Then, I saw the trailers and game play of Sonic Next-Gen, and I got pretty mad. The game could not be farther away from Sonic's roots. I have been waiting for this game, Sonic and the Secret Rings, for about a year now, and I must saw, it really does make up for that other game. Sonic and the Secret Rings, although completely different in controls from any other Sonic game, really does capture what Sonic is all about--speed, attitude, and strategy. @~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~@ @ 2) List @ @~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~@ 001 - Charge Jump Description: When sliding, your speed will drop, but you will jump higher.
