The lights are on
Some crafty Sonic junkies have rooted around in the recently released Sonic Generations demo and discovered a real doozy. We can’t be positive that this is the final list, but it does suggest that there are far fewer classic stages than longtime fans may appreciate.
The levels appear to be listed chronologically, acting as a timetable of Sonic’s history over the… generations? It also suggests that Casino Night Zone will be DLC. The level is apparently a pinball stage exclusive to preorders. Another revelation is each stage will have about 5 acts. Other scuttlebutt hints that the game will also come with a Genesis emulator. Could Sega be using this as another opportunity to offer fans a Sonic collection?
The list as posted by Sonic Retro forums:

We’ll keep you posted if any more developments arise.

It was like living for the first time when I played city escape. Sad to say it was the best part of the whole game besides the ending.
ice cap, angel island,or carnival night shoulda been there but watever as long as chemical plant and planet wisp are offical im good
Not too many classic stages, but all great imo. Silver as a boss might be the only thing on this list I didnt like. Then again, if I get to kick the snot out of him, its all good
No Ice Cap Zone? :(
downloading the demo now
Shame there's no Ice Cap or Lava Reef, but the inclusion of Sky Sanctuary is great.
The first three levels will be the only ones I even play if this is it.
If the game is long enough (and good for that matter), I guess it's okay. As long as they continue to pump new stages into the game via DLC, I'm perfectly cool with it.
