Sonic games suck in general. SEGA have made a few stunning Sonic games but none of them are what I'd call brilliant. With all the possibilities they could've done with Sonic's speed it always feels like SEGA seems to cap his games at a point. I'll take Sonic Unleashed as an example:

The day stages in that game were easily the best part, switching between 2D and 3D instantly without any let up. Along with the sense of speed it really immersed you into the game and on some stages you could play them again and again (which I did). But then came the dreaded night stages which are the worst part of the package, instead of speed, you're moving around at a snails pace bashing enemies like you're the Hulk. Just... just no...

SEGA seems to make Sonic epic and then eventually just ruin him one way or another which is a shame really...

@Sonicman It's been a while since I've played Sonic 1, but I believe it's not about how many times you hit the boss, you just need to make it to the top without dying - focus on moving fast, staying above the water as long as possible, and not getting hit.

I hope they release Sonic CD for the WiiU! I could buy it for PSN, but it would be sweet to be able to play it on the tablet-only. It's such a good game, so it's a shame it came out for a system not many people had.

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.

Either You've never played Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic CD, and arguably Sonic Adventure 2 (with or without Battle), or your definition of Brilliant is Mario. Either way, I pity you.

Haven't played Colors yet. Generations and Episode 1 needed work, IMO. Good, maybe even great, but not up there with the best of them.

I'm very picky... I've played most of those in compilations and what not, except for Sonic CD. Yes they are fun and fairly good games but there was always something missing for me. Not to mention in Sonic Adventure 2, iirc, you had to search for chaos emeralds or something within a time limit? Which I found frustrating as hell. I might be wrong as I haven't played it in years!

Also I don't view Mario as brilliant, he's getting as sucky as Sonic, especially with some of his recent outings.

No, you're right. The Emerald finding parts weren't that great, that's why I said "arguably".

The one thing I loved about Sonic Adventure 2 Battle was you could play against someone. Racing through stages and I think even a kart mini-game? Oh and the chao farm was a pretty good idea too. It was a really good game, but some parts left a horrible taste in my mouth, the Emerald finding mainly.

There hasn't been a Sonic game that I can generally say is very good, there's always a feeling there could be more to it or there was something that wasn't implemented into the game properly. I did love the Sonic Advance games though, mainly because you could literally fly off the screen because of the speed Sonic could pick up, now that was awesome! But you don't get that in any of the recent titles as far as I'm aware.

I'm not the biggest Sonic fan in the world, but I've always had a special affinity for Sonic 2. I've played through that game at least three dozen times (and that might be a very low estimate), and I've never gotten tired of it - or its soundtrack.

Ahh, that Sega Genesis bass.

James wouldn't ban us, I'm sure he also knows that Sonic sucks and agree's with us whole heartedly.
I hope to God he doesn't read this...

@Demonic You know, there is an Ask James Thread. I'll ask him if he reads this :P

@Sonicman Yes I meant shields. The Air Shield I guess... Pretty much there is an item that lets you be underwater without drowning, as long as you don't get hit.

Air Shield is Sonic 3. I'm absolutely sure Sonic 1 doesn't have shields that save you from drowning.
