Sonic Generations – Review (PS3, 360)

mature-gaming.com
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.

  • 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.

Sonic Boom!

Game Debate
15 December 2011
  • 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

A Suffering Hedgehog’s Life Flashes Before His Eyes

  • Conclusion: Concept: A whimsical trip down memory lane that ends in the gutter Graphics: Bright colors and sprawling landscapes make for one of the best-looking Sonic games Sound: The remixes of old tunes and ability to select your own soundtrack make this an aural joy Playability: The 2D platforming is a slight step up from Sonic Colors’ floatiness, but running in a straight line while in 3D is difficult.

  • Conclusion: Sonic has had it rough over these past 20 years. From saving princesses and driving karts to turning into a were-hog and competing in the Olympics he’s been put through his paces with varying success. Fans have been harsh on him though, complaining that the little chubby Sonic from yesteryear is what they really wanted instead of his leaner, long legged, and green-eyed grown up modern Sonic.

  • Conclusion: While Sonic Generations is far and away the best Sonic game in a long time, there are still enough niggles to put off new players who will not have the same love for the hedgehog and his blend of twitch reflexes and level memorisation. As a standalone title Sonic Generations is a fun, if short-lived, platformer that is great while it lasts, but will probably not captivate you in the same way its forebears did.

  • Conclusion: Fans might have preferred compilation of Sonic's 16-bit greatest hits, but a career-spanning retrospective is what ended up on the track list. And you know what? Against all odds, Sonic Generations feels adequate. What Generations lacks in composure and conviction is compensated by properly administering nostalgia through levels that not only offer dozens of callbacks and references, but also feel capably designed for modern gaming sensibilities.
