Guess the Sonic Generations Stages

Post by Esrever »

So, it's official: the next Sonic title will be reusing paying homage to previous levels from throughout the Sonic series. So far, the only confirmed stage is Green Hill Zone, but apparently we can expect to see returning levels from the classics, the dreamcast era, and from modern Sonic games.

So what the heck... I think we should have a little fun with this. What levels do you think will appear in Sonic Generations? Let's all guess now, before they announce any more of them. I want to know which one of us is the best at thinking like Sonic Team. (Although that's not necessarily something you want to brag about.)


OBEY THE RULES

- Pick the 7 stages (other than Green Hill Zone) you think are most likely to appear in Sonic Generations and post your picks here in this thread.
(For the sake of a level playing field, No more than 7. It'd be too easy to get them right if you can have a million picks!)

- If you change your mind, you are allowed to revise your picks up until the day a second stage is confirmed. But once a second stage is confirmed (whenever that may be), all picks are final and no new entries will be accepted!
(If you do change your picks, please do so in a new post rather than editing your original, so we can judge you for being wishy washy.)

- The person (or people) with the greatest number of correct picks wins.

- A fabulous no-prize will be awarded to the winner.


Remember... this is the 7 stages you THINK will appear, not the 7 stages you WANT to appear. GO TEAM

I think I heard somewhere that Crush 40 were asked to re-record Escape from the City, so I'm betting City Escape (I wouldn't actually mind it either). My full list:

Labyrinth
Spring Yard
Casino Night
Ice Cap
Emerald Coast
City Escape
Hang Castle

I know I put two casino levels, but as far as I'm concerned one of them HAS to be in there.
While thinking of these I realised that, given how good the GHZ looks in what we've seen, there are lots of levels I'd really love to see that probably won't make the cut. Launch Base Zone for one.

[EDIT] PPA, you need to say which Ice Cap you mean!

Laaaaaame. This allows for anyone to go back and change their original picks once they read somebody's post and go "gah, of course!"

That's true! I guess I'm trying to avoid giving an advantage to people who wait until everyone else picks before making their decision... this way, everyone has a chance to take other people's responses into consideration, instead of just the folks who pick last.

But let's say if you do want to change a pick, you have to do it in a new post, rather than editing your original one, for MAXIMUM SHAME.

Here's my picks!

Starlight (S1)
Metropolis (S2)
Ice Cap (S3)
Sky Sanctuary (S&K)
Windy Valley (SA1)
Radial Highway (SA2)
Casino Park/Bingo Highway (Heroes)

as I was coming up a list I realized I only had representation from the first two eras of the three promised. What the fuck stages would they include from the post SA era and who the hell wants to play them? Why would anyone want to play stages from the generally recognized "era of terrible games"?

Just because the themes of the levels are based off of Heroes/Unleashed/Colors (and even Shadow/06, but that's a risky move) doesn't mean the level design is. I'd certainly like a go at a traditional platformer version of Egg Fleet. That being said, I feel like the balance will be skewed toward the earlier end of the spectrum.

My barely-thought-up list:

Chemical Plant (S2)
Ice Cap (S3)
Stardust Speedway (SCD)
Lost World (SA1)
City Escape (SA2)
Casino Park (Heroes)
Spagonia (Unleashed)

I guess I just assumed there wouldn't be any stages from Unleashed, since we've already seen those levels in the Hedgehog engine. But I suppose I could be wrong... not doing a "classic Sonic" spin on a stage from that game might be a missed opportunity! I do think they'll steer clear of 2006, though.

I ALMOST picked Casino Night as my choice for Sonic 2! But my gut tells me Casino Park is the likeliest option from Heroes, and I can't see them going with two Casino levels. It was a HARD CHOICE, though.

At least one of these I would NOT want to see back.

Ice Cap Zone (Sonic 3)
Stardust Speedway (Sonic CD)
Windy Valley (Sonic Adventure)
Casino Park (Sonic Heroes)
Kingdom Valley (Sonic '06)

I noticed most people were neglecting underwater zones. The most obvious is Hydrocity Zone which, for me, will always be the defining level of Sonic 3, but I think I agree with the people above that Ice Cap is more likely. So that leaves Aquatic Ruin and Labyrinth, and Aquatic Ruin is pretty unlikely, so Labyrinth it is.

Both Speed Highway and Emerald Coast are more iconic than Windy Valley, but GHZ and Stardust Speedway are too similar to those two thematically, and I can definitely see the new team having some fun with Windy Valley's mountain village aesthetic.

Huh? Were there tw— oh wait, there was one in SA, wasn’t there? Although I did state Ice Cap Zone, so which one I was referring to shouldn’t be in question. :V

- Sky Sanctuary Zone
- Stardust Speedway
- Sky Deck (why the hell not?)
- Ice Cap Zone (Sonic 3)

...Although I would love to see how Wacky Workbench, Collision Chaos, or Spring Yard would be handed as updated 2.5D stages.

Gasp! You cheaters. City Escape is pretty much confirmed what with that one singer saying he did a new version of the music for the game.

- Chemical Plant Zone (Sonic 2)
- Lava Reef Zone (Sonic 3 & Knuckles)
- Death Egg Zone (likely the Sonic 3 & Knuckles version. It'll be the final level and you know it.)
- Twinkle Park (Sonic Adventure)
- Radical Highway (Sonic Adventure 2)
- Spagonia (Sonic Unleashed)
- Planet Wisp (Sonic Colors)

I'm not so sure about the last two, but I can't think of any modern Sonic levels that would be worth including. Both Unleashed and Colors are still recent and they both use the same gameplay as Generations, which makes having levels from those games a bit redundant (moreso in Unleashed's case, due to it being on the same consoles as the new game). Then again, I can't remember anything nice from the other post-SA2 games, so...

Maybe that's their strategy- load the game up with mostly Unleashed and Colors stages, changing next to nothing. It's less work that way.
