You can tell the target audience for this game by the models for the Papercraft section of the official website. >_>

So, and specualtions about the "Cool plot twist" mentioned? I think it's that Dr. Robotnik is the Dark Knight prehaps, that'd be awesome.

My bet is that the Black Knight isn't really Arthur, and Sonic's sword is. Or something.

i'm still going to be over here, suspicious

Considering buying this. Which inevitably means I won't, like every other game I say, "Hmm..." to.

edit: oh, and there's still the matter of what Silver is up to. The papercrafts thing seems to imply he'll appear, but maybe it's just a, "what if" thing.

I imported it, and beat it, it is so awesome, and superior to SU in every way concivable, and is up there in the SA ranks, IMO.

Somehow, I doubt that.

Your opinion has been noted, however.

I will probably have to rent it, due to being dirt poor.

Bought it. Decent so far.

It is technically "on-rails", but it's much better than Secret Rings' on-rails system.

also, I like the bonus features. The fanart is actually pretty cool.

Did they fix backing up? That really drove me bonkers in SATSR.

It seems to work the same way, unfortunately. So, your only choice is to jump backwards instead of walking backwards.

There's no, "DON'T SMASH POTS" missions yet, though, which helps a bit.

Heh. Well, I wouldn't call it better than Sonic Unleashed then; you can actually BACK UP in that game to an extent.

I won't bother getting this. I don't think I would (or anyone else I live with) like it.

Why not? Story might suck, but, if the gameplay is good, well... who cares?

IGN gave it a 3.9. :( Not that it really matters whether I'm gonna play it or not.

Plot is pretty good.

When the first credits play, the game is NOT over, by the way. There's more after. Not sure about the second credits, though.

Spoilers about Black Knight:
[spoiler]Also, I was somewhat right: the Black Knight isn'ta ctually Arthur. In fact, the true Arthur...is actually Sonic.

Also, didn't see that twist with Merlina coming.[/spoiler]
