    Probably the best Sonic game ever made, and the perfect celebration of everything Hedgehog for any type of fan. Happy Birthday, Sonic!

    The excellent game Sonic has deserved for years, that although doesn't evolve the gameplay formula, adaptates it better than ever to the 3D, although with some flaws. A game that will make fans smile.

    The speed is intense, the color and detail is really great, the level designs throughout are impressive, and the control is about as good as we've seen from Sonic.

    It's the same recipe as in its predecessors: speed, Sonic and style. Although the handling is not exactly great, there's lot to find in Sonic Generations. Variety, challenges and a nice skill system do Sonic justice.

    This is a great way to celebrate the twentieth birthday of a videogame icon. 2D Sonic still stands for a superb platforming experience, while 3D Sonic shows us yet again why this series has gone downhill.

    It can't sustain itself for more than an hour or so. [Issue#212, p.92]

    A reminder of both what you adore and abhor in a series that's had its simple joys diluted by flash-in-the-plan iterations and ideas.

    Sonic Generations is the best Sonic Game since Sonic 2!
    I admit i was kind of slipping from being a sonic fan after Sonic 06 but this game brought me back and its probably one of my favourite games of all time.

    The Story is something i can really appreciate as a Sonic fan since they are finally making jokes about themselves and it is hilarious, every line of dialogue is sure to make you atleast giggle!

    The Gameplay is everything we ever wanted from a perfect Sonic Game and thats Incredible speed,Momentum based Platforming and any other awesome additions certainly help the game stay fresh and new.

    and finally the Graphics are Breathtaking, you have to see them to believe them. (Especially if you got a 3D TV)

    In Conclusion Sonic Generations is one of the best games all year and it is definitely worth every penny of its purchase price! (oh and Rival Battles are EPIC)

    This might just be the best Sonic ever made. It blends old school and new school gameplay in a very nice balance. The original Genesis gamesThis might just be the best Sonic ever made. It blends old school and new school gameplay in a very nice balance. The original Genesis games were amazing, and this is the first time Sega has produced a Sonic game that can keep up with the greats. This is how sonic should have been transitioned into 3D in the first place. I'm truly impressed, and recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the first couple games from the Genesis days. Expand

    But Roger Craig Smith still voices Sonic, Kirk Thornton voices Shadow now, and Cindy Robinson voices Amy now

    for those voices I subtract 2 points

Sonic Generations this is what I call the worst Sonic game of all time. Sega is very uncreative with their game. "Uhh... we have to make a Sonic game" Sega staff: "sigh" Sega worker: " hey I got an idea instead of thinking of something new lets just recycle all of Sonic's adventures! Thus this terrible game was born. It features terrible graphics. Horrible voices really abysmal. Almost unplayable stay away from this game Expand
