Sonic Generations 

 

Sonic Generations may be the best home console Sonic video game of all time. It pays homage to the past, and it includes the present all at the same time. You have probably seen our extensive coverage of this game on the website. Well I was able to recently purchase and play this game on the Xbox 360. There are also PS3, and PC versions of Sonic Generations. A Nintendo 3DS version is still on our request listing. Kind of a shame the Wii got left out.

We have Sonic from twenty years ago, and modern era Sonic. There are 2D and 3D levels in Sonic Generations. Each world has three levels. Players must complete all three levels with both old and new Sonic. Then a challenge for each level must be performed. That provides us with a key to unlock the boss level.

Sonic Generations is awesome looking. There are some explosions and mild violence as we bash and crash through things. An example would be running down the side of a building, and these police vehicles chasing after us. When we hit the bottom they all come crashing into the ground. The Sonic universe characters look fantastic. I loved seeing the difference between the two Sonics.

I recognized many of the voices in Sonic Generations. A few sounded a bit off, but that is okay with all this amazing music. The sound effects are tried and true Sonic the Hedgehog sounds. Like collecting the rings. There are rockish songs that Sonic fans will appreciate. Songs like: “All Hail Shadow.” That song is not my personal favorite but others here at Family Friendly Gaming appreciate it. And they sing along - loudly.

What could make a Sonic game better? How about skills that can be purchased, and installed on your character? Yes that is included in Sonic Generations. Along with tons, and I mean tons of unlockable content. There are enough levels to warrant the price of Sonic Generations. I used my personal spending money and feel it was well spent on this home console title.

The controls are fast and furious in Sonic Generations. I got going so fast sometimes I could barely recognize upcoming issues. Sonic Generations is kind and warns the player of impending doom. I love getting to play levels in 2D and 3D. This is the Sonic game fans have been asking for - for years. Sonic Generations is a blast to play.

Sonic Generations teaches us the past of the Sonic franchise. A time traveling enemy is the cause of all the trouble. Sonic fights to free those enslaved by robots. He has good friends, and loves those chili hot dogs. There are various traps and spikes to avoid in Sonic Generations. There is a minor lesson in enjoying concepts like running free.
