Setting Fire to Generations’ Green Hill Zone: Post Your Best Times

With Sonic Generations’ demo now out for the massive scrutiny and pleasure of Sonic fans on most of the globe (sorry, Japanese PSN users), we thought we’d steal a page from Sonic Boom and start our own Time Attack challenge for the demo stage.

Now, at Sonic Boom, the best time on record was about 54 seconds. Scorching! However, site moderator Chimpo just could not let that stand and, after many attempts and botched maneuvers, scored the commendable time above of 0:51.86.

Now it’s time for you to smoke through Green Hill Zone in the demo. Can you beat Chimpo’s time? If you do, please post a photo and, please, no hack-assisted times. Let’s try and keep this fun for everyone. Don’t think we’ve not seen those Sonic 4 leaderboards!

      It doesn’t look to be up yet. Perhaps in a few hours? Right now, it looks to be Xbox Live Gold users only in the U.S.
      God, Sony, why you gotta be so slow?

    Forget time-attacking, how does Generations actually play?? Is this really as close as it can be to Genesis without actually being Genesis?

      If You’re The Kind Of Person I Think You Are, Someone Who Likes The Genesis, Then You Will Love This! It’s Truly Amazing!

        Why do you capitalize every word?

        Anyways, what Brolinman says is true. It’s what Sonic 4 should have been. A shame that a game with such a name is being eclipsed by almost every Sonic game to come after it.

    I’m gonna go hibernate for a week until I can download it.

    I just downloaded the demo, I’m a bit dissapointed that you don’t get to play as modern Sonic but hey ho. I have some problems with this demo which I’m sure other people have already noticed. 1. Sonics jump feels awkward (like he weights about 4 tonnes) 2. You cant roll into a ball when you bounce off a spring. They’re my only problems Sega, which shouldn’t be too hard for you to fix.
    Apart from that good job.

      Oh and the spin dash is massivly overpowered no matter how little you charge it.

    Haha, i’m downloading the demo right now. Can’t wait to explore GHZ. 🙂

    How in the hell do you get 51 seconds? I’ve played the demo a dozen times and the fastest I think I’ve gotten is 1:21.

    • Reply

      Good knowledge of the map, spin dashing like a mo-fo, and exploiting the physics of the game at opportune times to great large rocket jumps that help you bounce off enemies.
      You know, like the old days.

    Has anyone else been able to find the PSN demo? I’m sorry if I sound like I’m begging or whatever, but I would just really like to play Generations.

  • Reply

    Ive managed to reach 48 seconds but only once. Its the start that gives me the most trouble. I can never seem to time my jumps right to bounce off the badniks up to the higher route. Still ive been improving all day. I started at 1:16 and have just been working my way down since. Ill keep going till I can hit 46 😀

  • Reply

    Umm, does anyone else agree with me that the graphics aren’t that good? You could only download the game at 720p anyway….hopefully the full game will have 1080p. Because Sonic Colors has better graphics than Generations right now… :/

    I live in the US and it says I have to have a gold membership to play the demo…what bullcrap, does anyone else have this problem?

    • Reply

      Do you have the Gold or Silver membership?  If you have only Silver, you’ll have to likely wait a week to download the demo.  I believe you also need to be at least 18, but I could be wrong about the last part.

        I figured it out thanks (:
        I just singed up for a new account and it gives you a month of gold free.

    I just scraped past Chimpo’s time with 0:51:80

    I might upload it later, but what I’m more concerned with is capturing an instant death-glitch on camera.

    I’ve had the glitch happen to me twice in the same spot actually. It’s reproducable.
