Sega Shows Off A Classic Sonic Level As Part Of 'Sonic Forces'

Okay, I'm just going to say this: the less we speak about all the Sonic The Hedgehog games not produced for the Genesis, the better. I know there's a fanbase for them, even the terrible ones where you basically fly into a wall and get stuck there for eternity, but for the rest of us it has become difficult to trust Sega when it comes to Sonic, even when you get slightly decent trailers like the one for Sonic Forces.


Today, Sega Europe released a small bit of gameplay that gives us diehard old-school fans some hope. Below is a complete run of the first Green Hill Zone level from the first Sonic game in 1991. There's a little bit of creative license with the enemies and a bit of the level itself in terms of accuracy down to the placement of each golden ring. But who honestly cares about the tiniest of details when this actually looks like a Sonic The Hedgehog game! There are no details attached, like when we can actually expect the game beyond "Holiday 2017," but it's still cool to check out.
