Sonic and The Black Knight - gorgeous new screens
Wow, I must say that I'm impressed by the texture detail in this Sonic game. Usually textures are sacrificed for a faster frame rate or getting more things on screen. So the question is just how much of a "Sonic" game is this? Sonic and the Secret Rings was basically a Sonic game but there was a lot of other stuff going on in it to make you thing otherwise. I for one really liked that game and it seemed like a good spin-off on the 3D Sonic tried and true. So since the same developers who made Sonic and the Secret Rings are making Sonic and The Black Knight, I'm hopeful that they will fix some of the issues that plagued the former and improve on them in this game. Sega is definitely making this game take full advantage of the Wii's power; the lighting, shading and model detail all reflect a lot of obvious hard work. I can't wait to see more in the near future.
