I mean seriously, it's horrible in all ways imaginable.
You know what, I'll make a checklist of the stuff that makes it so bad:
Bloody title and it only apearing for a split second: check.
Bloody Sonic with RED EYES and Blood Everywhere: check.
Blood, bloody, bloodyness, gore, moar blood: check.
Overused gore: check.
Various stuff in the game(such as save slots, characters and various options/buttons) that the original didn't have: to an extent, check.
Friend who mails you the game with a warning DON'T PLAY OR ELSE DEMONS AND BAD STUFF: check.
Big fan of the series: check.
Killer plushies: check.
And even with all of this it is still held in pretty high esteem by some. I smell a protective fanbase. It wasn't enough that Jeff has one, it apears this load of crap has one. O am just sorrily mistaken/blindsighted?
