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.

I have high hopes for this!It's great that they're bringing back some old stages.
Isn't Perfect Chaos also called Pure Chaos?
not sure if i like this news i played demo little while ago was suprised only had 1 classic sonic lvl n no new sonic lvl i liked what i seen tho but this makes me wonder
hope they make dlc levels but f yes for this list. Death egg is always my fav the music just pwns.
i hope they come up with some more classic DLC
Why isn't there a Sonic CD level? I'd love to see Metallic Madness or Wacky Workbench in 3D.
Sega wouldn't be that cruel to not inculde the classics.
You DO realize, this game isn't celebrating the first 5 years of Sonic, right? It's covering all of Sonic's 20 years, so, sorry, the Genesis wasn't around that long. I'm more anxious to play 2D versions of modern and Dreamcast stages as classic Sonic.
Just because this game won't have more Genesis stages doesn't mean we can't look forward to a great platformer.
I'm probably going to get the 20th anniversary Sonic collection on PSN when I get money... it's gonna take me back when I was like 5 and when my grandparents had a working Genesis :)
I hope the game is actually playable and faithful to the classic Sonic formula.
They should make a mature themed Sonic game, where Sonic is going crazy and carries a knive and kills things. They can call it Sonic Madness.
Time Eater may fight you in Slow Motion! Sonic won't stand a chance!
The awesome boss fights would be shadow and silver! Ok if you guys that know the bosses from sonic games you never played (recent ones not ones in the 90's), Egg Dragon-Sonic Unleashed, Perfect choas-Pretty much most of the series, Metal Sonic-A few sonic games including sonic heroes.
Most of the stages are from any games from 1990's to today
