If anyone doesn't know about Warframe, it's a 3rd person shooter in the same vain as games like Gears of War and Vanquish, though it's a lot more like the latter. You played as space ninjas all wielding guns, knifes, and other melee weapons, each one with their particular set of skills such as but not limited to, special sword attacks, freezing, poison, mind control, shocking, traps, and necromancy.
Of course, some people here will be wondering why I'm comparing this to Sonic, and that would be many of the little things you can do with the mechanics of this game.www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DTqRT…www.youtube.com/watch?v=l076x0…
Altogether you got;
Speed - Sonic in general
Swordplay and other melee weapons - Shadow and Black Knight
Parkour(Wall running) - Sonic in general, Espio's ability since Knuckles Chaotix.
Shooting - Shadow, Adventure games
Special powers - Certain Sonic characters, Shadow and Blaze most especially
Space Flight - Shadow's hand glider from 06
Invisibility - Espio
Throwing Knives - Espio
Now, I know there's other games that do things things, but not many of them have covered this many aspects Sonic has given how diverse his games are, Halo and Boarderlands being close but they aren't speedy action and above average FPS games, and Mario sure as hell doesn't even come close even with some of these aspects in it's own way. Also, even fewer games possess all of these things at one time and for a big roster of characters, I've lost count of how many Warframes there are because it's been updated with new ones many times over the years.
This is also not to say Warframe is copying Sonic or anything, simply that it has many aspects that have been done in different Sonic games and rolled them all up into one game where you can do all things all at once. This is about the potential of 3D Sonic games and where the series can go mechanics wise, rather then condense it all the time to just 2D with nothing new and 3D with just boosting. If you really think about it, a Sonic game like Warframe would most likely turn out to be a faster and more action packed version of 06 with additional and upgraded aspects of past Adventure games.
