E3 Preview: Sonic Unleashed - E3 Exclusive Trailer & In-Game Screens

"E3 08 … the moment of truth. Would Sonic Unleashed suck? Well, if you are willing to have an open mind, and can toss aside your hardcore "sonic must run fast all the time" mentality, then the answer will be no, Sonic Unleashed will not suck.

First off, Sonic unleashed is scheduled for release in November of 2008 for the Wii, PS2, PS3, and 360 consoles, and as expected, the next gen versions will be different in terms of both content and game play mechanics.

The version we were granted access to at E3 was the 360 version. So the information below is in large part specific to the next gen version of the game. The code we viewed was an early version, and SEGA made it clear that lighting, camera, and AI was still being worked on.

That said, lets dig into some Sonic Unleashed details."

The story is too old to be commented.

A Sonic game with Sonic as the only playable character. About time :)

Although I am pretty mad they decided to add that monster. Oh well.

I don't know about Super Sonic though. I remember Sonic the Hedgehog (on PS3 & 360) had CG trailers that had him in it yet we could never play as him.

I agree about Super Sonic. The way the person answered the question was a bit dodgy, so who knows.

The day time missions look incredible, finally they bring the original feel back. Then night time, they ruined the series yet again. A wearhog, come the f**k on!. They had the game then added BS angry sonic mode. Another fail, hopefully they just build upon the better half of this game and succeed next time.

Why is it you aren't willing to give the night time gameplay a chance?

These guys always figure out a way to ruin these Sonic games. They never really listen to the fans until now. Just remove the monster Sonic out of this game and you have an instant classic.

BUT like every Sonic game I have played, I will give this game a chance.

A new development team too and I'm actually glad they didn't decide to add any other characters.

have you actually looked deaper into the nightime parts? The have added more than just some beat em up parts, theres platforming to, I mean its bad that they have really cool speed parts that are classic to the series and added a twist by making vertical platforming parts? You're like 60% of the gaming community that call themselves gamers, but just repeat what everyone else is saying.

They dont look all out awesome, but just because it isnt super cool for you its suddenly fail? Gamer? yeah right, arent gamers suppose to play games, or has the definition changed to person who complains about every aspect of one.

It just looks taked on to make sonic "cool" or something. The day play looks soooo good. But then to make Sonic look like a bad ass they had to make him transform and have stretch arms. I gave up on Sonic after the gamecube ports of those dreamcast sonic games.
