Like the original, it is the first stage of the game. Westopolis is one of the districts in Central City that is under attack by the Black Arms.

Lethal Interstate

This stage is found in the interstate highway areas of Central City. It is just like the originally named Lethal Highway stage only that it adds a few elements from Radical Highway with the red bridges.

Boulevard Turmoil

Formerly Central City from the original. This stage is found in the street areas of Central City. It is similar to Westopolis except it takes place during the daylight. It is divided into 2 acts.

  • Act 1: Shadow is the playable character. Under the brainwashing of Black Doom, he must eliminate 50 GUN soldiers who are trying to stop the Black Arms from setting up the bombs around Central City.
  • Act 2 The group of Knuckles, Vector, Espio, Charmy, Mighty, and Julie-Su must shut off 4 bombs in under 10 minutes.

Crazy Terminal

This stage is found in the subways of Central City. This is pretty much reminiscent of Subway Rush in Sonic Adventure 3: Enerjak Reborn. In this stage, the group of Sonic, Tails, Amy, Cream, Big, and Rouge must deactivate 4 bombs placed by the Black Arms in under 5 minutes.

Emerald Beach

Cryptic Castle

Cold Tundras

Sky Troops

This stage is actually Glyphic Canyon which is now floating in the air due to the Black Arms activating its orbs. It is found in Blue Ridge Zone.

In an interesting take on the mission, if you play as Shadow, not only the Black Arms are the enemies, but also GUN robots will go after you under the command of Com. Tower. If you play as Rouge, you will only fight against just the Black Arms and GUN is your ally faction.

Space Gadget

This stage found in the outer section of Space Colony ARK. This stage contains three acts.

  • Act 1: This act takes place outside of the ARK. It is a very straight-forward level filled with a lot of rail grinding involved and multiple platforms. Involved in the game are cannons whose purpose is to keep out intruders of the ARK. The playable character in the stage is Shadow who is ordered by Black Doom to infiltrate the ARK to activate the Eclipse Cannon.
  • Act 2: Like the previous act, this takes place outside of the ARK. Only this time, the features not only rail grinding, but also gravity switches, and areas full of low gravity where characters can jump higher.

  • Act 1: This act takes place 50 years ago during the raid in the ARK. Shadow, who was sent by Black Doom, is to take Maria to safety.
  • Act 2: This act is very much like act 1. Only this time it takes place months before the raid at the ARK. It's worth noting that this is the only level to not contain any enemies or allies.

Cosmic Intrusion

This stage consists of an area of asteroids where the Black Comet is far ahead. What is different about this stage is that you are controlling the spaceship-turned Tornado piloted by Tails as the heroes set to find and infiltrate the Black Comet.

Toxic Oasis
