I wasn't too opposed to the GBA Sonic games, or at least the first one. They sort of lost their way after that. But they were very reminiscent of the original games. The levels weren't just roller coasters which is what bothers me in Rush. I'm not keen on 2.5D at all (New Mario I look at you).
I'm hoping Sega will release a Sonic 4 or whatever for Wii Ware or whatever. In pixels it could be ace.
Yes I'm glad Sonic is in it. I was too sure about it at first but now that I've saeen the screen shots and seen the special moves, I'd say that he looks like a pretty decent character. Wonder if the Green Hill zone will be an arena?
