Upcoming Sonic Generations Chemical Plant Zone Level Revealed

Sonic-Generations-Chemical-Plant-Zone-Level-RevealedWe all fondly remember the cold November of 1992, as we set our eyes upon the Chemical Plant Zone for the first time. Nearly twenty years later, Sega are reviving the iconic purple chemical filled stage in their upcoming Sonic Generations, but how does it compare?

If you haven't already played the demo version of Sonic Generations or seen video footage from previous stages, the upcoming game features a blend of 2D and 3D gameplay options spanning multiple stages from older Sonic games.

The demo version which was made available last month featured a playable level of the remastered Green Hill Zone. While the physics on Sonic himself weren't great, the visuals were an incredible retelling of the era of gaming we know and love.

While we await the release of the upcoming Sonic celebration (and live in hope that the physics on Sonic have been amended), a new video featuring gameplay footage of Chemical Plant Zone and City Escape (Sonic Adventure 2) has surfaced to keep us entertained.

It looks great. Just imagine what kids with the Genesis would have thought back then?

So excited for this! Any speculations for other levels to be revealed?

I'm hoping for :

Sky Sanctuary zone - Sonic & knuckles
Twinkle Park - Sonic Adventure
Lava Reef Zone - Sonic & Knuckles
Mystic Cave Zone - Sonic 2
Ice Cap Zone - Sonic 3
Scrap Brain Zone - Sonic 1

Quoting TroublePup:
Lava Reef Zone - Sonic & Knuckles
Ice Cap Zone - Sonic 3

These alone I'd love to see, just so I could hear more modern remixes of the music :)

... Not to be a "debbie downer" but...

1. I agree, the physics are atrocious. Does that mean they'll be fixed? Not necessarily... (Sonic 4 - Part 1, I'm looking at you).
2. That classic spider-grabbing thing is WAY too big! o.O Not to be nit-picky, but seriously.
3. Sonic looks far too small during the blue ball spot. I understand why, the camera zoomed out, which is a nice effect, I guess, but... the huge scale differences really look awkward to me... Yet somehow it doesn't at 1:40, just the first time it comes around. Weird...
4. Is the song from City Escape different than the Dreamcast one? ... Either way, I don't really like it. I thought it was supposed to be much more "rocky" and guitar-driven.
Gripes put aside, the game looks amazing graphically. I really love the transitions from 2D into 3D as well. It has serious potential, I just don't want to see it butchered...

Looks great, but I do agree with Nightowljrm, Sonic does look a tad small in certain parts of the footage.

This looks amazing! I REALLY hope this comes out on PC as rumoured. If not, I'll be buying a 3DS.
