I agree the game is too slow and its so hard to do that light ring dash(or whatever its called) when going at full speed. However, the demo was kinda fun and I did manage to beat the level in 1:19.something. Also I heard this demo was based on a very early build and the final game should have most of its problems fixed.

DAMN the Sonic demo sucks ass like crazy! The music is some of the worst ever! The camera moves incredibly slow, the control sucks, the homing attack is overly relied upon and works poorly, it is boring and I certainly will not buy this game.

I wasn't very impressed with the Sonic demo.

The camera was slow and the controls felt off, I don't know how many times I fell off that damn bridge. I could have sworn in other Sonic games I had controls over myself mid-flight.

Unless I hear there are some great improvements, Sonic is finally dead.

Edit: The Lego Star Wars demo is hella fun though.

The bridge honestly didn't give me that many problems. I just stopped at the rings turned around and dashed across them(after my second try).

Anyone else try out PSU? I'm not liking how you fight level 15 enemies right off the bat.
