Not quite like the consoles, more like a varied extension

Summary: Sonic Generations on 3DS is nothing more than a cheap cash in with some gameplay differences found exclusively here. There is no 3D action platforming high speed gameplay. Instead you are treated to a 2D Sonic action and a faster 2D Sonic. The storyline remains the same only with no friends around save for the rival characters who's boss battles are nothing more than races picked up from previous games like Sonic Rivals.
Summary: That's why I gave it 3 stars. Each level has 3 parts. The first two regular parts and the 3rd part is the special level for the stage. The first part place like an old school sonic game (like sonic, sonic 2). The second part plays more like a current day sonic game. While some may find this 'nice', I find it kind of annoying. For me I end up dying a lot thinking I'm in one stage vs the other and trying to either go into a ball or use an ability I don't have.
Summary: I bought the game for my 3DS to experience it. It was somewhat disappointing to see the game was a "2D 3D Side Scroller", after playing a game like Resident Evil: Revelations, i know what the system is capable of and it feels like the 3DS version of this game kinda got the short end of the stick. I was also somewhat disappointed when i found out this game didn't have the "City Escape" Mission in it.
Summary: I'm personally a huge fan of the Sonic series, and while I will absolutely vouch for the console version over the 3DS port, this had it's charm and kept me fairly entertained. It controlled nicely enough, athough I found myself needing to use the d-pad over the circle pad more often than not, primarily because of spin dashing in classic stages.

Summary: After playing through Sonic Generations on PC and finding out that the 3DS version had a different set of levels I had to give it a shot. What I got was a mixed bag that didn't quite feel right at the $40 price point. Sonic Generations 3D manages to outpace the console/PC version in some areas but falls far short in others.
Nothing wrong with the selling, but the game is not so good

Summary: Not the best released Sonic Generations. There are actually no videos nor story explanations, and if you lost a few chapters of the previous Sonic games, some levels will be unknown and ridiculous (I never played Sonic Colors, and at a certain point in a Level I have to deal with them. No explanation at all).
Summary: This is a good game, There are good graphics and the pictures are quite realistic, and the levels are interesting and exciting. The 3d effect isn't very good and all it does is make the graphics blurry and hurts you eyes. The levels are enjoyable but they are really, really easy and I completed nearly every one on its first go apart from the really hard end ones.
Summary: but it's the best recent Sonic game in years, delivering pure Sonic platforming without pushing unexpected genre-shifts on the player. Some of the moves are a little hard to pull off properly, though this is more to do with muscle-memory and unfamiliarity with the gimmickry of Sonic Colours on my part.
