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

    Sonic Generations is, quite simply, the greatest Sonic game ever produced. Regardless of whether that statement still holds any relevance today, this game is a triumphant victory for Sonic Team and for the blue hedgehog himself. Stand proud Sonic, you deserve it.

    Bottom line: If you are or have ever been a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog during the series' two-decade history, then this is your game.

    Fantastic game. Really has the authentic sonic feel. Only a few minor quibbles where the difference between fast and slow sections aren't obvious resulting in repeated deaths. Also slow loading times for the ps3 but the gameplay is incredibly fun for novice and frequent players alike Full Review »

    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)

    The game's beatable in few hours, and it's not that fun, it has some missions but, more acts would have been much better, modern gameplay is too boost to win, with platforming, but sometimes it don't work very well, hopefully the classic stages are cool, but not that much to "save" the game from being not so good.
