It isn't. But it's closer than it's been for a while.

I'm going to need an mp3 of that song. And the band's name.

I guess some guys at Sega played some Super Mario Galaxy and thought "Hey, we can do the same thing..."
They couldn't.

I hate that intro song. I hate it because I work at GameStop and it plays on the store TV every 5 minutes or so.

A good 3D sonic game? 
A Wii sonic game that looks graphically better than the 360/PS3 versions of Sonic 4? 
Mind = Blown.

The homing attack... what the fuck? Everything about modern Sonic games looks almost okay to me, but then I see the homing attack and I actually feel anger. How is hitting the jump button twice (or the jump button and the homing attack button in succession) even considered an obstacle? Or fun to do?

Wow, this seems...pretty alright, actually. However, my next Wii game purchase is still gonna have to be DKC Returns.

I love that every Sonic game starts with a pre-rendered intro with horrifically shitty music.

You know, Sega, if you can't make 5 fingers look right on your malformed characters, no one would be offended if you just gave them 4.

Looks okay, better than sonic has been in a long time but, at this point sonic team. I just don't give a shit about sonic anymore. 
How about working on a new Billy Hatcher game? I'd be into that.

Sonic's new voice actor is Ezio and Chris Redfield.
By the way.

I can't play new Sonic games, because I once met somebody who had heard about a guy who had musical taste.

The game is good fun, I'm enjoying it more than the slightly lackluster & overpriced 4

No, Ryan, you are correct. That was 100% shitty ass pop punk.

The visuals and music are amazing. Controlling Sonic in 3D still looks awkward, though.

Sounded pretty much like pop punk to me. Probably a little more pop than punk, but still pop punk nonetheless.

This game has a wonderful soundtrack (barring the abysmal opening theme), and the level design gets a lot more interesting after the Tropical Resort set, but I can see how this game wouldn't be for everyone. It is somewhat remarkable that they shipped it without having you turn into a werewolf or ride in a dune buggy or something.

Looks pretty good, actually. Much better than 4, at least.
