RIVALS2: IGN Slams Sonic Rivals 2

November 16, 2007 at 12:36 am 1 comment

Sure, it’s only one review, but if IGN’s review of Sonic Rivals 2 is any indication, SEGA and Backbone Entertainment might want to consider: a) letting Nintendo handle all Sonic-related projects from now on, b) split up considering none of their Sonic-only projects have been successful, or c) stop producing damn racing games and get back to the platformer that once was great in all of its speedy glory. They gave it a 6.5, citing horrendous gameplay, cheap-ass mini-games, short and painful boss battles, and did a double-whammy assault, claiming now that the first-game (which they panned nearly as much) is great in comparison to this one. I’ve come to give only a grain of salt to any reviewer when they pan Sonic games, because it’s still a lovable and thriving franchise that I enjoyed with Sonic Rivals. Even still, this could be hurtful to the game’s sales, as the majority of unsure, potential buyers trust the reviews highly before anything else.
