Music seems a little less-punchy than the original. Dunno... just feels smoother and more streamlined and it's not an improvement. Very minor thing though.

So this game looks cool, but again I have to hearken back to my first response:

Looks good.

Did it really take them this long?

Like, I dunno, it does look good. And that's great! But damn... the last 20 years of the Sonic Experient ends with the conceit that "maybe we should have just made Sonic 4."

Head, meet desk.
:U

at least it looks solid

You guys ready to feel again? Gameplay starts at around 50 seconds.

Why is the camera still positioned so sonic is right in the middle of the screen?

Literally everyone knows that's a bad idea. How are you supposed to GO FAST when you can't see what's in front of sanic's face? HOW???
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

You have to memorize the levels!

I'm just hoping this game doesn't fall into the usual Sonic trap where the levels they show off are the best levels and then you get the game, play those two or three levels, and the rest of the game is mediocre lameness.

So wait, are there two Sonic reboots coming out? We'll get to replay Green Hill Zone again (again!) twice in the same year? What the heck is going on?

The gameplay in this video looks pretty bland. Sonic moves weird... the enemy hitboxes are wonky... he looks like he did in that awful attempt at Sonic 4.


Ripping this from a reddit thread: Sonic Generations' version of Green Hill Zone looks better.

Why two games at once?  That seems silly.  And it isn't like the latest Mario games like New Super Mario Bros where the focus is on multiplayer, vs Super Mario Galaxy.  These two Sonic games look basically the same.
Probably not a Goat, either.

And unfortunately for them, one looks a fair amount worse than the other.

Sonic 2 is a great game, but it isn't Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

Sonic 3 & Knuckles is the best Sonic game.
