    This looks awesome. I'm surprised they aren't just continuing the Unleashed daytime style of gameplay, though. Not disappointed, just surprised.

    Wel..I based it on what I saw at the shadows, isn't it? Was lucky I guess xD

    I'm liking very much what was shown today...wasn't expecting Sonic Xtreme At All. This looks very promising!

    I don't know why everyone is saying it's like Sonic X-Treme. If anything, it looks like Sonic Dash Temple Run, with its long, seemingly automated forward paths. I was expecting fish-eye camera when I read the title on the main page.

    This actually looks quite cool! It seems weird that Sonic is flipping over to get back up, yet can run up walls just fine :v:

    Artistically, it looks a lot like Jade Gully.

    I'm seconding the Super Mario Galaxy vibes on this one. In fact, this game matches stylistically with the more recent Nintendo titles pretty well. This is not a bad thing!

    Looks really nice, loving the art style. The gameplay... not so sure on the Xtreme-esque vibe, but the last 2 games have given Sonic Team enough credit in my book to reserve any further comment until I actually play a demo of it, and I did like Mario Galaxy...

    Certainly very promising.

    I just see Green Hill Zone wrapped in a tube, but I guess that's just me.
     
  9. Why not? It's amazing.

    Looks pretty interesting so far. I can definitely see some of the ideas they were experimenting with that were new in Generations (that video sure has a lot in common with Generation's Planet Wisp, but with more checkerboards and puzzler elements).

    EDIT: Which means I'm actually pretty excited so far. At the very least it's definitely going to look really nice.

    Wow. I didn't know what to expect when this game was announced, but I certainly didn't expect THIS.

    It looks really, really nice. That art direction is just beautiful, exactly how Sonic games should look IMO ;_; It's nice to see that the game is borrowing from the classics; with the classic animals and badniks, the peel-out, the sound effects and just the bright, surreal look of the game. Not forgetting, of course, the Sonic X-treme vibes.

    I enjoyed Generations and Unleashed, but it's nice to see a different gameplay formula here - especially if this means that the bloody boost is now gone...

    Looking forward to seeing more about this! Now I just need to buy a Wii U (I was considering it anyway, but this has helped me to reach a decision) =P

    I'm loving what I'm seeing, but at the same time, I'm gonna miss the Generations-style gameplay. It was flawed in some areas, but if it was fixed up a bit it could have been near perfect.

    Still hyped as shit for Sonic Xtreme Galaxy, though.

    No boost? Spindash is back?
    Ordering a Wii U right now.

    So uh, nobody noticed that it less graphically impressive than Generations and Unleashed? That makes me wonder if they're going for 60 fps with this game.

    Recently watched the trailer, and I must say... It's look pretty awesome...

    Now I have reasons to buy a WiiU, possibly I will buy the 3DS version too...

    I agree...Sonic Lost World doesn't look that impressive or fun to me. Homing attack spamming on enemies...fewer things happening in the environment...Green Hill Zone # 476. I'm not interested.

    I wasn't sure if I noticed or not. the lighting definitely seemed like a step back, but the video is way too compressed (both on IGN and on YouTube) to see if they're making other cutbacks such as polygons, textures, and other fine-detail stuff. It's also unclear at this point what resolution it'll run at; Generations and Unleashed didn't reach 1080p on consoles, but this may or may not.

    Thank fuck, Now it's just time to remove boosters and automatic springs and yay, 3D classic style!
    Seriously though, I see a bit of Nintendo in this game, a big bit, and I'm so glad that they have the classic flickies and enemies. Glad I have a Wii U too!

    Wonder what other levels will look like.

    Oh hi 3DS version.

    It's not just the lighting, but there are far less objects on the screen as well.
