The Sonic Fan made demo "Sonic Fan Remix" has finally been released, in this Demo there's a big improvement in terms of graphics when comparing to any released Sonic game. Did SEGA made a good effort with Sonic 4 or could they have done better?
Played this today. THIS is what we Sonic fans want to see! Sega should definitely be ashamed, considering basically 1 guy did this where whole teams of Sega-developers failed.
Download it people as soon as you can before SEGA will C&D it... And yeah, Sonic 4 has NOTHING on this game. I'd pay for this wonder.
... I guess Sega can't cope with screwing up the Sonic License year after year after year after year, and then this kid shows up and does a brilliant job at what Sega should have been doing!
Damm, that's nice. This guy should start a company, and call it Ages, see what I did there spell Sega backawards. Anyway, excellent job, keep on the good work.
on previous sonic posting SEGA should hire this kid and produce his game art style.
hire the whole team, it was made by enough people they should all get a job; bet they'd make a better game too.
Only possible on the Sega Genesis!
It looks and sounds really good. This is a work of love and I agree with everyone that Sega should be ashamed of being upped by a single person. Kudos to the guy and I hope that he finds a great career in game making.
just downloaded and tried the demo out. This is the game I grew up with, well the gameplay. Sega should retire and sell the franchise named Sonic.
This guy should be insanely proud of what he did. If anyone within SEGA has a shred of cognizance, they would pull a Valve - hire the guy, have him lead the full game project, and reinvigorate the Sonic franchise. I mean, Sega had the right basic idea with Sonic 4 - bring it back to basics. The episodic thing, the wonky physics, and the weird graphics screwed it up. They could undo that stuff if they Portal-ed this game and creator.
These guys have more talent than the sonic team. Sad really sad I have to say. Hand over sonic to these guys so sonic can come back from from hell and get his wings back. Sega= lost talent Fan made team= talent with a very good vision for the series. Can I also say that the demo is dynamic.
even got weather they need to get this guy for episode 2
made me cry Sega sucks
I can't start it. I'm stuck at the press start screen.....I pressed eneter, F5....num lock and 5. I pressed everything now...IDK...I want to play. EDIT: Ok finaLLY played it. It's cool. All it really is is the old sonic from sega with different art.....sega could of done that but guess they wanted S4 to be different, but sort of the same feeling.
I just played this today over a billion times lol. I'm sorry SEGA but this one is much better then the ones you made. You guys should make this into an actual game for the 360 and PS3.
whoa... VERY IMPRESSIVE the animation is very good considering it's fan made , almost what's needed in retail but the most impressive is the overall feeling while watching it .. it feels like sonic 3 ..
are we are in line with the orignial sonics. Sonic 4 had very wonky physics.
Sega should be ashamed of themselves 16 years and sega couldn't even get the fundamental movement of sonic right, the music is horrific and they copy and paste everything from the old games. Then here's 1 guy who gets everything right. The looks, the physics, the music. This is the style we wanted from a remake. Was it Dimps who made Sonic 4? They should be called Gimps
Hopefully Sega gets the message after this. THIS right here is what we want in a sonic game.
How can i download the demo? plz pm me.

Also if you havent already you can download it off the site http://sonicfanremix.com/
That was fast of SEGA to talk down the DL. Well thank god for the internet :) http://www.megaupload.com/?...
Thanks for the reupload bubbles
YES! I love the intrawebs... Hopefully the guy making it isnt harassed by sega enough to stop production. Otherwise may I suggest a green hedge hog named tonic fighting his nemesis lardman. :)
Anyone else just fall through the floor at the beginning of stage 1? I can only move left and right a little while falling through the floor... I was all excited with setting up my controller and maxing it out in the launcher options too. :(
I guess the directory I had it in was too long, moved the game folder to the desktop and it got rid of that glitch.
The guys who did this truly captured sonic's running and physics, in sonic 4 it just felt wrong...
yeah what was with that it was like there was input lag.
SEGA should fire all the people who made Sonic 4 and hire this guy. "ERROR: This file is illegal." Damn you, SEGA. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
This is how Sonic 4 should have been.
this looks great but i like sonic 4. am i the only one?
Yes, auto lock on is bull shit.
No your not.. I think this fan demo looks great and have good visuals however I am enjoying Sonic 4
I'm really really liking Sonic 4 and while this does look amazing, and I know I am going to get killed for saying this, I think Sonic 4 is better. That's not saying that I think that Sonic Fan Remix doesn't look good but there was a review of Sonic 4 that basically said Sonic 4 felt like a sequel to Sonic&Knuckles, that's what makes it great and I agree with him. Sonic 4 feels like a progression of Sonic&Knuckles, even the story is linked in with it. And yes the physics may take a bit of getting use too but wouldn't you're physics be a bit out of whack if you had spent the last 16 years getting smack around with a Wiimote.
these dudes should be in charge of all sonic games
What i dont get is why company's like Sega,Square Enix and others dont just talk with these people and make a deal to support em and have em release the game. Then we would have had some good fanmade games like this and the Chrono trigger remake but instead they shut these projects down.
they shut the projects down and try to hire those fans. But they are ashamed and ignorant of what the fans really want.
Nowadays everyone puts Sega to shame...
Damn I really wanted to try it after seeing that video but it wont let me download it anymore :(  Nvm. Thanks wwm0nkey
Look a few post up :)
Good luck. Hope this still works. http://www.megaupload.com/?...
Team Sonic: worst devs ever.
I think we should all fund this guy and help him start a his own game studio!:)
Lets see here... I have $46, 2 pennies, and some pocket lint.
Is it really illegal for him to release this demo if he is NOT making a profit off of his work? I always thought that copyright laws only applied if you were selling a property that isn't originally yours. Maybe I'm wrong. He should be able to continue distributing this as long as he doesn't charge for it and credits Sonic as being a Sega property. Also, this is a remix. Meaning some changes were made that are not necessarily Sega's creations right?
yea they still can take it down, remember that Zelda fan movie that was free for anyone to download, Nintendo made them remove it, same concept I guess.
Yeah it sucks. This is another one in a long list of fan made games with good intentions that are getting C&D'd. Just like the 3D Chrono Trigger game.
That was a real shame. That had some serious potential. What it is is that these fans have the passion to take the games further than the original devs, and the original devs don't want to be shown up. It's also greed. Greed usually removes passion I've seen.
Whoa talk about getting beat at your own game. Hahaha. Pathetic...
this is one i would probably buy. Thank fully pirated that sonic 4 let down. Sonic team are awful sega are awful stop butchering this legendary francise. Years after years let down after letdown. after clearly knowing what fans wanted. Do they do this is purpose?
if you cant even do a hd-remake of classic, what hope have they got
I am downloading as we speak!!
Sega died years ago
Amazing, frankly. Kudos to the guy.
I just played it simply AMAZING! EVERYTHING IS CORRECT EVEN THE WAY SONIC MOVES. SEGA HAS BEEN OWNED. SEGA DISGRACE .
needs work but it still does put Sonic Team to Shame.
Sega, you watching? THIS is how it should be done.
WoW impressive a fan made sonic game is better than a sonic game made by game developers. LOL!!!!
just played it and wow, just amazing, Sega should immediately hire whoever made this and let him/them continue this amazing game, wow that was a pretty demo.
Sega should hire these guys and them release the game to PSN and Live for free.
ha ha ha sega team now look like a bunch of noobs
that looks amazing
They would be hired as developers, and this game would be made official. Unfortunately for the fans that's not going to happen. I just hope they get to finish it.
Sonic 4 looks good, but this does indeed look better and i enjoyed this more then the demo they put up on PSN. Runs great and looks excellent. +1 bubble to uploader. And major respect to the team that did this.
Downloaded just in time.
Whoa. Looks like someone ought to think of hiring someone.
I'm getting sick of you people. This game looks EXACTLY like Sonic 4 and you act like it's a new and different game. Even if SEGA released that game and called it Sonic Fan Remix you would still complain about it, hypocrites
are blind or somthing? have you played sonic 4 and this? to even compare these too do yourself a favour and play sonic 4 first and see how it moves then play this one and see how it moves.. and the graphics and music that looks amazing compared to sonics 4 music and graphics? you must be some kind of troll or a dev from sega jealous that got owned.
No it doesn't. This game is teaming with color and life. Sonic 4 is too bland and straight forward.
