[sp]Studiopolis's Hard Boiled Heavies boss fight [/sp] was some top tier shit.
I'm guessing you need to beat the game at least once to be able to use the unlockables like [sp]Super Peel-Out and Insta-Shield[/sp] that you get from the Bonus Stages.

I'm hoping they change that in the future, because it's pretty dumb to restrict them that way.

So how bad is the Switch version? I really want to pick it up on Switch for portability but if PS4 is the better version I'll grab that.
So I'm safe to say there is only a specific amount of Blue Sphere stages because I'm starting to get the ones I've failed. The Special Stages have been surprisingly easy to say, I'm only on #3 Chaos Emerald though. But they're doable compare to the Half-Pipe from Sonic 2. [QUOTE=The Civ;52576523]So how bad is the Switch version? I really want to pick it up on Switch for portability but if PS4 is the better version I'll grab that.[/QUOTE] Only problem I've had encounter is that the Home Button and Capture Button gets delayed by a second when you press it. Aside from that, and the bit of my controller disconnecting for some weird reason (it's not doing it anymore), looks good to me.
[QUOTE=The Civ;52576523]So how bad is the Switch version?

I've actually heard the PS4 version has a fair amount of bugs currently. Not sure how true that is.

[QUOTE=KnightRider25;52576611]The Special Stages have been surprisingly easy to say, I'm only on #3 Chaos Emerald though. But they're doable compare to the Half-Pipe from Sonic 2.[/QUOTE] It gets harder. The later special stages can kiss my ass.
[QUOTE=Rahu X;52576644]Besides the Home and Screenshot button issues, it plays great. I've actually heard the PS4 version has a fair amount of bugs currently. Not sure how true that is.[/QUOTE] I managed to find a way to fall off the Tornado twice in Mirage Saloon, but never when I actually tried to record it.
[QUOTE=GhostSonic;52576650]It gets harder. The later special stages can kiss my ass.[/QUOTE] I've had like, six tries at #4 and still no success. Actual platforming with tank turning is an absolute bitch.
Amazed how they managed to fuck up Oil Ocean Zone 2 boss again. Can't overstate how lives ruin this game, like all past Sonic games. You lose all your lives? Enjoy playing through Zone 1 AND 2 again.
Just focus on the turrets first before bothering to go for Robotnik GEEZ
Looks like they are aware of the Switch verison issues: [media]http://twitter.com/CFWhitehead/status/897417286260187137[/media]
Have not had any issues with the switch version
I've had a few oddities but I'm not sure if they're Switch specific. One in particular is the music dying at a few random moments, with the sound effects still working, but it fixes itself if I go into a bonus or special stage.
Stardust Speedway Boss was quite annoying, especially the first part of the battle. Tip: Drop-Dash is your best friend for this boss. Oh, and does Knuckles has his own stages and bosses? Or at least like very different layout.

Not sure if he gets entirely unique levels though, but [sp]Mirage Saloon's opening[/sp] heavily implies he'd get a unique act one, and [sp]Lava Reef Act Two is apparently the S&K Hidden Palace.[/sp]
Only minor issues I had with my Switch was going to the main menu and taking screenshots in handheld mode. Playing in docked seems to work fine, although there are cases when the button inputs are delayed a couple of seconds. Doesn't seem to impact all Switch consoles based on reports, but would be nice if it got fixed. I also had music stop while playing a level, happened in Green Hill Zone. Kinda made me scared because that was a pretty early first impression I got from the game.
I had one case in my PS4 version where I hit speed-up shoes and got an extra life at the same time in Flying Battery before its song really started, and I think that messed up the song loop because it just kept playing the speed-up song until I did a special stage.

I don't believe it's possible to send 18 x 18 x 25 cm 2.4 Kg box to Russia for ~4$. But we'll see, I don't have much choices anyway.[/QUOTE] [IMG]http://servmon.ru/screenshots/2017/08/chrome_2017-08-15_23-03-51_bg9gki9jlh.png[/IMG] I'm shocked. No tracking tho. :thinking:

Woah, did I just saw [sp]Nack the Weasle from Sonic Triple Trouble[/sp] in Mirage Saloon?
From the digital guide: the Hardboiled Heavies apparently have designated genders ([sp]Heavy Gunner, Heavy Shinobi and Heavy King are male while Heavy Magician and Heavy Rider are female[/sp])
I'm currently at Oil Ocean with 4 emeralds (I'm that bad) and I'm a bit worried there won't be enough time left for me to get the last 3 before I get to the last stage. Anyone have any tips for finding the special stage rings? I suck at finding them.
I dont understand the hate for the lives system, the older sonic games are designed for you replay again and again till you get good. If you add in a save state system then it becomes trivial to beat.

[QUOTE=RainbowStalin;52577175]I dont understand the hate for the lives system, the older sonic games are designed for you replay again and again till you get good. If you add in a save state system then it becomes trivial to beat.[/QUOTE] It's mostly a problem with the boss fights and certain zones. A few boss fights are kind of drawn out, while i've nearly timed out on certain zones. Getting a Game Over means having to do the entire zone over from scratch, which is especially annoying for some since I can see it happening in the final zone - which is so long that the final boss restarts the timer.
