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.
