    Honestly mania kinda boring.
    I found out if you own it you can install it on Vita, but I've been too lazy since it's not very interesting.
    I wonder if it runs well.

      Cringy “le retro!!” aesthetic garbage like Mania is for trannies. All Sonic Mania banked on was nostalgia. Frontiers is actually moving the franchise forward

            well the fact that they dont use completely new stage motifs annoys me too but the levels are completely different from the original games
            first act is a combo of act 1 and 2 and and second act is a completely new thing.

            If you like the classics, it's good. Still, it's about half or so a new game with only 4 new zones-one of which is a revival of an old unreleased one- and two thirds being old zones with a remixed Act in the mix. Also, the last Zone in the game is original and waaaaaay too long. Obnoxiously long.

          Sonic fans have no choice, given how incompetent sonic team have been for the last couple of years. Even a mediocre game is seen as a win in their eyes because of how bad shit like Forces was. Either way, this is a win for Sega since it shows that people still like sonic even after their many fuckups. God I hope they just port unleashed over to PC already

        You should be demanding better from Sonic Team instead of celebrating mediocrity. When you reward someone for putting in a 7/10 effort you're going to get nothing but 7/10's in the future because you've made it clear that its enough to satisfy you.

                What the fuck kind of grading curve is this? If a game is a 5/10 that means for every thing it got right, it also got something wrong. Half of the game is a disaster. A game which is 50% shit is not “mediocre” it’s shit. If you got half the questions wrong on your math test it wouldn’t mean you were “average at math” it’d mean you needed remedial classes.

                7/10 is a middle of the road game. 5/10 is a trash fire. Anything below 5/10 is just a slightly hotter trash fire.

                SA1 (with mods) is my favourite 3D Sonic, not that that says much. I appreciate them trying to adapt momentum based gameplay to SA1&2 which I don't trust current Sonic Team to ever succeed in trying again.
                Absolutely loved the expanded Chao gardens in SA2.
                Very mixed on Unleashed. Many parts of it are not pleasant to play at all (i.e. QTE on-rail Tornado segments).

          Wrap your mind around the concept of "baby steps"

          After years of trying and failing to find a formula that REALLY works, only ever coming close with Adventure and then Unleashed, they've got something with rock solid potential. It would be retarded to expect them to suddenly ace it with this new direction. Being mad about what the game failed at is fine, but ultimately not productive or even fun. Let's instead look at what it got right, and what needs to be fixed to enhance it even more.

              They threw away the baby in the bathtub with
              Heroes (bye Adventure gameplay)
              '06 (bye Heroes gameplay)
              Unleashed (bye Adventure 2nd attempt)
              Colors (bye werehog gameplay)
              Generations (traded the werehog for classic)
              Lost World (bye boost, hello run button)
              Forces (bye run button, Gens 2nd attempt)
              Frontiers (bye classic, hello open-zone)

              Nothing is ever consistent with this franchise. Sega doesn't care to improve on 2nd attempts either, instead it gets worse.

              I agree, they're very finnicky about sticking to anything for long, due in large part to the negative feedback. When everyone shits all over the newest game they think "Well it's completely fucked, nothing to redeem here." and that's not great. A lot of those gameplay styles could have worked with some fine tuning.

              They stuck with the boost formula for a long while after Unleashed, with Generations, Colors, Forces, and even now the DNA from it is in Frontiers.

              I think if they build off what they have here, it could really be something good. But if they scrap the Open Zone/Mini Level concept for some new random shit, yeah, I won't give them the benefit of the doubt either.

                May I also add that Sonic Adventure 2 sold massively and was majority liked. They took the scumbag money route and soft-rebooted Sonic to Heroes to get the 5 year old audience instead of the teens who grew up with the franchise since 1991.

                Heroes was literally made the way it was in an attempt to appeal to fans who complained that SA1 and 2 had moved the series' presentation too far away from that in the original games.

                Yes, that was my point. Heroes went back to colorful, fantastical environments, a simpler story, and the classic act structure simply because people who grew up with the classic games thought games like SA2 had moved the series too far away from them.
                The team gameplay obviously wasn't something anyone requested, though, but I imagine Sonic Team just viewed it as a slight variation of Adventure gameplay instead of something vastly different like most fans do.

                My post didn't say anything about gameplay at all. Heroes went for team-based gameplay because Iizuka wanted as many characters playable as possible (again to try and appeal fan requests) and they thought stuffing characters into teams was the best way to achieve that.
                The series has always suffered from Iizuka trying to please as many people as possible at once instead of just designing games around a singular vision.

                you don't think that preceded him? The series has had multiple playable characters from nearly the start and the Sonic Adventure games had variety designs. As far as I remember, guns were included as a fan request and Naka wanted to have Shadow as the protagonist because it suited that direction better.

                I don't see why that matters. Multiple playable characters is fine. Iizuka's approach for Heroes was dumb. That's it.

                SA2 Battle already has every playable character that mattered. Cream was an Advance series exclusive. Everyone hated Big. So no, that's not an excuse.

                What isn't an excuse? I'm not defending Heroes, I think it sucks, I'm just explaining why the devs took the approach they did based off what they've said in the past.
                Personally the handheld Sonic games are what define the 2000s era for me. Most of the console games during that period are kinda crap in comparison.

                It matters in that you're pointing out the reason for what happened as though it's a particular fault when it's been a part of the way the franchise has been handled even prior.

                I think Heroes had novel and enjoyable gameplay. It was a bit glitchy and I remember grinding being finnicky, but the approach resulted in a vey unique entry in the series that I still like.

                It was asked why the devs dumped SA2's gameplay for that in Heroes, and I explained the devs' reasoning.
                Personally I do think it's a fault because people who wanted to play as their favorite character (like Tails, for example) wanted to do so with gameplay like in the classic games or SA1, not by having them stuck into a singular "this character is mainly used to fly while holding others" function. But I guess the devs didn't consider this.

                Iizuka's alleged inspiration for Ow The Edge was playing Jak II while hospitalised from Heroes' crunch.

                He wouldn't have played Jak II from the hospital because of Heroes development because he noted that he hadn't played that game and others because of the lack of time in the year following its release in an interview with EGM. As an aside, I'd assume Shadow the Hedgehog would have been conceptualized by around then -if not in development- which makes it harder to believe this. To top it off, apparently it was revealed that the direction of having a gun was because Sega received mail requests from fans for it to happen.

                Sega had received mail requests like that for years beforehand, it's why SA1 and 2 have have shooter sections. They ended up doing the same with Shadow simply because he seemed like the type of character who would use a gun, but with the added intention of trying to appeal to kids/teens who were into games like GTA (which is also why Shadow's game had controllable vehicles).

              lol no.
              But I like what they are doing with the lore, the story and a few good gameplay ideas that are a step in the right direction. The shit they pulled by hiring Flynn and patching things up in the last year of development greatly improved a game that was stated to be barebones and dogshit in early leaks.
              However even though it's a step in the right direction, they'll inevitably fuck it up like said.
              I hope they don't, but if they do I hope that SEGA closes Sonic Team once and for all because the way they've been handling the franchise these last 20 years has been ridiculous.

                Yeah the only stuff left was a sequel to Raiden's story and maybe a remake of the MSX games.
                Otherwise the only purpose the franchise had left was in spin-offs or DLCs for MGSV. There was basically no other direction the series could've taken.

          Sonic Team is no longer an AAA developer.

          Its AA at best, which for what the game is doing is ok enough.

          Its more inspired and trying harder than a lot AAA games out there, which is why a lot of epople are rewarding it.

          I'm 100% sure this is the best Sonic Team can do. Like, this is them trying at their hardest. It's really unfortunate. I can't see the next game having the same ammount of effort, but at least I can hope that they will at least try to get the positives from this game and make something better. Or just end the series (in spirit) soon like they did with Bomberman at this point.

          Would it kill Ian Flynn to at least give some context on the references. Yeah, I know I'd get 100% of them from playing every main game and reading both comics, but what about the new generation of audiences who know nothing? They can't even buy Heroes on Steam to know what Neo Metal is.

          At least animate some scenes of Sonic fighting Final Hazard and Neo Metal. Or show Dark Gaia tearing the planet apart to give context on why the reference is made.

            Frontiers was supposed to be the 30th anniversary game and lot of the character writing involves reflecting on the past to change in the future, especially Knuckles and Tails's stories which do at least have cut-ins to give minimal context
            I wouldn't expect the references to be laid on so thick that EVERYTHING gets related back to older games in any future games written by Flynn. He likes his cheeky call-backs but in any setting where half the cutscenes aren't just Sonic & friends wondering about what's going on with the cryptic ancient ruins they shouldn't have to fall back on that.

              It seems the cut-ins were a last minute addition to the game. 90% of the cutscenes are just talking heads. At least a glossary or I dunno, a boss fight cyberspace DLC challenging old foes with Super Sonic would've been a save.

                You don't have to go past 066 if you want to talk about the events being undone. If we're using the spin-offs where no major elements would reasonably carry over, fine: In TSR, there's a reference to Silver in cross-talk between him and Sonic to his mannerisms in 06, which Silver says he doesn't remember. This makes 06 a game whose events are recognized by way of Sonic's direct recollection. Additionally, of all Sonic games, 06 is pretty much the only one that is distinctly associated with Silver. He's not prominent or given top billing elsewhere after that.

                Because that's not the "'06 Silver" anymore. That's the one from a Rivals2's timeline. Only Elise and Sonic may remember bits of '06, that's true. The one in Forces is still the one from Rivals.

                I just put the filter to less than an hour played and the reviews are MIXED within that range, with both negative and positive reviews. You're talking BS. The most recent review is .3 hours from someone talking down people who play the game and calling it horrible. Another popped up as I typed this where it was reviewed negatively for being capped at 60 fps and not having ultrawide.

                They're 67% positive. The $60 barrier to reviewing automatically makes positive review bombs more common than negative ones.

                Why didn't the Sonic fans review bomb Forces then? It even had the Classic Sonic and OC maker that they were always wishing for.

                They did, look at Sonic Forces' reviews on its release date and there are twice as many positive reviews. Frontiers is too new to sort by date range, but I'm positive you'll get a similar result.

        Depending on what you're looking for in a Sonic game, Lost World may be worth a try. It's an attempt at trying to look at the stoppage that comes from running into walls in older Sonic games and coming up with a way to overcome that, which resulted in the options provided in the game. Hitting the wall doesn't kill momentum and instead provides another avenue to keep moving. I thought it was quite enjoyable take a look into if it would suit your tastes.

          I’ve figured a way to cheese the mini game by just keeping the pinball bumpers up. I don’t know how it works but I ended up beating it twice doing that.

            I am genuinely surprised it's such a large score though. This is meant to be a game for kids, having such a tedious filter point seems stupid. I mean 1 million or 500k I could see as reasonable but 5 million is far too much. Even if I didn't get fucked by it that's still a pretty big oversight.

              It wouldn't be such a problem if it was something closer to the Adventure 1 pinball tables. You need a faster way to get score. For a pinball table its lacking in a lot of intractables to score points off.

                I got it first try without losing a ball, but it was slow and boring. Even with the multipliers it takes too long. If they are gonna do a pinball table it needs to be a fully fleshed out table. The one in Frontiers is laughably half-baked.

            It somehow makes the mini game a lot easier. When I did it, the ball never fell into the middle, it would just bounce somewhere else. It also kept the ball’s momentum steady, If I’m remembering right. The only thing you would have to worry about then is the ball hitting the bumpers and falling from the sides.

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          I think people are just getting filtered by bad luck. There's nothing you can really do to avoid the ball going out the sides when it happens, and whether or not it does is going to be determined by randomness when bouncing between the two bumpers just above it.

      I'm still waiting to hear about people's legit experiences on Switch overall after they finish the game and go through all the islands. It looks really good at the start and the framerate seems very, very steady as well, but I wonder if there are places where the IQ gets worse or the resolution dips. There was a guy who mentioned that the game started causing his Switch to really start working hard in handheld mode at the end fight, but otherwise, I haven't seen too many impressions beyond that.

        I'm playing it on Switch in dockmode only, 1080p monitor. It runs fine at 30fps, no dips. Tried it in handheld mode for 30 minutes, it's straining to the eyes looking for kokos that spawn 20 feet in front of you at night.

          Yeah, I can imagine. A more detailed and object dense world, pop-in or not, on a small screen would likely be a strain, especially if you're actively looking for something that isn't large or on the horizon. Does the game stay visually consistent in terms of sharpness?

          • 3 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            So far on docked mode yes. The pop-in is the main concern, it's bad on the second island. Loading times are quick. Never tried motion controls on it, so I haven't tried. There's no input delay so that's good.

            The switch version ain't so bad. But if you're keeping it forever, buy the PC version and wait for the mod community to do it's thing.

              Thanks for the helpful perspective. I've heard that pop-in is pretty much the same across the board, but I suspect the Switch's vegetation probably gets more of it than other versions if other versions face it at all. Hope you've been having fun, anon.

        There are some pretty bad graphical glitches during the fishing minigame. The water was fucking up so bad it looked like it was corrupted. Draw distance and shadows are terrible but that's just the Switch being the Switch. Nothing too horrendous like crashes or inexcusably low framerates.

      Because letting your media rest is risky and highly likely to lead to its death. 90s they got away with it by having comic life lines and ending the Genesis era on a high note.

      HP has been pumping out equals/prequels/spin offs and games even if they aren't related to Harry himself. Sonic is trapped as being a platformer in an age where pure platformers are on life support and the IP is mostly old fag momentum.

      Zoomies have no frame of reference. If you were here when gaming was still new, you know all the ups and downs it can take. You can spot how many new features were added in sequels, you can see the effort that went into improving and using tech as it evolved...
      For zoomies they just started getting into this when graphics were already shiny, when everything was riddled with lootboxes so they have no perspective of how much they are getting ripped off, of how lazy developers are being. Add this to the fact they mostly have nowhere else in life to fall back on because they're programmed to hate their families and have no religion and you can see why their standards are so low and they are so desperate to have their games validated.
      It's like how kids are now growing up in a World where trannies are a common topic and racism is a real word. They have no clue that all these western countries were 98% White just a few decades ago, that inter-racial marriage was a sacrilege, that at 14 you could get a job pilling rocks and have enough money in less than 2 years to fully buy a 3 bedroom house and easily support an entire family on your own with a 9 to 5 without wasting decades on useless college degrees or licenses or whatever..

      5/10. completely average. Its a good foundation for the future but the game is not a complete package and feels like a tech demo. You might have fun with it but it needs a lot of work.

      I would say its on one level with Generations.

      Mostly good with some jank/bad parts here and there which stop the thing from being truly great. People keep saying "if they iron things out and use this as a foundation for a similar sequel it could be great" but we are talking about Sonic Team here so i have my doubts the jank will ever go away.
      This is probably as good as 3D Sonic can possibly get nowadays.

      It's the best 3D Sonic since Generations. And the first game since the Adventure series with great 3D platforming. My only complaint is that they're still reusing Generations assets. Those stages are the weakest part of the game.

        Leveling up ring capacity is also stupid because you want to get to max ASAP for speed boosts.

        Ring capacity doesn't increase the amount you need to hit super speed, so it allows you to get hit without losing it.

      Anyways. As someone that likes both classic and Adventure era. I am happy about Frontiers' success but I am skeptical that Sonic Team will learn from what worked with Frontiers. I hope they do, but I doubt it.

        no they wont learn shit. they didnt learn anything from forces, sonic doesnt control well in 2d for some mysterious reason. the cyberspace stages are as short as 30 seconds sometimes.
        the homing attack has a huge delay for the sole reason of making it feel bad to use, and it feels like you cant move until you waste your double jump which makes your horizontal speed double for some reason. but also, we lose all speed when jumping off the ground????

        spamming the spindash in the sa1 hubs and jumping off ramps felt better than anything forces or frontiers had to offer.

    I feel like I'm slowly becoming less of a normal fag and more of a contrarian because everyone is loving the new GOW and I didn't care for it much but I'm loving the shit out of Frontiers but this is the game that's getting shit.

    I honestly don't get it. GOW isn't fun but Sonic is. am I the one who is in the wrong here?

    Okay be honest with me
    I like SA1 and 2, have grinding a lot of A ranks in 2 but not all, that's how much I enjoyed it
    Will I enjoy this?
    Boost formula seems way more on rails than SA2, despite that being kinda "hallway-ish"

      Did you like pushing the physics to get more speed out of sonic/shadow? Boosting up cliffs and off rails gets you something similar in Frontiers, letting you sequence break tons of the overworld puzzles.

    Sonic is one of the few franchises I grew out of.
    I haven't played a Pokemon game since SM, but I still follow the games and hope they get better again. But Sonic completely lost its appeal to me. They could make the best game ever and I still wouldn't care.

      The drop dash colliding into enemies throws them into the air, you can turn around and combo into another attack with it too. Useful for the ones with a shield.

        Play Sonic Battle. Then you're ready.

        start with games like sonic adventure then your work way to sonic frontiers once you feel like you've familiarized enough with sonic games

        frontiers barely plays like a sonic game, do whatever you want
        the good sonic games are 2, 3 air, adventure 1 and 2, and generations. these games are so fucking good that we tolerate the piles of shit they throw at us just incase its as fun as those.

        I'll try 3AIR, Adventure and Battle for starters, thanks anons
        Is the steam version of Adventure alright or should I go for the OG?

      There's a few good starting points. You can start with the classic games and then play the Adventure games, skip a few bad entries and then get to Frontiers.
      Or you can start from Generations and then play Frontiers right after.

      Steam version is fucked. There's ways to fix it though, I think Cybershell made an autistic video about it. But if you can, play the original Dreamcast version, but if you got the will to mod it and fix up all the problems with the Steam version, you can. Sadly you can't do the same for Adventure 2 iirc, so get the Dreamcast version of Adventure 2.

        Adventure 2 isn't nearly as fucked. Install the SFX audio cut and it's much closer to the original and QoL mods like the buffed radar are all built for it.
