    bigthecat got a reaction from UltraGizmo64 in Was Generations Rushed?   
    Ok now I'm confused again. I thought when using Super Sonic in modern green hill, the scenery around the goal ring will be bursting with flowers in bloom, which I assumed was a reference to Sonic 1's good ending (where flowers appear as the emeralds vanish).
    But I just tried it with regular Sonic and the flowers were there anyway! I must be really unobservant...

    So yeah, now I'm none the wiser what Hogfather was on about either!

    I have a suspicion that they were made for promotional reasons only, mainly due to the fact within the context/mechanics of the game, both Sonics are never in a stage at the same time. I know the cutscene where both Sonics run past Tails near the start suggests otherwise, but consider this. Ignoring the fact we play the acts as different Sonics separately, it's still probably not the case that within the context of the story both Sonics are doing their own stages simultaneously. In fact it seems that both acts of the same stage tell a mini-story in some cases (eg. Rooftop Run : Modern Sonic is bombed with spike barrels by the airship, then Classic Sonic destroys the airship. City Escape : the truck isn't visibly destroyed at the end of Modern Sonic's act, but is clearly trashed at the end of Classic's.)
    I'm rambling a bit now, but is this making any sense? I reckon the CG sequences are meant just to showcase the differences in appearance and moves of both Sonics side by side in as little airtime as possible. However the exception to this is the cutscene of the Time Eater's appearance in Green Hill with all 4 characters, that looks like a scene that could be missing from the final game.



    Maybe someone on the team thought it would be funny/nostalgic/self-referential? It's certainly not the first time we've heard something like this. Some examples :
    "Get a load of this!"
    "You know what they say, the more the merrier!"
    "Hold still, you devil!"
    "It's no use! Take this!"
    And any quote from Heroes when you switch team mates over and over and over...


    But it tells you how to access the statue room in the (Euro) manual, so I doubt Sega intended to keep the existence of the room a secret. It's just the codes that they want to keep hidden until they're ready to give them out.


    ....wait, what?
    I'll have to check this out myself....

    EDIT : Tried it, haha, that's awesome! I noticed you don't have to be transformed into Super Sonic, just have the skill equipped and the level changes.
    Do any other levels change like this if you have Super Sonic on??

    On it's own merit as a platformer, I'd say it stands up. When done well, Sonic games have all had fast-paced platforming (well not very fast, but still faster then Mario), that's unique and different, and this game delivers that in spades. This game (for the Modern half anyway) also works in break-neck speed sections into the mix, and while it may feel a little jarring, is still a rush, and this game uses it effectively, in short bursts. As for the Classic side of things, while it is not 100% accurate, momentum still plays a role, and bouncing off enemies returns. And of course, both types of platforming flow well and are well designed. So yes, IMO, as a platformer, I think it stands up.

    Personally I think the classic and dreamcast eras were great to play as both Sonics fairly evenly, but the modern era I found way more enjoyable to play through as classic Sonic than modern.
    Crisis City seemed to be more frustrating than it needed to be (for modern Sonic), Planet Wisp has its problems for both classic and modern Sonic, although Rooftop Run I found to be great all round (although I prefer classic over modern, if only for the music).
    So yeah, while I wouldn't say the modern era's stages are bad per se, I can totally see why people would think they're the weak link in the chain compared to the other two eras.
