It is because Sonic Generations is so focused that it is truly able to shine. The polish in this title is astounding, with each level gorgeously crafted to represent the era and game it has come from. Even the levels from the atrocity that was Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 are fun to play, though not fun enough for anyone to ever forgive Sega for that game.

The remix of Sonic 2’s Chemical Plant perfectly relives the experience of playing your old Genesis and Sonic Unleashed’s Rooftop Run delights as it takes you down the side of a building and through a wall of confetti. If you’ve got a group of Sonic junkies for friends, you can take to the online leaderboards and compete to see who’s the speediest in Ranking Attack and 30 Second Trial.
