El33tonline Preview: Sonic Generations

"Yesterday’s announcement that a Sonic Generations demo would be released today caught me completely by surprise – I was anticipating one much closer to the game’s due date at the end of the year.

For those of you who don’t know – 2011 marks 20 years since the very first Sonic the Hedgehog game appeared on the Sega Mega Drive. Sonic Generations tries to pay homage to the series’ rich history by including levels, music and gameplay mechanics from the various Sonic titles we’ve been treated to over the last two decades." (PS3, Sonic Generations)

I tried the demo just now...
... it's only the 2D level (which was the only thing I was interested in anyway), and it looks great and it comes very close to the old gameplay.

I say 'very close', but it's not perfect (yet?). When you come of bumpers it's hard to immediately give direction, you have to keep pressing right (or left) to keep pace, and when you're running in a looping it's hard to turn into a ball like you could in the old games by pressing 'down'.

I hope they fix all that stuff, and it could be the best Sonic game since Sonic CD (if the 3D levels don't screw it up...)
