So I finally got around to finishing this yesterday. While it's a fine game and it's certainly an improvement over the Dead Island games (from a technical standpoint), it just didn't hook me. It certainly has its moments and I love that grappling hook, however, it lacks any real charm and feels rather soulless to me. There's nothing about it that really stands out or makes it memorable.
While I like the look of Sonic Mania, it really does give off the impression that they're sorta' at a loss as to what they should do. I mean, take Generations in comparison. A celebration of both old and new, taking the best of both in putting it into one package. Mania though? We don't know what we're doing anymore, so we'll just remake the classics, get that nostalgia going.
This marks the first time I've ever finished this and a main entry title.
It was well worth pushing through and bringing myself to finish it. While parts of it haven't aged all too well, it still holds up marvellously overall and I loved it. That said, given that I knew as much as I did coming into this, some of its impact was lost on me.Not to mention its reputation, which creates a level of expectation, I don't think it could ever entirely reach. Still, definitely up there as one of the better games I've played.
