Review: Sonic Generations (3DS)

How many times is Sonic the Hedgehog going to “come back?” I understand that people want him to return to form and be in a game akin to the original trilogy back on the Sega Genesis, but seriously! Every time he’s in a new title gamers bring the topic up. Perhaps out of sympathy for said gamers or sheer coincidence, Sonic Generations for the 3DS attempts to address these problems by allowing players to control two distinct Sonics from the series’ expansive library. Two Sonics also means twice the Tails, which strangely means four tails, which if you think about it… never mind, just keep reading.

I enjoyed the game, don’t get me wrong, but it wasn’t what I was hoping it would be. Apparently the console version is a lot better, so I’ll definitely have to check that one out. Anyone out there play both? Or at least the Xbox/PS3 version for comparison?

I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.
