Sonic drifts around tight turns.
This move is used to get through tight turns found throughout the game's levels and can also be used to fill the Ring Energy bar in the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 versions. In the Wii/PlayStation 2 versions, Sonic has to perform the Sonic Drift more often, the move is also much sharper, and using it long enough will give the player a "Drift Bonus", if performed correctly.
The move can also be performed in Sonic Colors, but can only be performed at certain curve points. The physical features for the drift is different as it has rainbow sparks shoot out of it (similar to the Sonic Boost in this game) which is in equalization to the theme of Sonic Colors. The drift becomes more "slippery" and difficult, and it does not raise the boost gauge, although it does earn the player extra points. It can also be used to crash into enemies and objects.
