Roadboarding? What.

Is this finally the sonic game that everyone dreamed for?

#5 Posted by CookieMonster (2414 posts) -

This game might be alright if they took modern sonic out of it.

Could do this be THE Sonic game everyone wants.....maybe?
#7 Posted by bonbolapti (1596 posts) -

I actually liked this, based solely on the fact that I remember this level :P

#8 Posted by TheMathlete (321 posts) -

I don't know... I kind of interested, but I think I'll hold off judgement until the game is actually out.

Seeeegaaa....

Still waiting to see Chemical Plant.

#11 Posted by UlquioKani (1018 posts) -

that looked like a rehashed level of sonic adventure 2, it was the first stage actually

#12 Posted by Animasta (14633 posts) -

Because they used My Chemical Romance's Nanananana as music for the trailer, or because that level is sort of cool?

Nice.

The modern Sonic stuff looks terrible, almost as on-rails as that Kinect Star Wars game.

#16 Edited by bartok (2406 posts) -

This game reminds me of Sonic Unleashed in that it looks like it is only going to be half good.  Guess which half?  Hopefully "New" Sonic plays similar to Sonic Colors since that game was surprisingly decent.  Seriously go rent Sonic Color it is actually kind of fun and not just for a 3D Sonic game.

When did modern sonic get a tony hawk ride board?

Hope they have the original song for this stage. And a retro-ish version of the song for Classic Sonic.

Yeah, what sort of person would opt to play as modern Sonic? Its a terrible design and his gameplay looks like the same Adventure trash that killed the series.
 
I'm really getting a Sonic Unleashed 'half-good, half-bad' vibe from this. 
 
Come on Sega. Colours was a huge step in the right direction. Don't mess up again so quickly. 

I also don't like how wimpy 3D classic Sonic looks. Come on, even back then he an 'edge' to his design.

Ah yes, that classic "Seeega" chime I used to hear all the time starting up my sega genesis.

What is this, I don't even
 
Sonic Unleashed was "half-good, half-bad", but Modern Sonic is terrible? Does that mean you're actually singing the praise of the Werehog here?

All aboard the hype train, I'm driving!

#25 Posted by Toms115 (2314 posts) -

nope

#26 Posted by EvilNiGHTS (1093 posts) -

I don't even dislike the post-Adventure redesign all that much. It's just that, y'know, the actual games haven't been very good.

Also, what was going on with the last few seconds of the trailer?

#27 Posted by DiGiTaL_SiN (1789 posts) -

this looks wrong some how.

#28 Posted by Korolev (1694 posts) -

Why put in the really old jumping sound-effects? It just sounds weird now. I think they've finally gone loco and are just trying to throw in everything but the kitchen sink into this game in the hope that SOME portion of it will appeal to the market.

I'm not hopeful - it is the sonic franchise after all - but I will watch with interest at how this game turns out. Who knows, maybe, just maybe, it won't be awful. Which would be a very nice change of pace for the sonic franchise.

#29 Posted by Kyle (2323 posts) -

@Korolev: Sonic Colors was good... which automatically makes it like the best Sonic game in a decade.

#30 Posted by LaSombra (8 posts) -

Why the hell does Sonic need a skateboard? 
SEGA should give the Sonic franchise to Nintendo's Mario team.

#31 Posted by metalrader (34 posts) -

Looks familiar.

#32 Posted by falco_eagle (220 posts) -

I actually think the modern Sonic stuff looks better.

I think the choice of music is kinda' weird considering the lyrics...

@UlquioKani: Aye I was thinking that. I'd have rather have Sonic Adventure 2 but this still looks fun
#36 Posted by Clubvodka (410 posts) -

I'll have a punt and buy this day one. Also, yay for My Chemical Romance instrumental in trailer! I jest you not I like that song

Where the fuck is Crush 40?

#38 Posted by supermonkey122 (809 posts) -

rolling around at the speed of sound...
#39 Posted by Mojokilla (36 posts) -

God, I hate Modern Sonic.

#40 Posted by MysteriousBob (6272 posts) -
@BlazeHedgehog: ... what? 
The bad parts were the werehog garbage.
Half of the game was werehog. 
Is that so hard to understand?

:-D love that announcer

#42 Posted by Lonely_Ogre (94 posts) -

I've learned it's best not to get excited about Sonic games anymore, no matter how much they say they're "going back to the roots". That phrase seems too common these days, and rarely accurate. :(

#43 Posted by ProfessorK (813 posts) -
@metalrader: I hope they put some of that soundtrack in this game
#44 Posted by paulunga (1903 posts) -

Nothing says Sonic like My Chemical Romance. Man. (and I actually like some of their songs)

#45 Posted by Shimmy (182 posts) -

So, by "Modern Sonic," I assume they mean the Sonic of ten years ago.

#46 Posted by Jethuty (1023 posts) -

All i could think of when i saw 90es classic sonic on a skateboard:

RADICAL!!

#47 Posted by drstrawberry (108 posts) -

damn you sega!! 
#48 Posted by ProjektGill (752 posts) -

Yea those old sound effects are really unnerving. Is it weird that my favourite part of the Sonic Adventure Battle Series was the Streetboarding section. For some reason that appealed to 14 year old me.

#49 Posted by Bonsai (93 posts) -

I don't really care about this game, but I still have one question. Will classic Sonic be voiced by Jaleel White?

I'd recognize that downhill street anywhere...
