Sonic Adventure 2 was the last Sonic game on a Sega system, the first to be ported to a Nintendo system, and what many consider the last great hurrah of the Sonic series. So it was no surprise when yesterday the first trailer for City Escape‘s inclusion in Sonic Generations came out. For those wondering how the level looks beyond the minute preview, once again Gamespot has come to your aid. Earlier today, the site’s live coverage of E3 showcased most of the level for both Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic, the classic being a delightful romp that is able to prove that classic Sonic can work in environments we’re not used to, and skateboard the only way one should – extreme and in the 90’s.
The Modern Sonic playthrough is also an effective homage to the original level, keeping many of the set pieces of the original Dreamcast level while keeping things fresh. And just look at the truck. It’s gone insane. No wonder Modern Sonic needs that boost…
All in all, the game looks like it’s still shaping up to be something special. Thanks to Dusk Golem for putting these segments of the stream up on YouTube, and later on we’ll update when Gamespot uploads their copy of the stream, which also includes footage from Green Hill.
