    Nah fam, you've got me all wrong. I mean of course a part of me is satisfied that this game isn't getting an easy pass, but It isn't because I'm a blind Forces hater. Mostly I am just relieved that it's actual flaws are being recognized and addressed deeper then a surface level. But if this game failing is what it takes for Sonic Team to realize what they're doing wrong then hell yeah seeing a bunch of bad reviews will make me a happy camper. I don't see how wanting a game to get honest critique makes me have some sort of confirmation bias, though.

    That Polygon review highlights exactly what I hoped for. Addressing the negatives while highlighting the positives.
    That may or may not recurring trend for other review scores but it's a good start. I don't know whether or not Mania is gonna be the "Eye Opener" (more then likely it will) for the majority reviews as a bases for comparison cause it's bout time some issues in the boost games get brought to attention. (Starting with the 2.5D stuff we need stop shoehorning this into the Boost games plz)

    No one here wants the franchise to fail. You may not agree with their feelings on this game, but there are members here who are relieved that the faults of the game and the current approach are being examined by the press.
    For a few years, SEGA has been scoring victory points for basically making games that are somewhat focused and playable. The Boost and 2D/3D-hybrid formula haa gotten away with a lot because it was such a departure from the unfocused mess that was the mid-2000s. Generations got away with a lot too simply by including Classic Sonic and fully 2D stages. From the looks of Forces, SEGA has misinterpreted the praise for games like Colors and Generations and reverted to their worst instincts.
    I’m not happy Forces sucks. When the game was announced, I had a lot of hope for it. I didn’t want a bad Sonic game, but it’s what I got. I’m just glad at least this reviewer wasn’t simply blinded by the mere presence of Classic Sonic and the return to the Boost style.
    My reaction to this review is relief. That’s not me being venemous. It’s me being hopeful.
    None of this is to say that you can’t enjoy or defend the game.

    Yes, it is. And as fans, we want this series to be the best it can be. That means we should want games to be rated accurately, to encourage good games and to discourage bad ones. A bad game getting a bad rating is, ultimately, for the best.

    We are joyous about it because we want Sonicteam to try harder. All the little superficial fan service isn't going to cut it. I would hope this backlash continues until they actually get down to making another quality Sonic game. They need to stop trying to cover up their lies and incompetence and do something right.

    Also: if it matters, the writer who reviewed Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces are not the same person.
    Might not be a good idea to try to use Polygon's review of another Sonic game as a measure of validity.

    Yeah I just wish they went on with their original Sonic Forces ideas, atleast we'd have a much more focused game. (And to be honest I don't really mind the avatar being the primary character since he plays similarely to modern Sonic).

    This doesn’t surprise me. I bet scores will continue to range between 5 and 7.5. The game looks like a slog to get through, and the recent release of Mania as an appetizer is going to make this entree taste even worse.
    SEGA please learn from this debacle.

    Eggman says a few things before the fight.
    Does not talk during the fight, and doesn't even appear after the fight.
     
    Pretty lame.
    Like, yeah, he was ultimately the final boss, but they didn't really do much with him or let his character shine in the finale at all.

    Mad0Mura reacted to FFWF in Sonic Forces Digital Comic (Moment of Truth, Stress Test, Looming Shadow, Rise of Infinite)   
    I think this is very likely a case of the comics being used to explain things which they didn't bother to come up with an explanation for in-game - rather than the explanations having always existed and being imported into the comics.  I do agree that it's a lame tactic to provide explanations to important mysteries or to wrap-up storylines and things like that in tie-in works, but I get the feeling this is purely supplementary and not something you need to enjoy the game.  (Or at least, not something Sonic Team thought we needed.)
    Allow me to put down another expression of satisfaction for the way this comic acknowledged and respected the history of the characters.  Lore and continuity don't have to be almighty dead hands weighing down every interaction; they can be done with deft light touches.

    We do not know yet, but I honestly think it's more so the latter given what the Ruby did previously
