GameXplain: "For a long time now, gamers have looked at Sonic the Hedgehog like he was a joke. His games were terrible, the characters were annoying, and he had lost all relevance. Titles like Sonic 2006 and Shadow the Hedgehog hammered this home yet the blue hedgehog continued to sell well. But what many people never realized was that after the bottomless hellhole that was the 2006 release, Sonic Team began to take notes. Sonic Unleashed, while mainly remembered for the werehog, had great daytime levels that showed Sonic could still be fun. Sonic Colors took that idea and created a game that had an equal focus on platforming and speed. Each was slightly better than the last and that has culminated with Sonic Generations, hands down the best Sonic game since Sonic 3 & Knuckles."
