Ever wonder what it'd be like if a Sonic Fanfic came to life, but instead of being a terrible Fanfic, it was god tier, contained original characters, and had such juicily awesome game mechanics and level design that you could truely begin to believe in love after love? (After love... After love... After love... )
I won't spoil the surprise, but suffice it to say, even without the storylines, the three main playable characters are so perfectly different in play style that each time you play through as a character, it feels like a different game. Some of the bosses that challenged you will be a breeze, some that were a breeze, become major threats. Alternate paths, character exclusive levels, Time challenge modes with special levels just to hone your speed running skills.
Did I mention an epic soundtrack? Cause yeah, they got you covered. It's not just good era style music. It's plain out, good music.
The only flaw some people have is subjective: Some people can't stand the voice acting. I for one, after playing through the game twice on adventure mode, feel that the voice acting fits each character perfectly: Even if the characters themselves may sound annoying, or even silly in some cases... it usually comes through as intended.
The one voice I will say is truely excellent, is that of the main Antagonist, and with some of his taunting near the end, I grew to love and hate hearing his voice over the intercom just as much as I loved and hated Handsome Jack.
