This game is notable for being [[EndOfAnAge the final game of Sonic's "Classic" Era]], and thus the last ''Sonic'' game to use the original designs for all the characters. It is the only fully-3D console game to do so (''VideoGame/SonicJam'' and the Saturn port of ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3DFlickiesIsland Blast]]'' had only small sections in 3D).

** Add on to this the fact that when a character goes into a loop or enters an extended falling state, their speed gets locked in unless they decelerate and you can use Amy's boost on the path leading up to a loop with it petering out just as she launches into it or launch yourself off of a big drop at the last moment(Most frequently found in Radical City) and effectively gain an extra 25-50% bonus of boost depending on the size of the loop or length of the drop while still allowing her to recharge since the boost technically ran out. Skilled abuse of this can effectively give Amy two and a half boosts in a row, all the speed she needs to leave her opponents in the dust.
