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. Sadly, in practice, the games always wear out their welcome before I see the ending credits.
Excerpt: Memory lane is a place cobbled with old hopes and dead dreams, where forgotten friends stare out at you though the dusty windows, and faded scenes from your past are posted on the shop walls. Down this lane run two figures; each bears a resemblance to the other, but they are different none the less. One is the bright-eyed youngster; someone just starting out in the world, with all the innocence, vitality and optimism that youth entails.
Pros: Gorgeous, vibrant visuals, Excellent remixes of classic tunes
Cons: Controls can be finicky, Awful final boss fight
