I knew, RIGHT from the beginning, there would be nothing substantial in this games story. That, and that this game would be proof that Sonic team doesn't know what the crap to do with this franchise anymore.
To think people thought those color coded clichés, honestly only par with the nonsense of Solaris/Mephiles in terms of stupid villians, would actually make this shit dark and edgy because made references to death and dying.
It adds so much depth and complexity to the dumb cartoon.
The deadly six were pretty one note.
They have one theme and everything they said is in that one note.
The fat one is always hungry and talking about sandwiches, the girl is a girl so she constnatly needs compliments andm ake up, the goth is emo so likes things that are depressing, etcetera.
Zavok the leader is the only one with depth, if extremely generic "I will destroy the world beause I'm angry" is depth to you. He's the only one at least interacting with others instead of just spouting catchphrases.
