Telegraph: "Sonic Generations is a lot of things. A birthday celebration, a memorial to Sonic's last 20 years, a greatest hits. But it almost feels like a heartfelt apology, a game that catches up for lost time. It's Sonic Team holding their hands up and saying "ok, guys, we are sorry for all those dreadful camera angles, inappropriate human love interests and the were-hog. This is how it should have been all along."
You’ll have fun playing it, that’s for sure. It isn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination, and a couple of levels and challenges see Sonic slipping into some of his bad habits, but largely this is an enjoyable, breezily compelling platformer that captures some of that old magic that made us all fall in love with Sonic 20 years ago. Sonic Generations, then, is another worthy step towards Sonic’s Redemption."
