    IGN has posted a video of gameplay from Sonic Unleashed.

    Source.

    The initial fly-by of the city reminded me of Soleana and left a bad taste in my mouth, but I have to admit that I liked what I saw of the gameplay.

    The 2D sequences really looked good and it looks like they have tightened up the 3D sequences. Imagine having an actual target on the enemies you are going to air dash into.

    It also looks like there might be some elements from the Sonic Rush games.
    Seems that Sonic can gain boosts in speed by pressing X and he can blast through enemies and obstacles while running at that level.

    I like it that he is able to go fast under his own power.
    Sonic could never go really fast in the last game unless you ran over a speed belt.

    I'm cautiously optimistic. Werewolf Sonic could yet ruin the whole thing.

    Ehh...kinda wished the game was in 2-D sequence the whole way through. The 3-D sequences are okay...it's just something some Sonic fans like me haven't been able to adjust to yet.

    Wait, you're a Sonic fan now?

    Since when?

    All I've ever seen you do here is piss and moan about him being in Smash Brothers and how his games aren't Mario...

    Whut?

    Last great Sonic game I played was 3, so I am hoping this brings it all back.

    Oh and that Indy Sig is making me twitch and my confidence is going down.

    I was a Sonic fan since the first game on the Genesis.

    First off, when the hell did I ever say anything BAD about Sonic being in Smash Bros? I for one actually WANTED him to be in Brawl, and I got my wish. You, however, probably read some of my posts in past threads about Sonic games, and decided to exaggerate the truth about what I think of Sonic. Hell, I like Sonic. It's the newer games I don't give a damn about.

    Second, I will admit, Sonic's games aren't similar to Mario's games. Sonic's always had his speed, and Mario's always had his jumping ability. They're different characters; both are great mascots that have a long library of good games. I have nothing but respect for Sega. It's just that, IMO, they seem to have lost their touch with making video games. So, I don't see why you have to go and make me look like this kid who's a total Sonic hater. Again, I have nothing but respect for Sega and Sonic. To be honest, I think Sonic is still running strong; Sega just needs to spend more time with the Sonic games instead of rushing them, trying to get them done before the date of release. Sega is promising the fans with Sonic Unleashed; they're spending more time in making this game, and we can only hope this makes up for the god awful Sonic the Hedgehog game for the Xbox 360 and PS3.

    Go ahead and make your witty reply. I'm ready.

    Don't forget that "Dark Brotherhood" RPG out this year, as well. Looks like Sonic is finally back as far as the Quality Department is concerned.
