Sonic Generations review for the Ps3/ Xbox 360
One of the
biggest debates between Sonic fans is which sonic is better classic Sonic or
modern sonic. Classic sonic has taken
more of a back seat to modern Sonic at least since 1998 when Sonic adventure
came out for the dreamcast in 1998. Some sonic fan boys even go as far as
asking Sega to bring classic Sonic back. Well the Sonic team and Sega decided
to answer the cries and complaints of classic Sonic fan boys with Sonic
feel obligated to admit that it feels great to have Classic Sonic back
especially since the first Sonic game I ever played was Sonic the hedgehog 2.
That was the game when tails first appeared as Sonics partner. I would use
sonic my brother would use tails and we would have hours of classic sonic fun.
Sure we weren't able to pass the chemical plant until we were older but we had
a lot of fun playing. Eventually beat the game we even got supersonic too not
that we needed him he was just really fun to play as and if you beat the game
with Super Sonic you get a special ending. I love Classic Sonic because of the
nostalgia rush I feel when I play as the cute little guy plus Classic Sonic had
some fun gams. Modern Sonic is awesome because he is fast and when he has a
decent voice actor and the dialogue is good its nice to hear some of his jokes.
eater interrupts Sonic's birthday party and whisks all of Sonic's friends through time and space placing
them in this weird empty void. When Sonic races through a level he restores the
color and life due to his super speed counteracting time eaters abilities. Race
through act 1 as Classic Sonic and then act 2 as modern Sonic in order to
restore a level. Eventually Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic meet so they team up
also Modern and Classic Tails meet up. You can also collect chaos emeralds by
doing boss battles and rival battles which is what you have to do in order to
face the last boss. Many stages from the previous Sonic games appear such as
Green Hill zone from Sonic the hedgehog 1 and Crisis City from the infamous
game that almost ruined the Sonic gaming franchise otherwise known as 06. I
always get Green Hill Zone and Emerald Hill Zone confused so it's a good thing
I looked it up before I made a mistake. The last boss is surprise surprise
Eggman. Eggman went back in time to team up with Dr.Robotnik/ his younger self
in order to gain full mastery of the time master because he needed someone as
smart as he is and the only person that smart is himself. Sonic's friends come
and well they do absolutely nothing not even Shadow lends Sonic a hand. The two
Sonics both defeat both Eggman ( Is that even an acceptable word) so time and
space is restored. Classic Sonic then has to return to his own time which is
the most emotional part of the game in my opinion. Seriously I felt like I was
going to cry when Classic Sonic and Classic Tails left laugh at me if you want
but I felt like I was saying goodbye to my childhood.
Sonic gameplay is more focused on plat forming than Modern Sonic gameplay.
Classic Sonic does not have the boost, homing attack, quick step or drift.
However Classic Sonic has his traditional spin dash that you can charge up in
order to blast through the levels. When you play a Classic Sonic level you feel
as if you have traveled back to the good old Sega Genesis days which is a good
feeling the gameplay for Classic Sonic truly is as good as it was in the old
days. The classic goal posts are even at the end of every level what more could
you want from Classic Sonic gameplay.
gameplay is much faster than Classic Sonic gameplay. Using the boost at the
appropriate times will allow you to complete the level much faster. The faster
you beat the level the higher your score. Playing as Modern Sonic really makes
you feel like a hedgehog with the ability to move at the speed of sound. In the
later Modern Sonic levels there are even areas where Sonic can use the light
dash. The overall best addition to the gameplay is the ability to turn
supersonic in any level once you collect all 7 chaos emeralds this makes you
want to replay the levels as super Sonic which gives generations a high level
or replay value which is really important for a shorter game to have especially
one without an exciting multiplayer mode. As a matter of fact there is no
multiplayer mode in this game. Basically fans of classic Sonic will be pleased
with Classic Sonic gameplay and fans of modern sonic will be pleased with
modern sonic gameplay.
soundtrack in generations is amazing. The game has a lot of the older Sonic
sound tracks. Like city escape from Sonic adventure battle 2 and a remixed
stardust speedway soundtrack from Sonic Cd. The best part is that before you
pick a level you can change the level bg to any bgm you have in the game. You can
also play music you have downloaded on your console.
generations is an amazing game and in my opinion the best 3d sonic game made
since Sonic adventure battle 2. After the horrendous game Sonic 06 it looked
like the Sonic franchise was going to die out forever. A lot of the 3d sonic
games after 06 weren't that bad but just weren't amazing. Sonic colors is the
best one after Generations followed by unleashed. Sonic Generations gets a 9/10.
This is a really good Sonic game best in years since the horrible 06 which is
why this game deserves praise. I was tempted to give this game a 10 out of 10
but that would have been slightly biased. As one of this games few faults is
that it has low replay value. You can replay the levels again but there really
isn't much to do. Also some of the extra levels are extremely tedious.
My favorite Rival Battle Classic Sonic vs Metal Sonic
I wish The doomsday zone from Sonic 3 was in the game that would have been awesome. Hyper Sonic would have been cool too except
Also check out This awesome hd remake video of The Doomsday Zone.
