And yet this is nothing new, either. SEGA is always pushing conflicting gameplay styles into a single box in nearly every mainline Sonic title, dating back to Sonic Adventure 2. Sonic '06 with its nine characters; Unleashed with the werehog, even Colors was half sidescroller. It's like they just don't have enough confidence in their core mechanics to make a game with one central gameplay mechanic.

I feel like Sonic Team thinks they can get away with it now because "IT'S LITERALLY SONIC", but classic and modern are still two completely different formulas, even if they're thematically similar. The third character at least links with the boost gameplay in some fashion.
