Sonic the Hedgehog by SEGA
At TGS the Sonic team showed an interactive demo of the next Sonic game for the PS3. IGN has some screenshots. I’ve seen them elsewhere too. And well, I wasn’t impressed. They looked very current-gen. I pondered that if this is the best they could come up with, then I’ll be pretty disappointed come spring 2006.
But then! I decided to watch the video before coming to any conclusions, and well, talk about a difference! Once you see the shadows moving about, stone walls crumbling, and impressive sets actually playable, it changes everything. Definitely a step up from current gen. Definitely next-gen. Sonic himself, though, could have been rendered better. How about some fur?
Sonic the Hedgehog was one of the reasons I bought my Sega Genesis. Now I’m looking forward to seeing how well it fares on the PS3.
