I don't even know why I bought this game, or why I even tried to get the highest record on every stage. But to say the least I enjoyed for what it is, and it's very amusing seeing all the Sonic Fan-made characters (not really)

Ive been playing sonic games since I can remember. One of my favorite game series.
I enjoyed playing this game ALOT. Sonic generations is one of the best sonic games thats come out in recent years.
pros:
-great level design
-you go fast
-great controlls, feels smooth (using a wired 360 controller)
-Great replayability
-a few good mods here and there.

Cons:
-Game is short. Finished the game in under 4 hours. Even for sonic, damn thats fast (see what I did there?)
-story is meh, not bad, but not great.
-I find that the 2D sections in modern sonic's levels are redundant, considering that half the game IS 2D sonic.
-the final boss is pathetic

In conclusion, this is a great sonic game, far better than sonic boom. It has its problems, but its not a deal breaker. I give Sonic generations an 7.5/10
Pick it up sometime, on sale or something (*cough cough* ♥♥♥ *cough cough*) even if your not a sonic fan, im sure you'll like it.

This is probably the best Sonic game of all time, however, that isn´t saying much.

I can´t stress this enough. This is a Sonic game. If you buy a Sonic game, it´s because you want to go fast. I shouldn´t have to wait for a platform to come back or for the level event to end to continue moving. If I wanted to do that, I could´ve easily bought a Mario game. Some levels are extremely long, and horribly paced, and at times when you want to go fast, the game will simply not allow it by placing an enemy that, unless you´ve played the same level over and over again (seriously, this game borderlines on trial and error, a lot), you won´t see coming, stoping you dead on your tracks.

I´d recommend it if you´re a hardcore Sonic fan, and if you can deal with bad level design. And yes, the music is great, as usual.

Also, why is this 2011 game so hard to run? Barely any graphic setting and no real way to adjust them. It´s not really well optimized.

This game is heavily worth it, better with a controller (obviously). The next Sonic game gotta be even better.

What a great and fun game. There's so much fun to be had in this jam packed game.

First of all this game is more like a HD re-release of the previous Sonic games with so many oldshool levels. The thing that this game has tat separates itself from the other god awful games is that you can play each main level with the old sonic where it's more like a 2D sidescroller and there is the modern Sonic where it's more like the modern games hence the name "modern" Sonic. I personally prefer oldschool Sonic because old is gold and it's way more challenging and fun.
You cant go wrong with this game, Sonic fan or not, it's just plain fun and everyone can enjoy this game.

I cannot play this game. It doesn't let me start the game properly, and always tells me "input not supported" whenever I try to start it. Still, its a good game.

Pros:

-You have both types of Sonic gameplay (Oldschool and Modern).

-The stages are fun, unique, nostalgic and provide with a decent challenge.

-A new skill system which provides a little depth to Sonic.

Cons:

-The game is short, even for a Sonic game.

-The final boss battle is lackluster.

-It is a huge shame that you can't play as the other Sonic characters such as Shadow, Knuckles, Blaze etc.

Going into this i figured it would be just like every sonic game, The first level was fast and fun while giving you the impression that it would all be that way. However when playing this further i realized it is nothing like the others, Every level was enjoyable both Classic and Modern. Controls were a bit sticky feeling on Classic but that could of just been the program i'm using to emulate a Xbox360 Controller from a PS4 Controller.

Gameplay - it's enjoyable and is definitely one of the better modern sonic games (Not a fan of the whole boost to win thing), Highly recommend this to current fans of Sonic and old Fans from the Classic Era.

Story - It is kinda generic. Enemy attack, Sonic must save his friends, You defeat him in a Special Transformation... same thing as the last. However the way the story played out and the whole idea behind Classic Sonic was pretty cool.

Features - This game is choked full of Secrets/Unlockables and to my surprise even had a few *only Unlocked through Codes* That you can find online... no games do that anymore, Last game i remember was Black Ops 2. You can unlock some of the BEST Sonic Songs in history, You can unlock artwork, Collect Statues, Replay all Cutscenes. Possibly the best part about the Features in this game is that EVERY SONG can be added to any level at any time before playing it. You can beat a Boss then later replay that boss with *Live & Learn* instead, This added many hours of gameplay for me. I loved racing down a Modern City Escape with *Endless Possibilities* Playing.

Mods - This game has many many MANY Mods, Sonic Team themselves even endorsed the idea of Mods in this game by allowing them. You have mods allowing you to play as Shadow on City Escape and instead of using a board you are riding his motorcycle from the game *Shadow the hedgehog*, all the way to playing as Silver or even changing the looks of Bosses. P.S. - Not sure about Mod Stages... have not gotten that far.

For $20 i Definitely would recommend for old and new Fans of Sonic, Getting this on sale is a must if possible.

7.8/10
