Sonic gets lost in his own world

It's tough being Sonic. Every new release starring the mascot comes with a significant weight of expectancy, and the evolution from his 16-bit 2D heights to a current-day franchise hasn't always been straight-forward or successful. His home console...

This looks like a pretty neat game. The gameplay really is like a combination of Mario and Sonic gameplay. The new enemies are sorta weird, but that doesn't ruin the game. It looks great and I cannot wait to play it.

This game is the (Mario Galaxy game) we were all expecting to be released. Maybe Nintendo decided to not do Mario galaxy 3 as they knew this was in production?? Does look very good though, hopefully a return to form for the Spiky kid!!

This is an important title maybe, a new kind of lost world game, when we have all of the others with their help-less characters. Here we have sonic rushing through it all at top speed.

The lady in the video... OMG... Way to state the obvious about platformer games in general... "basically the aim of the game is to jump through the game and not get killed". I guess I will use that whenever someone asks me how to play Mario... Oh wait, no one asks how since its so common sense.

Dangit! Europe gets it tommorow; we have to wait another week-and-a-half... :'(

That said, it has been a while since I've been so stoked about a Sonic title: it's everything I loved about Mario Galaxy series, but in Blue hedgehog form. :D

This is a pretty excellent game. Not sure why the reviews were so negative. I bought this for my kids and can't stop playing; it's highly addictive. It is really polished. I'm so confused why the ratings were low. Oh well, glad I picked this up.
