I wish I could change more in the settings than resolution. With this gross laptop it runs...okay, with a little input lag. Biggest problem with that so far has been Spacial Stages and
I'm not crazy about how flying feels, but I guess I'll have to wait until the XBLA version is released to play it as it's meant to be played. Ugh, I need to just bite the bullet and get a new computer, probably by summer's end, before this one fries itself.
Yeah, I was surprised at what the game required to run smoothly. Winter Carnival Act 3, or Act 2 (I think it was 3), was murdering me. The point where you have Tails swim you through the spike obstacles, and then the robots that make giant frozen bubbles ... I wanted to kill something. Probably easy without input lag, but my god, the first robots -- if you don't get there fast enough -- can make a solid wall that you can't bypass, and you have no choice but to drown. Surely a bug.
I ragequitted, and went back and I was able to play Oil Desert Zone. That was really cool, and I definitely appreciate how we still utilize saves, rather than go old school with the Sonic 1 / Sonic 2 method and have to endure playing through the entire game while attempting to keep all your lives.
And, question on controls .. is this game utilizing 3 buttons (not talking about Super Sonic activation) to play through the levels? If so, I'm not a fan of that. What happened to simplicity?
