I feel like I’m the only one who wishes Sonic Forces took a striking new art direction to go with its strange direction. Instead its the default models (or very similar) we’ve seen since 2008 and Sonic Unleashed.
Well, while I personally wouldn’t be against that, considering that so much of the fan base at large reacted so negatively (for some reason) to the changes in art direction for Sonic Boom, I can understand why Sega might choose not to do this with Sonic Forces.
