Sonic Generations

My Score:  9.3 out of 10
Sonic Generations features both the 10 and 20 year old Sonic the Hedgehog with a plot that only a mother could love. Without spoiling anything, I will say that the original Sonic canon has been tampered with, and while only die-hard Sonic the Hedgehog fanatics will even be able to tell, this is still a bit of a strange choice for Sonic Team, and I certainly didn't appreciate it.
The gameplay is excellent, and it's just as fast as a Sonic game should be. The young Sonic and Tails are so adorable it should be illegal, and the older versions in this time-traveling tale aren't half-bad either. Not cute, but not as obnoxious as they have been in previous Sonic titles. The controls are tight, and the level designs are wonderful - and you'll want to try to beat your best even after you achieve that marvelous "S" ranking. Everything in Sonic Generations is fast. From the classic 2D stages to the more modern 3D levels - rarely do you slow down…
