i don't get the hate for sonic chronicles. it was an rpg OF COURSE it couldn't be as fast paced as a platformer.
What sonic chronicle DID WELL was tell a great story and have a fun battle system. and frankly unless we got a game like super paper mario (action rpg platformer) there was no way a sonic rpg could be as fast as a platformer.
AND FRANKLY i'm SICK of sonic fans acting like sonic is ONLY about pure speed. in sonic one you couldn't even go very fast. and EVERY sonic game on sega genesis had sections of the map where you HAD to slow down and make PRECISSION based jumps.
sonic shouldn't only be about speed anyone claiming otherwise is claiming sonic 1 sonic 2 sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles sucked.
1. The story was awful 2. The battle system was busted 3. In the Genesis games you could absolutely go fast at the precise parts if you were sufficiently skilled. That's part of what made them so good. Look up some Sonic speedruns. 4. I, at least, would never claim that Sonic has to be purely about speed--I thought Sonic Battle was actually pretty fun. But Sonic Chronicles was garbage.
If anyone can make a successful Sonic RPG it would be Square Enix. I say: YES! --- Currently playing: Legend of Zelda: OOA (3DS), Fire Emblem Awakening (3DS), Simpsons Tapped Out (iOS) http://backloggery.com/WickedSickJosh
