Set across three defining eras from 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog video game history, the instantly recognizable environments of Sonic Generations have been re-built in stunning HD and are now playable in both classic side scrolling 2D from 1991, as well as modern 3D style found in Sonic's most recent adventures.
Each incarnation of Sonic in Sonic Generations comes complete with his trademark special move, Spin Dash and Spin Attack for Classic Sonic, and the Homing Attack and Sonic Boost for Modern Sonic. An innovative new interactive menu system allows for complete immersion in Sonic's universe with favorite characters and hidden treasures gradually being revealed throughout the game.
Sonic Generations takes place after Sonic Colours. Sonic's friends are throwing him a birthday party when a creature called The Time Eater intrudes and sucks them all into various time portals. Sonic finds himself in a strange place called White Space and has to find and rescue his friends. Along the way you are given the choice between playing the current Sonic and old Sega style Sonic.
I haven't played much of Sonic in the past, it was never a game that I ever really got into, but I got given this for my birthday from my brother, so naturally I had to give this a good try. After playing some of it I have to say that Sonic is still not my kind of game, but this was fun enough and one that I can play every now and again without having to worry about the kids watching it.
This is fun game and a good way to combine both old and new Sonic. If you are a Sonic fan then this is one to play. For me, it isn't a favourite but it's a good game.
