    I never thought Sonic transitioned well away from side-scrolling. There have been many good side-scrollers over recent years showing that it's still a popular genre.

    But the trailers here suggest that the first game is just a re-release with low-quality graphics and framerates and the latter isn't a side-scroller.

    I'd love to see an up-to-date side-scrolling version of Sonic. Otherwise, it needs to be parkour style like Mirrors Edge or something. I felt that was the first "3D" platformer that got it right.

    Well that's what Sonic Mania is. After watching Super Bunnyhops video about it, I have a bit of hope about it. Why? its made by the teams that made the excellent mobile ports. They are long time fans that started off in the fan game community. Its not made by Sonic Team or DIMPS, ie the people who have been ruining Sonic for so long. It's classic Sonic.

    I have to say Sega are one company that gets a big thumbs up. Lately they haven't been biased towards console releases and don't seem hell bent on telling you how things should be. They get on and make games that you either like or don't.
    Although very happy about the 2D release of Sonic. I'd like to see some more games from Sega in the style of Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit. I thought this was a great little modern side scroller.
