Is it better than the console versions? No.
Is it shorter? Yes. (By 2 zones)
Do these questions matter? Nope.

You know why we were all hyped for this game? Because it is a flashback of nearly the blue blur's whole history, with familiar environments that cast all new levels! To top it all off, you finally get to play as Sonic's original design again, as well as compete with other players via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

This version stands out from the Xbox/PS3 game due to its different worlds (With the exception of Green Hill Zone) and said online play. Players get to romp through the greatness that is Green Hill (Sonic 1), Casino Night (Sonic 2), Mushroom Hill (Sonic and Knuckles), Emerald Coast (Sonic Adventure), Radical Highway (Adventure 2), Water Palace (Sonic Rush), and Tropical Resort (Sonic Colors).

Classic Sonic plays nearly exactly like in the original Sega Genesis games! While the Genesis-era levels for him are duplicates of the originals (Without the miniboss for Mushroom Hill, though), the rest of the levels (Dreamcast-era and so on) are all-new, yet they fit with the classic platform-orientated gameplay amazingly! Eventually, Classic Sonic gets the Homing Attack, which locks onto enemies for Sonic to hit. People may not like this addition, since people recognized it from the Adventure games, which were way after the Genesis games (Although it was first in Sonic 3D Blast as you could use it when receiving the Golden Shield). The console versions of Sonic Generations also had this attack (As an optional feature), but players could enable or disable it. Personally, I think it adds to the gameplay nicely, but in case if you just don't want to use it, I suggest you just try not to press B twice in a row.

On the HD consoles, Sonic Generations is a 3D platformer that follows "Classic Sonic" and "Modern Sonic" through stages all across the history of Sonic games. The big gameplay feature of this game is that you get to experience, for instance, the same old Green Hill Zone in a 2D (but with HD graphics) perspective as before, but then in Act 2 you get to see things in a 3D perspective... which is really a whole new stage but with that look and feel of the classic. And then the contrary happens with the stages based on 3D Sonic games. It is actually a great game with its own merits.

Now back to the 3DS version. They could have very well ported it with dumbed down graphics or something, but instead they opted to do a 2D focused game with its exclusive set of stages. That means that most of the stages you will play on this version are not on the main version. This is pretty cool and since the gameplay is 2D focused, it feels more attached to the expected classic Sonic gameplay than the HD game. In this case, modern Sonic still plays in 2D but has a different set of moves and it is more focused on Speed runs than platform jumping.

Another thing that I like about this game is that it features things like Special stages (where you get the emeralds) and it has a Casino themed level from Sonic 2. These are iconic Sonic elements that are not present in the HD game.
This game also features Online versus play and side missions if you feel like doing that after you are done with the main game.

If there are a few things I didn't like are the following: 2D Sonic for some reason doesn't feel as "fluid and thight" as the classic Genesis games.

Don't call it a comeback! He's been here for years! I've been a true Sonic fan, and this is the best Sonic game right now. Taking everything from the past, including game mechanics and mixing them with a formula that worked in Sonic Rush turns this game into one of the best right now. Classic Sonic plays like a normal Sonic game. Modern Sonic plays like a Sonic Rush game. Very enjoyable. I've found barely any flaws with this game. I love it!

That's why I gave it 3 stars. Each level has 3 parts. The first two regular parts and the 3rd part is the special level for the stage. The first part place like an old school sonic game (like sonic, sonic 2). The second part plays more like a current day sonic game. While some may find this 'nice', I find it kind of annoying. For me I end up dying a lot thinking I'm in one stage vs the other and trying to either go into a ball or use an ability I don't have. I didn't pay much for this game, and I'm glad I didn't It was worth the money, but at just a few dollars that doesn't say much.

I have a friend who is super into Sonic, and at one point he use to have this game (but for some reason doesn't anymore). So I went looking to see if I could find it for him again for his birthday. And I was happy I did, and for a good price! It arrived way before it was support to, and brand new! As far as I know, he hasn't had a problem with it, and he loves it! If you're looking for a Sonic 3DS game, I would suggest this one. From what he's told me, it's fun, and challenging! So I suggest getting it! I would order from here again with the price and how fast it shipped!
