I think this is one of the few games I've seen recently where the specs are actually sensible in terms of GPU required/recommended. Normally it's sort of "nVidia 8600GTS/ATi 4850" or "nVidia 9800GTX/ATi X1600" nonsense that makes you wonder if they bothered to check just how good the cards they're 'requiring' are. ;)

So looking forward to the classic 2D bits. They can leave out the 3D bits though...

I hope they fix Sonic's personality. I cannot stand his "OH IM SO AWESOME XD!" personality recently.

He used to be portrayed as humble.
