    Typical touched up screenshots. We all know screenshots are as photoshopped (or extra rendered) as much as any supermodel.

    I have given up hope of finding a decent sonic game. Sonic Lost World looks good - plays bloody awful on Wii U. For that reason I won't be holding my breath for this.

    A Gamestop had the Lost World game demo on their Wii U Kiosk and I couldn't control Sonic properly to get through the level for the life of me...

    Graphics are great - too bad gameplay is hardly controllable.

    Controls are awful, they just never seem to get it right control wise. The 3DS version at least controls better - the amount of sheer frustration caused on the Wii U version by the sloppy controls, inability to target and slow enemy targeting just destroys all momentum and flow the game tries to create.

    The best sonic game in the last 10 years is actually Sonic Racing Transformed.

    I was quite interested in Sonic: LW at the beginning, but the gameplay trailers were a bit of a let down. Maybe I'll give it a shot one day, but with DK coming up I don't think I will actually. Should get that Mario3d game before either...


    BUT LET'S NOT FORGET: Boom has a different developer and I've read that these former Naughty Dog's worked on Crash Bandicot + Jak & Dexter, good enough for me to be (a little bit) hyped again. According to my age that is. :D

    Trailer looks gorgeous this time!

    So first off these are not just screenshots but come from a live action trailer. This is exciting stuff - a Western take on Sonic - with combat that would appear to involve guns, punching and other things not done in Sonic before.

    This has me interested for sure

    I'm upset and want to cry. But I have that reaction to every new Sonic game.

    Looks like Boom is based on the TV cartoon?
