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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

I'm torn. I want to just pan this game because it's a much abridged version of the original title, but on the other hand, it is fun, so I can't just write it off entirely. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Justin Hurst
