"Sonic Generations of Bliss"

Finally a Sonic game worthy enough to be played. It's been a while since we've seen our blue blur of a hero take the plate back to his roots (excluding the disastrous Sonic the Hedgehog 4) and the feeling never seemed so welcoming. With classic levels like Green Hill, Chemical Plant, and Sky Temple redone in eye popping 3D, it's hard to imagine that such an iconic franchise had to wait this long for a reboot. But the reboot was well worth the wait. Now you are able to control both Sonics, from past and present, in the most well tuned physics the series has seen since Sonic Adventure. On top of classic levels, many of the newer generation levels have been redone as well, only this time around they don't seem as clunky or difficult as their previous predecessors. Everything in this game shines like gold from challenges to boss battles. The only thing this game lacks is the option for multiplayer, but when you actually play the game and get lost with nostalgia you begin to wonder, 'who needs it'. Truly a masterpiece in a series that has produced many follies in it's past, and one that deserves recognition from it's ever loyal fan base. 10/10

Hello My Dear Sonic Fans! Today I'm reviewing the newest addition to Sonic Saga of games!

The Good Retro: Good back to the basic feel of Sonic that Sega/Nintendo has ruined for a good while. great levels a real nostalgic feel for anyone born 1980+ or who played Sonic on the Sega and Genesis, the original levels from Sonic and Sonic 2 each down to the slightest detail of the original making me feel as if I was younger. doesn't disappoint in the slightest however anyone who hasn't really enjoyed the original Sonic wouldn't really enjoy this part of the game. 20/10 for bringing back the original and still making him the best!

The Good Newer Sonic: Brings a few good levels from the newer Sonic games my favorite and still prob one of the best is Sonic Adventure 2 battle level's I have found that each and every level is epic and action packed and a fun experience even made levels from games I didn't even like more fun! not much I can say when the newer Sonic has a bit of hit and miss games but don't let that understate the levels are FUN!!! 10/10 on the scale for redeeming this new generation

Gameplay: The game play is original for Sega/Nintendo which is a first!!! you can play as Retro-Sonic and Sonic on levels like "Green Hill" also great ones from Sonic Adventure 2 Battle I enjoyed Retro Sonic on this one, has great repeatability which is a first for me! 10/10 Gameplay.

Story: Great for Retro-Sonic while redeeming for Sonic's past games like Sonic and the BlackKnight. 10/10

Controls: This was something I had an issue with while great! I felt as if it was too touch-and-go? I don't think it will be easy for everyone as I felt my reaction was faster than the game could react to.

Over all: Great gameplay, Great story, Controls touch-and-go, Back to the basic's with Retro-Sonic and Sonic all the levels while short are fun and fun to re-do, not many bosses, and bosses are simple, but lack in numbers, over all I liked it, just wished each level had a boss b

SONIC GENERATIONS IS AN AWESOME GAME FOR ALL GENERATIONS OF GAMERS! THIS GAME BROUGHT BACK SOOOO MANY MEMORIES, WITH A SMALL KICK OF NEW REMADE STAGES, IT STILL BRINGS A CHALLEGE! THIS GAME GETS A 4 OUT OF 5

we miss those stages where we can get the rings and earn the power gems.

inside the mini game (Sonic1) we are missing the thrid button. which might be the C button.

why we have to beat the game to unlock super sonic?
on xboxlive why cant we have realtime racing?
