    Yeah, Balan is pretty meh.

    - Character is awfully slow.
    - Changing 'outfits' is stupidly slow just for the sake of wanting to be fancy.
    - The fact you lose the current outfit when taking damage is annoying.
    - You can't jump with certain outfit(s)....really?
    - Apparently you can collect more of the same outfits, which...might be useful in some cases, but instead feels dumb.
    -'Bonus' stages are just QTEs?
    Feels like a game from the mid 90s, except the kind that would have been meh even then.

    Started playing Shank. The fact that even cannon fodder enemies takes like 20-30 seconds to kill with knives/chainsaw slashes kinda kills the feeling you're an unstoppable badass motherfucker.

    Ah yes, "Coming: When it's ready":
    «video» Well, to be fair, they didn't say "Coming: When it's finished", and they didn't specify 'ready' for what. It might not have been 'ready' to release as a finished game, but it was 'ready' to make tons of money tho.

    I don't hate 3D Sonic, just the boost formula.
    If we got another Sonic Adventure I'd be hyped as heck, but Iizuka's outright said they're never making another Adventure again.
    I mean, he could change his mind or get replaced by someone with a different philosophy when he retires, but for the foreseeable future, the specific type of 3D Sonic I actually like is off the table.

    Beaten Streets or Rage 4 and unlocked every character.
    Overall, this game is a pretty mixed bag. It's like one step forward, 2 steps back for the franchise.
    They definitely improved certain things (no time limit, no 'autopilot' at the end of sections so you can collect items/weapons at your own leisure before continuing, enemies bounce back from the edge of the fight arena so you don't have to wait for them to come back, being able to catch weapons in midair and perform the 'landing on feet' after not just throws but getting knocked over as well is cool). And thank GOD there were no damn flying enemies/bosses.
    But then they changed certain things for the worse. No running (except for 1 character) and dodge roll? Really? Not only is that a regression for the franchise, let alone the genre itself, it's very counterintuitive, since they throw so much shit at you and expect you to avoid it all, AND they made a combo system that rewards you points the bigger combo you achieve. Well, good luck racking up that counter with characters that are slow as shit so it takes them ages to catch up with enemies, unless you're jumping around like an idiot.
    After unlocking the SOR3 version of the characters, I don't want to play as the "new" versions ever again. They are inferior in pretty much every aspect. So as a "bonus", you finally get to play how the game should have played right from the start.
    Other annoying things:
    - no branching paths
    - no AI companion option
    - when trying to pick up an item whiel holding a weapon, you can accidentally throw your weapon if you are not 100% perfectly aligned with the item, as the pick up and throw is the same button
    - throwing certain weapons (like the cleaver) have like a second of delay for some reason
    - that charged attack is pretty useless, as it takes like a second or two to charge up, and you can't jump while holding it. You're not gonna have that much free time in big battles, should have been a separate button.
    - you can't see the durability of your weapon (in SOR3, they had a health bar for it)
    - you drop your weapon when you do a dodge/lane change roll (it wasn't like that in SOR3)
    - you can't carry over your star move between stages in Arcade mode
    - annoying sections where there is only one lane so you can't dodge anything, and your view is obscured
    - the game just feels like an updated SOR2 or updated SOR3 when you unlock the SOR3 characters. There's nothing really new here at all.
    Maybe I've been spoiled by Streets of Rage Remake and Beats of Rage mods, but after playing those, this feels pretty lacking.
