I apologize in advance for the little rant but it's something I have to get off my chest that's been bugging me for a few years now...
I been hearing a lot that people liked the story of Sonic Unleashed (tries hard not to laugh) but like really, what was good about it? Forget about the gameplay, I'm talking about the story itself, I'm serious what's good about it? Explain to me please.
When I think of Sonic Unleashed (Sonic World Adventure) cutscenes I think of three things:
A- A cutcene of two random characters whom nobody knows/knew/cares about (Chip and the Werehog) expressing how gay they are.
B- Some random one time useless shitty character (Professor Pickles), or two random unknown town people talking about some random event that supposedly happened in the past which nobody cares about.
C- Silly AOSTH Robotnik making a total fool out of himself in front of that stupid assist-robo thingie.
Remember that scene in Sonic Adventure where Tikal explained to Sonic and Knuckles what happened in the past? No wait, you don't, because that never happened, no, instead they actually SHOWED you how the event happened, yes a flashback, THAT'S how you tell a story, I mean come on who wants to watch an event of two random people talking about an event rather than show the event in a flashback or something? You might as well skip the cutscene and go to the next level... Oh wait, you can't, because you can't skip cutscenes in this stupid game, and even if you could it's pointless because you can't get to the next level since you don't have enough medals so you have to go back, play some of the older levels searching for useless medals, and if you were lucky you'll find 2 Sun medals after 4-5 hours worth of gameplay when you actually needed Moon medals...
So yeah, Dr Eggman now is becoming AOSTH Robotnik, goofy and idiotic American stereotype villain who's impossible to be taken seriously, Sonic now is becoming his Sonic Underground version, pathetic and always acts stupid without thinking or ever succeeding, Tails is becoming SatAM Tails, hardly ever shows up to just give you support and never ever appear again, Amy is becoming her Sonic X self, all she does is express to Sonic how much of a sick stalker she turned to be, that is if she ever appears, and don't get me started about Shadow the Emo-hog and Knuckles the 'I forgot I ever had an emerald to guard' Echidna.
I know most people will disagree with me here, but I believe what I wanna believe and everyone has an opinion, and to my opinion, Sonic The Hedgehog 2006 was the last Sonic game to ever have a decent story, before that was Shadow The Hedgehog, Sonic Adventure 2, and Sonic Adventure, I mean for f*ck's sake, even some of the games that came for the Gameboy Advance (Sonic Advance3 and Sonic Battle) had better stories than Sonic Unleashed or Sonic Colors, and I believe everyone agrees to me that Sonic Generations doesn't even count in the stories departure.
