    A new trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog (PS3/Xbox 360) reveals the ESRB's rating for Sonic's first next-gen outing: E10+, the same as Shadow the Hedgehog. The trailer features mostly CG cutscenes, all of which are impressive to say the least. But it's the gameplay that counts most, so make sure you keep the two separated before you squeal "OMG."

    Looks awesome, really. Here's hoping the story is as good as the cutscenes make it look.

    Eh, kill me if you want, but that doesn't look like anything from Sonic. I mean, it looks like an alright game, just nothing you'd see from a Sonic game.

    That looked. AWESOME. I actually lol'd pretty hard at the two "stop" points (enter Sonic, and Sonic beats the last robot)

    Looks like some kick-ass CGI.

    Shadow had kick-ass CGI too. Huh.

    Somehow I kinda had a hunch it would get the E10+ rating.

    The CG looks a bit underwhleming to be honest. The game looks incredibly sex though.

    ....Simons gone.

    Anyways, this trailer looks great, but its not worth me buying a 360 for. I'll wait until halo 3 comes out then buy them both.

    ESRB is overrated, no one follows their rating system anyways(look at all the 9 yr olds who have M rated games their parents bought for them), it should be abolished.

    Cutscenes are nice, but from experience the game doesn't play really great. I still hope they'll fix the controls.

    Blaze has been confirmed to be in the game, but Omega? That seems a bit odd and pointless to me... Why are they still adding more characters? o_O

    Maybe they finally giving him a decent story? =P

    Well, maybe isn't him, but on the site, the preview image looks to be him.

    Welp, this.
    I remember reading in an interview a few months back with one of the producers, where he explained that the idea WAS to originally stick only with Sonic (a la Wildfire/Secret of the Rings), but then the fanbase started asking "Where's Tails? Where's Knuckles? Where's Shadow?" and they changed the course of the game.

    So I'm guessing they're just going to throw as much fancruft in as possible.

    EDIT: Oh god, what is up with the Linkin Park/Limp Bizkit ripoff vocals? I do NOT approve.

    And this is the exact same mistake they've been making since Sonic Adventure 2. Ugh.

    Blaze? Propels my rediculous fan theory that Silver is from an alternate dimension future. HA HA.

    I want to see if they slightly redisigned the other characters as they did for Sonic and Shadow...

    Methinks, however, that we'll know a lot more on the 22nd.

    Hey, here's one advantage about having these characters in the game: we know they're not eliminated from the possible new canon, and we know we don't have to play as them to beat the game, we just have to talk to them in the Town Stages, which is fine. It's better than being forced to play as 9 different characters to beat the game - now it's only 3.

    And another GREAT thing about the new characters: Blaze's place in the game means that they're not restarting the canon, they're sticking to it. THANK GOD! Sonic's not going all Marvel Earth-616 on our asses!

    That music sucks for a Sonic game. In my oppinion.


    EDIT: What I do like is that they're teaming him up with a human girl, a là Madonna+Sonic. We'll see how it works, and if they should have really done that in the first place.

    ^Indeed. That music is embarassing to listen to. Logically, shouldn't Sonic Team have got the point after seeing Sonic Rush's soundtrack being as heavily lauded as it was? The Sonic Rush soundtrack got more praise alone than Shadow the Hedgehog as a whole.
