Sonic Generations takes the player on a voyage through 20 years of Sonic history. Pairing 2D-Levels with 3D-Stages Generations offers the best of both worlds and provides fans of the franchise with tons of unlockable art, music and gimmicks. Hands down one of the best Sonic games in the last 10 years.
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.
A combination of the best of Sonic, Sonic Generations reinvents, while staying true to the myth, and serves the fan well, whatever its generation is. It's an anthology of the musics, the pictures, the bosses, characters and levels we loved the most during those past 20 years of Sonic games, and one that, while not perfect (some gameplay imprecisions do subsist), remains a must-have for the Sonic lovers.
Compared to Colors, Sonic Generations is a weaker, above average effort. Even taken as fan-service, the game's wavering quality, apparent lack of creativity and meandering filler feels like it's stalling until next year's birthday, and next year's game.
Generations is one of the greatest sonic games of all time,if not the greatest,it isn't too hard or buggy,it is very short and lacks of story but it is a nice trip down the memory lane for the OG sonic fans
Great sonic overall, i did hate the history and a lot of characters that didn't need to be there, the classic Sega Genesis sonic is also played on 4:3 for no apparent reason, the final boss is just boring, but all the rest of the game is incredible, just a great sonic with both of the styles built on the franchise in well done stages.
Gameplay (3d sonic)
Good level design
2D sonic (control like ass compared to sonic mania, feels chunky )
Bugs ( like clipping through the ground in some areas)
A little bit overrated
Bro this game is overrated af, most the things that u have to double tap for are really really hard to use and sometimes dont even work, boost system **** because they expect you to use a boost a certain way and sonic is hard to control
When this game was first announced, I was so excited for a new (good looking) Sonic game, especially one that revisited the two best Sonic games ever, Adventure and Adventure 2. Yet when I played the free trial, I was massively disappointed by the clunky gameplay and ignored it. Years later I revisited it, and made it through the game, but was still disappointed. There is no story at all, the revisits of the previous levels are weird, and there's literally a minigame where you have to perform homing attacks on musical notes. What is that?
The controls are horrible, he doesn't always jump when he's supposed to, his light speed dash is ineffective, turning corners is hard, and what is with this obsession of making a 3D platformer into a 2D platformer? If I'm playing as modern Sonic, why do I still have to sidescroll?
Very disappointing game, and this is supposed to be one of the better Sonic games? Still hasn't been a good one since the Adventures.
SummarySet 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.
