Sonic has also been used as a symbol for Sega’s various sponsorships. Between 1993 and 1997, Sega sponsored the JEF United Ichihara Chiba football team, during which period Sonic appeared in the team’s uniform. During the 1993 Formula One championship, Sega sponsored the Williams Grand Prix team, which won the Constructors’ Championship that year, as well as the team’s lead driver, Alain Prost, winning the Drivers’ Championship. Sonic was featured in the cars, helmets, and their rivals McLaren used to paint a squashed hedgehog after winning races over Williams.

Later games would downplay the time bonus aspect (most notably Sonic 3 & Knuckles, where none of the levels can be beaten in 30 seconds), but they would reward you with Continues if you got a certain number of points. The game is comprised of six “Zones” with three “Acts” each. The Chaos Emeralds are obtained via collecting 50 or more rings and leaping into a Giant Ring, which appears at the end of Acts 1 or 2 as Act 3 almost always ends with a boss encounter.

Sonic’s new open worlds prove delightfully engaging and imaginative, despite lacking polish and sloppy fixed-camera “cyberspace” levels. Sonic Frontiers is certainly different from what we’ve come to expect from Sonic and company – both for better and for worse. Sonic Frontiers doesn’t give it that purpose, but it does suggest it’s not far off from finding it, either.
