The game has its problems, but that 90s cyberpunk style is great.
Makes me wish there were more games with dark cities like this to free-roam back then.

Man, this art really sucks for a number of reasons. Excuse the autism.

>inconsistent light source
The shadow cast by Sonic's nose, the shading on his chest and the highlights on the bridge suggest the light source is to the right of the camera (from our perspective,) but the ugly pillow shading on his blue spines suggests it's coming straight from the camera, the shadow cast by Sonic himself and the highlights on his fur suggest it's behind him, and the shading on the mountains and weird pineapple island suggest the light source is to the left of the camera.

>inconsistent perspective and scale
What shape is the cliff behind Sonic? Why are the flowers facing up? How is the bridge casting such a thin shadow on that cliff. Why is the bridge so thin? What direction is the path behind Sonic? Presumably it turns to the left, but then why aren't the badniks chasing him coming from that direction? Why is the badnik's muzzle flash in front of Sonic's speed lines? Why does the water around the pineapple island seem to ripple from an outcropping that doesn't exist? This all gives the impression that the cover is poorly drawn clipart arranged in a poorly-planned composition, which is definitely soulless.

>Sonic's pupil is hidden behind his brow
I really hate it when artists do this to classic Sonic. It makes him way less expressive and less cute.

It doesn't have to be like this. There was classic Sonic art without these problems
