Aside from the occasional lag (which happens regardless of the card, I've got a GTX 580 @ 800mhz core), the game is amazing. Having played both console versions the choice is clear - just make sure to hook up your 360 controller! You'll be able to play at 1080p resolutions or better, get 60fps and much better anti-alliasing. The added framerate does wonders for the expressive animation. Not to mention the price, $25 vs. $50.

As for the game itself, it's the best Sonic since Sonic 3 & Knuckles! The only minor quip I have is that Classic Sonic's rolling physics aren't quite up to snuff but it's miles beyond what we saw in Sonic 4. Anyone touting the greatness of the Adventure games is blinded by nostalgia or was very young when those were released. Everything beyond Sonic/Shadow levels was poorly executed, not to mention the godawful camera.

Don't be dissuaded by accusations that the game is short, there's a slew of challenges which put a spin on each level to the point of completely altering the gameplay. I've clocked 12 hrs on the PC and have quite a few challenges to go!

I've been a Sonic fan since I first picked the series up all the way back on the Sega Genesis and recent Sonic games have left alot to be desired. In fact the last Sonic game I truly sat down and played was Sonic Adventure 2 then after that the series sort of tanked out as if Sega had no clue what fans wanted from the series. Game after game tried to recapture the magic that made the earlier games so great yet time and time again they failed to achieve. Now we have Sonic Generations, celebrating 20 years of Sonic, but is it celebrating the right years?

I'm here to answer that question with a huge YES. Sonic Generations does a fantastic job at bringing both classic Sonic (the one we all know and love from the Genesis era, pot belly and all) and modern Sonic together in one of Sonic's best adventures yet. Gone are the gimmicks of past games, there are no talking swords, were-hogs, or pointless side characters to play. In fact all the main gameplay is done as either classic or modern Sonic with the side characters playing only a minor role here.

The storyline is fairly basic, an unknown force has started tearing through time and has capture modern Sonic's friends, scattering them throughout time and they must be rescued by completing each stage. Everything opens with a wonderful romp through Green Hill Zone as classic Sonic before cutting to modern Sonic as he celebrates his birthday (apparently classic Sonic forgot it was his birthday) with his friends. However things don't go exactly as planned as the party comes under attack by this new enemy. At first even Sonic doesn't appear to be too thrilled about running off on another adventure as everyone gasps in horror as the monster appears though Sonic simply gives a heavy sigh before his friends are kidnapped.

I never had a Sega Genesis growing up, but that didn't stop me from going over to my friends' houses and playing the fantastic Sonic the Hedgehog series on theirs. For that reason, I have very fond memories of Sonic's first 4 console outings, from Sonic the Hedgehog up through Sonic & Knuckles (let's just pretend that 3D Blast didn't exist). Unfortunately, Sonic and I parted ways for quite some time after that, barring a brief stint with Sonic Heroes on my GameCube and Sonic Rush on my DS, as well as the aforementioned classics as part of one of those Sonic collections games. But I certainly haven't been unaware of the significant decline in quality of Sonic games over the last decade or so. So when I heard that Sonic Generations was one of the best Sonic titles to come along in years, one that paid tribute to the classics that we all know and love, I knew that this was one game I'd need to check out. Sadly, I discovered that "one of the best Sonic titles to come along in years" apparently doesn't count for much.

Sonic Generations started off extremely strongly for me, aside from some annoying cutscenes and a poor attempt at giving this game some sort of plot. The game featured remakes of some of the most memorable zones from the Genesis classics, including Green Hill Zone from the original, Chemical Plant from Sonic 2, and Sky Sanctuary from Sonic & Knuckles. Each level in the game featured 2 "acts", the first being a classic version that's completely side scrolling (but still uses some impressive 3D effects from time to time) and the other being a modern version that uses the 3D version of Sonic, shifting seamlessly from 2D to 3D play.
