Yup, the 15th anniversary game has now turned 15 itself. Where does the time go. What can be said about this game that hasn't already been said, so I'll try to keep this brief. This game has a lot of meaning to me and the franchise as a whole to put it mildly, that even a decade and a half later, it's still arguably a huge stain on the franchise's reputation that even popular gaming sites still talk about to this very day. It's likely the reason the series has become so safe and unambitious as of late, and it's pretty much the point when the supporting characters all had reduced roles and the Flanderization starting to get real apparent. This game is infamous for a reason. I have so many mixed feelings about this game ; On an aesthetic level, it has almost everything that really got me attached to this series; a larger than life narrative, while progressing the character arcs of my favorites (i.e. Team Dark) along with a slew of different story perspectives. On the other hand, god this game fucking sucks to play so much; I was thirteen when I played this game and even I knew how frustrating this shit was. I never went back to play it after my initial playthrough cuz I just didn't have the patience. And this game was pretty much the point when the entire gaming community and most of the fanbase essentially turned on Sonic. Kids nowadays think Forces was a betrayal of the series? Naw man, that game is child's play compared to the fall out of this game. You couldn't even talk about Sonic online without someone mentioning how terrible this game was. It was EVERYWHERE. Everything Sonic did from here on out would be scrutinized no matter how miniscule it was, from both the mainstream and especially the fanbase. Even on this very site, 06 topics were straight up banned for most of the 2010's for how heated they were. It was that bad. Ok, I think I said enough. This is just a mini retrospective on this game since its the 15th anniversary and all. So drop those retrospectives yourself.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2b2MJObkYc This is the official remix of Dreams of an Absolution from Sonic Misadventures, made by the fantastic Faseeh and Zachary Frazier (That's me)! You've also may have heard this when we previewed it at SEGABits' Sonic and Sega Fan Jam! Song Creators: Faseeh - https://soundcloud.com/gottagofas and https://www.youtube.com/user/GottaGoFas Zachary Frazier - https://soundcloud.com/zachary-frazier and https://www.youtube.com/user/ZachariahFrazz92 Noah Copeland - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp8P9yOaQXtIbrKyTfTcgSQ "Hey everyone. I, first, wanted to say thank you so much for taking the time to listen to this cover of Dreams of an Absolution. I had the honor to work with the fantastic Faseeh and the amazing Noah Copeland. Without them, this song wouldn't have happened. This means so much to me. So much. I've been wanting to cover this song since 2006, but I was super afraid if I could do this song justice because the original is iconic. This is basically a dream come true to me. I truly hope that you guys will like this song. I want you guys to have as much as fun listening to it as we did making it for you all. That's all. We spent a good 4 months making this song as great as we can. I just hope I did Bentley Jones and the rest of the team proud with this song." - Zachary (Konoha) Please share this around or tell your friends about it!!! Tell us what you think as well! And watch out for the show coming to Tails' Channel soon!
