It does look better than the disconnected IGN videos, but this game still feels so soulless and character-less. Pretty atypical for Sonic.

Still look rough but we have a better idea of what the game is. The open world is more like an open hub than the actual level, which is reassuring.

Just hoping it isn't as confusing or frustrating as the Sonic Adventure hub world.

That game was considered a killer app when it launched though. People loved it and it blew minds (critically as well). So that's probably not the best comparison, because if it's as appealing to people as Adventure was, everyone's going to love the hell out of it.

Well how about that, a trailer for thsi game that makes it look like a cohesive game, what a concept. And it actually looks pretty neat.

Agreed. Though I do wish the open world area had more variety and had an art style more like classic Sonic. Ie. a Green Hill zone open area, Chemical Plant open area, etc.

It looks like there is judging by this trailer. they have different areas like the cyberspace and the iconic Green Hill loop.

Yeah that is promising. I do wonder how long the Cyber Space linear levels are. I am just not the biggest fan of the look of the main open world area. It doesn't really fit Sonic.

Before Sonic Frontiers was revealed as open world I was more hoping for basically an official version of this Sonic open world fan game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1CEN5gVs5Q&ab_channel=NyFoNyfoun

Liking this more each time I see it. I am now very cautiously optimistic.

Looks like Sonic Lost World on 3DS.
Not bad, looks at least promising, no hype.
