No it's not, it's this meme that started some unwarranted bash on classic Sonic. The game rewards you with speed if you manage to achieve high-level play, maintaining momentum depending on your actions. It's not the point, it's a consequence.
>>323702404 sonic is about momentum and even if you were too stupid to press up/down you could still get past it with just jumping at the right time >>323704402 >>323703079 the only really bad fight was the centipede >>323704627 i'm pretty sure they show a broken one during the intro or preview demos it also shows on the map that you can get their somehow do you blame bad design in a puzzle game if you can't solve the puzzle?
>>323701985 It's the very first instance, not only the game but the series, in which you actually have to use the Up button to progress and there isn't even a clear indication to do so. That's bad game design, nigga
>>323703560 This is only the case in sonic 1 and ironically some of the more recent and overall bad 2D sonic games
more or less every sonic level in 2/3 has large parts where you just hold right (or nothing at all) and get boosted like chemical plant, ice cap and flying battery inbetween parts where you have to stop and jump between some platforms or something before another hold right segment
the ones that seriously deviate from this are also the ones that tend to annoy the shit out of people like stage 3 in sonic 2 and sand zone in sonic 3
>>323703560 >>323705872 Except there's still forced momentum breakers at high skill levels and the game expects and forces you to know the levels's layout ahead of time and to have already beaten it to be able to go fast.
The adventure games still have a skillgap, without nearly as much forced momentum breakers, and actually allow you to react to shit without having to know it's there ahead of time since it's 3d and you are looking ahead.
>>323706495 >the game expects and forces you to know the levels's layout ahead of time and to have already beaten it to be able to go fast. Yeah, and? You want to go fast so you git gud, there's your motivation. If you could just blow through all the levels the first time there wouldn't be much replay value. I guess gen 8 is marketed towards people like you.
>>323701985 >a nigger who hasnt played this level >>323702404 this guy and anon get it, everyone who's ever played through this game knows how bad this was. when i looked it up years ago i found jokes about it before i found an answer.
