Obviously, people failed to mention the crap you had to do to get to the action, and once you got there, you soon realized there was very little platforming involved. This was the point where I'd thought that Sonic had jumped the shark.
I think Sonic really jumped the shark with Sonic 2006. Sonic Adventure was very rough around the edges, but at least it laid the ground for Sonic Adventure 2, which was great for the most part.

Fortunately, as of late, it seems Sonic games are getting pretty good. Colours was enjoyable and Generations looks excellent so far.

Interestingly, Sonic Adventure has a lot of platforming compared to recent Sonic games, but the controls and camera are far too imprecise to handle it, especially in the later levels.
