I have no problem with the controls. I am pleasantly surprised that Sonic is as good as it is. I've played the demo several times and the only reason I have not bought it is the price.

Also I need to play through the 4 (Sonic 1,2,3 and Knuckles) original Sonic games on XBLA that I bought looong ago and never played.

Ok, I'm going to speak from the other side of the tracks. The controls are garbage. Moving quickly left to right is a bitch. The duck and boost is a pain in the ass is it always wants to set up in the incorrect direction.

The tilt controls in the bonus stages are a complete joke. For the 7 us dollars they want for the title, you think that they would have polished them up a bit.

Think Super Monkey Ball on the win7, which also has horrid controls.

The touch screen controls are usually hit or miss for me. For example, I typically don't have a problem... except in areas which require more precision (such as the large pits in Act 3 of the Casino Zone). Any difficulty with the controls is very unforgiving there.

On the other hand, I don't have any complaints about the tilt controls. I quite enjoy the special stages.

I find it strange that you had that experience. Maybe you keep your left thumb in a strange spot.

You can set the controls in special stages to swipe, which makes them much easier. I 200/200ed this game, which I could never do with the XBLA version due to the Untouchable Achievement being a lot harder in that version.

Congrats then. In the WP7 version, you can lock the screen when you die at Eggman and restart from whatever form you were on, so no need to redo the whole battle if you mess up.

What do you mean by lock the screen?

Edit: Nevermind, I just read the comment on the achievement itself.

I don't like the controls either. I only payed 2.99 for the game so for that price I will deal with it.

Unplayable is not... a way to describe this game. Honestly you may be having some sort of technical issues. (I know this post may be old but I'm doing it for my first five! Huzzah!

Do yourself and don't play this game again. I made that mistake and have regretted it since. I dunno how long Sega plan to flog this tired and shit franchise.

I know it's been a couple of months, but I found that the controls are either spot on, or twitchy - it comes down to your screen size and position of your left thumb

I have a Lumia 710, which is a small screen, so if my left thumb is SLIGHTLY off, then Sonic will either move exactly where I want, not at all, or stutter about

With bigger screens the controls must be MUCH easier!
