Haven't you ever played the old school Tony Hawk games?? All you have to do is get used to hitting the direction just a bit before you actually want it to happen. In the THPS games you would do that in a combo, hitting the buttons before the next trick to lock it in. Same idea really, except actually simpler being only a direction.

My problem wasn't needing to get used to anything

I was already used to how it plays on mega drive, the extra lag was what made the bonus levels hard for me

after changing to the wired pad and removing the input lag I was able to clear 3 stages on my first try, stages that I had been repeatedly failing with the lag present

I know it's on a grid but as the speed gets higher the time between each grid section is reduced so having a more responsive pad really does help

The Blue Sphere stages are definitely harder in Sonic Mania compared to Sonic 3 & Knuckles'. I managed to do all 14 in S3&K on my first go today.

I haven't had a problem just using the D-pad. I think people are just salty because they're not as good at the game as they thought they were.


I got all golds, but I still think it feels a bit less responsive than the original. And I did the original fairly recently. I think it's thanks to a number of things though, not really because it's wireless.

The game is literally on a grid, unless you're pressing the button way too late, the lag won't affect a thing.


That's not quite right. If I press on the last moment in this game, the character won't turn. If I do that in the original, the character will still turn. Not sure if it's because of lag or because the feel is just different. But either way, it is a bit different in terms of timing.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

it's not the game's fault, it's the players. In other words, git gud.


Might sound harsh, but entirely accurate. Every single time I fail (which is a lot) it feels like it is 100% my fault. The early stages I was blowing past and I thought I was the s***. NOPE. Been stuck with six levels left to go for awhile now.

I'm glad somebody understands what I'm talking about :)

Why would you wait till the very last moment to press the button to turn? I've also felt no lag at all when it comes to jumping.

Sometimes there is no choice but to press on the last moment. Like 50% of my fails in those stages happened because I pressed on the last moment and he wouldn't turn. It's not like it's easy to time when you're already going at turbo speed. That special stage where start from a big square and then circle around as it gets smaller and smaller and you get faster and faster... because of issues with the controls not being responsive enough, I beat that stage by awkwardly jumping to the end after it starts and then basically going in reverse.
