IGN: Sonic Generations Review

It's almost jarring to see SEGA finally deliver on their generation-old promises that SEGA "does what Nintendon't." They have finally re-purposed Sonic as a platforming mascot that is, for the first time in ages, wildly definable by its own merits instead of trying to play catch up, tagalong or sorority sister with its mustachio partner in crime. Instead, Sonic Generations decides to ditch the plight of spending decades chasing Mario's happy go lucky hop and bop, vacational romps through paradise in favor of a vigorously fast and unforgiving speed drive through dystopia that honors expertise over bubbly luck.

My eyes are playing tricks on me. This...this is just impossible. I haven't played a good sonic game since adventure 2.

Commander_TK2401d ago

Me 2. Game was awesome. Hopefully Sonic is back with this one.

SONIC COLORS got the same score

miyamoto2400d ago (Edited 2400d ago )

Only 0.5 point lower than Battlefield 3!?

That is freaking awesome!

Sonic Team claims that they took all the good stuff from previous Sonic game and mixed them altogether here. Meaning to get this game if the score is true.

Has Sega finally hit the nail with this one?
Let us hope so.

"Only 0.5 point lower than Battlefield 3!? "

Yeah...Cause they obviously go for the same cup....

Pick up Sonic Colors.

Adventure 2 has not aged well.

Chrono2401d ago

Sonic Colors was good.

Gambit072401d ago

Adventure 2... one of my most disappointing games of all time... just don't go there man...

ReservoirDog3162401d ago

Was never into sonic much but this looks appealing to me for some reason.

Though I think I did play sonic adventure 2 before and liked it.

Maybe I should give this a shot...

Venox20082401d ago

I think you didn't play Sonic Colors.. which is a really good game

killcycle2400d ago

Sonic Colors is really good.

Was really surprised by the demo. Innovative, impressive and fun. It looked good too.

TheRacingX2400d ago

Tommykrem2400d ago

Maybe I could get a friend to get it.
