Yep, looking forward quite a bit. I think Sonic just fundamentally works better as a 2D game, and the sooner Sega comes to terms with that the better.

This is exactly what i have been hoping for for years now. The team behind it are a good pedigree and the style is on point with the Sega Saturn era. I cannot contain my excitement for the game and it's going to be an agonising wait until it comes.

Trailer look great plus Christian Whitehead is involved, that's enough to make this a yes for me.

I bought a 360 to play Sonic 4 and it was a load of tosh, I won't be getting a new console to play this one but I'm still "looking forward to it".

Always yes. Irregardless of end product a franchise you love is always worth looking forward to a new installment. I enjoyed Sonic 4, i am 100% sure I will enjoy this too!

Just can't get excited about anything Sonic. It's never been a big franchise for me if I'm honest. These days it feels like a dead horse of a franchise that keeps being flogged despite its growing irrelevance. Hopefully the fans will get something they're happy with.

My eyebrows went up the moment I saw the Christian Whitehead logo. Even before I saw the footage I knew this was a game project I could trust. When I did see it, I'm not looking very much forward to it.

I'd prefer the first three games remade in proper HD 2D technique like this Sonic 2 HD fan demo. I'm aware it would be quite the work to do this but if we're playing games on modern hardware then why not give our beloved childhood games a extra visual and sound flare we'd expect from modern hardware? :wink:

But I'm glad Sonic is going back to his 2D roots, it's what I honestly think works best for this franchise.

There are more than enough Sonic games in my pile of shame already.
