HIGH Chemical Plant Zone is still awesome.

LOW "That looks like a homing shot! Careful, Sonic! That looks like a homing shot! Careful, Sonic! That looks like a homing shot! Careful, Sonic!"

WTF Who's the genius that thought leaving out Launch Base Zone was a good idea?

Video: Sonic Generations official gameplay trailer

As nice as this trailer looks, it only reminds me that Sega still doesn't know what to do with Sonic the Hedgehog. Sega wants so badly to fit Sonic into a large 3D world that it has forced him into games with hover boards, wolf transformation, giant swords and even guns. Fans on the other hand just seem to be begging for more of what they grew up on—2D platforming levels.

Video: Sega teases reboot with Sonic Generations trailer

Recently it has felt like Sega has been trying to rekindle the love of its fans every year. Every year there has been a Sonic remake or a Sonic collection or a Sonic reboot or combination of the three thrown onto store shelves. Despite its failures, Sega just keeps on trying and this year, just in time for that 20th anniversary, Sega has come up with Sonic Generations. Not a lot is known about the game, but the teaser video making the rounds has sparked some discussion.

Sonic and the Secret Rings – Review

Read review of Sonic and the Secret RingsFrom its incongruous RPG-style leveling up to its endless recycling of levels to its utterly ridiculous Arabian Nights-themed story, Sonic and the Secret Rings feels horribly padded from top to bottom. To top it off, the sloppy controls make the game way harder than it should be. There might be a serviceable game buried somewhere in here, but I don't think it's worth anyone's time to try and find it.

Sonic and the Secret Rings

Game Description: Sonic brings his trademark speed and attitude to the Wii in his first solo adventure since 1991. In Sonic and the Secret Rings, Sonic finds himself in the colorful and vibrant world of the Arabian Nights tales. There he embarks on his most outrageous journey to date through an expansive 3D world brought to life with realistic water reflections, light bloom, and lifelike physics. Sonic and the Secret Rings makes custom use of the innovative Wii remote to create a truly immersive gaming experience.
