    This game better be good, because most of the sonic games for the past several years did nothing but suck!

    Sonic Generations Looks tight so far. But think about this for a second. Trailers for past sonic games looked alsome as well, but look at them now after consumers played it.

    Take Shadow the Hedhoge for examle. How cool the trailers looked; shadow carrying a gun, very bold. When players actually played it. It was a big dissapointment. slippery controls, REALLY bad camera, dialoge that made players want to throw their controlers at the TV screen.

    Look at Sonic the Hedghog a few years back when it was going to be released for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 306. Boy did the trailers looked cool! gamers and fans lining up a stores to have their little hands on the game, how they can't wait to try it. Sure, it was exciting...Until they actualy played the game. Talk about hitting a new low! terrible game play, gliches, again annoying dialoge. Don't get me started about the relationship going between a princes and the little hedghog, made me want to take a cold shower afterwards because of how dirty it made me felt. Do SEGA cares to proof read their work? Sonic games made after that had been a real let down. The only sonic game I found fun was Sonic Chronicles for the DS, and that was made from Bioware!

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of sonic. Played it on the genesis when I was around 5 years old. Loved it! Still playing it today! Sonic Adventures on the dreamcast, changed the way I look at games!

    The only thing I'm saying is, don't judge a book by it's cover. I'm hoping that Sonic Generations lives up to it's expectations, delivering solid gameplay; instead of making another knock off. Don't let me down, SEGA!

    I don't care about the damn cycle! This game looks amazing! <3 Sonic.

    Also, I wonder what kind of levels they are bringing back. The "City Escape" level from Adventure 2 maybe? Please?
