this was my favorite game from 2011 but i still won't give it an 10. A 10 needs to be perfect and there still were some things for me that didnt make it perfect for me. The story is just 4 hours, only characters playable are sonic and classic sonic (i would like to see shadow or some other characters to be playable) and there aren't alot of cutscenes like there were in unleashed and colors. But besides the short gameplay, i now played sonic generations around 100 hours. This all together made me give the game an 9.5 out of 10, but it wasn't far away from the 10.
That's because since they're from the past, they're considered much younger.
but why does tails get a voice he didn't talk in the original or as far as I can remember
its because sonic never talked in the Genesis games (except sonic CD)
all the classic sonic characters seem 2 b shorter then the modern characters.
sonic fans are way more loyal then the mario fans. Sonic generations is exactly what the current sonic fanbase wanted and the people who request idea's like this would likely never buy a sonic game if it was done this way and the proof is in sonic dark brotherhood (great game for those who complain about the lack of story in sonic games that couldn't even pull in the sonic fans because it was so much against what the current sonic fans want and instead what people like you want)
times? the game has multiple pathways so secret you will need to play each level a minimum 50 times before you even start to understand how in depth it actually is in terms of secrets.
I never understood why in this games mordern sonic can have a voice but classic sonic can't
Ben solid review you did sonic justice everywhere to me it was good but for us us sonic hardcore fans its a buy but the avg gamer interested in it a weekend play trough
I really hope Sonic makes a comeback. And hopefully Sega might go back in to the console market.
i played it and it was even beter then what i had hope even if i did beat it very fast i still played it more then one time try out all the diffrent power like the one you get after the last boss
I never grew up with sonic. A friend of mine had a Mega Drive, but he never allowed me to play Sonic. He was playing, I was watching. That event kinda killed SEGA for me (shut up, I was a kid). Only recently did I discover Sonic, namely through Sonic Rush for the DS, which was a solid game. I kinda liked Sonic Colours, even though the level design was unbalanced. You could go from a balls crushingly hard and at times broken level to a walk in a park level. So yeah, I'm no Sonic fan.
Now thanks to Steams Weekend Sale (15€ for Generations) I bought this game. And I like it. It's a fun experience so far and I'm kinda determined to complete all challenges and stuff. Haven't beaten it yet, though.

This was one of my favorite games of all time Sonic Generations>Super Mario 3D Land
I had fun playing this game, and even got it for Christmas... After I already beat it a la rental.
me and Sonic are born on the same year 1991.
I played many sonic games since I was a kid. This is my all time favorite. Specially (I can't believe I'm saying this) the 3D Sonic...
i love this game even though i don't play many sonic games
I've played only two games of Sonic(Sonic,Sonic 2,For Sega Genesis)!I still want the gAme!!!BUY THE F$%KING GAME PEOPLE!!!
Glad Sega has stopped experimenting with Sonic. Lets hope the next one is a step forward and not a step back into a pile of shit
