Sonic 4-Esque Physics Anomaly Discovered in Generations

Sonic 4-Esque Physics Anomaly Discovered in Generations

…Uh Oh

To be fair, when people deliberately go looking for glitches, anomalies, and the like, more often than not they will find what they are looking for.

What we’re about to show you may be no different, but still may be of concern for the most discriminating Sonic fans, especially those still reeling from Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I.  It was found by scener 1stKirbyever, and it’s at the very end of the clip below.  As several videos from Sonic 4 also demonstrate, Classic Sonic speeds up a hill, and comes to a stop…right in the middle of the incline, defying gravity.

We wouldn’t point it out if it weren’t such a sticking point for so many veteran Sonic fans with Sonic 4–fans who, to this point, have generally been satisfied with how Generations controls.  There’s also this caveat: The anomaly is from the Green Hill Zone demo released in June, from a still early build of the game, and is subject to change.  Of course, many fans will argue that same song and dance was performed when anomalies like this were seen in the infamous PartnerNET leak of Sonic 4 last year, with little changed in the end.
