    The demo expires in 19 days, and I have to say, I almost teared up from nostalgia, guys and gals, the game is going to be AMAZING!

    I sucked it up and paid the £6 for a month gold subscription.

    I've really been looking forward to this game, downloading it now.

    Edit: It's a lot of fun but it doesn't properly capture the classic Sonic feel.
    In a nut shell, it's TOO FUCKING FAST.
    I mean oh my god he accelerates to top speed just by holding the X button and his top speed is even faster than on Sonic colors.

    The level design, being designed around that though, is very good. Multiple branching paths that reward you with split-second reaction time and stage memorisation.

    Seriously SEGA can you take the speed down a notch?

    Were you playing Modern or Classic Sonic? I'll be greatly disappointed if Classic Sonic played the same. We already have Sonic Advance 2-3, Sonic Rush+Adventures and Sonic Colors DS that play like that and this is meant to please new and old gamers.

    Awesome! Nice to see a demo this early.
    EDIT: I really like it! I only wish it was longer, and it had a 3D level. Still, now I'm excited for the full game.

    Its an early beta build, they slowed him down as seen in the e3 gameplay.

    Guys, this is it, they really brought sonic back and made him better, the Gameplay was so fluid yet fast, despite the game running at 30 FPS, sonic felt like sonic 3 sonic, but on speed.
    The demo is only one level, green hill classic. so no 3d mode.

    Thats the e3 build

    And the build we get is like twice the speed lol...

    For those who don't want to/can't play the demo, here's a summary:

    The demo contains what is most likely the first level of the game. You play as Classic Sonic, speeding through the level, which contains all sorts of different pathways.

    It was kind of hard to enjoy, because Sonic goes way too fast. I couldn't really take in the scenery and structure of the level because of that, and I just found myself holding right on the analog stick and pressing A and X when needed.

    I have exactly the same problem with the Wii, but the 360 has almost every week new games.

    I'm the same as RupeeClock with the 360. Got all the consoles, got good games for them all, but end up playing mainly the Wii and PC.

    This looks sweet though.

    Same I've just got my 360 and I played it a little but the games just seem...very disposable. Yet I'm back on my Wii replaying some right gems.

    I sold my Ps3 because I found it too bland, I only play my xbox for exclusives, and I only play my wii for the next best game, but overall I'm a pc gamer.

    Honestly, I'm happy with the direction of this sonic games, when I saw city escape I almost shouted in enjoyment, I hope this game is amazing, and I hope the reviews and sales are respectable.

    I just wish it was on PC.

    I'm not a big fan of Sonic at least haven't been for many years, but I have to say that this game plays really well compared to many of the previous Sonic titles. As an added bonus the game looks great in 3D.

    > Implying that he is supposed to go along any other way.


    Anyway, I don't have an Xbox (Me bro does), but he plays on it quite alot.

    I've seen the video and it actually looks nice, and fluid. Still won't ever beat the memories of Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3&K, Sonic CD (Loved that game, so...freaking....much!), and Sonic R for me.

    I really liked the Demo. I was disappointed it was only one level because I would have really liked to have played more. Previously I really didn't care about SG but now I'm going to keep an eye on this.

    I played the demo then went: "One level? Wtf? Tout 2 mode gameplay and only show us one?" I was expecting a Modern Sonic Green Hill level as well.

    The game looks good, but needs to be more polished. There are a few bugs. SEGA's on the right track so far.

    I hope they'll manage to make it run at 60 FPS.
