TGS08: Sonic gameplay

TGS08: Sonic gameplay

Here comes a gameplay video of Sonic Unleashed, for once running on the PS3 and quite nicely at that. It sure is fast, even though the guy playing is quite bad.

Awesome.. the speed, the graphics this is the next-gen Sonic, i was waiting for.

Please,... by now no amount of effort will ever get Sonic right!

Is this all they could have come up with after all else that failed?

How the bloody mess is this different than the last bunch of Sonic games that failed to deliver on almost every aspect?

Let it rest... or at least come up with something refreshing, something that breathes new life into the Sonic franchise.

Whatever happened to the multi-tiered platforming that meant death was never easy? Finding different routes if you fell?

Hmm looks interesting, will have to keep an eye outon this.

Wow that guy is horrible. Atleast it looks like youll have to do more than press right, there is some platforming. Looks about right for a sonic game. They definitely had 2d sonics on their mind when designing the level, a very good thing.

It will be a blast when you master the levels.

They fixed the framerate drops from the earlier 360 demo build from E3? Game is looking more and more enticing.

Like a werewolf? I'd rather have the old Sonic stuff thanks, the stuff that worked, the stuff I fell in love with in the first place.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!

Why can't the just let it go? Looking at this is like looking at someone trying to revive road kill. Let the old dog lie, FFS. Stop dragging it through the dirt.

It's really starting to get annoying how people are constantly referring to games still as "next-gen". I think we're about 3 years past that point of that saying. The word 'next' means exactly just that.

They can't let it go cause some of us gamers think it looks cool. Reason enough.

It seems there isn't much 'game' about this. Just steering a bit and most of the time you can't even fall off the predetermend routes...

How come that all the players in the vid's are horrible at every single game?

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The world isn't interactive enough. It's easy to compare it to Far Cry... and it's probably not as good as Far Cry. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I only played for about an hour so far but my initial impressions are that the squad and stealth stuff is okay but the vehicle handling is indeed super bad. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: that is pretty crazy considering WD2 pretty much ruined the shooting mechanics from WD1 (probably the only good thing about that game) (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I won't call you crazy.. I haven't played either. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts People are gonna call me crazy, but I got far more enjoyment out of Watch Dogs 2's shooting mechanics than Ghost Recon: Wildlands'. Need to test other weapons, but only unlocked 2 of them. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (9 Hours ago)
