I agree with helooo nurse 100%. I grew up with sonic adventure playing t when i was 6 or 7 then sonic games went downhill. The only good thing i can say about this is that the graphics are good. I liked the (sonic) in force unleashed but this is stupid

i agree with nintendo-naut because sonic was better before he needs no change the same with unleshed im getting it but the sword might mess up the good and the expectations it was sopposed to get isnt because of the sword plz sega stop changing sonic sonic is fast not slow like unleshed ware wolf sonic is a fast advanture not like this one because now u cant collect rings wat yea u can't come on sega u can do better

I have to admit I have lost ALL faith in the sonic franchise after being let down time and time again ..... This one looks awesome folks but I don't know. The sword is a nice twist BUT WHATS NEXT SEGA????? Personally I WOULD LIKE TO SEE SONIC WITH A HUGE CRACK PIPE IN HIS HAND AND HIS MISSION IS TO FIGHT ADDICTION Because SeGa must be surely on crack to keep this Tired franchise going.......

When will Sega accept that their little spikey-headed mascot is DEAD!!! Why must they continue to punish us with game after HORRIBLE game featuring bad controls, annoying characters, terrible level design, etc...? Someone please call Sonic Team and tell them that after that garbage fest - Sonic Unleashed - they should disband and call it quits.

While this game looks AWESOME and I'm sure I'll get it, I'd really like to see Sonic go back to what he once was...Sonic's awesome--He needs no change.

Should be at least a decent enough game. From the trailer it could be much more than that, it could be excellent. I'm just hoping the sword doesn't impact the trademark Sonic speed, well at least too much, and that the controls aren't like that really awful system used in Sonic and the Secret Rings.

I don't this game would be bad and I don't think this game will be good. To gamespot most likely bad.

can't say i have high hopes for this since every sonic game is a flop (other then the ones for classic sega systems and also sonic chronicles is a good game) but we'll see u never know :)

Looks promising...but difficult to predict anything from here. Sonic may look good with a sword if they designed the game for a mature rating, but then again, Shadow with gunz and "Mild dialogue"should have too. Let's just hope for the best.

Hmm... Hard to say if this is going to be good or not. On one hand, they are doing the traditional 2D transitions (and some other stuff) that were great in Unleashed. On the other, the swordplay thing has a lot of potential to become one of those stupid gimmicks we keep getting. So, in short, no way to predict what's going to happen.

you know, this song sounds very similar to "what im made of" from sonic heroes.

"great"another "well thought up"game. Come on first slow characters then "wherehogs" and now swords now they went too far. I didnt like sonic but not even his games should be this bad .HOPEFULLY this will break the habit.

Oh fer the love of- Okay people, here's the skinny on the game. Sonic going further into already written stories, okay I could buy that, you know MAYBE if they did these games properly, which lets face it, Sega and Sonic Team haven't gotten a Sonic game right in God knows how long (possibly Sonic Adventure?) Sonic doesn't need swords, Shadow doesn't need guns, introducing Sonic with a sword is like giving the black knight a bazooka in medievil times and sayin 'Hey go nuts'. It doesn't fit! Sonic uses speed and spin dashes to fight, why should he use other stuff? This game is gonna be linear, it's gonna be poorly voiced over, and it's gonna be another let down. Sonic unleashed had one thing going for it, the day time scenario's where Sonic dashed through cities, it was fast, it was fun, it was simplistic and it was SONIC! Not this werehog crap, not the sword wielding crap, just straight out, dashing around and reaching the goal! SONIC, WHERE HAVE YOU GONE?

hmm... i wonder what ever happened to the chao garden...

yes!!! finally a GOOD sonic game is coming out (hopefully) , they completely ruined it and ran out of ideas werehog sonic is stupid and i rather stare through 3D glasses for a week than play as werehog sonic!!!!!!

I think this game is going to be better than Unleashed becouse there's no Werehog stages.

and for those who ask what happened to sonic well he died a few years ago or alot (whos keeping track?) and then they replaced him with a hedgehog that looks exactly like him...but bigger,suckier,and slower

lolzman2
lolzman2

oh i just know this game is going to suck balls heres why a sword what in the hell we want speedy action not sword swinging action sonic is also one of the games that needs to jsut die out (i know millions of stupid sonic fans the love him all because theres speed but they dont remeber how frustarating these games are and slow will rate my comment dwon even though its true)

the dialogue just bothers me thats about it n probably the music i want some classic sonic music or at least some SA2 music and give us sum neck breaking spine tingling speed we've been asking for the longest . they make super man look faster than sonic

imabadgerlol

hmm... i sounds more like a extremely high speed sonic game (could this possibly mock zelda) nahh maybe not

Game looks good, but I hate how they make all the Sonic games look so corny with the music and the backgrounds.. xD

Sonic+Sword= Medieval Time This game could have a lot of potential if Sega can do it right.Then to match Sonic's speed with Sword combat, it just might be a good game.

Ok, now this is something odd, sonic needs a sword? oh well.. But the game actually looks promising, doesn't seems to me to be open world-based, but on rails.. looks like the secret rings's sequel to me. But still.. I think the last great sonic game was adventure 2 battle. i Wish a sequel with the very same basis... i loved every kind of gameplay in that game.

Sonic was one of my first video games I have played and I loved the 2D hedgehog. But more recent sonic games over the past couple of years were pretty bad. I think this game could go either way. It could be a cool free roam, with no repetitive fighting, and cool upgrades. Or it can turn out to be the another bad Sonic game. I hope its good!

I'm a big sonic fan, ever since I was younger... Unleashed looks like the day levels are the only thing fun about it, even the final fight looks really lame.This looks awesome though... especially if its a wide open world, I think that is ground sonic hasnt touched on, think about it... A big open world with sonic-like elements, but with revisitable areas such as Zelda... has potential... that IF they dont mess it up... I know SEGA has been messing sonic over for some time... But really Im extremely biased... I even like sonic heroes (sic)...

ok song is awsome but did somebody read the words Arthurian Legend,you know there is a diffirence between bieng wierd and being creative and this not creative,people at sega should really see games like little big planet then they will know creativty

this game is gonna be awesome and im sure to buy it. btw, if this is a bad game, sonic adventure 2 battle is the worst game ever. the best combination for a game is SONIC + SWORDS + RPG, and this game is the closest thing. so, in conclusion, all of you that think this is a bad game are OUT OF YOUR MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PS: the other Sonic games are just as good as the original ones.

This is pretty much the secret rings but it takes place in the mediveal times and sonic has a sword, they might as well made a Sonic the "Link"hog, no offense

to be honest i think this has the potential to be the best sonic game in years,it sort of seems like a zelda meets kingdom of hearts ,but that sounds like a cool concept,and it looks like you really get that sense of speed that the sonic games have been lacking since the genisis but i wish sega would make a new console:(

i am kinda excited. i really liked sonic and the secret rings, but the erazor djinn had an awful voice and it was more mission based rather than level based. i felt that they almost had it besides having sonic always move forward causing some very frustrating times. if i saw this preview at the same time i saw secret rings preview i would be hella more excited about this one.
