Sonic the Hedgehog Preview

It's been fifteen years since Sega's world-famous mascot arrived in a blur of blue. Fifteen years of sequels, new characters, spin-offs and reinterpretations that have added more to Sonic's world yet also watered down the appeal of the simple high-speed concept. Well that's all history now - new Sonic The Hedgehog is dumping all the unnecessary innovations and taking the series back to Year Zero. There are no gimmicky team options here or bizarre explorations, just Sonic. Running fast.

The story is too old to be commented.

First, why did they put this under the Playstation 3 category? It seems to be only for the 360 according to the article. Does anyone know if it is not an exclusive?

Back to the game. How long has it been since I fired up that Genesis and became one with that 2-D game? I remember trying to complete the boards in seconds. trying to break previous records. Now it seems as if we have that back in the game, but with a few more features like plot, graphics (obviously, right?) and action.

Lastly, to answer one comment that was in the article which said, "Haven't played Sonic since the first 2, but wasn't Dr. Robotnik the bad guys in those? Where did Dr. Eggman come from?"

Dr. Robotnik is Dr. Eggman. I think it is only the US that knows him as Robotnik (UK maybe too). I am sure though that Japan calls him Dr. Eggman (and so does that article).
