With the recent success of Sonic Mania earlier this year, proving that '2-D Sonic' still has what it takes in modern gaming, it's now time to shine the spotlight on Sonic Forces with their '3-D Sonic'. But can SEGA clean up the mess of previous 3-D outings and continue on from what made Sonic Generations good? The story of Sonic Forces starts you out as modern Sonic racing through the iconic Green Hill Zone, albeit in an unnecessary zone - how many times does this zone need to be recreated with each iteration of Sonic? Nevertheless it is still a ... Read More »

The Sonic cycle has been synonymous among fans of the blue hedgehog for the best part of two decades. It goes a little something like this: First information released on new game. Screenshots and release date emerge. Critics slam title and even the most die hard of fans feel disappointed. Sega have been unable to break this (with the exception of the Adventure games and Generations to an extent). But when Sonic Mania was announced in 2016, there was new hope as the cycle started all over again. Coming off the back of the Sonic Boom titles on Nintendo formats, ... Read More »

Enter Infinite. Not much is currently known about Infinite, other than he hates Sonic, he's more powerful than Sonic, he's formed a super league of evil with Eggman, Chaos, Metal Sonic, Shadow and more, and he's taken the title from Shadow as the edgiest Sonic character in existence. Sonic Forces is the latest Sonic game to fuse 2-D and 3-D platforming, much in the same way Sonic Generations did. ... Read More »

Sega are a company who survived a long period of extreme financial turmoil in the late 90's and early 2000's. However, in a recent Road to 2020 business presentation, it seems the organisation may well be looking to resurrect some of their past IP's as they look to the future. More recently, Sega have seen much more success with titles such as Total War: Warhammer and Persona 5 both going on to sell in their millions. But the business document brings to light their scope to develop 'global hits' along with the 'revival of past IP's and active utilisation of ... Read More »
