Sonic Heroes Demo

A demo for Sonic Heroes is now available, allowing the chance to sample the upcoming return of the hyperactive hedgehog and company in the works at Sega. Word is "In this demo the first team stage 'Seaside Hill' is open and the save function has been disabled." The 142 MB demo is available on GameSpot (registration required), and mirrored on 3D Gamers, FileFront, JustGamers, and Worthplaying.

This doesn't seem to have changed at all from the console versions including labelling buttons as Z, Y, B and A. The graphics are very colourfull and so fast you barely have time to notice much else - but it does seem to be quite simply textured for the main part.

Switching between the 3 heroes on the fly is still confusing as the game runs so fast that you barely have time to look at the indicator to decide which one you want to tag in next. This also means that although it is essentially a very simple kids game the added control difficulty means it's probably aimed at 7-8 year olds.

This seems a bit of a shame as my 4 year old can do the running about bits!

What's the damn pont of disabling the save feature?
I hate it when they go cheap on demos- like if they only give you the tiniest taste, you will be begging for more.
Put out a solid demo, like Battlefield 1942 or Unreal Tournament 2004, that's un-watered down and impressive in it's own right.
That's what makes people go from demo to purchase.

Eh... not a chance in hell I would buy this game regardless of the demo anyways.
