    Default Sonic 4 Playthru

    Splash Hill Zone run

    http://www.gametrailers.com/user-mov...ll-zone/342639

    Looks okay I suppose.

    I don't like the animations at all, they're just not fast. When sonic jumps he goes into such a slow spinball. Sonics non spinball air animation just looks goofy with his arms and legs spread out and overall they just don't looks solid. Gameplay looks good.. but the animations just looks so bad.. I don't see any of this changing either. For some reason they were going for this "look" and I just hate it.

    Not bad, beggars can't be choosers. I agree about the animation but it still looks like what many fans have been waiting for.

    i am at work, so i cannot watch the video nor comment on the animation

    BUT

    the controls are what will make or break this game. if they have the same 'floaty' controls that plague most 2.5D games, then i will pass. tight controls that mimmick the 16-bit sonic games, i will be sold

    i cant see goofy animation alone killing this game

    Wait until you see this in HD, it's really pretty. While I'm not totally in love with the animation either, as long as it plays well I'll be happy.

    From what I've seen it seems to almost totally ignore the improved tweaks the Sonic series has received over the years, which is a pity. I may be in the minority, but feel the Sonic sections in his 3D titles were mostly fantastic, and the 2D stuff (Advance/Rush series) has kept Sonic in gaming's elite club of AAA franchises.

    No, this is NOT Dave Halverson...

    The walking looks retarded and what's with all the smoke? Makes him look like a jet. Otherwise though, everything looks fantastic. I am looking forward to this

    I like how noone realized in the last 10 years thinks that the whole sonic is about speed was nothing but a gimmick. Im pretty sure if sonic was a game focused on platforming it would be a better game , but we got all these whiners who never got over segas sonic is a about speed campaign from the 90s. The games are all about speed now thats why they suck.

    I'm liking what I see. It seems to have that feel of 'flow' to it that all the best Sonic games have, where you can chain one move to another to another to get through the level as fast as possible. Reminds me a lot of the advance games, though the proof will be in the playing and nothing else.

    WOW, this looks... bad.

    "CG IS THE FUTURE!", Saturn-era bad. (Before companies started to put some actual EFFORT into 3D CG movies.)

    The gameplay looks pretty good - a decent mashup of classic Sonic and some elements from Adventure 1 and 2. But that animation and that design look godawful! Why are Sonic's spikes twice the size they usually are? And poofier?

    And that music...

    Let's stop bitching, at least Sonic Team isn't making another 3D sonic game...yet.

    To be honest it looks good to me. Looks like Sonic 3 (or was it Sonic and Knuckles) where you can use that charge attack in mid-air, and seems to concentrate on speed rather than throwing a whole bunch of obstacles in your way. It doesn't look too difficult, there's little in the way of enemies it seems or maybe just because it's an early level. The presentation isn't great looking, but as long as the game play is there...

    I would give it a shot when it comes out. I haven't seriously played a Sonic game since SA2 and one of the Game Cube ones, I forget what it's called (probably goes to show how I thought of it. Heh).

    Wow, the animation looks AWFUL. Really just, terrible.

    I also really hope that the game doesn't have floaty controls like every other 2.5D game. That's what made me get bored of New Super Mario Bros. so fast, the control just wasn't there for me like it is in 2D.

    Game looks decent though at best, I'm not impressed by this demo at all.

    Interesting, is this the first time Sonic has the Homing Attack in a 2D title?

    I agree with some people about the complaints. The Genesis titles have not aged well. I even like the 8-Bit and handheld titles better.

    We differ here. I still like to play the genesis sonic games often. I think they aged just fine.

    If this game comes out and people start complaining that it's too much like the old games I'm going to scream.

    That reminds me of a recent comic strip.
