Sonic Generations – Review (PS3, 360)

7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: There’s a saying that goes “Helen of Troy had a face that launched a thousand ships” and in gaming terms an equivalent would be that “Sonic’s character has sold a few million consoles” in a time when Sega were not only a software powerhouse but a hardware one too, dominating the landscape with the Mega Drive before coming unstuck with future consoles that were way ahead of their time, including the Dreamcast which I still consider the greatest console to date.

Review: Sonic Generations

12 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Title: Sonic Generations Developer: SEGA Release Date: 22nd November 2011 (NA), 25th November 2011 (EU) Platform: 3DS As soon as you boot up Sonic Generations, two things instantly strike you: a burst of colour and just the beginning of a fantastic sound track. The menu presents you with various options; including jumping straight into the game, the versus mode/online races, time attack and configuring your player card.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: Sonic Skip - Unlockables are opened up by completing Missions.  The Missions consist of things such as picking up all of the rings in a section of a level within a certain amount of time, or completing a level without getting hit.  Fortunately, they can be bought with Play Coins, which are earned using the 3DS’ pedometer.  This is a great option for players that don’t want to bother with the Missions, or for just passing particularly hard ones.

Play as Sonic of past or today in whiz-bang action romp.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Sonic Generations is an arcade-style game that features side-scrolling levels and 3D levels. It features a character that moves very quickly and that requires some quick reflexes to get through the levels. There is some minor violence as Sonic runs into characters and fights in Boss battles.

Game Debate

  • Excerpt: Ah, Sonic! Gaming’s most notable speed freak. I remember him fondly from his Sonic 2 days, when he was just a fresh faced upstart. Surely he’s now a burnt out shell, wrecked from years of obvious amphetamine abuse? Actually no, he’s looking pretty good for himself.
  • Pros: Brilliant level design, Eye-watering graphics, Sonic the Hedgehog!
  • Cons: 3D platforming, Crap boss fights, Terrible story

  • Summary: " Sonic Generations " for 3DS is the perfect celebration of Sonic. It looks beautiful, and while it retains many of Sonic franchise’s problems it also includes all the best the series has offered in its twenty years. Sonic Generations is the perfect purchase for any one with a love of Sonic, 2D platformers or simply lovers of great games.

Sonic Generations

  • Excerpt: Sonic Generations may be the best home console Sonic video game of all time. It pays homage to the past, and it includes the present all at the same time. You have probably seen our extensive coverage of this game on the website. Well I was able to recently purchase and play this game on the Xbox 360. There are also PS3, and PC versions of Sonic Generations. A Nintendo 3DS version is still on our request listing. Kind of a shame the Wii got left out.

  • Conclusion: Who's the genius that thought leaving out Launch Base Zone was a good idea?
  • Pros: Chemical Plant Zone is still awesome.
  • Cons: "That looks like a homing shot! Careful, Sonic! That looks like a homing shot! Careful, Sonic! That looks like a homing shot! Careful, Sonic!"
