Thumbs up Great tip for getting Chaos Emeralds!

I know these forums are dead and I am late getting around to playing this game but I couldn't help but read how some of you had no trouble obtaining the chaos emeralds in those extremely difficult bonus stages.

For me it was next to impossible to do due to the speed you are at towards the end and how precise and accurate you have to be to turn left and right at every blue orb. For me it was completely impossible and I thought I would never finish this game with full completion until I discovered something that finally got me through it!

Use the pause feature along with your save states! What I did was during the bonus stages, I would constantly tap the start button (Creating a slow motion effect!) to easily get through all the blue orbs and get the chaos emerald at the end! If it wasn't for me discovering this I would have completely givin up with the obtaining all 7 chaos emerald achievement!

So if anyone else besides me is having a hell of time with those extremely difficult bonus stages, try constantly pausing the game creating slow motion in conjuction with your save states and you should get through it no problem.

Hope this helps someone out there as it did me!

Nice to see the effort put in there dude. This is the technique I used but I never got round to putting it on here! This works!
