Hmmm... This makes me a little more accepting of this 3-D Sonic game compared to the last one's.

Dunno about you guys, but this is one hell of a boost to my confidence on this title. If anyone can get Sonic in 2D/3D right (as has been proven with Sonic Rush) then it's Dimps.Smilie

Great news! Dimps are fantastic, hopefully they'll really make the Wii differences stand out from the (assuming) identical Xbox 360/PS3 versions.

Can't wait!

i hope they do the controls right and not somthing silly like this for running

" - Tomoya Ohtani from Sonic Rush will be the sound director."

Best news EVER.
Sonic rush had utterly fantastic music.

Please!
I did hope so. Maybe they achieve something good graphicswise. If using the same engine, then graphics on Wii would be utterly devastating!

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

Tomoya Ohtani from Sonic Rush will be the sound director.

Damn. Yes, I'll probably be hated upon for saying this, but I though Sonic Rush had some of the weakest music of the series.

Although as long as Crush 40 is around I can't really complain.

I still think the PS2 version will be the same as the Wii version *cries*

EDIT: I think Crush 40 are kind of out of the loop now. Also Jun Senoue doesn\'t really compose anymore. Crush 40 are worthless without Senoue, because their versions of His World and Seven Rings in Hand weren\'t nearly as good as their other stuff.

I agree about seven rings in hand. however, His World happens to be my favorite song by crush 40.

I will miss Senoue, though. Smilie

If you ask me, Never Turn Back (Credits song on Shadow The Hedgehog) is Crush 40's best. The game isn't so great but Crush 40 + Jun Senoue are as awesome as ever.
