Game Profile

Celebrate 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog with Sonic Generations.

Sonic Generations is the highly anticipated video game title to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog's 20th Anniversary. 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.

Set across three defining eras from 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog video game history, the instantly recognisable environments of Sonic Generations have been re-built in stunning HD and are now playable in both classic side scrolling 2D from 1991, as well as modern 3D style found in Sonic's most recent adventures.

Each incarnation of Sonic in Sonic Generations comes complete with his trademark special move, Spin Dash and Spin Attack for Classic Sonic, and Homing Attack and Sonic Boost for Modern Sonic. An innovative new interactive menu system allows for complete immersion in Sonic's universe with favourite characters and hidden treasures gradually being revealed throughout the game.

Sonic's universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power creates ‘time holes' which pull him and his friends back through time. As a result he encounters some surprises from his past history including Classic Sonic, Sonic as he appeared in 1991. Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic must defeat this strange new enemy, save their friends, and find out who really is behind this diabolical deed...

KEY FEATURES:

TWICE THE FUN – Play as both Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic in the ultimate Sonic experience. Master the moves of each character as they race through each environment on their own designed built track.

THE BEST BITS JUST GOT BETTER – Iconic environments from gaming history come to life in beautiful HD for the ultimate Sonic adventure, each revisited, recreated and re-imagined with stunning results.

ALL NEW EXPERIENCE – Play some of your gaming’s most iconic environments in a whole new way with famous Sonic stages presented in stunning new stereoscopic 3D.

Cycle shattering

Sonic Generations is a fitting celebration of the blue blur's legacy. We imagine somewhere deep inside Sonic Team's Tokyo headquarters there's a whiteboard packed with diagrams, text and flowcharts. Written at the head of the whiteboard in bold, red...

Hmmm, I am thinking about getting this one as long as it does not suck like the rest of the Sonic games besides 1, 2, &Knuckles, and Rush.

The only thing I found wrong with this game was the choice of levels. I think what they did was chose which levels would be cool in modern mode like Speed Highway, Rooftop Run & Sky Sanctuary rather than the more memorable favorites like Mushroom Hill, Casino Night & Emerald Coast. I really hope they add the 3DS stages through DLC. It just doesn't feel like Sonic Generations without those stages. I feel like it was also kinda rushed. They could have added stuff like Sonic Rush, Sonic 3, and Sonic CD. I am REALLY surprised that ther is no DLC. What about Ice Cap, Metal Harbor, and uhhh oh yeah, the 3DS STAGES! good game though, it's just really empty.

This and Sonic Colours should both prove that 3D Sonic games can be good.

Thrillers:
Creative Storyline

Some frustrating challenges
The Soundtrack
Overall: 9/10
