It's been confirmed: Sonic the Hedgehog 4 is releasing in summer 2010. This topic is just to discuss your thoughts on it.

@Death Certificate: Is it a good game?

I'd really prefer them to advance what they started with the Sonic Adventure games. They put out two great 3D Sonic games, then lost a console, and put out nothing but crap so far as console games for a few years. Then Sonic Unleashed came along and was actually pretty damn good. The were-hog part was enough for most people to condemn it though, and the industry at large turned a blind eye to one of the best Sonic games in years. It was average, but in terms of 3D Sonic games lately, average is gold. I'd really like them to take it and polish the hell out of it. There is really something worth-while there.
 
This game is not really paving any new streets. Sonic has been successful in 2.5D on the PSP with Sonic Rivals, and  on the DS with Sonic Rush (may have been just regular 2D, now that I think about it). And there were even great regular 2D Sonic games on the GBA with the Sonic Advance series, that incorporated characters from the Sonic Adventure series. All of these games were great Sonic games reminiscent of the classic style. This one looks just as good, but i don't know why everyone is treating it as a return to form, as if Sega hasn't been putting out similar games for years. 
 
This is not the type of game Sega hasn't proved they can do. In fact its very obvious they can do it just fine.

@ofaaron:
I liked sonic unleashed as well, but the gaming community hates sonic and because of their hate, the advance and rush series often get looked down for not being like the classics. This game was made to show these anti's that SEGA can still make good sonic games.

Yeah, they should continue stuff like Unleashed. Without the Werehog.

I'm glad Sonic 4 is out now and all, but there's another game I wish Sega would release that many fans have been waiting 16 years for... STREETS OF RAGE 4!!!
