The first 2 games had slow moments, yes, (Marble Zone and Labyrinth Zone in particular coming to mind), but not because of exploration so much as just more platform-heavy gameplay, which has been all but abandoned in recent games.
Yeah, I remember the Marble Zone (which has awesome music btw) being a little more methodical in nature and it may be those types of levels I'm looking for. I'll have to head back into zombieland, er... Sonicland while I have the Genesis out.
I whipped out Sonic 1 the other night and it pretty much felt the way I thought it would. While the speed is there it doesn't feel like the only thing the game has to offer. I like how the game slows down in certain stages (Marble Zone) and speeds up in others (Spring Yard Zone). Still, the lack of the Spin Dash comes off odd as does the lack of Tales.
Sonic 1 was before Sonic Teams obsession with fruit colored woodland animals.
