Manufacturer's Description

Celebrate 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog with Sonic Generations.

Sonic Generations is the highly anticipated video game title to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog's 20th Anniversary. Delivering the definitive gaming experience for Sonic fans old and new, Sonic Generations sees Sonic the Hedgehog playable as both the much loved classic 1991 character, and the modern day video game hero he has become in this exciting new fast paced adventure. Set across three defining eras from 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog video game history, the instantly recognisable environments of Sonic Generations have been re-built in stunning HD and are now playable in both classic side scrolling 2D from 1991, as well as modern 3D style found in Sonic's most recent adventures. Each incarnation of Sonic in Sonic Generations comes complete with his trademark special move, Spin Dash and Spin Attack for Classic Sonic, and Homing Attack and Sonic Boost for Modern Sonic. An innovative new interactive menu system allows for complete immersion in Sonic's universe with favourite characters and hidden treasures gradually being revealed throughout the game.

Sonic's universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power creates ‘time holes' which pull him and his friends back through time. As a result he encounters some surprises from his past history including Classic Sonic, Sonic as he appeared in 1991. Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic must defeat this strange new enemy, save their friends, and find out who really is behind this diabolical deed...

KEY FEATURES:

  • TWICE THE FUN – Play as both Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic in the ultimate Sonic experience. Master the moves of each character as they race through each environment on their own designed built track.
  • THE BEST BITS JUST GOT BETTER – Iconic environments from gaming history come to life in beautiful HD for the ultimate Sonic adventure, each revisited, recreated and re-imagined with stunning results.
  • ALL NEW EXPERIENCE – Play some of your gaming’s most iconic environments in a whole new way with famous Sonic stages presented in stunning new stereoscopic 3D.
  • UNLOCK NEW ADVENTURES – Once you complete each level and ‘free’ Sonic’s captured friends, you’ll get to go back and take on more challenges with them at your side.
  • INFAMOUS BOSSES AND RIVALS – Take on some of the most notorious characters from Sonic’s past as you fight for ultimate supremacy.
  • MASTER YOUR MOVES – Master Classic Sonic’s famous spin-dash attack and utilise Modern Sonic’s ‘Boost’ as you complete all new tracks.

The game that all Sonic fans were waiting since the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. I'm a very Sonic fan, and the modern ones I just didn't like it that much and in this game, even the modern gameplay it's very nice! And the pleasure of playing with classic Sonic in the Green Hill Zone and in the Chemical Plant... Such a nostalgia! I only wished they would have made more old levels. I love this game. Hope that Sega sees that Sonic fans want gameplays more like the old ones.

As a fan of the series for 19 years, Sonic Generations is a great way to celebrate the 20th anniversary! Playing through 9 levels cherry picked from the series history as old-school 2D sonic and the newer 3D style creates lots of nostalgia, particularly when you spot a piece of level design from another level that didn't make the cut. (The final level from Sonic Colours feels a lot like the classic 'Scrap Brain Zone', for example.

The game is fairly short, but each level has so many secrets and alternate routes as well as online leaderboards it becomes hard to put down! The difficulty curves nicely for younger children (and those of us with no hand-eye coordination), and the music remixes for each Sonic play style are absolutely fantastic!

Cannot recommend it enough!

A... good Sonic game? A GOOD Sonic game?! What crazed Bizarro world parody of Earth is this upon which I find myself? After so many years of the has-been hedgehog turning out terrible game after terrible game (Last year's surprisingly good 'All Star Racing' excepted I guess, but it wasn't strictly a Sonic game) it seemed not unreasonable by this point to just roll your eyes at the very idea of a new Sonic game (Although some of us still kept coming back for more every time. Not my proudest moments.)... but believe me when I say that Sonic Generations is easily the best Sonic game since the series moved to 3D. I'm sure the irony of the majority of the game being based firmly in 2D play mechanics is lost on no one.

Foregoing the pointlessly long winded narrative structure of the majority of the 3D Sonic games, Generations' story is kept as minimal as possible, using only the bare minimum of cutscenes to establish the story that sees some sort of time travelling monster causing havoc for both 'classic' Sonic (As he appeared in the Mega Drive Sonic games) in the 'past' and 'modern' Sonic (The Poochie D-esque annoyance he's become today) in the present. With the two stranded in a white 'limbo' outside of time and unaware of each other's presence there, they both must travel through levels revamped from every Sonic game from the very first title right up to last year's Sonic Colours, each played in 2D for classic Sonic and in a hybrid 3D/2D mixture for modern Sonic that has the appearance of the 'daytime' levels of Sonic Unleashed in execution, but are significantly better put together here. This essentially gives you every level presented in a Mega Drive era fashion (Gameplay wise at least) and also in a full 3D fashion, and it works fantastically.

First off, I thought everyone should know that this looks fantastic in 3D, so if you have a 3D TV you're in for a real treat.

Sonic games in the past few years have been pretty bad, Sonic 4 was terrible, the music was hideous, just plain nasty, so much so you had to turn it off, but also they messed up the game physics, all momentum was removed from the game and it simply didn't play right, it wasn't Sonic. You had no choice if you wanted your Sonic fix; you had to return to Sonic 1/2 and Sonic CD. When Sonic Generations was announced I had little hope. However I was wrong, very wrong, now I can get my Sonic fix without returning to the 90's!

Graphically the game looks great, it really is nicely polished. I really like the music, it's a compilation of original Sonic tracks (from Sonic 1,2, Adventure and even one track I noticed from Sonic CD) but revamped to sound fresh and new but maintaining the original sound, it sounds great and works really well.

There are some really cool bits, one bit in particular - Sonic finds himself at the top of a building on a spire, real high up overlooking the town, he slides / grinds down a rail towards the ground at great speed; the buildings on the ground rushing up to meet him! You really have to see it but it looks amazing (its a moment where the graphics, music and game-play all come together to make you feel epic!!), maybe the 3D made the difference here (providing greater perspective), but it really stood out. There are plenty of bits which wowed me though, even made me smile. Plenty of time has been spent on this game and it shows.

The slight problem... well, if you're familiar with Sonic games of yore then you'll know you need fast reflexes as well as responsive controls.

I bought this game off PSN. WARNING if like me you have a tendency to throw your controller then do not buy this game. It is possibly the most infuriating game I have ever played. If you are not a hot head like me then you might enjoy this game. Pros: 1) Its good to revisit some old stages with new twists. 2) The graphics are the best I've ever seen on a Sonic game (especially on PlayStation). Cons: 1) The controls can be clunky so Sonic misbehaves. 2) Stage select is set out really stupidly and causes confusion. 3) Some levels are made unnecessarily hard and can spoil your enjoyment. So all in all a good addition to your sonic collection, as long as you can stay calm and not smash your controller into molecules.
