The problem with the Sonic Cycle these days—the experience of getting excited by the hype for a Sonic games before playing the mediocre game that Sega then delivers—is that recent Sonic games have been pretty good. Sonic Colors. Sonic Generations. People like those games and aren't embarrassed to admit it.

Still, any new trailer for any new Sonic game inspires hesitation.

Here we've got a new hype trailer for November's Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and, sure, it's still borrowing heavily from Mario Kart (and Diddy Kong Racing), but a) that's not a bad thing and b) it looks fun.

Are you brave enough to get excited for this game?
