In my review of Sonic Frontiers, I said it “is not what I ever expected for Sonic the Hedgehog. Sega pulled a risky bet by throwing the book at the wall and seeing what sticks, but that move seemed to pay off. Please make no mistake; Sonic Frontiers is a fresh take on a series that has tried everything; it’s a Sonic 3D title with impeccable handling and mechanics. While the story may not resonate with everyone, I enjoyed it. It does so many things right that the problems, especially around the camera, aren’t enough to spoil the experience.”
