Sonic's return to form...,
This review is from: Sonic Generations - Collector's Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
I have been a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog since his original debut on the Sega Mega Drive. This is a great return to form.
Having played every major release in the 20 years since his beginning in 1991, this is an excellent homage to decades past. Everything still manages to feel new and fresh. There is little story to speak of, though who plays a sonic game for the story?
It's the gameplay that is fun, and the 2D/3D split acts carry the game very well. It doesn't feel as stop/start as one might think when considering the speed differences of the different styles of play. Instead, you recieve an excellent mix of gameplay.
The franchise has taken a dip in quality, what with "Sonic 2006" and the panned "Werehog" sections of "Sonic Unleashed". As well as this, the previously released "Sonic 4: Episode 1" developed by Dimps on behalf of Sonic Team had incredibly poor physics. This all seems forgotten in the great Sonic Generations, which is for the better.
All round fun!
