Summary: This game is cool, its alot like i remembered in some ways but everyhting moves so fast/quickly that its hard to really enjoy/ get a feel for the game. plus back in the day (on sega) you could play with 2 players, this one only has one player option.
Summary: Good game super fast shipping. Only regret is its a 1 player game and my son wont play it since its not a 2 player. Only wish amazon would upgrade their description to include singke or multi player games like gamestop. It worth the extes buck or 2 to buy from gamestop in my opinion.
Summary: Sonic fans say this is the best Sonic game in years. I'd agree if Sonic Generations doesn't feel as rough and unpolished as it is.
Pros: Sonic Generations is meant to commemorate Sonic's 20th anniversary so it's got a ton of references to most retail releases including obscure stuff like Knuckles Chaotix. Also has a ton of music and artwork from previous Sonics. The gimmick Generations has is its split Sonic along 2d and 3d 'gener...
Cons: Game is short and padded with a lot of annoying and repetitive challenges. controls are flaky. 2d Sonic has turning issues. On a 2d plane. Yes. It takes him a few tenths of a second to turn around. The problem I experienced was after turning and spin dashing, Sonic wouldn't be fully turned around...
... 8 year old son and it is not as easy at I would have liked it to be

Summary: I got this for my 8 year old son and it is not as easy at I would have liked it to be. It gets stuck in some areas and needs to be played by an adult or older child who knows games a bit more.
Excerpt: I've always loved Sonic the Hedgehog - you can probably tell if you've read my previous reviews - and so I was ecstatic when Sega brought out a game featuring the best stages from 20 years of Sonic games.
Excerpt: Sonic generations is much better than I had expected. Every stage comes from sonic's past including Green hill zone, emerald coast etc. There's even a sonic colours stage that lets you use the wisp's powers. Every Stage has a modern sonic, Older sonic and special versions of stages.
First good sonic game in years, too bad it's over so fast.

Excerpt: I will start by saying I only rented this game and played to the end over a week, because after seeing others finishing it in a weekend, I didn't feel it would be worth the £40 price tag it had. The story The story is really silly and non-logical. However, You play as a talking hedgehog.
