@Paatar - More technical polish would
have made the game a little better
received critically, but its not hated
because it deviates from traditional
Sonic games. Its just mediocre game and
the technical problems just pile on an
already flawed game.

If it was a new IP, wasn't glitched at
launch, had good framrate, better
textures and etc it wouldn't be
considered a bad game. But since it
deviates from Sonic and had so many
glitches (before update) framerate
issues and etc it was considered a bad
game. The gameplay itself is pretty fun.
I actually like it. Sure it isn't great
but it isn't godawful.

It's not a great game no, but it's not
all that bad either. I've been enjoying

Already above 110k retail that's
impressive. Looks like the 50k die hard
Sanic fans and the 60k parents who
recognize the game bought it. Wonder how
many people will suffer it's wrath
