They should just release the old Sonic-games on XBLA.
I tried the demo, for like 5 minutes.. meh..

Sonic’s 1 foot alone is larger than the princess.

And I’m totally going to buy and finish this game. Maybe not with all the characters but I will with Sonic for sure.

why is he saving a human princess? He's a fukkkin blue hedgehog. This game has almost the same gfx as Sonic Adventure...for Dreamcast.

Now this is what I expected from next-gen. Unfortunately, other games don't seem to follow the trend and 2007 will be a year of mediocrity.:(

If only it had the same gameplay and quality of level design...

this is one game that should never have gone 3d. It's unplayable.

I got the demo and deleted it after 5 minutes of wasting my time. It's just way too easy to jump off a cliff by missing a jump onto a rail, or missing a turn cause you are going to fast.

I still can't understand why Sonic's model looks so damn crisp while the enemies and background suffer with a much lower resolution and some jaggies. It almost looks doctored.

Besides how dissapointed I am in the graphics; I'll still buy this game cuz'... im still a sonic fan (that hopes someday Sega will stop making these #^*$&$@ games. There downfall happened after Sonic Adventure)

The game isn't out yet, and I will not question you once you have actually played the damn game.

I played the demo and thought it was horrible.... at first.

But then I began seeing how easy it was to get to grips with it. Not only that, recently looking at the later builds of the game, it moves more like Sonic Adventure 2, which for me was where Sonic had the best animation and movement.

We were given an E3 demo, one of the earliest builds, one which people like you probably begged for, but companies don't like doing that, especially when it WILL NOT REPRESENT HOW THE FINAL GAME PLAYS!

I also have a friend who went to a recent event in Manchester to have a hands-on with the retail version of Sonic, ie. the one that WILL be shipping and not the E3 demo.

His words were:

"Guys forget you even played the demo, because this version plays more like the previous Sonic's before Heroes."

This game definitely has my vote.

Also, people really need to GET OVER the fact that he is now situated in the human world, his arch-nemesis is a bloody human! So it makes no sense to bitch about there being more humans about.

You guys want 2-D Sonic? Then stop posting your disdain for the 3-D ones and break out an emulator, or your old genesis/megadrive and be in your essence there.

The demo looked very smooth at 60fps, so I don't think these stills are anything to really worry about.

Another thing, people should really stop judging games by their screenshots.

I don't get why the same people saying 3-D Sonic sucks are the same people that ask why it's not the same as Sonic Adventure 1 or 2???

Am I missing something here??? I could swear the last time I checked they were both 3-D games..

You're definitely a 13 year old kid...

Tights maybe??? Stockings???

Do some research, before you try to make an educated opinion and sound smart..

Where the HELL is tails fur shaders ?

Man can't really say this takes advantage of the 360 or PS3 can we. ?

I will get it anyways, hopefully it will be better than the last few sonic attempts.
Commented on 2006-11-07 19:36:15
Wouldn't fur shaders on Tails make him look like a ginger m-...

Someone finish it for me..

Uh what? Their downfall happened because of the poor 1st/3rd party support and a PS2 that had no good games at launch

This is the first next gen Sonic game, cut them some slack, it's not always easy to adapt to a new system right away

I liked it, I pre-ordered it already :)
is it true that this game is delayed from the 17th to 24th in europe?
Commented on 2006-11-07 20:12:10
It looks pretty good, but i still think it's weird that there are realistic looking humans with Sonic. The picture where he is holding the princess in he's arms is kinda weird :P

I'm glad Tails makes a return ( not that it is suprising though) he is still my favourite character.

Probably, Unless you're waiting for the PS3 version , :P
Commented on 2006-11-07 21:16:09
The demo showed some potential, after you get used to the controls. Ill think about it. But its probably one of those games ill get when the price drops.
Commented on 2006-11-07 21:45:07
Somehow they've found a way to anti-alias the main character alone and not anything else. Like the shots with sonic and tails, they're super smooth and the background poly edges arent. Weird.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (28 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (29 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (40 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (42 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (44 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I believe it has to do with the fact that there's too many games to play at the moment, and most of these new games ar very long. This is the week FF15 was just released, and WD2 on PC as well. (46 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Maybe, but I believe it would have become a kind of "cult-classic" niche game even if it failed to become a very huge success. Still, if a game like TF2 isn't succesful, it's a real shame. (47 minutes ago)
