A few months ago I ended my Sonic Mania review by saying that, yes, the rumours were true: Sonic is good again. But Sonic Forces, a new game developed by Segas in-house Sonic Team, sends the blue hedgehog spinning back to those darkest of days when Sonic was, in fact, not good. If you loved the purity and precision of Mania and were glad to see the back of the likes of Vector the Crocodile and Charmy Bee, and were content never to hear Sonic speak again, brace yourself for some high-velocity disappointment.
Forces kicks things off with Sonics surprise defeat at the hands of his nemesis Eggman and a motley crew of returning series villains including Chaos, Metal Sonic, Shadow the Hedgehog, and a mysterious new heel called Infinite. With Sonic captured and held prisoner aboard the Death Egg (I cant believe Im writing this), Eggman and his robot army are free to conquer the world.
