom of the barrel and the Switch port looks like a disaster.
    I kind of expected more from Yuji Naka thought. He's got a bunch of great gameplay concepts to his name from his SEGA years, and this looked like his first big title since leaving Sonic Team 15-odd years ago.

    The invincibility theme from SA1, SA2 and Heroes is brilliant. I love that it just changed subtly between each game, first starting with You Can Do Anything in SA1 and ending with the Sonic Heroes in the game of the same name. Gotta love how Senoue really tried to establish some consistency through the audio of every game by remixing and revisiting character and game themes. There's a thread that can be followed through the games that he was the sound director for, and it's not just blatant and on-the-nose nostalgia pandering.
    Ohtani's approach had been significantly different. He mostly rewrites the rulebook for every game. Style, motifs, callbacks... They're all very different when Ohtani is at the helm. I think that the only theme he's kept going between games is Eggman's '06 theme. But frankly I think its a rubbish theme unsuited to Eggman and I was really pleased when Senoue decided that E.G.G.M.A.N. should take precedence in Generations.
    Tomoya Ohtani has directed some wonderful soundtracks for the series (Unleashed, '06, Runners), but I feel pretty confident in saying that Jun Senoue is the best lead the series has seen in the music department, in part because he almost always brings in a wide range of talent. Team Sonic Racing had absolutely no business having such as outstanding soundtrack.
    Still miss Kenichi Tokoi and Fumie Kumatani big time though...

    After replaying and completing Unleashed on my Series S, here are my thoughts:
    It's worse than I remember, but still better than what everyone outside of the fandom says. It's a game that is very fun (yes even the Werehog levels), but the game's real issues come down to severe game progression / pacing issues, and (in the original release's case) optimization.
    This game locks Werehog's moves necessary for flow (like his running and jumping attacks) behind a level up system, make you go to different levels in a wacky order, forces you to revisit Prof Pickle every time you completed a stage, and on top of that the dreaded medal collection tolls. It's just.. it's too much, man. If people didn't like this game for these reasons, I'd understand.
    But overall the game is very pleasant, and I have a hard time hating it, or imagining how anyone could. The game oozes charm, man. The Werehog stages are (despite everything you'd expect) fun to play, and I don't think I have to tell you the daytime stages are fantastic. The QTEs are honestly not as bad as I remember, but blowing the idea of flying the Tornado for one long one is definitely some bullshit.
    Anyways it's my favorite 6/10. Which is a shame, because if not for the pacing issues and the Tornado levels it'd probably be an 8.5. Or higher. So close, but so far away.
