I really want to hype this game but I'm scared of going back into the Sonic cycle...

Former something....

I know it means powerups, but all the wisp stuff seems a little confusing right now. Can't wait to play this.

 Been away for a bit, but sneaking back in.

Gaming on: PS4, PC, 3DS. Got a Switch! Mainly to play Smash

Im interested, but I am not going to get my hopes up.

Wait, this sounds like a Sonic game with only the good parts? Something's wrong here.

I am cautiously pessimistic about this game.

I was reading about this game in the latest issue of Nintendo Power, and I have to say this is looking really good so far. I'm interested in getting both the Wii and DS versions of this game.

Sounds cool, but Im a little dissapointed its only on the wii to be honest. I have yet to see anything motion controls add to a sonic game other than anoyance...

It has potential...

Nice now what's the gimmick in this game?  The power ups?
If so Sonic in 3-D with a _____ power up

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!
