There was a time when I’d have accepted “Sonic with a sword in a medieval styled world” as an acceptable, possibly good premise for a game. Of course, that time was long before the start of the trail of games that looks like it was left by a stampeding herd of diarrhoeic elephants. Though it’s conceivable that one might think this game looks good, the current track record makes it hard to imagine that the game will be easy or satisfying to control in another iteration of what has become the fashionable franchise to hate. Also, the juxtaposition of Sonic in a world that looks decidedly less cartoony than he does would be fine, if it hadn’t been messed up so many times before. These days, the only thought a trailer like this evokes from me is: If this is why I haven’t got VF5R on my 360, someone’s going to get stabbed.
