http://uk.media.ps3....960/vids_1.html2 new vids. Now that I think about it, this is the first time they released ACTUAL Shadow gameplay footage for Sonic Next.Plus Side======Homing attack looks nice (better than Sonic's)Chaos SpearRiding a vehicle feels like playing HALOBad Side======New model looks dum (Spikes more pointier and inwards)The way Shadow looks while skating is gayWell, thats my opinion. I beleive the original Shadow model (SA2) is the best.If you have good eyes you will notice that where you would look to see the amount of lives you have you see a picture of Sonic. I'm like WTF, isnt this Shadow gameplay?

Wow... I actually think it's looknig good... His animation is very stilted and stiff, I agree.. but that's just something they're probably not focusing on until they've worked out other major problems with the game (or am I retarded and this is nearly finished?)Whatever the case, it actually looks like the game is much more fine-tuned than the previous 3D ones... I didn't mind the Shadow game that much, story was absurd, but it was fun to play at least. This footage kinda paints a different picture of Sonic Next for me, I might keep myself more open-minded to it.

Co-op or GTFO.Seriously though, the vehicles look like they function a lot less gay than in Shadow the Hedgehog. For a start, you actually WANT to use them now. The fact that they look UT2004 worthy makes you wonder how multiplayer battles will work...

Yeah, Shadow hedgehog vehicles were lame. Don't you just adore the way they changed the vehicles now. it more fluid than shadow game and can roll over just like HALO. *runs to play multiplayer online Blood Gulch*

If those are the only 2 faults that can be found with this game, I'm sure people can live with it. Really.Again, Next looks good, and more interesting than Wildfire.

Ok...first off...Shadow looks gay...at least his hair anyway...and his animations are still crap. Especially when he's in the vehicle..at least his hair could move or something.Didn't notice that Chaos Spear he shot out....this will be interesting indeedstill can't make a judgement on the voice though

I played shadow in the updated e3 demo at digital life 06. They made him much slower than sonic, his homing attack is different from sonic in that you can keep shadow in the same spot mid air till you let go, and the chaos spears have a crummy auto aim and give shadow unlimited jump. I hated playing the shadow part of the demo.

Looking a gift horse in the mouth are we?It seems to be the equivalent of getting Tails in EC sans an action replay....I guess I don't mind taking advantage of loopholes and such.

Vehicles look more manageable, which is good. Still, they hardly seem conductive to the gameplay. "Hay, let's have you drive for a minute through a bunch of pillars!" Extreme pillar action, apparently. Chaos Spear lameness...blech. Last thing we need is to make the games easier.

That's just unfortunate, and a shitty song too.

So long the viechels dont control like ass, Shadow's game looks fine. Running animations look fine, the only nagging concern is the homing jump, there's like a 1-2 second delay before going into a homing jump... Given enemies can hit you very accuratly when homing jumping as Sonic, Got to be a bit worried about Shadow's enemies being the same and forever annoying you by knocking you off course by the time you're ready to attack... The Chaos Spear glitch... Well, that just shows you can't win in the community. Everyone moaned about falling off stages oddly in Heroes and Shadow... But now there's a way around it they have to be "hard core" and say it's lame because it doesn't make you die. I, personally don't find a problem with it. I can see my self abusing this a lot. =)

How about they find a way around it that isn't lame. Putting Sonic in an Egg-o-Matic would fix the bottomless pits too, but it'd be pretty retarded.Now, proper level design ... ... ... nah.

There should be an item that gives you a chance to hop back onto the path if you fall into a pit, like the horse shoes in Sly Cooper. Or maybe they could give more bottomless pits air current to make you float for a bit before you fall, like Pumpkin Hill in SA2.
