    Swirly legs, more rings and quite a bit more clouds in the background is what I'm noticing.

    ^There's also more of a 3 dimentional effect on the background platform in the new one.

    Sonic has two lives instead of three

    also, you should probably mention which is the old shot and which is the new one. I assumed that left/old and right/new but upon visiting the forum I found it's actually vice-versa.

    Sonic's running animation is also more blurred. The area that seems to be the most different besides that torch level is the Casino with those cards. : )

    Why would they take off the clouds?


    Actually, I think the clouds looked better.

  6. I think the clouds are unchanged, were just seeing a different portion of the sky as it rolls by

    Sonic and his bubble shield looks better in the current version. As well as the checky background.. Although the lesser clouds is a minor but if what Barry the Nomad said is true then everything is better and the enjoyment time is near! =)

  10. Okay, the official slogan for Sonic 4's release is now: "the enjoyment time is near!" Love it!
