Sonic Generations In-Depth Demo Impressions - GotGame

Today we are awaiting the fourth big Sonic game, Sonic Generations, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of this blue beast and is supposed to come out in November of this year. People got a chance to play Generations for the first time at this year’s E3, but Sega was kind enough to release a demo for the public on Xbox Live and Playstation Network so that literally everyone could get their hands on it and try it out. If anything, it shows that Sonic Team are pretty confident with their product this time around and letting anyone play the build so early isn’t just a way to validate all the positive feedback the game has been getting so far. Or is it?

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm really hoping that this doesn't disappoint. Sonic games have lost their touch after Sonic Adventure.

I love this demo. It's amazing and what Sonic should have been. I think Sonic is finally back on track. Hope the rest of the game is as good as the demo.

There's something wrong about it. The physics aint right, i'm sorry.

No, Sonic is not back. Sure, it looks great but that's about it. The controls suck and aren't too responsive...not like Sonic 2 or 3. I like the feeling of control that is in Sonic 2, particularly bouncing around in Casino Night (Sonic responds nicely to a touch of the d-pad.) Also, the formula of "hit a spring, run through a set up course, and stop to do it again is old.) It's saving grace would be to touch up the controls, and have some decent boss battles.

Very surprised nobody here has so far mentioned the very noticable drop to 30 frames. Perfectly playable still at this framerate but it's hard on the eyes and hurts the experience. Very fast side on 2d scrollers suffer at 30 and considering Sonic is just about the fastest of scrollers anyway, it's very much a blur. It's a very lovely looking game but mostly when you're not moving any. 30 frames is very acceptable in lots of games but for a 2d Sonic, one that's even faster now it seems, it's a shame is all
