    Sonic Team's unannounced Sonic game

    Is anyone else curious? Since Sonic Boom is the last of the three exclusive Sonic games for Nintendo platforms, I would expect the series to make the jump to PS4 and Xbox One, with Sonic Team's unannounced Sonic game. They only said it would "use the traditional look and mechanics of the series".

    Personally, I want Sega to use the opportunity to announce Sonic Adventure 3 but they've probably moved on from that already. I was just disappointed when they revealed Sonic Boom -- the character designs looked stupid and the graphics do not compliment them at all. Thankfully, it was not Sonic Team's game.

    Well, now that you've said something, I'm curious, as I wasn't even aware they were working on anything lol...

    I'll always eat up anything 3D Sonic-related, despite their track record (although lately they seem to be getting it together slowly)...

    Of course I'm curious, but it's hard to get excited about Sonic games, since the last truly great Sonic game was probably Sonic Adventure 2.

    Ideally, I'd want a game that pushes the series forward, while also retaining the simplicity of the original games.

    Unless it's SA3 or Sonic Heroes 2, I don't really care. The series is on it's deathbed. They've essentially written most of the characters out of the game (Shadow, Silver, etc.) and try to do something "innovative" every time they make a new one, which just kills the vibe of the game. I hope they can do something to catch my interest, but I think that Sonic is slowly spinning down the drain.

    You might be interested in Sonic Chronicles. It was BioWare's attempt at a Sonic RPG.

    I actually didn't like Sonic Adventure 2 all that much...

    Sonic Generations, Sonic Colors, and Sonic Lost World (what I played of it) were all pretty great imo...

    No way, sonic adventure 1 and 2 on dreamcast were some of the best and highest rated sonic games. The sonic games started going down after that. If sega does a full fledged sonic adventure 3, i'd be all for it. I won't bother with low budget spinoffs.

    I can't imagine them making a game other than Sonic Adventure 3 at this point. They haven't had a big sonic game in ages. Sonic Lost World was a let down.

    Sonic The Hedgehog (2006) was basically Sonic Adventure 3 though. It just wasn't made well (although I did enjoy the actual Sonic levels).

    Also, since the last "Sonic Adventure" game came out 13 years ago, I don't know if SEGA would want to use that brand name anymore at this point. Younger kids don't know about Sonic Adventure.

    Unfortunately, this is true. And this new "reboot" is absolutely horrible.

    Does that matter? In my opinion, of course, I haven't liked any Sonic game since Heroes. And I'm willing to bet that I won't like the reboot as well.

    Notice the I this time

    I was just curious, because I haven't seen any gameplay or anything so for me it's hard to judge. I'm not a fan of the art either, or most modern sonic games, but the team behind it is quite interesting

    Big Red Button was chosen due to the studio's adventure game portfolio and leader, Bob Rafei of the Crash Bandicoot, Uncharted and Jak and Daxter series
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_B...14_video_game)

    and also the team has a lot of freedom and inspiration is coming from modern cartoons like adventure time

    I'm cautiously optimistic, but yeah, the character designs are still weird

    There's a trailer floating around with a bit of gameplay. If I can find it, i'll post it.

    IDK tho. The thing that turns me away from this reboot is the cartoony design. My favorite Sonic game to date was SA2:B. If you compare what that game was to what this one looks like, you'll see why I'm not very excited about the reboot. It just doesn't give me that "Sonic" feeling. They've almost cut out about 75% of the characters since Sonic '06. Hell, I thought Silver, Rouge, and others just stopped existing. While Sonic's design has naturally gone unchanged for over 15+ years, I miss the simple days of homing attacks at beetles and the chao garden

    The target audience isn't for people my age so I guess it's more of a biased judgement from an older fan.

    The fan boys on this site get annoying Jesus Christ.....Anyways Sonic adventure games were bad ass, though after those games its kinda been nothing but crappy sonic games. A legit good Sonic adventure 3 would be amazing but it's hard not being skeptical after so many failures. HOPEFULLY they make a decent Sonic game.

    Ain't that the truth. Sonic 4 tried to replicate the once awesome series. Sonic died with the Sega Genesis.

    That's like saying Metal Gear died on PS1.
