@XHH: Oh, no, no, no... Either version is straight-up awful. ESPECIALLY the 360/PS3 version, as it is even MORE containing with its even MORE linear, narrow pathways, medal-hunting, random townspeople talking nonsense, and quicktime events. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwDuJg-CRpo
@XHH: Oh, no. I cannot agree to that. Daytime/Modern Sonic's controls are rubbish. He handles like a car. A really screwed-up, broken, clunky car. The engine is built to have him run straight forward, setting even further into motion the concept of taking away as much control away from the player as possible. I remember back in the day when we actually played as Sonic and had the freedom to move in all directions, and it all felt very natural.
