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_TK1646d ago

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

SONIC COLORS got the same score

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.

Gambit071646d ago

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

ReservoirDog3161646d 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...

Venox20081646d ago

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

killcycle1645d ago

Tommykrem1646d ago

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

TheRacingX1645d ago

Tommykrem1645d ago

Maybe I could get a friend to get it.
