I’ve never experienced it. I refuse to cheat but also I can’t get those last 8 emblems. The game is hard to the point of being extremely unfair, not helped by some terrible auto camera at points in the game. Having seen videos though, it does seem like an odd addition just due to the way the level is designed for the 3D space. Im more interested to know that, out of everyone who has experienced it, who didn’t cheat? It’s basically near impossible to unlock. I never had an issue with all 130 emblems in Sonic Adventure (DX).
