I still like Sonic and think Colours is a pretty amazing game but I cannot for the life of me  understand why anyone would get excited over that boring trailer.

@marioncobretti: I've been hoping for a Mega Man style de-make since MM9.... this is about as close as I'll ever get :L

also if theres ever a game thats got "Robotnik" they can just have my money.... I'm amn't even a sonic fanboy ironically, last sonic game I actually bought was Sonic Mega Collection on PS2... I usually know better but this... has my interest peaked.

Damn that look interesting? It's a clip of Sonic running, and then another Sonic running. I don't see get how it's different from any other Sonic trailer they've released in the last 20 years, so I can't get excited about this.

Eh, typical Sonic trailer. Sonic 4 burned me so bad that I'm never buying another Sonic game again.

The last Sonic game I bought was Heroes. I played 4's demo, but it just didn't feel right. Colours looked pretty cool though, and the old school Sonic render in that video has got me interested, at least. But the days when Sega would announce 'New sonic game!' and I buy it no matter what, died with the Dreamcast.

Very hard to be excited for another Sonic game after the crushing disappointment of the last few, especially Sonic 4 which came close to greatness but was utterly ruined by the physics and general incompetence of the developers.


The classic Sonic design does look MUCH better than the current one, I really don't know why they haven't gone back to using it sooner..  Make this a 2D game with 3D graphics and have Sonic revisiting all the best sections from the previous games and I might be a little interested, but I still don't expect this to be anything above mediocre fanservice.

So the gimmick of this Sonic game is that there are two Sonics?  Why is this exciting?

Further, why is it taking them so long to make Episode 2 of Sonic the Hedgehog 4?

1.  It's classic Sonic.  From when Sonic was actually cool and didn't just look like a douchebag who wants to be cool.
2.  Because Sonic 4 was utter trash.

Co-op?

Sonic 4 and now this game (or at least the teaser) are using the Green Hill Zone aesthetic (grass with brown dirt blocks underneath) to try to manipulate fans with nostalgia so that we say "HEY SONIC 1!" and we get excited.  I don't like that.  Imagine if every Mario game had World 1-1 so that fans would be manipulated in to being all nostalgic rather than Nintendo allowing fans to experience something new.

Why does Sega think every Sonic game needs a gimmick? Give me my Genesis era Sonic without the wonky feel of Sonic 4.

I do like seeing a 3D model of the older, less-dumb-looking sonic, buy I'm far from hyped.

Well I must say, that definitely got me by surprise. I was ready to be unimpressed. Not to say I was incredibly impressed, mind you.

But right when I was ready to say the trailer was showing nothing special, still the same old "new age" Sonic running, classic Sonic comes in. Just when I thought Sega was never going to acknowledge that change in design.

While I'm not "excited", I am at least interested. You have my attention, Sega.

Am I one of the few people out there that think there has never been a quality sonic game?

I would have preferred in New Sonic ran into spikes and died, leaving only Classic Sonic.
