If you ask me, they should devote a button to simply crouching, the equivalent of D-DOWN's function in older platforms. The Z button on Gamecube would be great for that sort of thing. Pressing it while standing still makes Sonic crouch, pressing it while running rolls him into a ball, and crouching while tapping A charges the spin dash. The old control scheme had more of an "oomph" to it than simply hitting B to launch forward. It's not THAT hard to reimagine it in 3D.

Genius.

Why don't you go work for Sega? I'm sure you'd be the best game designer there.

Agreed. They need to put back in the old simple control scheme and get rid of all these stupid control gimmicks.

That stupid, lame dash was kept since Sonic 3d. I mean, what happened to the revs.
As for light dash, it didn't make sense. Maybe as a shield only move like in S3K it would be better.
Sonic is simply about spinning and speed, not all these stunts like grinding and flips that turned Adventure 2 into a Tony Hawks session.

The grinding and flips were the best things the 3-D sonic ever introduced.

I'm fine about the grinding, it's just that slowmo stupid somersault that kills me. I think the moves and the physics were perfect on Sonic Adventure 1. Sonic could spin dash when he wanted with no cost of speed, a jump in high speed while going up a ramp, ladder or mountain would send you zooming upwards, everything very faithful with the original ones if you ask me.

I enjoyed grinding in moderation when it wasn't over bottomless pits.

Yeah. Bottomless pits are evil. But I didn't have ALL that problem with the grinding. The main problem was every time blindfolded Knuckles tried to punch a robot and ended up punching the air, going for certain doom.

It was like a faster spin dash without the attack ability. It looked pretty, but was kinda pointless, if memory serves

They should take away the homing attack too, what happened to the orgasmic feeling of when you got a well aimed hit on an enemy that was unaided by any gimmicks?

What happened to that is that jumping around normally in 3-D is a bitch. Trying to hit moving targets while jumping around at high speed would be fucking impossible.

Geez, seriously. Have you tried playing Sonic Adventure 1 or 2 without using the homing attack? That = super slow gameplay.

Ah, then you'll like Retro-Sonic and Sonic Forever then.

I am not sure. Maybe you should consult 1up.com or another respected publication for more information on Retro-Sonic or Sonic Forever.
