The ultimate celebration of 20 Years of Sonic gaming, Sonic Generations delivers the definitive experience for Sonic fans new and old.

Sonic's universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power comes into force, creating 'time holes' which take Sonic and his friends back in time. Whilst there, Sonic runs into some very familiar characters from his past including a younger version of himself! Now they must team up to defeat their enemies, save their friends, and find out who is behind this diabolical deed.

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.

a really fun addition to my pc games, this game remakes levels from several different previous sonic games, from ocean temple to city escape, it does have some downsides though, the game sometimes lags for half a minute (could be my own computer so i didnt take that into consideration for my rating) and the final boss and the boss before that are both slightly glitchy. another problem i have is with the challenges, the levels themselves have the rating system classic from 3D sonic games, were the amount of rings, the times you died and the overall points have an effect on your rating (E, D, C, B, A and the highest being S) except for the challenges, in them you dont lose a life when you die, you just go back to the last checkpoint (if any) but your time remains the same, so you can die all you want it just doesent stop the timer or reset it to what it was at the last checkpoint. so then the rank is based on the classic time clock (S is 1:20, A is 2:30, B is 3:00 etc.) and this is infinitely more difficult for me, but the game itself and the challenges are fun and i would reccomend this game to any sonic the hedgehog fans
