Awesome Game! If you're familiar with sonic and liked it from back in the day you will enjoy this game. With a different pace of gameplay than the original sonic games from the past, this title throws in a version of sonic from a previous game called "Sonic Unleashed" in which you switched from sonic to a slower but more powerful werewolf version of sonic. However in this title, "Sonic Generations", you switch between two sonic versions, the one from the past and the new version of sonic. Players who have played the older sonic games from the 90's will be really familiar with the classic sonic levels of the game where as the present sonic version provides a challenge to those who are not accustomed to playing his style, but still provides for a lot of fun. The present version of sonic actually has a boost feature in which he moves so fast the background in the game literally at some points becomes a blur and really tests your hand and eye coordination as well as reflexes. WITH THAT LEVEL OF SPEED IT GIVES YOU A REAL FEEL OF WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE SONIC! THIS IS HOW A REAL SONIC GAME SHOULD BE!
I've been playing sonic ever since the Genisis days and it thought this game was awesome to take on the old with the new. the little things they added into the story make you have a blast from the past with their bosses and remastered music. After all the other sonic games they have come out with I believe this one got it right. If they could just make New sonic better to control at this game would be even better. I look forward to see whats next fo Sonic if the polish this formula even more.
It seems like all of the new generation SONIC games have all left gamers wanting... NOT THIS ONE! The blend of classic platform style with the newer 3D worlds that we've seen before brings a new & refreshing title that is incredibly addictive. The ability system adds an RPG style character customization that brings a while new element to Sonic. You can choose from a wide variety of skills such as "Stop on a dime" to keeping the rings you've lost in game longer. I am glad to say that Sonic Generations not only broke the craptastic mold they've used for Sonic games up till now, hopefully this will be a new format for Sonic games to come!
