The only real thing I dislike about Episode II currently are the zone names- they're just not very... Sonicky?? Is that a word? So far we've got Sylvanian Families Zone and I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas Zone- they need to start spicing things up, this is is Sonic, a series well known for having awesome and wacky title card names. So far they've been very obvious.


I agree. We need more creative names like Green Hill, Chemical Plant, Ice Cap, and Mushroom Hill.


Chemical Plant is the only one original out of those.

Green Hill: A green hilly place.
Ice Cap: Ummmm.... theres freaking ice caps everywhere.
Mushroom Hill: A hilly place with mushrooms.

Im all for original names, but the classics wernt always original with there names either.

Maybe I'm reading into him to much, but I think he was being facetious.

I don't mind White Park, nor do I mind any Color Place Zone names. Sylvania Castle is just weird though. Why not just call it... Forest Castle? That's not to say there hasn't been more weridly named zones.

THAT'S the only zone of which I am feeling odd about. After the explination of what Sylvania means im better with it, but I don't feel thats a Sonic zone due to the name.

Be familiar with your own goddamn planet.

It's seriously ticking me off how narrow-minded people are. Hell, how is it we know about Apotos being Myokonos if we don't catch the even more obvious Transylvania pun?

From Wikipedia:
Sylvania literally means "forest land" in Latin. The term can be used in a variety of contexts:

It has nothing to do with Dracula land.

Are you sure about that?

We did catch it. A while ago...

Anyway, does anyone get the feeling they named it that simply because they were really trying to avoid using any "rehashed" names/words like 'hill' or 'forest'? Perhaps they were just trying hard to be unique, in case people are turned off by reused names. Personally though, I think Forest Castle Zone would have been fine. White Park seems cool too, though to avoid using a color, they could have used something like Frigid Park, or Snow Park etc.

Sonic Zone names aren;t exactly known for their originality historically, I think we've established this by now. =P For what it's worth, I don't think the ones we've heard of for 4 are that bad, albiet Sylvanian Families does keep springing to mind for Sylvania Castle...
