It seems not bad but the Werehog and talking areas seem stupid and yeah the side kick makes Tails look mature.

If they had stuck just with the Sonic levels this would be nice.

I don't like the changing camera during the game. I'd prefer control over the camera.

I also don't like the challenges, I'm stuck on the take no damage stage, it's hard to guess which way to dodge. the "classic" controller on the Wii works nice, I can't imagine playing Sonic with a Wiimote.

I wanted to rent the PS2 version, but the only video store in town doesn't support the PS2 that well and I only had the Wii version to rent. Still, a version is better than no version.

wii one should be better than the ps2 one (graphically, at least)

annoying side kick - check

the werehog parts aren't bad, get a few powerups (finish a few stages) and you might start to like it - it worked for me, at least.

as for the "take no damage" stage, is that on Holoska? Just try it a bit slower... I did that, and still got the medal.

I only tried the demo, but I can say... yeah... the camera gets pretty annoying after a while. :p I think they should have just either stick with Sonic Adventure style camera, or classic Sonic style camera. Actually classic camera style would have been good.

I kind of like the new camera... might not be controllable, but except for maybe looking around in the temples, there isn't much reason why it should be.

...wasn't the camera one of the bigger problems in the previous games?

I'm getting this game for my PS3. I hope I get a A-rank on my first try. I still can't believe how the Wii/PS2 version is rated higher than the 360/PS3 version when the 360/PS3 version is better! I really wanted this game to have more features like multiplayer and more characters.

That's pretty much my impression after having played the Dreamcast games as well :p

Will this one be on PC?

I seriously doubt it will be released for the PC, but I could be wrong.

Until I see sonic running around with HD 2D graphics, they are most definitely doing it wrong.

I just got this game for my PS3. Its great but there is one problem. This game has serious framerate issues. You have sudden slowdowns and speed ups. The PS3 version is supposed to run at 60FPS but the speed keeps on dropping. Although it hasn't affected gameplay, it is very noticable.

actually this time 'round the other gameplay isn't so bad, it just was never asked for.
As much as I like this new game, I popped in good old SA2 for comparison and I have to say that a 2008 ps2 game cant beat the DC one from 2001, especially not on the graphics department... tssk.
It does have style, though.
I don't think it'll be coming on pc... Sonic Heroes was the last one to receive a PC port, after SADX (except for Sonic Riders).

Maybe because the PS2/Wii version sucks compared to the 360/PS3 version. They have completely different levels.

SA/SADX: DC , GCN, PC
SA2: DC, GCN
Sonic Heroes: PS2, GCN, XBOX, PC
Shadow: PS2, GCN, XBOX
Sonic (2006): XBOX360, PS3 (Sonic and the secret of the rings: WII)
Sonic Unleashed: PS2, WII, XBOX360, PS3

...where's the logic in that anyway? ;)
The only thing that's obvious is that they're targeting Nintendo's platforms a lot.

A PS2 port from SA2 probably would've suffered, it's one of the more advanced DC games - not saying it's not possible on ps2, but it would at least have reduced texture quality.
