Sonic the Hedgehog (character)[edit]

Since the CVG Peer Review wasn't very helping (and Mario is also aching for the FA), I need to know what is needed here. igordebraga 16:38, 25 August 2005 (UTC)

It's a very decent start, but I think it still needs some work.
  1. Statements such as "incredibly popular", "overwhelming popularity" and "Sonic is well known for his various abilities" are non-encyclopedic.
  2. In some places it is unclear what is canon, what is non-canon, and from whence the non-canon material was derived. An example is the "Former US/UK version" section, where it expounds on the coloration question that was earlier stated as non-canon. But what else in that section is non-canon?
  3. There's also an issue with the chronology in places. For example is says "In more recent games...", but never explains what is meant by "recent". How will that read in 20 years? Likewise for "In later games he...". Specific dates would be better.
  4. It could use a reference section, instead of general statements like "American sources often claim" or "by some sources, 16-year-old".
  5. Is there any information on who is credited with the creation of this character, besides the company?
I hope this was helpful. Thanks. :) — RJH 17:33, 26 August 2005 (UTC)
