    is up on marketplace.



    It's just a nicer looking version of sonic adventure and offers absolutley nothing, and resolves NONE of the fundemental flaws that have been in EVERY sonic 3D game...

    Pretty looking pants...

    So basically it's the same thing Sega has been pumping out for years... crap.

    That fundamental flaw being what? The camera? Yeah, that was always annoying, though not an issue exclusive to 3D sonic games nor Sega.

    Personally, I loved Sonic Adventure and am looking forward to this new game as well.

    i always felt that when Sonic went 3D that I have no control over the game. I just ran forward and Sonic did all these loops and flips and stuff that looked really nice, but I hardly felt like I was playing the game. Seemed like all flash.

    Flaws.

    Very Poor Camera. This one seems worse than others,

    Poor Control mechanics. This is actually worse than Sonic Adventure (its more like Heroes)

    Trying to do the Jump A attack on enemys and constanty falling off the side of the platforms because you have ZERO control of where you land.

    Where as Prince Of Persia had the control mechanic down to a tee, this seems absolutley criminal in 2006 and after so many attempts from Sonic team to get it right. Hell they did Billy Hatcher on the Gamecube and that had FAR better control & camera than this.

    Even achieving simple things like trying to hit switches (to activate the wind platforms) you now can end up falling off the sliding off platforms trying to do this.

    They have added a Sonic Slide attack, which basically means added to the hidnrence of poor control and camera, we now have you uncontrolobly skidding all over the place... Genius !!!

    It's VERY poor - I like sonic, and this is the worst one yet - albeit the prettiest.

    Yeah, I do recall the controls being frustrating at times, but not enough to hinder me from beating the game... and a friend of mine being able to fly through levels and unbelievable speeds I could never hope of competing with... heh.

    So you are saying the controls are worse then SA1? I'll have to check that out myself, heh... guess I'm just more curious now.

    When is this supposed to go gold?

    Since it's out in November, I'm assuming it is gold or near as.

    Oddly enough I've seen japanese players that can play such games so well as if to say "You don't even know how to play games."

    PoP:SoT has awesome controls, although it does move a LOT slower (and the faster something is tends to make it harder to control).

    I loved Sonic through Sonic and Knuckles, but man, the 3D sonic games blow.

    Meh, I really thought Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 were great, despite their flaws.

    At least, whenever you played as Sonic... the other characters I didn't care for.

    Some of you guys know I hate sonic games but this(Next gen sonic) one seems interesting with the silver character plus it looks great so i might just have to check it out.

    Sonic still sucks though:D

    I think I can enjoy any 'sonic' game to a certain extent. I'm a big sega fan, so my loyalty lies here.

    I'd play it but alas I have nothing to connect my xbox to screen wise.

    I really liked sonic adventure one and two, some bits were a bit scripted but it was no easy game.

    It was definitely awful.

    It's nice though that it only took a few minutes for a download and not a trip to the store and $59.99 to find that out.

    Tried the demo... great graphics, horrible gameplay. Avoid like the plague.

    Why does Sega suck so much these days?

    It just seems weird to have Sonic on any console other then a Sega made one.....It be like Mario on the PS3, simply never going to be as good as it was on its "home console"
