Sonic Generations got it right! After having heard all the bad feedback about Sonic games that came after those on the Genesis, I was skeptical about any newer Sonic the Hedgehog game release. I tried out a couple, and I can see where all the negative press was coming from. But a demo of Sonic Generations at my Walmart store changed my mind entirely! After playing it for a few minutes, I knew I wanted it for my game collection.
I'm a big fan of the original Genesis Sonic games, so having Classic Sonic featured in this game was a real treat. But it isn't just the plain side-to-side platform it used to be. While Classic Sonic's parts ARE more "flat", there are still times when the landscape will pan out, or switch directions, giving old Zones we're used to seeing a fresh, exciting spin!
The Zones for Modern Sonic are just as interesting. It's all about your control over your speed and quick thinking.
All the Zones are beautifully designed. It's as much fun to play them as it is to sit and watch someone else play, just so you can take in the amazing details of it all! The Zones are expansive and fun to explore, just like in the original games. Once you've beaten an area, you just want to go back and play it again to see what you missed or to see how much better you could do it another time around.
If you're a Sonic fan, I highly recommend this game. It has all the spirit of Sonic that we old-timers are used to with all the glitz and spin of the newer games. Definitely give this game a try!
