After taking Silver around, we tried out some traditional Sonic speeding. He runs forward, able to ricochet off walls, enemies and speed bumpers floating in the sky. It was fast, but his speed actually made handling the hedgehog a hassle. Sonic's midair attacks let you juggle him from monster to robot to platform, but once you touch the ground... ugh. Hopefully this gets fixed.
We tested out the PS3 version, but expect the Xbox 360 game to go toe-to-toe with it, visuals and all.
