"_ Sonic Generations is largely a game for the most hardcore of Sonic fans, but for the millions who have fond memories of narrowly dodging spikes, grinding on rails, or even that time he was a pinball, Sonic Generations is a game made for you._" -IGN.com
"_Sonic Generations is a strong, sometimes sentimental capstone to the franchise's first 20 years. It's at its best when it reminds you how it felt at the beginning, with so much to look forward to. _"- Kotaku.com

A Great Return to the Rootsaslam206 | Nov. 21, 2013 | See all aslam206's reviews »
The 2D platforming is smooth and fast, both key characteristics of classic sonic platforming. The 3D platforming has a great cohesive feel, the animation is fluid and the "tactile" responsiveness make it great. This game rewards fast reaction times and has upgrades all over the place making it a great game to play over and over. The level designs are also top notch, I wish I could say this about all the other sonic games that have come out in the past. The replayability is another factor as there are multiple ways to end the level, and finding all the small secrets are nice and help you explore the area. There are a few item upgrades for both modes so that also keeps it refreshing.
My main problem though is you still lose that sense of momentum in the 2D mode too often. They need to work on that, you get this jarring sense of disconnect when you hit a wall or get hit by an enemy and rebuilding that momentum takes time. However the game is still great even with these small issues.
Great game, with more content than you thinkSnotnarok | Nov. 4, 2013 | See all Snotnarok's reviews »
Sonic Generations is criminally overlooked because of previous 3D Sonic titles quality being mixed at best. They put a lot of effort into this game and it shows in every level, the PC port is no slouch either. The game is beautiful and the visual style very pleasing, to best explain the game with Modern Sonic you run at speeds that would make Burnout games blush. You are crazy fast, so fast Sonic can drift around tight turns. Classic Sonic plays, as you expect; like his classic counterpart, it's by no means EXACT, he feels different for sure but it's good. There's 2 acts to each level and about 9 levels, several boss fights have been remade, oh er, yes each level's style is taken from a previous Sonic title ranging from Green Hill Zone, Chemical Plant, Planet Wisp, Sea Side Hill.
To further this game's level of amusement, a great mod out there: Project Unleashed is a very easy to install mod that adds the day levels from Sonic Unleashed, the levels this game's modern Sonic levels were based on. There's ...maybe 7 levels to be had there, all ported over perfectly, and these levels were only previously on Console prior to this so it's just really great to have this option. I'm not one to blindly enjoy games based on maker, or who's in it, I've not liked many of Sonic's 3D outings, but this one really did a great job of bringing both Classic and Modern gameplay into one well made game.
A great trip down memory lane.FLD | Oct. 9, 2013 | See all FLD's reviews »
This was the first Sonic game I played in over a decade. I think the last one was Sonic 3 back when I still owned a Sega Genesis. So, this was a great trip down memory lane. I know the Sonic series has had a bit of a bad reputation in recent years but as someone who skipped out on that entire phrase the series went through, I enjoyed this one a lot. It actually has me thinking of checking out some of the older games I missed out on.

This game is great. Its Sega listening to their fans and delivering on what they all want. Which all boils down to Sonic going really fast. And boy does he go fast. Whether your a fan of classic or modern you'll love this game. Heck I'm not even that big of a sonic fan and I loved it. But just remember danger is lurking around every turn. Trust your feelings got to live and learn.

You play as both classic sonic and modern sonic in a variety of levels. These levels originate from past sonic games but with great visuals. While the game is short, you can enhance your experience with mods like the unleashed project. The unleashed project ports the modern levels of sonic unleashed to sonic generations. By far this has been the best mod i have played. This is a game you shoudn't miss out on.
