Sonic Frontiers is a game where you run around wide-open areas, defeating enemies and collecting items. The movement and combat are varied and have a nice bit of depth to them. Occasionally, if you follow your Mag's radar, you may find a cocoon, which lets you enter a cyberspace challenge. Completing these gives you more points to invest into your combat abilities, preparing you for the fight against Eggman's newest creation, Dark Falz. Even so, the actual meaningful content is pretty limited. I found myself running around aimlessly, defeating whatever enemies were in my way, and collecting whatever items I spotted. The "battle power" metric locks you out of a lot of content, even if it feels like you'd be perfectly capable if you weren't gated by it. If Sonic Team got a chance to keep working on this one a bit longer before release, maybe these problems could've been avoided, though I doubt it.

...What do you mean this isn't Sonic Frontiers--

NGS is a game that very much so is still improving. At the start it was rocky and heading into a direction that seemed abysmal. I never give up on the game since I adore its combat and character creation. Its story (especially compared to base game) is by no means good. Its super basic and at the moment seems to be leading nowhere. Hell even now as I type this, SEGA's decisions in terms of balancing a F2P experience with Premium is a nightmare. Its very daunting at first but I swear there is a good game underneath the glaring problems. I love it a lot, and I couldn't recommend it enough.

Absolute disaster that only modern Sega could put out. Add insult to injury, instead of just making a terrible sequel, they built it on TOP of an actual good game and killed it in the process. This is an abomination almost comparable to Warcraft 3 Reforged.

what a giant fuck you to PSO2

Combat is kinda fun and satisfying. I'm a big "number go up" kinda guy so i enjoyed it. Rest of the game is pretty shit though.
