Some interesting screenshots have popped up around the internet today...Most indy sites already have them, as well as a trailer. Apparently Sega is in the works with a new console Sonic game, Sonic Unleashed. It will be in 2.5D, using 3D graphics with 2D sidescrolling gameplay, along with some Secret Rings-like 3D sections. As far as platforms go, it's at least been confirmed for Wii and PS3 (by magazine exclusives), so a 360 version will probably happen as well.

Let's just hope that this game can save the Sonic franchise. It hasn't looked good for a long, long time now.

That sounds really awesome. I've only ever been able to get into the sidescrolling Sonic games, and they were a big chunk of my childhood after Mario. Then again, Sonic Rush didn't quite have that same spark for me. We'll see how this turns out, I suppose!

It's sonic
It's 3D
There are new characters.

There's a 99.7% chance that this game is going to suck.

I expect the only good thing to be, just like the last sonic game, the music.

I can be hopeful. The last Sonic game I played was Sonic Adventure 2, and I havent played the rest of them since...but I'm excited to see a Sonic game back in 2D.

Except the music in StH2k6 wasn't that great. Compared to past games.

The prospect of 2D view with 3D graphics is exactly what the fuck I've been waiting for Sega to wise up and do for a Sonic game.



And then they had to go and bastardize it with a werewolf concept. :AHJL:KSALKJHVLIUOA

Butit was still quite great. Richard Jaques is a superb composer.

But the thing that worries me the most about this game is the fact that it looks like a next gen version of Sonic Rush and Sonic Rivals. Granted, a next gen version of the successful portable games does sound like a much more interesting endevour than anything else sonic team has put out in the past few years.

Still, you can only expect so much...

I happen to like the prospect of this new Sonic game. Sonic turning into a werewolf is funny, but I like the idea.

So, I wanna give this game a chance. Can't wait till it comes out.

Yeah, I've gotta say that I made my comments about the game sounding cool before I knew about the werewolf thing. What.

It worked for Link.

But it had a really good purpose there! And Link's human (Hylian). Sonic is a hedgehog turning into a wolf? Bweh? I just hope they at least attempt to explain it well and make it worth it.

Sega has replaced Acklame! (Acclaim) as the $2 hooker of the video game industry.

They're trying to copy Nintendo's strategy of updating existing franchises for current technology. Now if only they'd copy Nintendo and put some quality in these games...

It better not be a load of crap. :mad:

Come to think of it... The gameplay looks like they took the basic mechanics from Rush (speed bursts, tricks, lots of rails) and put it into 3D...

And it's my opinion that Rush is the best Sonic game to come out since Adventure 1 and 2. So this is a promising concept.

We'll just have to see how this newfangled werewolf concept pans out...
