I thought the game was pretty good considering it was rushed. Dimps was given a really short time to make this game and probs could've been better if given more time. You still play as classic and modern sonic, and run around entirely new levels. I really enjoyed the updated soundtrack and visuals of the game, it gave me that blast from the past I was looking for. As you go along with the game you unlock new abilty's for both classic and modern sonic, plus missions you can do when your bored playing the actual game or if you already beaten the game and want to find something else to do when you don't want to keep replaying the levels. Let's talk about the gameplay. Classic sonic plays just like he has in the older games, he spin-dashes, jumps the same, and runs like he has in the olders games but could've been faster. Modern sonic also has 2d levels, expect he's basically boost to win along with homing attacking, jumping from time to time, sliding, and stomping. This style of gameplay can be very slippery at times, and could cause a cheap death from there and there. I really enjoyed how the boss fights has their own type of difficulty, but some can be to easy, or to hard and especially the time eater boss at the end of the game. I really hated the gimick of the hands coming right in front of your camera and you had to use your speed to dodge it. It got fustrating, but I eventually beat it. Overall the game has descent visuals, good gameplay, and nice boss fights. The game can have slippery controls, hard boss fights, and awkward stage design when playing for the first time. The game is a must buy if your that hard-core sonic fan who wants to play a descent handheld. Good job Dimps. :)
No matter what the critics say, this is one good game. It's awesome to finally play as classic sonic once again, and through both art styles do you find two variations of each stage that a true fan would remember from all the good times. The multiplayer is also very good, almost like the multiplayer of Adventure 2. I totally recommend it.
This port of Sonic Generations was okay at best. The things I didn't like about this port is the game is very short that you can finish the game in about five sittings. The good things about this port is the graphics and the music (although most are remixed themes of past sonic games) and the controls are great. Although I recommend the console port a lot more but for die hard sonic fans will enjoy this one two and I conclude by giving this game a 7 out of 10
