Check out the new TV commercial for Sonic Lost World!
Where’s the adventurous, lively lyrical theme song? Where’s the Super Sonic final boss fight with the theme song’s epic orchestra rendition? You’ve turned away from Sonic’s aging fan base and have created a “different” sonic that appeals to a younger generation… I’m not getting this game because it’s missing what made Sonic games make the player feel heroic and adventurous, not childish and goofy. I hate to see Sonic go like this. Please bring him back. The old Sonic with this type of gameplay; now there we have a winner.

@Alex, the Sonic you’re talking about is completely different from the classic SEGA Genesis age Sonic, so now we understand why those fans have been outcrying for so many years. Let’s face it: THINGS CHANGE. Guess we just gotta deal with it. Besides, Sonic Team isn’t stupid. Sonic is going to come back to the way you want him sooner or later, they just wanted to try something different.
To be honest, I would love to see a new Sonic Adventure style game, with Crush 40, and all that other great stuff. GameCube era 3D platformers need to make a brief comeback! I miss games like Super Mario Sunshine and etc, because I grew up playing them, but even if they do decide to make a new Sonic Adventure, I don’t want Sonic to stay there! Sonic Team has to try new stuff, and I think Sonic Lost World does that really well.
All that to say, they’re just trying something a little bit different. I’m sure we’ll see the return of our former Sonic sooner or later! Just enjoy Lost World for what it is, because we might never see another game like it!

Sonic, since when do you eat only the sausage of your Chili-Dogs?

I wish you would market your other great games with ads too SEGA.

I agree with Alex. Sonic Lost World was aimed for children, although ESRB rated it for 10+. That style of Sonic was not enjoyable for me (as I am a teenager). If Sonic Team make a Blue Hedgehog game with Adventure style, everyone can enjoy it.

I find the comment on him being fast ironic because in this game the speed has been sharply reduced. I won’t say that the game’s bad, but it just seems like a bit of a step backward from Colors and Generations. You had the perfect system!

Read, reflect, rinse and repeat (and do not file away and forget).
Sonic Fans Around the World
Concerning Ken Pontac: What better way to let the cat out of the bag then publicly admit that you went in blind scripting and crafting a top-level game story? A bit of perspective would have clued him in to the fact that he not only wrote a script to any children’s game, but for a game which is generally second to Mario in worldwide popularity and one which is held in high esteem by many individuals and one that should have quality standards in order to meet its expected mark of excellence. He may or may not be a great writer in the eyes of some, and in my case he is abysmal, but, regardless of the line of work or the area of expertise, a person as himself should never place his or her reputation on the line by telling everyone how he or she hardly did anything to get from point a to point b in creating a final product. Such a strategical move sets such person up for failure while everyone questions why that person ever was even needed in the first place and how seriously that person treats his or her work. In the case of Ken’s interview, he was stepped, in a way, on a minefield in crossing the fine line between being casual and careless and it may cost him his job here at Sega.
