Sonic Athletics is a new arcade game at Sega's Joypolis park that uses a control scheme that seems obvious, even natural for a Sonic game: running. The giant machine uses eight side-by-side treadmills to compete in 100 meter dash, long jump, and 110 meter hurdles. You won't have to make yourself ill trying to do spin jumps, as that's handled by a button.

The 500 ($5.11) attraction seems a lot more sensible than Sonic's last attemptat motion controls. Even if playing it results in spending the rest of your day at the Tokyo amusement park covered in sweat.
