Whatever the reason is that's made it two weeks delayed must be one small enough for it to be not that big of a deal, unless I'm mistaken.

I think the reason so many people are angry is that not only was the announcement made four days prior to the originally intended release date, but the versions on all other platforms were not delayed like the PC version was.

Watching YouTube videos of people playing this game is so painful.

Either they don't know the outline/border trick to the blue sphere game - or they just play badly in the main game. Some guy was playing the special zone game (where you get a starting prompt explaining: "Chase the UFO") and he fluffed the stage at least three times before his co-commentator pointed out: "Oh hey - you see that thing in front (i.e. the UFO) - you think maybe you're supposed to chase it?"

It's like 'gamers' these days don't even know the most basic fundamentals of gaming (or how to read).

My god.

I know what you mean.

Sadly, this the general demographic SEGA wants to appeal to.

The Chemical Plant boss is delightful.

So is Studiopolis and Mirage Saloon.  God, I love this game's easter eggs.

That final zone... wow. What a stunner.

The game is beautiful, plays better than ever, has an incredible soundtrack, really, REALLY good level design (except the third-to-last zone...), memorable and tough boss fights, and is overall an incredible homage to the old games.

As for that third-to-last zone...

Now that I think about it, a majority of the levels were machine/factory themed.

I guess that explains why I found parts of the game kinda monotonous.
