Sonic the Hedgehog has had a rough few years. Recent games in the series have lost the spirit and soul of the core Sonic experience, but Sonic and the Secret Rings for the Nintendo Wii may actually turn out to be good when it hits stores at the very end of February. IGN had some hands-on time with the game recently and has some new videos to show you, and from the looks of things this new game seems centered around speed, speed, and more speed. No tedious treasure hunting levels. No out-of-place mech shooter sections. No crappy friends full of angst to get in the way. I feel better already!
