Classic City Escape Gamescom Footage

by August 17, 2011

Nothing we haven’t seen before – or is it?

Gametrailers has posted the above cam footage of the entire Classic City Escape stage – and while we’ve all seen the level itself before, what I think is notable about this footage is that it may be showcasing an updated version of the game. Maybe it’s just my eyes playing tricks on me, but Classic Sonic’s jumping physics look considerably improved to me.

Classic Sonic’s jumping physics in last month’s demo felt kind of sluggish, making precision jumps a little awkward. Going by visual cues alone, Classic Sonic in this video seems like he’s perhaps a bit easier to steer while in mid-air – though without having the controller in my own hands, it’s basically impossible to say for certain one way or the other.

What do you guys think? Do they look improved to you? Do they need to be improved? Post a comment and let us know.
