The Cycle is Broken
New shoes or a fancy statue or even the 'promise of a new awesome game' is always nice, but the reassurance that your fans still believe in you after years of terrible games is the greatest present you could give a guy like Sonic. Reach for the Stars, Sonic. Reach for the Stars.

(Google "Sonic Cycle" if you don't get it)

Sonic Colors wasn't a bad game.
it just had bad reviewers

I think it's an amazing game that brings Sonic's reputation back from the dead.
And I don't see what's wrong with those other games. Sonic Unleashed was fun. Sonic and the Black Knight was heart warming, and funny at some parts. But I have to admit, Sonic and the Secret Rings WAS a bad game :\

Like I said, those weren't bad games. (excluding SatSR)
They just had bad reviewers.

The only complaint I have about it was that it was short, I beat it in 8 hours. That and the motion controls are awful, I played with the gamecube controller.

Great page

The only real complaint I had about it were collecting those *Insert numerous swear words here* red rings.

The only real complaint I had about the game was the fact that you had to farm points to get S rank. I mean seriously, what the ****!

...Mac? Who?

Afrohawkman, December 29th, 2010, 4:47 pm


No, Solara, I'm calling it like...the best Sonic game in years. It had pretty damn good reviewers too. Black Knight was okay, Unleashed was very much lacking. Just look at the review scores. Although Colors had like a 79 on Metacritic, it still scored a lot better than the other two.

SolaratheHedgehog, December 29th, 2010, 9:24 pm

Oh, I know that
I'm just saying that reviews still have the GUTS to call this game a bad game :\

Just got it today...
It's Unleashed Day Stages, but I prefer Unleashed's control scheme. Maybe it's cause I'm using Wii Remote, I'll try GC controller tomorrow. Seems short, 2 hours and I've already completed over half the game. Overrall really good, and the writing is really good, witty and funny. Too bad Sonic sounds like he's going through puberty...Tails though? I think this is Tails' best yet.
Again, only played for 2 hours so far, tomorrow I may find it to get better as I go further.

If you awk me. SONIC COLOURS AND UNLEAHED ARE ALMOST THE SAME< the difference is the night stages :3

Black Knight would have been better if they had put more time in it, I often got stuck in the 2-D levels

Roja the Hedgehog, December 30th, 2010, 6:22 pm

And me! Sonic's bad voice actor is TERRIBLE! I wish they stuck with Jason Griffith or Ryan Drummond T.T

You all just ruined this comic for me. Thanks a lot.

Supersheep64, December 31st, 2010, 10:56 am

It is a good game. But I preffer the DS version.
And apart from Sonic himself the entire voice cast seems improved over the previous ones. Still not sure about Knuckles though.

Supersheep64, December 31st, 2010, 10:58 am

I agree with the message of this comic however.

Nintendo Power gave it A 9.It's the best Sonic game we've had since 2003 (Sonic Heroes on Gamecube was Okay).I don't count Adventure DX and Adventure 2 Battle because those are remakes.And I don't count remakes.

Arc Impulse, January 3rd, 2011, 3:06 pm

Don't get me wrong! It's still a great game and now that I've beaten it, I can safely say yes, one of my favs(Haven't had this much fun on a console with Sonic since Sonic Adventure). I'll admit, it was awkward getting into it but now it seems amazing, specially final boss.
Only major complaints I still find aren't difficulty(where are the reviewers having so much trouble?), but sometimes the jump doesn't work and the game overall is quite short(I got the game 3 days ago and beat it yesterday...2 days...based on how much I played...about 4 1/2 hours to beat).

Afrohawkman, January 3rd, 2011, 3:41 pm

Don't get ME wrong, but I personally don't care about any of your complaints or how YOU saw the game. I was trying to make a statement of how I saw the Sonic series finally making a comeback through a thoughtful gesture from someone who's usually a troll, but everyone here seems to be wrapped up in their own 'small' complaints about the game that they barely even see that. I feel like everyone ignored the message of the comic and went straight to the "The game was okay" part.

And if you really want to "complain" about the difficulty, or the jumping not working, or even its length, go play the other games. If they're shorter/the same length, probably was an old school one. If they're longer, probably had multiple story lines which is why it was so long. Frankly I loved how this was short and sweet; when things get too long, it's gets easier and easier to find more and more flaws.

Shadowblade2584, January 4th, 2011, 7:45 am

I was just saying this was the best sonic game since 2003...

Roja the Hedgehog, February 19th, 2011, 10:53 am

I was just complaining...
