Fast Memories Part 10: 2006
Oh my goodness......where do I start with this abysmal stain on Sonic's career????
When I first started seeing screenshots and test footage of how this game would be as it approached his 15th Anniversary 10 years ago; I was all excited and giddy with glee. Because at this point it had been 13 years since Sonic Spinball (don't ask. I just really hate that game) and thought that nothing could wrong with what was touted as the beginning of the "Sonic Age."
Boy! Were we ever so wrong when this was released to stores in the run-up to the Holiday Season 2006.
I don't know what was worse with this game; the patience inducing load times that seemed to have more presence than the player's game time, the story in which Sonic is facing an appocalyptic catastrophy greater than that of Sonic Adventure 2 or the very questionable nature in which Princess Elise kisses Sonic on the lips in order to help with reviving him with the Chaos Emeralds.
I do like how Sonic's social media manager, Aaron Weber; basically skipped over talking about Sonic 360 during a convention panel.
I would have liked to have done the same. But you can't have the good without the bad.
And sadly this game is very bad.
I could go further with my comments but as mentioned in the video I wanted to keep this as brief as possible. And that's how it will be.
