Sonic Generations gets its name from its somewhat obscure premise. Players will take on the form of the classic 16-bit era Sonic, as well as that of the slick modern day presentation. The very first Stage has obviously been designed purely to get those nostalgia juices flowing. The first half is little more than a recreation of the first act of the Greenhill Zone from the first 16-bit Sonic the Hedgehog title – everythingElectronic Theatre Image from enemy placement to sound effects – while the second half shows just how modern technology is allowing the developers to take these original ideas further. With no explanation as to a storyline or where the videogame will go from here, it’s a bold opening statement.
