this is based off a cartoon right? does the game get any amnesty for being a licensed game then, along the lines of like a simpsons game or something?

Yes, it is, and yes, it should be treated that way (since the developers/SEGA/whoever is and was responsible clearly treated it that way too).

Will it, though? I doubt it, but we'll see.

I have now seen the first video and now know the entirety of where the plot is going to go in the next few games.

Yeah, it's pretty much a licensed game. The real Sonic Team isn't working on it.

I'm hoping we see a real, decent Sonic at some point next year.
 
If you were to tell me that the developers of this game haven't actually played a videogame themselves since the PS1 era, I'd have no trouble believing that.

Hey look...it looks like any other action platformer but people are hating it cause it is Sonic. I have not see any bad stuff from this feed except for the commenters.
 
I noticed that when co-op is activated, the shadows super simplify (saw in the video), and I heard folks say the framerate gets cut in half.

So the main game wasn't downgraded with that in mind or maybe they did a bit and just did it further out of necessity.

Man I wish the main 1P gameplay looked like it did when it was unveiled. WHERE IS THIS SEGA? :(

Edit: It's funny though, they had that same clip and area as a title screen at one demo.

Bane? Get them on board, I'll call it in.
What was even the point of this re-imagining?
The game looks like garbage, the animated series was screwed by Cartoon Network (6 in the morning? Are you kidding?), I just don't get it.
 
Why don't they just use the work that was put into generations and make a sequel or a standalone game. Does Sega think sonic only stages are boring.

Well that'll be running on a PC.

I don't think the WiiU is cut out to be running Cryengine games. Heck, PS3 and 360 had trouble with them too.

It's the opposite, it looks like any other (bad) action platformer and not a Sonic game.
