Summary: Full disclosure: before playing Sonic Generations (3DS) for review, I had never finished a Sonic game. I bought all the collections and rented or bought used copies of all the Wii titles because I love the series in theory.
Summary: Sonic Generations moves the franchise closer to a semblance of its past glory. Classic Sonic is as simple and as slick as it’s ever been while modern Sonic finally feels like it’s beginning to work.
Pros: Gorgeous, vibrant visuals, Excellent remixes of classic tunes
Cons: Controls can be finicky, Awful final boss fight
Conclusion: What can one say about a game that is fun, but the same thing we have seen before? Sega is stuck in the past with the Sonic franchise and that is either a good or bad thing. It depends how you look at it.
Summary: Delivering the definitive gaming experience for Sonic fans old and new, Sonic Generations sees Sonic the Hedgehog playable as both the much loved classic 1991 character, and the modern day video game hero he has become in this exciting new fast paced adventure.
Excerpt: It’s been twenty years since Sonic first raced onto the scene in Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Mega Drive. The spiky blue speedster has had his fair share of ups and down during the last two decades but is back with a bang in Sonic Generations.
Conclusion: It could do with a few more levels, a bonus stage, more bosses, slightly tighter controls and a load more playtesting to iron out the “AAAAAAAAARGGHHHH” moments, but Sonic Generations is still a worthwhile and entertaining package. It’s the best Sonic game since Sonic Heroes . What?
Conclusion: Even with a few truly awful missteps, Sonic has been reclaiming his glory one ring at a time and he’s taken yet one more red-booted step in the right direction with Generations. Camera issues and the trial-and-error nature of the gameplay won’t appeal to everyone, plus the release price doesn’t...
