Sonic Unleashed

Sonic Unleashed is built on a powerful new "Hedgehog Engine", which introduces seamless 3D to classic 2D camera transitions, whilst delivering a rich and expansive world with multiple paths to choose from. Under development for three years, the Hedgehog Engine produces a visually rich next generation look and feel with elements of classic Sonic gameplay mechanics. The Hedgehog engine will help re-define the gameplay experience for Sonic fans and newcomers to the franchise alike.

Having been broken apart by the evil Dr Eggman, it's down to Sonic to put the pieces of the world back together again by retrieving the power of the chaos emeralds. In doing so, Sonic will find himself in a race against time and faced with an unusual situation that will challenge him in ways never before seen. By completing a wide variety of action-packed stages, spanning the seven broken continents of the world, gamers will need to unleash Sonic's amazing abilities to save the world, and himself!

The opportunity to engage in Sonic in different ways during the day and night time levels brings a completely original way of playing to the Sonic franchise, in addition to running at high speeds in classic Sonic style, combat fighting will become possible. Super quick Sonic's speed skills will be highlighted by four new modes, whilst the all new combat, movement and functional abilities will offer depth and variety to the game. As the sun sets in Sonic Unleashed, a different type of adventure will awaken in Sonic's newest quest....

I can't wait! I will get this game and it will be the best one yet, no matter what other websites and people think about how the game is going to turn out.

I want this so bad! Sonic in glorious 2.5D.

I agree with you, Sonic Fan 195. People that are fans of Sonic would enjoy this. Haters can hate where they need to be hated.

You should be #1 Sonic Fan. If nothing else (Fire Emblem, Monster Rancher, Digimon) I'd want a lot is out in December, I'll get it. Even if the controls aren't too great, it won't matter. I beat Soulcalibur Legends! =P (it's somewhat difficult).

This had better be good. I haven't seen a good Sonic since Sonic Adventure, though Shadow was pretty good. It'll never be like Sonic 2 for GameGear or Sonic CD or even Sonic the Fighters.

Guitar Legend said:

I didn't get the control design of Secret Rings. AND, I never liked Sonic. I only liked the adventure games where you take care of chaos. Chaos ROCK.

Chaos are overrated.

Sonic The Hedgehog said:

Hey guys, what's going on. I'm back again, so what do you think my next game Sonic Unleashed will get? I put a lot of time on this one with the werewolf thing, but other than that the stages were crazy.

Sonic Master said:

Diddy Kong Lover you are so wrong about this game. Every new Sonic game has to be better than the others (except Sonic the Hedgehog on ps3). So why do YOU like those games better than others? If I were to have this game RIGHT NOW I'd give it a rating of 10.

This game is the biggest hope I had in a sonic game since Sonic & the secret rings.

Meh, not too excited. Seeing how mostly all the new Sonic games have been garbage.

This is going to be the best one yet.

Diddy Kong Lover said:

No way Sonic Master they won't get better until pigs fly. In fact B Darius has basically nailed it.

Pretty typical. Make a course builder then you have every sonic level into 1.

Since this game is developed by Dimps and not Sonic Team, I'm looking forward to playing it. Those screenshots above also look gorgeous, just hope the game looks like that when it arrives.

This is my only hope in a Sonic game since Secret rings.

This game is really fun because it's not a game that takes you 5 hours to figure out to do one percent of the game. I like it mostly because you can do day stages (real Sonic) and night stages (werewolf form of sonic, P.S he is still a good guy).

This is not the best, not even close!

sonic master said:

This game rocks, especially the night stages when you get to be sonic the werehog. Oh let me not for get the boss Dark gaia when you're super sonic, I love that. My favorite character is chip, he is funny.

BrothaZ said:

This game sucks, especially the night stages where you're forced to see sonic turn into a 3 year old version of the hulk. With hair. My favorite character is sonic, he's so silly.

YoshLee said:

Sonic master: Eh. From what I heard the night stages are the game's key downfalls, while the day time stages are the only parts of it worth playing.

Avatar

Parvin said:

Yup. YoshLee is right. But then again Sonic master has a good point as well. It does sometimes feel cool when it's like you're actually punching. But I'm still part of the 'I want more day stages' people. It's not a bad game, it's just ruined potential really. But if 'Project Needlemouse' (new sonic game in 2010) is on the Wii, we will definitely be getting somewhere.

Darunia said:

Yeah the nighttime stages are interesting at the beginning but they outnumber day stages 4 to 1 most of the time, they just get tedious after a while.
