Description

Slows down time and enemies' movements

Slow (スロー Surō?)[1] is a move used by Sonic the Hedgehog that, when activated, allows Sonic to slow down time. It has only appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) as one of Sonic's Custom Actions. It can only be used when Sonic obtains the Red Gem.

Description

In order to use Slow, Sonic has to possess the upgrade called the Red Gem. Once obtained, the player has to select the Red Gem with the directional pad and to activate it, hold down Xbox-Button-RT/R1ps3.

When activated, Sonic can slow down time, thus effectively slowing down the surrounding environment and enemies' movements while leaving Sonic himself unaffected. This is a great way for the player to get the upper hand when he/she is low on rings and is outnumbered in enemies. Also, Slow does not only slow the environment, but the clock in the stages as well, making it a very valuable tool when the player wants to achieve an S-rank.

Despite its advantages, using Slow comes with some faults in gameplay: as the player slows down time, it affects how fast the player can turn the camera, which disrupts Sonic's ability to turn quickly in the air in order to make Light Speed Dashes and pass through Rainbow Rings. To avoid this, the player is recommended to deactivate Slow at these points.
