    Woah, see the similarities? You have the cool-headed guys [Goku and Sonic[, the 'im a badass' guys [Shadow and Vegeta] and the ones from the future [Trunks and Silver]. And this is further supported by the 7 Chaos Emeralds/7 Dragon balls. Hell, look at their hair styles, they scream similarites as well :O

    Don't forget the gold tint and aura when he goes Super Sonic =P I always wondered about that, and I guess I learned from SSJ3 Goku

    Said creator is not involved in the series anymore, and that is one of maybe 3 reasons why I hope this game flops horribly, and this is coming from someone who enjoyed almost all the games so far >_>

    New character, typical Sega style; added into a new game and just left there to go with a new plot not in the other titles. Hes from TEH FUTURE, so that means he's like really good. He will probably be a shallow peice of shit character like Shadow is.

    This cliche happend with Shadow, Blaze, now Silver.

    Wrong! The first Sonic the Hedgehog game came out 2 years after DBZ first aired in Japan (1989). Sonic came out in 1991. :amazed

    Sonic the Hedgehog release date (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_the_Hedgehog_(16-bit))

    Dragon Ball Z anime air date (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_ball_z)

    His debut will apparently be in "Sonic Rivals", which is due in Q4 2006 in the US. Game looks interesting; shame that it's a PSP only release.

    Actually, Silvers first game chronologically if you will is Sonic the Hedgehog 360/PS3, which is then followed by Sonic Rivals seeing as Sonic 360/PS3 explains why he's in Sonic's time.

    >_> So? Naruto was inspired by DBZ.. The fact that Naruto wears orange and has blonde spikey hair... Sasuke wears dark blue (Like Vegeta).. Masashi Kishimoto said to himself that it was inspired by DBZ..

    Same with One Piece.. Infact DBZ inspires alot of stuff.. I wouldn't say it's ripping..

    Well, the 2D goings were and are still strong. I can guarentee 1/3 of this new Sonic game for the 360/PS3 will blow, because they are going to use prettier elements from Shadow the Hedgehog, effortlessly the worst Sonic game of all time. The fact they replaced toe boring Knuckles/Rouge moments with a psychic moment isn't going to help either.

    I've played worse. Sonic Riders/Rivals both sucked more. Shadow had shitty controls and way to short. If they work on that and make it more adventure feel = good. This one so far looks good though since you play with 3 different people i'm afriad one will suck :cry

    Riders was just a difficult game, F-Zero GX like hard. It was pretty fun once you mastered it, because it really did have a very interesting concept. I can not name one thing that has impressed me with this title. Hell, they fucking ruined EGGMAN for shits sake.

    Who doesn?t like? I?m tiered of reading people around here just criticising dragon ball this dragon ball that, just powerups, like there was something better, in Japan most of mangakas and videogame producers are inspired by dragon ball, and I don?t think they hate dragon ball as much as I see people hating here.

    That shot of Silver picking up the car with telekinesis reminds me of "Destroy All Humans." I loved that game.

    Ehh...no.

    I really hate how a lot of people critisize Dragon Ball. Fact is, most of us got into anime because of Dragon Ball Z. A lot of anime and manga tribute to Dragon Ball in some way or another, and this is just one of 'em.

    And just for the record, Sonic also parodied the Death Star too..

    Someone enlighten me on this, why was his name changed from Dr. Robotnik to Eggman? I mean I know he looks like an Egg, but I thought eggman was just a derrogitory thing sonic came up with, not an official name for him.

    Anyway yeah, no big surprise there, almost all anime and manga somewhat take ideas from DB/DBZ, and ALL Shounen manga does (give or take like 1 or 2). Plus Sonic Team has admited it many a times.
