I'd have to agree, although the only ones Ive ever played were for the genesis. I guess you can kind of tell the newer ones suck.

The side-scrolling GBA Sonics are better than any 3D Sonic ever.
August 2nd, 2006

meh, the sonic advance games should be put in front of all the 3d ones IMO, disregarding the pinbll one or course

Why does everyone hate Sonic Adventure? D:
December 15th, 2007
(0)
probably because it had a ton of glitches, I mean it WAS a launch title for dreamcast. The really unfortunate thing is that SEGA never took the time to fix the glitches in SA2 or any other 3D sonic game. They either kept the glitches or added more :P
August 2nd, 2006

XD IT WORKS! *shakes youe hand*
August 2nd, 2006
(0)
haha, nice. I don't know if the Sonic Advance games are worse than the Sonic Adventure/Heroes games, but still great. Good twist on the original fad.
August 2nd, 2006
(0)
Agree'd
August 2nd, 2006
(0)
Admittedly, some of these games were still pretty good. I think Sonic Adventure 2 was simply amazing. I think if that had been the last game no one would have begrudged Sonic Team.
August 2nd, 2006
(1)
You left out Sonic Rush, that was good...
August 2nd, 2006

It's sad but true.
August 2nd, 2006

I played a demo of Sonic Heroes for the PC. It's hard to like a 3D game when it feels like I'm on rails, but at least it looked DAMN good. Sonic 3 and Knuckles, on the other hand, is perfect in countless ways.
August 2nd, 2006

FOR THE WIN! My sentiments exactly.
August 2nd, 2006

tru.dat heros was sh*t.

get rid of grey line on eknuckles for 5.
August 2nd, 2006

Oh, and btw. Sonic Adventure 2 was good when you were Sonic and Shadow. Knuckles and Rouge levels were ok. Tails and Robotnik were terrible and didn't even belong in the game.
August 2nd, 2006

That was sweet.
August 2nd, 2006

Ha ha ha. This is made of win. Sadly, it's true.

Sonic Battle was a good game

Total Freaken Accuracy. Also, don't worry Stu22. You didn't miss much. Sonic Rush was just like the sonic Advanced games Except with horrible Audio and the same 2 bad guys just thrown randomly into poorly designed levels. That's what Naka gets for firing Yasuhara.
August 2nd, 2006

4'd for truth.
August 2nd, 2006

On a side note, for chronology's sake (and also truth), you should swap Sonic Shuffle and Sonic Heroes places around.

Shadow is acually underated, its acually pritty fun if you go past the frigging nutrual path.

so true. however this will probably help start a fad, so crap.
August 2nd, 2006

Sonic Advance is better than Sonic Heroes, insofar as it's actually a sonic game and not a 3D disasterpiece. On a related note, I just realized that I'm a loser.

He might not have added Sonic Rush because it was actually pretty decent, except for the tedious boss battles and retro SFX, the music is catchy and the levels are...well, a rush.

The Sonic Advance games weren't that bad, especially not as bad as Sonic Heroes and SA2.
August 2nd, 2006

Sonic Adventure 1 = Dreamcast. This makes a game great. (Mainly because they thought that they wouldn't actually sell any of the game if it was crap. (Unlike playstation games.))
August 2nd, 2006

August 3rd, 2006
(0)
How many of you have actually played the newer games? Hmm?
August 3rd, 2006

-2 because you stole the idea from SA

I don't agree with all of those, but its still funny.

i'll pretty much have to agree with that.

The Sonic Advance games were great, as was Sonic Rush, and both Sonic the Hedgehog (360) and Sonic Wildfire (Wii) look awesome, however, on the rest, I agree with you. *Sonic fanboy... sadly*
August 4th, 2006
(0)
So damn true ;_; I hope Sonic Wild Fire (Wii) and Sonic the Hedgehog (360/PS3) change this sad trend.
August 4th, 2006

I've played like 95% of them and I would put them in the same f*cking order.
August 4th, 2006

sonic adventure : sonic games :: mario 64 : mario games why couldn't they have just continued to do the whole "sonic games in 3D" approach instead of trying to make completely diffent games and sell them with name recognition =/ oh and those game boy games were horrible because the sprites sucked. seriously... they should've used the ones from sonic 3. knuckles looks like a 5 year old for crying out loud.
(0)
lifespan fad?
August 4th, 2006

Sonic Rush was actually pretty good. Better than the New Super Mario Bros.
August 4th, 2006
(0)
-2 because Sonic Shuffle was fun
August 4th, 2006
(0)
^Shuffle sucked. GTFO. Also, I have to admit, I actually enjoyed Heroes. C'mon, it wasn't too sucktacular... it was better than Adventure 2... they DID improve the camera a little... Also, consider this: Shadow and Riders, as well as the sucktacular-looking Rivals, were all made by NOT Sonic Team, but United Game Artists, AKA Sonic Team America. These people are idiots. They don't know a game from their *sshole, really. Thus, they made Shadow and Riders.

August 4th, 2006
(0)
Well, you can't go wrong with muppets. But SA1 & 2 were the best in the franchise, imo. Also, I dunno if you can call it the "lifespan" of sonic games, the games aren't in order of release. but it got a chuckle out of me anyway. :)
August 4th, 2006
(0)
I have to agree. SA2 wasn't bad, but everything after is exploited crap. By the time Shadow has his own game...he's definitely not the guy he originally was. Now he's all "ZOMG MOTORCYCLE GUNS BEER WOMEN DARKNESS ETC!"

I remember when amiga and pc gaming magazines speculated about the first textured 3d games ever, showing sonic in 3d as an example.
(0)
Hell I just got riders and it's alright. Alot better than F-Zero GX.
August 13th, 2006
(0)
heroes and shadow were insanely bad! And screw you NewAgeRetroGeekOfChaoticPeace, F-Zero GX f*cking owned
August 13th, 2006
(0)
Agreed!
August 13th, 2006
(0)
Awesome. But I would've ranked Riders and Battle higher, they really weren't that bad. Shadow should've been at the bottom.
August 14th, 2006
(0)
Sonic Battle is good. The advance ones werent all that bad I never played riders but allt he other ones I played I didn't think they were TOO terrible. besides mabye shadow and heroes. but seriously I didnt know WHAT the hell was going on in Shadow
August 14th, 2006

5 for truthiness.
August 14th, 2006

August 18th, 2006

I agree, but i liked SA and SA2... But yeah, they weren't as good as the originals
August 19th, 2006
(0)
I thought that SA and SA2 were barely bearable. Shadow should have been the last one. I agree with everything else though. Guys, the lifespan isn't chronological, it's in the order of great(Sonic 1) to sucky(Riders)

August 22nd, 2006

you have it out of order. Sonic Shuffle was good. Sonic Advance 3 was good. Sonic Heroes and Shadow should be on the bottom.

those sonic advance games are so much slower than the old ones. I don't get it. Oh ya, and the sprites are completely screwed up. On top of that, the controls seemed to react different. As if there was a slight delay between when I pushed the button and when the character jumped.
August 25th, 2006
(0)
oh ya and the music for sonic advance games sucked. and wtf did they have cream the retard in there for!? Sonic already has way too many characters as it is! and cream is a completely retarded choice for a playable character!

Damn it...I must be the only one in the world to have actually enjoyed Sonic Riders.....oh well. I jus couldn't stand the speech. To improve most any of the games they should just take the speech out of it. (Sonic Heros I'm pointing at you.)

Shadow game is actually good. Since I consider it more of a "These stories suck, I'm just gonna destroy everything" type of thing. I took my time and didn't do the Goodguy side of the story cuz it would have made me gag.

Sonic Advance 1 came before Heroes, and I think 2 did as well. Just a note. But aside from that, this is funny yet at the same time contains such sad truth...

Sonic Advance wasn't all that great compared to the original Genesis titles, so I'd have to agree there. Sonic Adventure 1-2 were okay, I'd agree with Sonic Heroes because although it was fun there were parts that weren't fun. Shadow was horrible, as was STH360. Yeah, Sonic keeps going downhill, and unfortunately once Sonic finally starts going uphill, he can't run that fast :P

Oh and Sonic CD, no matter how many people love that game, SUCKS in my opinion. Why everyone enjoys a game where you constantly stop playing every few seconds during a stage to travel through time is beyond me. Ironic how people complained about having to stop in Sonic Heroes all the time but at the same time LOVE Sonic CD.
