Sonic: Generations Races To A Win, Plumbers Beware!
The Game Reviews
5 March 2012
Excerpt: Finally SONIC THE HEDGEHOG has risen above his plumber rival and burst back into the limelight with an exceptional new platformer. To celebrate 20 years of the speedy little blue critter, SEGA have produced a mind bending assault on the senses, which in my view deserves to be nominated for Best Game...
Excerpt: One day, Sonic's friends throw him a surprise birthday party. Most of his friends are there. During the festivities, a large portal suddenly shows up overhead, and a strange mechanical beast breaks through.
Excerpt: Sonic the Hedgehog's gaming career sounds an awful lot like an episode of E! True Hollywood Story. When he debuted for the Sega Genesis in 1991, he quickly rose to super stardom; spawning everything from TV shows to action figures and even breakfast cereals - but then it all went wrong.
Conclusion: This is a great game that not only explores the history of Sonic, but takes the best of the series and puts it into a single game. It’s really disappointing then that the final third of the game is extraordinarily frustrating and poorly designed, especially when compared with how excellent the rest...
Excerpt: Hell's bells, nostalgia never felt so good. I remember our spiky blue friend back when he was good. Life was simple, all he did was fulfill his ring addiction while jumping on cute animals that had been turned into robots. Then it got all gimmicky for a while, and I turned away.
Excerpt: Sempre que surge um novo jogo do Sonic, lembro-me dos tempos da Mega Drive em que os jogos do Sonic eram divertidos, bem estruturados e incluíam algumas inovações, tornando cada novo jogo numa experiência diferente mas sem comprometer a sua essência.
Pros: Boa mistura entre jogabilidade clássica e actual, Design dos niveis é bastante bom, Muitos itens para desbloquear.
Cons: Falta de precisão dos controlos principalmente no actos 3D, Gráficos pouco detalhados em alguns actos 3D.
Summary: Sonic Generations – это блюдо для фанатов серии, которые могут быть не слишком довольны зиплайнам, QTE и скоростным перилам в 3D версии в Green Hill, но с удовольствием будут выполнять две сотни испытаний для открытия новой музыки и арта из классических версий серии.
