    Released tomorrow for 400 points and features online co-op.

    I remember the versus races being a giggle but the co-op was very lame! Player 2 plays as Tails who is invincible but the screen always stays fixed on Sonic. If Tails wanders off too far he helicopters back to the screen - which is useless if Sonic is travelling at speed!

    Here are the achievments:

    Emerald Hill 5
    Clear the Emerald Hill Zone 1.

    Fast Emerald 15
    Beat Emerald Hill Zone 1 in under 35 seconds in single-player or co-op mode.

    Fast Chemical 20
    Beat Chemical Plant Zone 1 in under 45 seconds.

    Casino 10
    Get to the Casino Night Zone.

    Super Sonic 20
    Become Super Sonic.

    Extended Super 20
    Stay in Super Sonic mode for one minute.

    Chaos Emerald 10
    Get one Chaos Emerald.

    Chaos Master 40
    Get all the Chaos Emeralds.

    Conquering Time 10
    Beat the game in under an hour.

    All Multiplayer 5
    Play all four multiplayer zones.

    Xbox Live Racer 10
    Win 10 versus zones on Xbox Live.

    Win 35
    Beat the game.

    Looking forward to this one, classic platforming at its finest, will be interesting to see how the co-op works too.

    I notice in the achievements there's something called 'Super Sonic', and that you have to stay in this mode for 1 minute.

    Having never completed the game, or having the instructions for it, as I got it second hand as a cart only for my megadrive, I've never come across this? Could someone explain super sonic to me?

    Thanks

    You collect all chaos emeralds and then having collected 50 (I think) rings and jumping you become Super Sonic (yellow, more or less invincible). Your rings count down whilst in this mode though, hence why staying as him for 1 minute is actually a challenge!

    Can someone confirm that it is definitely online co-op? Has anyone tried it yet?

    Well the option is there on the menu, so presumably it doesn't lead to a screen that says "Haha! Fooled you!" :rolleyes:

    Actually ignore that, I've misunderstood the question. It appears online is only versus, not co-op. I'd forgotten the main 2 player mode wasn't a co-op one. D'oh.

    Collect 50 rings, then run through the little beacon things dotted around the stage (that you will restart from if you die) - stars will appear above it. Jump through them, and you're in a mini game...complete that and you get the emerald.

    Blimey this brings back some memories. Brought a grin to my face playing this one over the weekend.

    Next sonic 3 (and sonic and knuckles - those two carts fitted together to create one uber sonic game if I remember rightly) please Mr. Sega.

    This got a 9/10 review from Eurogamer. Let's hope we see a return to Sega's glory days with current games.

    Oh yes, that would be AWESOME!!!

    I doubt it though, as the it's one game that has been missing from all the compilation games on all the formats in the past.

    It has a lot of real CD audio and works out quite large for a live Arcade game.

    OK, I am struggling with collecting the emeralds.

    Does anyone know if any of the old cheats will work on this?

    They were all based around the Sound Test mode which you can't get to in this, so presumably not :(

    I noticed you still haven't got them. If you're still struggling, try this:

    Everytime you enter the special stage, save the game. Then, when you get past round 1 of the special stage, save again. If you fail, just reload the save. Since the layout will be the same, it's only a matter of time before you 'learn' the layout. And only play with Sonic (not tails with you) - not only do you require less rings to complete, but tails doesn't constantly keep gettng hit, thus loosing you rings.

    Has anyone done the 'Fast Chemical' achievement? You have to beat Chemical Plant Zone 1 in under 45 seconds. Is it even possible?! I would consider myself to be a bit of a Sonic guru, but this one is kicking my ass!

    Any hints would be appreciated! :thumbsup:
