Nemain, a member of Sonic Stadium, discovered earlier today that along with the new ability to pre-order the game, they also received the ability to download an incomplete version of the game. The fansite moved quickly, many members playing the title and capturing screenshots such as the one above.
The hole has since been patched, but many fans managed to play enough of the game to form their impressions and everyone seems pleased with the title, calling the graphics superb and expressing enjoyment of the humor. Any discussion over the leak has been erased from the official SEGA forums.
This is the second leak the title has experienced, the last one occurring in February. The game launches on May 15, 2012 and is available for pre-order on Steam. Let’s see if any more leaks spring between now and then.
Youtube member ShadowOfRuki posted videos from this leak
I'm liking what I see, I enjoyed the first part once I got over the fact that it was Dimps style Sonic rather than classic Sonic we wanted. This seems to address some issues I had with the previous episode (jumping, physics etc) and to be honest looks like it could be a good downloadable title.
