Sonic is back in all his glory!

When Sonic Frontiers was announced last year, I was worried that it would be a flop. But I'm glad I was wrong. Frontiers is the best Sonic game in years. I loved the idea of an open zone that Sonic can run around freely. The puzzles are sometimes easy and sometimes not. The boss battles are epic and are probably my favorite part of the game. Story wise it is a masterpiece. Ian Flynn did a fantastic job. Overall, Sonic Frontiers deserves 100/10.
