I kind of like it

I know it's almost blasphemy but me and my buddy are having a Sonic marathon where we play all the 3D Sonic games and we are playing a PC torrent of Sonic 06 for the first time in nearly 2 decades and its honestly pretty fun

Now don't get me wrong it's a broken mess and the story is hilariously bad but the gameplay feels fast and fun and I like the hub world felt like the same kind of fun hub world that Adventure had the pacing isn't awful and now on PC without the fuck awful load times of the 360 I feel the main issue that made 06 so annoying to play in the first place is gone.

I mean is this really that bad to be considered "One of the worst games of all time"? feels harsh honestly

    PS3 version is horrible. It looks and runs worse than on 360.

      Yeah, I played it on PC and It fixed a lot of the problems, but the confusion is my fault for using the PS3 version for my OP pic my mad.

      The PC remake fixes it up

      Yeah the load time was the main shit I hated in 06 back when I played it on the 360. the PC version fixes that massive issue and now the game is way more fun

        Download Sonic P06. It really fixes things up. No story or hub worlds yet, though.

    What puts it into "worst of all time" territory is how broken it is. If you disconsider the whole falling through the floor thing, it's just your run of the mill Sonic shit, which if you are a Sonicfag, you'll enjoy.
    The music is really good.

      Start with the classics if you want some of the best 2D platformers ever made, or Adventure 1 and 2 if you want something a bit more shonen-esque and prefer 3D environments. Generations is a good place to get started as well, since it contains some of the most memorable zones of Sonic’s history along with being the best designed boost game.

      Even back then it wasn't even close to being the worst game ever. It was just a let down because Sonic fandom hits hard at the right spergy age and they released 06 just unfinished. Buggy like a beta version with rough load times that you would see often from glitching through a floor into doom. But it at least had the parts of a decent game just not done. Not even the worst Sonic game.

      Just emulate all of them if you want. 1-3 and SNK are fine. CD is sort of meh. Mania is good. Sonic Riders 1 and 2 are short but fun. Sonic Adventure games are flawed but fun enough for kids. Advance games are alright. Spinball is okay but gets tedious unless you are really into pinball. Just remember if its a Gen 6 game play it on the Dreamcast because if it was ported after the Dreamcast died the ports are buggier.

      Here you go anon. A chart of sonic games worth playing and the best way to play them (dont get better sadx though, its heavily outdated. Use the mod loader speepshighway and mainmemory. It already comes bundled with all the mods that make the game play like the dreamcast version).

    You didn't get to the Silver campaign obviously.
    And you said it yourself, you're ignoring the load times responsible for most of the hate.
    Like how Too Human got trashed endlessly for the stupid long death animation

      Is Silver really bad? I'm still in Sonic's campaign and yes fixing the load time bumped up the games quality drastically

    It's weird how 06 looks graphically worse on PS3 than on 360. For example, the trees, lampposts and chairs on Soleanna don't have any shadows on PS3. The water on Kingdom Valley and glass on Crisis City also look worse.

      Also, the gondolas in Soleanna were removed on PS3 version. Why?

    This game has the occasional fun stage design but it's very obviously unfinished. It's not even conventionally bad, the game is just straight up not fucking done.

    I do think 06 was an improvement over the previous game from that director : Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg. I got more entertainment out of playing 06.

    A decade ago, yes. it was shat on and reviled for many reasons, but the biggest offender was the fact that it was unfinished and rushed out the door to meet deadlines. At the time putting out a buggy mess that's blatantly unfinished seemed so ridiculous because it was a rarity and games were to come fully complete with no bugs.

    Fast forward to today and you have shit like Battlefield 2042, Cyberpunk, and Fallout 76. Sonic 06 was actually ahead of the curve in terms of AAA companies delivering shitty products, and that's why people are warming up to it. By today's standards, Sonic 06 hardly looks bad because if AAA companies can get away with releasing unfinished shit, then Sonic Team gets a pass

    06 is far better than Colors-present.

    Then you didn't play the original version, you played the unofficial fan remake of 06. While, it's ok, who gives a shit, it's also a false narrative of the original initial reaction to the cancerous (if it wasn't Sonic it would have killed this IP) buggy and just overall a waste of time video game.

    Sonic '06 is really good, and I'm tired of pretending it's not.
