This review may contain some minor spoilers to the first part of the game but I'll try not to ruin too much.
I was very worried about Sonic Frontiers. I was thinking that it was going to be a lame rehash of 2017's Sonic Forces. Poor Sonic can't get a break these days with being the butt of the internet jokes about how bad his modern games have been lately. We've had lame games the past decade. Some have been a hit or miss. I liked Sonic Lost World despite everyone hating on it for whatever reason. Then the Blue Blur got redesigned for those dodgy Sonic Boom games back in 2014. What the heck was that all about. While Sonic Mania from 2017 was a love letter to the 2D era fans, Sonic Frontiers seems like a love letter to the Adventure Era fans.

For me it's just a joy to play something different and unique for Sonic that has never been done before. In the open world Island areas you run around in, you eventually discover a lot of these scary looking giant robots. They are called Titans. There are different types of Titans. I remember the Titans. There are, for example, Ninja, Squid, Tower and Asura, a large Titan that you run up to and hit him on the head to kill. I found the Titans to be quite scary. I think I was most terrified of the Tower Titan. I was hitting him for a while and I said 'wow that was easy.' then he starts chasing me around the place and shoots at me from all angles. I spoke too soon.
