TGS08: More Sonic

TGS08: More Sonic

Lefourbe just came back with a few minutes of Sonic Unleashed gameplay. The game runs really well now, too bad the player is pretty bad.

No streaming? Guess I will have to watch this later

EDIT: Streaming now working! The side scrolling is really nice! Really fast and everything but as soon as it switches to 3D it just looks awkward and doesn't really work! Unless the player is really bad or the controls are hard..

I'm quite interested now.. :)

Bad player or terrible controls?

Looks good, but how bout a video of someone playing who isn't a complete idiot?

Bad player. None of the bits that stopped him looked any more difficult than the SA levels. Although for best times and complete fluidity on a level you'll eventually need to learn it somewhat, that's the replay value.

looks like a mixture.

I bet its a blast if you know the levels.

Most confidence inspiring footage so far for me, and I'm a total Sonic nut through the lowest of lows (having completed the darkest ages, Shadow and Heroes).

The videos where everything goes to plan always look great. When you know your way around '06 that looks brill too, and when you do it even feels pretty brill. It's once you know how the game treats a bad or average player that it's really telling of the game's qualities.

This guy pressed the spin button like three times when he was supposed to jump which really puts him in the category of knowing fuck all about how to play this game - or any 3D sonic for that matter - and the video shows none of the unfair cock-you-ups of the later three dimensional 'hog ventures. This seems at least on par with Secret Rings solidness, and here you control your forward momentum, removing the one biggest gripe with SaTSR.

So all in all, apart from wobbly nutty speed areas (right out of '06 where they were already HORRIBLE) and still kind of vague werehog gameplay details, I find it somewhat promising.
