Sonic the Hedgehog is back! The Sega platformer returns with all his friends and eras all rolled into one game, Sonic Generations. The whole gang is attacked by a new enemy the Time Eater and this why you can jump from era to era, sonic to sonic. They've shoved about 20 years of Sonic history into this one game moving from 2D and 3D almost seamlessly.
Some nice features include earning points to unlock special abilities at the shop and also the original the original Sega Genesis game. Despite some painful cut scenes clearly meant for a younger audience, the gameplay is fantastic, it's fast paced and a frenetic roller coaster ride both in 2D and in 3D.
The only real hiccup I found was sometimes when you're in the 3D mode it's harder to navigate and it breaks the momentum of the game. At first glance the game may look like impossible chaos but it's not, you'd be surprised how easy it is to understand what's happening when you're the one playing not the one watching.
The gameplay is inventive, nostalgia inducing, and it's definitely worth it for any fan of the Sonic series. I give Sonic Generations 7 coins out of 10.
