    1. Forces was the definition of mediocre, and underwhelming. Is it the worst Sonic game in the series? Absolutely not. But it’s also nowhere near being good.

      The plot could have been good, but bad dialogue (“I’m an optimist, but I’m also a realist.”), inconsistent elements (Sonic has been tortured for 6 months yet seems as chipper and energetic as always), and complete ruination of certain characters (Tails’ portrayal as a useless coward in this game just makes me angry) just wreck it. Not to mention Classic Sonic being pulled in for no real reason- forget Tails’ “it’s like the world knows it needs a Sonic” line.

      Infinite could have been a great villain but his background was totally botched (“Waaaah! Shadow beat me in a fight! Waaaahh!”); at least his powers were interesting, although they’re more augmented reality while they’re erroneously called virtual reality. I’d like to see him get a second chance in the future

      The levels, if you can call them that, were straightaways with little deviation or alternate paths to take or explore. I could mockingly call the game “Sonic Hallways” and I’d only barely be exaggerating.

      1. Being beaten by another worked for Freeza’s long term development. With a name like Infinite, they should have fleshed his backstory out to include coming from a similar powerful bloodline (not nearly as powerful as Freeza’s obviously, lol), so the fact someone was able to beat him would explain why he’s so upset by his defeat at Shadow’s hands. Also, he’s a jackal which brings The Omen to my mind.

        I feel another thing that damaged Infinite was the fact he just vanishes near the end of the game when the Phantom Ruby absorbed him & his ruby prototype. He should have returned later on when it’s revealed the real Phantom Ruby actually bonded itself to him, giving him complete control over it’s power, and promptly turned on Eggman.

        Still, with all it’s faults, I enjoyed Infinite & Sonic Forces. It goes nicely with my enjoyment of the Shadow the Hedgehog game from way back.
