Ahh, how the time brings me back to this intro, the only perfect aspect about this game (which wasn’t even made by Sega BTW, these cool videos are made by people at Blur studios if I recall)
I played this game again because it is avaiable at the house I am currently staying at. AND HOLY SHIT
What a waste of opportunity.
Back then fixing this game was difficult, but right now with the current tech we got, fixing this game is actually quite easy and I really wish sega would make this game but BETTER.
The story is interesting (awkward at times because the story sometimes didn’t combine well with a path you followed) Oh yeah which reminds me, this game has like 320 different ways to finish. But the game is such a pain in the ass most of the time.
I wish I had this amazing power to fix games. Then people would see the potential I see in some games. Just imagine for a second.
Running (more like skating but whatevah) and shooting everything in your path only to cause destruction (which could be the dark mission) destroying everything as seen in the game without limitations (walls, falls, pits, poison water, lava, etc.) Imagine a world as wide as prototype where you could either kill every god damn thing, help people around by avoiding destruction or just minding your own business.
Of course some missions would have to be fixed differently in order to make some story to merge well, and to not make some missions hard and tedious as hell (MARIA MISSIONS ARE A PAIN TO DO 30 MINUTES INTO ONE, INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF TIME WASTED)
I also imagine Shadow taking down the foes and for the very last enemy to do a cutscene finisher if you want to giving you bonus to increase your dark or hero status. Also, I would love the gauges to still be there, but to have some sort of leveling system in where you have dark hero or normal powers and you can unlock some sort of skill with every chaos emerald you obtain (the first emerald will only give you the possibility to get the gauges)
As you see, so much more could’ve went in this game. I hate Sonic Team so much.
This could’ve been the grimdark game for sonic as well (maybe, I’m not so sure about this one) Just add blood in this game and give it a T or M rating.
Killing stuff at high speed, doesn;t it just sound fun?
