Would you miss the Boost?

Recommended Posts

Does no one understand Sonic used to be momentum based?

I could say the same for Mario, he used to be a platformer, now all he does is stupid party games.

EDIT: The "New" series is pretty decent, as is the latest 3D game. But how long will it last?

I will gladly give up the boost for a better game design in which Sonic is still able to reach high speeds through his own volition instead of primarily by physical forces. But if the latter and the boost were my only two choices, the boost wins out. Sorry.

Maybe they should gradually remove it? I dunno...

At the very least, make it like Colours where more often than not you don't have much boost, and using it irresponsibly will have consequences. Generations tried this (the latter), but it needs more work...

Colours was 80% 2D.

The boost has REALLY overstayed its welcome.

It was okay, but now they REALLY need to bring back the spindash and return to creative and fuller level design and moveset. Aside from lack of other playable characters, the current problem with the recent titles's replayability is the freaking base gameplay formula! It's so empty and not only is it not full utilized, but the ratio of speed to platforming leans way too much on speed to the point where slowing down to platform feels almost awkward.

As stated before, reduce the boost back to the speed shoes and for the love of gosh bring back the spindash.

For you.

To each his own dear Diogenes.

Have we seriously reached a point where people can act like Unleashed did something revolutionary by making Sonic fast?

You could say that, if you didn't mind lying.

Seriously, the two Galaxy games, the two NSMB games out now, the two upcoming NSMB games, and 3D Land, and you're going to say Mario isn't a platformer anymore? Are you trying to look stupid? Because that's about all you accomplished with this.

Alright, first off, could you quit attacking like that?

Thank you.

I just edited that their going back into the right direction, but nobody seemed to complain during the "Party games period".

And really, how long until we get another stupid Kart or Party game?

It's not really my problem if you don't enjoy the Unleashed formula, personally the Unleashed gameplay is one of my favourites and it's really fun. Now, if you dislike it, well... As I said it's not really my problem. :P

I calls 'em as I sees 'em.

You are welcome.

Do you not understand the concept of spinoffs?

Seriously man don't dwell on that, get back on topic. It's about to become stupid bickering :U

Sounds like you think "any" is overdoing it.

There's more spinoffs then platformers.

You're right. Enough of this pointless discussion.

About the boost...

I feel the boost and the overall over abundance of speed emphasis needs to take a backseat to more platforming, Sonic should be a platformer with speed, not speed with platforming.

Thinking harder about it, I wouldn't having the Spindash for when you're standing still and using the Unleashed PS2/Wii boost for movement be easier? Along with some less-boost-based level design?
