    The fact that Christian Whitehead is working on this gives me hopes that this will be good.

    i love it when companies go back to the originals! i loved the original sonic games very much, since at a time, it was the only games we could play. hoping it won't cost too much!

    Looks good. I've never really played much of the Sonic games, but I'll probably get this.

    This looks really cool.
    I'll have to keep it in mind when I actually buy a current-gen console :p

    Should have called it Sonic the Hedgehog 5 and no Wii U version? :thumbdown

    Ditto.
    I mean, the game does look good, but his name is like a second quality assurance.

    Looks good, but I've been burned by so many Sonic games I just can't be excited.
    I think the probability of this being a day one release purchase for me is almost zero.
    I'm going to see what everyone says and wait for the first sale.

    I think you can rest easy this time. This is basically being made by several of the big names in the Sonic (fan game/ROM hacking/music remixing) community. Christian "Taxman" Whitehead created the pixel-perfect engine that was used in the recent widescreen remakes of Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, and CD, based on a disassembly of the engine Yuji Naka built for the Genesis/MegaDrive games. This team knows what makes Sonic games tick better than anyone remaining at Sonic Team would.

    Looks good. But it'd be cool if they ever got around to doing Sonic Generations 2.

    Everything I wanted to see in a Sonic game reveal. I want them to take all the time they need, but would have been nice for the holidays.
