Sega has released another trailer for their upcoming Sonic Unleashed.
wow looks like sonic is gonna be a fun game again
what the hell what happen to the ps3 I am a sonic freak but I refuse to play it on a 360
Sonic is in 2.75D. I think it'll work, but from that video it looks as if you do very little play besides button presses. Hopefully you get a little more control over sonic.
@1.1 The end of the trailer showed the PS3, 360, and Wii logo. The game looks great though. I hope a demo comes out.
looks too similar to the one in R&C but it's not like it's trademarked, right? but is the game is really going that fast, what's the point of the environment then? huhu...maybe it's just me but I'm starting to feel a little dizzy!
Rails have been a big part of sonic game play since the Dreamcast
really? I've never played any sonic games since the mega drive days and never had the chance to play a DC but played some on PSP. I really didn't notice that. thanks though!
theres the spiky blue ball of seizure fun I grew up with Im glad to see sega finally went back to sonic roots its only took them 7-8 years to realize it:P this game looks a helluva better then the last one. I have high hopes for sonic game *crosses fingers and toes*
looks kool but seems a bit on the rails.. heres to hoping it isnt
The QTEs are pretty discouraging as well. And yea, it does look pretty linear- but damn the drifting part looks sweet.
Looks fun, a demo would sure help deciding tho..
Same here. The game looks like it's going to be cool and back to what Sonic should be but I need to test out the controls. This way I can make sure they aren't arse backwards like that...other Sonic game.
rules out a killer app. Hope it is fun though.
Yes because COD4 was a piece of crap :/ end sarcasm Silly comment.
wow. looks like sonic is finally going to be good again.
wow look at how fast he is moving
that how fast he is suppose to be going i hope its fun
simply amazing, going back to the roots but keeping it fresh in a way, the qte arent to bad, looks better then the last few sonics. and seems to bring back that old school gameplay in a way, smooth as hell. i like
doesn't seem that hot to me, sonic doesn't even look like he's running in some parts, more like floating. hope they finally launch a good sonic game
The game seems to play itself...
I miss the good old hedgehog, so many memories on the Genesis. I think this game will determine if teh company will be named "SEGAY" or the true "SEGA"
kazuma giv it a chance sheesh
Sonic died, as did Mario & Metro id when they went 3rd person and or fp. Sorry to say, nothing will bring these back to life unless they go back to their roots. Sometimes to be reinvented you've got to be reborn and in order for that to happen somebody has to take the chance. There is a huge market for 2-d games still. If Nintendo would market the next mario game as a game for the fans of the series who grew up on Nes and mario, it'd be no question how successful it'd be. Sadly, everyone in the industry is pretty stupid.
i disagree, the last sonic wusn't bad, but it wusn't as good as the one for dreamcast. the one for dreamcast was so great. i have sonic the hedgehog and its not that bad. this one right here looks really really good. im a big fan of sonic, ill defiantly be picking this 1 up 1st or 2nd day : ) but mario on the other hand, the latest one, i dont like, but sunshine was awesome and so was all the other ones. just cause galaxy isnt great doesn't mean the franchise is dead, i would be hurt if they were to end the mario franchise. anyways.. this trailer is hot.
what are talking about man? The recent games of Mario and Metroid were awesome! galaxy was the only one i didn't like... BTW PoSTedUP you're talking about the PS3/X360 one?
yea, i liked it. not as much as the one for the dreamcast though.
This is the Sonic that I remember so many years ago as a child. The fast paced action, the quick movements to dodge enemy attacks. Thank you. I just have a few suggestions. Bring some of those enemies back. If Robotnick is taking part in this game, have some robots that shoot fireballs at you and with that speed dodge em. I LOVE the part where ur floating down and have to dodge the spikes. Something about it brings me back to the Special Zones in part 2. I have high hopes for this game and hope they don't try to force a ton of buttons. Sonic is the kind of game that can make due with 3 buttons max outside of the directional pad. Good luck Sega.
Poster of article doesn't understand the term "killer app" The footage does look awesome, though. I'm still concerned whether or not the game is going to be challenging, at all. In that vid it looked like all of the enemies were just there for filler, and were easily blown away.
I was never a big Sonic fan mostly because I never owned a Sega Genesis, but I have played the old school Sonic games before and they were pretty fun and it's interesting how the gameplay switches from 2-D to 3-D. The way the gameplay is set up in this Sonic game reminds me of Street Fighter 4. I guess it's good to see that developers are still showing the PS2 a little love, but it sure will be a sad day in gaming for me when Sony has to pull the plug on the PS2 once that 10 year lifecycle is fulfilled.... Anyways, the gameplay looks pretty fun in this Sonic game, but it's not a game I would spend $59.99 for. Personally I would rather prefer to see another Sonic Adventure game like the first 2 installments on the Dreamcast.
Sonic will undoubtedly look great on the Xbox 360, but I doubt the PS3 can hold the framerate necessary for a Sonic title with its lacklustre performance and inferior memory
fanboy much? oh right, it's Zhuk!
Obviously thats why they only show the 360 version. Hope they can match the textures and color on PS3.
xbox 360's ninja gaiden 2 framerate? HAHHAHAHA And what the f0ck are you lolling about bladefag, go play some games. Or are you waiting for your 360 to get back from repair, if thats the case then LOL!!!
"go play some games. Or are you waiting for your 360 to get back from repair, if thats the case then LOL!!!" Uhm.. yea. Listen here. That doesn't work anymore. I have many counters that I could say to you as well. Such as.. What, do you STILL not have any games to play? I mean, you are on this site as well as Zhuk and Bladestar. So how bout not saying that anymore, eh? =)
Is the fact I didn't see the sonic build up and spin routine from back in the day. The sense of speed definitely feels like they got that back on track and the camera angles seem pretty good considering the speed. I might actually pick this game up when it is out. Not a day one purchase but if I see it in the store when I have the money I will definitely get it.
where the hell is the spin dash?
I cant believe it ...HES BACK SONIC IS BACK BABY!!!!!!!
cant wait to play it
it looked like it was similar to a fast paced version of ratchet & clank future: tools of destruction
You never played Sonic on the Sega-Dreamcast did you ? Shame on you.
looks awesome, heres to hoping they have a story, and a good one, and you can actually control sonic. and it has a bit more 3d than 2d. that is all.
" heres to hoping they have a story, and a good one" you serious?! The so called stories killed sonic for sure. SOnic is best with simple plot, not some dark emo story like the previous 3.
well if the game is like that then we wont need to use the controllers because this looks like it plays solo.
Looks bad ass!
This looks like what a Sonic game should be, I hope the werewolf sonic thing works out.
60 bucks to play Sonic 1 again? I don't think so...
wow, man. my is head is still spinning @[email protected] This has to be the fastest sonic game I have ever seen in my entire life.
...a good 'ol fashion sonic game
Wow, so beside look at what Sonic does, what you have to do in this game? Press buttons at the right time? One of the first auto-playing games of this gen... bye Sonic, you died with my old Mega Drive ;(
Graphics look as good as the gameplay. I love the more realistic lighting approach they are using. And it moves so fast...
Gameplay looks cool but kidna reminds me of Sonic Rivals ans still, Sega has disappointed me more than once and my faith will not be restored until I play the game even though Sonic is my fave mascot.
Yea this looks really good, if you notice there were different paths he could have taken too. Reminds me of the old Skool Sonic days, yep buying first day. Just hope it doesn't come to bite me in the ass like Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
Im amazed by the Top down view on the city...hope there are many paths to go on
This really looks like this could be the game to finally bring Sonic back to form. The incredible speed Sonic is known for is here in full force. The control also seems to be there as well it looked like you wouldn't be flailing around trying to control his speed. The game looks great and I can't wait to see the final product. Being a Sega fan all my life I have been waiting for Sonic's true come back and this may finally be it.
if this game has good cameras and solid reviews it could be the revival of sonic, idc if it gets a 7/10 im gettin it lol if sonic and the secret rings could get avg/good scores this one can get some good reviews =]
Man sonic's such a busy hedgehog. If he isn't at the olympic games he either, brawling with mario, messing with the secret rings, or in this case running threw a city at high speeds. How does he do it?
