Good grief, I'm grinning from ear to ear after seeing that trailer. I can't believe Sonic's actually in the game and he looks great! I'm also laughing about the fact that Nintendo have done a better job representing Sonic than Sega have been able to do for years. It's all about the nods to the old s...

Despite knowing nothing much about this game it's easily my most eagerly anticipated Sonic game in a while. Actually it’s probably because I don’t know anything about it other than the fact Sonic Team aren’t cobbling it together.

Aaah, has anyone used the 'smooth' mode I think it is. The game looks all odd and almost cell shaded. Makes the levels looks nice but Sonic looks almost melted.

No Sonic RPG love at E3? What a disappointment. As much as I’m looking forward to Sonic Rush Adventure I’m more eager to know more about this game.

What the hell? This game still feels wrong to me but seeing Eggman kicking about the place looking very much like he did before the Sonic Next makeover makes me somewhat happier. Mario being able to run with Sonic is just wrong but they should have the plumber beat the hedgehog at the high jump. Foo...

Screw it. Watching the video reminded me of Sonic Rush enough to not care if the backgrounds look bland. It’s fun, fast action with DS gimmickry added for good measure. Sonic as he should be. Lets home Sonic and Blaze remain the only two playable characters though…

Being the obsessed fan I am I downloaded this last night I prefer it to the Wii version. It looks a lot better on my HDTV than the Wii version anyway. I'm a little troubled at the fact this is the 5th time at least I've bought Sonic 1 (Megadrive, Saturn, X-Box, Wii and 360) and that I did so without...

Good grief I hope that music is genuine. That boss music in particular is fantastic. Say what you will about the puffy ‘remake’, the level seems interesting enough to blast through and a lot longer than the original first boss level. The game play vid I do like the look of but agree wit...

Oh dear, in motion the game doesn't look any good at all. It's fairly colourful but it looks slow and awkward. Maybe I'm spoiled by Sonic Rush's insane speeds but this game did look quite bland and simple in motion. The racing thing could get annoying after a while too. I like to explore the levels ...

The story still sounds a little dubious but I'm willing to let that slide because the gameplay is looking quite good. Despite the fact I've never used a Wii controler before I still found myself annoyed to watch people play the game badly.

The only game I remember having a real problem with the pits in was Shadow. The other games never bothered me, not even Heroes. The only reason some of the guys fell off the level in these videos is because they sucked, quite frankly. The game is looking great, I'm quite excited by everything I've s...

That was quite an interesting look. Just seeing how the levels become larger and more complex as the games go on... a Sonic 1 map being roughly half the size as most in Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Another thing to note, most of the levels have an actual solid floor. The only ones which don't are ones suppos...

There's a reference to Driver and True Crime in GTA Vice City, two people you have to kill in a hitman mission are named similar to the lead characters in the other titles.

Green Gibbon!, unfortunately I can't answer your question as I've never played PGR or number 2. I got Metropolis Street Racer for Dreamcast and as far as I can tell PGR is just a slightly spruced up version of that. I can tell you I'm loving the game and it's Live-aware features.

The 360 came out in Europe today and I bagged myself a premium 360 with 3 games and a wireless network adaptor. The adaptor was a bit pricey but a necessity if I ever wanted to get my 360 online. My TV & console are just too far away from my PC and internet connection. Overall I'm very impressed. No...

Even though Rush isn't in the top 40 it's the second best selling DS game this week, after Mario Kart DS. I really do love the game and pray for a new and improved Rush 2. I hear a lot of people actually like Shadow The Hedgehog and am appalled by that fact. So even I got suckered in and laid down Ã...

Well the full thing is up. No new news on the Next Gen Sonic title but it's interesting to hear hope on another Sonic Rush style title and also hope of further marrying a 3D Sonic title on a 2D axis. I don't care how many other titles they are working on if they refuse to give us any clues and there...

Green Gibbon, I've avoided all the big stores just for that reason. Game in the Uk were taking £20 from punters in the summer and now have way too many pre-orders to meet demand.

Brilliant. Shadow storms the UK charts at number 25. Hahahaha! Meanwhile, Heroes which is nearing 2 years of age is at number 35 in the top 40, selling more copies last week than the newly released Battlefield 2: Modern Combat for consoles.
