Make no bones about it, however, it's far more than just the glitches shown in this video. You also have to contend with some of the worst controls in gaming, poor animation, ugly graphics, an insipid plot, and countless other issues.

I had hoped to cover other things in this video, such as the vast differences between versions of the game shown at tradeshows and how the game manual references a fairly large number of things that aren't actually present or functional in the game. On top of that, this video was made with me barely even playing half the levels in the game - I went through Sonic's levels but almost completely ignored Shadow and Silver. Unfortunately, 11 minutes is all I have and there are no plans to make a sequel video (please, don't make me play this game any more ;_;).

If you want to see full, unedited footage of this game, be sure to check the video I made as a precursor to this one:
