With Sonic Generations’ demo now out for the massive scrutiny and pleasure of Sonic fans on most of the globe (sorry, Japanese PSN users), we thought we’d steal a page from Sonic Boom and start our own Time Attack challenge for the demo stage.
Now, at Sonic Boom, the best time on record was about 54 seconds. Scorching! However, site moderator Chimpo just could not let that stand and, after many attempts and botched maneuvers, scored the commendable time above of 0:51.86.
Now it’s time for you to smoke through Green Hill Zone in the demo. Can you beat Chimpo’s time? If you do, please post a photo and, please, no hack-assisted times. Let’s try and keep this fun for everyone. Don’t think we’ve not seen those Sonic 4 leaderboards!
Where is the demo for American PSN owners? I am unable to find it. Help?
It doesn’t look to be up yet. Perhaps in a few hours? Right now, it looks to be Xbox Live Gold users only in the U.S.
God, Sony, why you gotta be so slow?
ah. Does this consist of only Classic Sonic, or wad Destructiod right and also contains Modern Sonic?
It’s Classic Sonic only as expected.
I’ve got 59: 64. I thought that was a great time, haha.
Close. I’m getting 0.59.04 🙂
1:43 i need to imporve drasticly man
“imporve” your spelling first, please.
haha ok, I shall improve my spelling
Forget time-attacking, how does Generations actually play?? Is this really as close as it can be to Genesis without actually being Genesis?
If You’re The Kind Of Person I Think You Are, Someone Who Likes The Genesis, Then You Will Love This! It’s Truly Amazing!
Why do you capitalize every word?
Anyways, what Brolinman says is true. It’s what Sonic 4 should have been. A shame that a game with such a name is being eclipsed by almost every Sonic game to come after it.
I’m gonna go hibernate for a week until I can download it.
You know, hedgehog style.
I just downloaded the demo, I’m a bit dissapointed that you don’t get to play as modern Sonic but hey ho. I have some problems with this demo which I’m sure other people have already noticed. 1. Sonics jump feels awkward (like he weights about 4 tonnes) 2. You cant roll into a ball when you bounce off a spring. They’re my only problems Sega, which shouldn’t be too hard for you to fix.
Apart from that good job.
Oh and the spin dash is massivly overpowered no matter how little you charge it.
Haha, i’m downloading the demo right now. Can’t wait to explore GHZ. 🙂
How in the hell do you get 51 seconds? I’ve played the demo a dozen times and the fastest I think I’ve gotten is 1:21.
Good knowledge of the map, spin dashing like a mo-fo, and exploiting the physics of the game at opportune times to great large rocket jumps that help you bounce off enemies.
You know, like the old days.
i completed the stage within 53:11 wish i could show u proof 😛
New king of the hill here at 46.64 http://i1083.photobucket.com/albums/j389/Kaze_Okami/4db85441.jpg
Jesus Christ, man!
im still trying to get it under 50 secs 😛
Has anyone else been able to find the PSN demo? I’m sorry if I sound like I’m begging or whatever, but I would just really like to play Generations.
Ive managed to reach 48 seconds but only once. Its the start that gives me the most trouble. I can never seem to time my jumps right to bounce off the badniks up to the higher route. Still ive been improving all day. I started at 1:16 and have just been working my way down since. Ill keep going till I can hit 46 😀
Umm, does anyone else agree with me that the graphics aren’t that good? You could only download the game at 720p anyway….hopefully the full game will have 1080p. Because Sonic Colors has better graphics than Generations right now… :/
I live in the US and it says I have to have a gold membership to play the demo…what bullcrap, does anyone else have this problem?
Do you have the Gold or Silver membership? If you have only Silver, you’ll have to likely wait a week to download the demo. I believe you also need to be at least 18, but I could be wrong about the last part.
I figured it out thanks (:
I just singed up for a new account and it gives you a month of gold free.
No problem! 🙂
Damn I just can’t seem to top 1:04 o.o
I just scraped past Chimpo’s time with 0:51:80
I might upload it later, but what I’m more concerned with is capturing an instant death-glitch on camera.
I’ve had the glitch happen to me twice in the same spot actually. It’s reproducable.
Damn I just can’t seem to top 1:04 o.o
20 mins later: K I got 54 seconds 😀 I’ll try some more later. http://m1214.photobucket.com/albumview/albums/NanoJX/e68cb805.jpg.html?src=www&action=view¤t=e68cb805.jpg&evt=user_media_share
i just got 47.71, this stuff is hard!
Make that 46.87 😀
Wait, so you have to have an account that’s Gold AND it has to be 18 or older?! Dammit, Microsoft…
It’s not as good as the other times people have managed, but I got my 0’50”40 record on video.
And here’s my 45:92, even though I think I can shave off some more time, any way, enjoy =D
Fastest I could get is 1 minute exactly, I don’t have proof though…
0:48.50, I made an error at the end trying to spindash so I’ll keep on shooting to get lower.
45.42!!! Back on top baby! http://i1083.photobucket.com/albums/j389/Kaze_Okami/3801b568.jpg
44:55, and I know i can shave this a little more =D
Now that’s how you destroy a level. Nice work as always.
You guys suck….<50 seconds? Fuck….how do you do it? @_@
I have 55.99 seconds exactly.
My best is 0:53:87 I started playing today so there is a lot of things to improve.
My best time is 48.28.
Yeah, it’s been beat… Note how he got a boost at 00:04.
got a 52: 42 that’s a one off
