"Xbox live arcade is one of the best features of the 360, and the latest game
from the Sega vintage collection is Sonic the hedgehog. This game brings back
some memories.

Now there’s several guides on sonic floating around the internet so I’m not 
going to go through everything about the game. This guide is simply gonna go
through all the new features and give you a run through of how to play the 
XBOX360 version of the game.

 I hope you enjoy this game!" - Rob lane

There isn't a lot in the way of game play changed except it’s harder to control
sonic thanks to the Xbox controller having an analogue and not digital control
system.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=You can no longer:-=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

1. Access the title screen
2. Input cheats as the title is loading (such as level select U,D,L,R A+start)
3. Enter the debug mode
4. make the score go all weird when you used cheats
5. Play blue spheres with the sonic and knuckles add-on

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=But you can now:-=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

1. Save the game, at any point, and have up to 3 save games
2. Compare score with your friends on the Xbox live leaderboards
3. Stretch the screen and have pseudo-widescreen.
4. Complete achievements
5. New menu to incorporate the new features.


Other than that the game is identical, the same poor glitches are still there,
such as Sonic not being invincible to spikes after he has been hit and is 
still flashing and when in Marble Zone there’s a part when you crouch and pass
through the walls.


It’s almost a direct port....

Like with all Xbox live arcade games there are 200Gs up for grabs and they are:

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=Centurion (10G)=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Awarded for getting 100 rings. 

Its best to do this on the first stage as its short, the baddies are easy to
avoid/kill and its quicker than most other stages to complete.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=Chaos Emerald (10G)=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Awarded for getting one Chaos Emerald. 

This is done by completing the Act (other than act 3) with more than 50 rings
and jumping into the giant ring at the end of the level. Collect one emerald
from the special stage and you got this achievement.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=Chaos Master (35G) =
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Awarded for getting all the Chaos Emeralds.

This is done by completing the Act (other than act 3) with more than 50 rings
and jumping into the giant ring at the end of the level. Collect all emeralds
from the special stages and you got this achievement.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=Clear Green (5G) =
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Awarded for completing Green Hill Zone. 

This is probably the easiest achievement. Just get all through zone 1 and beat
Dr. Robotnik at the end.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=Fast Green (10G) =
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Beat Green Hill Zone Act 1 in under 35 seconds. 

Just hold right on the controller and don’t let off. Learn the level layout of
where baddies are and where you need to jump first and you should almost 
literally fly through the act.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=Fast Marble (15G)=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Beat Marble Zone Act 1 in under 80 seconds. 

The same principle applies as above, only it’s a little harder.(1:20 is a tough
challenge). Just learn the level first and remember your timing.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=Fast Win (30G) =
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Beat the game in under 40 minutes. 

There’s several tips on how to fly through games, my advice is cut every corner
you can. Don’t do the special stages and you should nail this target.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=Labyrinth Zone (8G)=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Get to the Labyrinth Zone. 

Self explanatory, really. Don’t sweat this one.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=Perfect Win (40G)=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Beat the game without dying. 

Use the save/load feature a lot here. Save the game at the start of every Act 
and after every hard section of a level. If you die, quit the game and load 
the last save.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=Spring Yard Zone (7G)=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Get to the Spring Yard Zone. 

.......? Really?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=Star Light Zone (5G) =
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Get to the Star Light Zone. 

See above
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=-=-=-=-=-=
=Win (25G)=
=-=-=-=-=-=
Beat the game. 

Not with a stick though. Patience is a virtue, just plod on Saving and loading 
if you die. beat the end of game boss and watch the epilogue to complete the
game.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
