|Started downloading now, but it's going freakishly slow. I downloaded the Dungeon Siege demo much faster, and it's twice the size. |
Anyway, I thought the vids looked pretty good, hoping this'll not be a disappointment.

|Very impressed with it, makes Sonic 4 look like dirt, I just wish they would've added in City Escape 3D so we can test out that aspect too. |

|Agreed with #8, I was hoping to try both aspects of it. |
I love that the proper Green Hill Zone theme was used - felt a little sluggish at the loops, like Sonic just fell at the top of the loop because he wasn't going fast enough. Hmm.
Definitelt looking good though.
Anyone else surprised at the time restriction (19 days) on the demo? Never seen that before.

|yeah and it`s a really short demo only green hill zone Part 1 . It took me 2 1/2 Minutes for my first run trough it. I must say I really liked it. It feels like a great sonic Game the graphics look very good. So I think I will pre-order it |

|I played demo and really good but demo is very cheap shorter because one level I just finished it 1 mins and 18 secs. Let hope game release got lots of levels and take through more then 10 hours one playthrough but I guess I don't think will be. I like graphics and good gameplay I love Sonic so nice see classic returns with modern Sonics :D |

|Just played the demo, and I'm pretty impressed with it, although I will admit it was weird that Sonic somehow didn't have enough speed to go through a loop without needing to spin dash. But hey, the game's not coming out till November (last I heard), so they've got a good amount of time left to work on it. |

|Wait wait, what is this game exactly? I totally missed it during E3. Are they remaking some of the best levels from different sonic games? I heard Sonic Adventure being thrown around, so are they doing some of the 3D games as well? Sonic 4 was basically already a remake of some older levels, but this could be cool. I'll DL the demo. |

That would be amazing. That's the only potential reason for the 20 day limit that makes any sense to me.

|The demo was pretty good. It was nice playing the game with the retro music with the updated visuals. I found though the background was really hard on the eyes when sonic was going blistering fast. |

I think the demo has a 20 day limit because today is Sonic's 20th Anniversary.

|Okay I played it through and I have to say, the visuals were really fucking with me. The background is almost headache inducing, but the worst part is how the camera is constantly moving in, out, around, and sideways in a really stuttery and awkward manner. Oh and why the hell would they have Sonic fall on his ass, immobile for a full second after he gets hit? Sometimes I don't know what Sega is thinking. |
Scratch that, nearly ALL of the time.

|Completely agree with Comment #23 and #30. I could barely look at the screen. Waaaaay too much going on, couldn't really see what was happening. This game feels like a step in the right direction after the abomination that was Sonic 4, but it's pointless if I can't even see what's happening. The way the screen scrolls only adds to the pain. |

|Wow, Sega...I...I never thought you could do it. The 2D gameplay shown in this demo is perfect, just how 2D Sonic should play. Now, as long as the 3D gameplay is also good, I'll be buying this at launch. |

Well, obviously the limit is 20 because of the anniversary. The question is why there's a limit at all.

|i havent had any problems running through loops while running unless i lost my momentum and had to run abit back to get a run up again. you know like classic sonic games. |
visuals were lovely, the camera was only wonky on this onepart but like it sys its a really early demo so im sure someone will fix that.
fixed all the physic problems from sonic4 and actually plays really well. looking forward to this.

|Nope. Not the redemption of the franchise that it desperately needed. |
Played it and there was 3 main faults that really put me off it.
1) Sudden direction changes.
When running really fast, and going over a loop, as soon as Sonic would be upside down, holding right means that you would travel right. So on a loop you would stop mid air and run the opposite direction, rather than continuing the way you should.
If youve ever played Fancy Pants, online or on Xbox, then you'll know how it should be, that gravity < momentum. they should worry about keeping a smooth flow, than physics.
2) The X button, or the reason why Down+A= useless.
You can pretty much play the game using just the x button. I dislike that.
Also, if you want to roll while running, pressing down just makes you stop, rather than roll.
And most of the time, using a stop and spin, still wont get me enough momentum to clear a loop, or twisted road.
3) Confusing visuals.
With the new 3D style visuals, its hard to differentiate between the foreground and background. It made it quite hard to tell what i should be aiming for, and what can or cant affect me.
Through all of these things, its made it less of a "Wow! Im reliving my childhood" to a "Wow! They're killing my childhood!"
They havent made a good 3D sonic game yet, so im not sure why they keep trying, even the 2D/3D games have had bad controls and by bad gameplay and shiny graphics, they've lost the appeal of the good old games.
If i want to play a sonic game, ill stick to the Backbone versions, so i can play it on my xbox, with no loss to the playability.
Cmon sega, just accept the fact that 3D and sonic should never mix.
