Short length and minor headaches aside, Sonic Generations is the best game for Sega’s flagship mascot to come around in a long time.

Sonic has been through some rough days in recent years, and part of the charm of this game is that it’s not afraid to acknowledge that, even calling out the ridiculousness of recent titles.

Purists may wonder how Sonic Team can possibly make a better game, especially without the inclusion of classic Sonic. However, modern Sonic’s levels were often more fun than classic’s. It’s almost as if Sega was trying to tell long-time fans that Sonic has plenty of great things in store for the future, and modern Sonic is more than capable. We’re hoping that Generations is just the start of that.
