Sonic Generations 3DS – Review Round-Up

Official Nintendo Magazine UK – 85
Despite the main game’s brief length, Sonic Generations is fantastic fun. As long as you don’t mind replaying the same levels to try to better your own records, which is a challenge in itself, this is an essential purchase for Sonic fans.

Sonic’s debut on Nintendo’s 3DS is a real success. The combination of the two different hedgehogs in the colorful 2D and 3D environments is pretty cool. The game is a little too easy, but there’s tons of Sonic flair and enough content to truly satisfy the player.

Sonic Generations on the Nintendo 3DS is certainly a well made game.

Nintendo Life – 70
Most of all, it never quite recaptures the original’s vibrant spirit that made it stand out 20 years ago.

Games Radar (in-house) – 70
The new levels are just too unambitious and end up playing like Sonic’s recent DS outings, only with polygonal visuals and 3D depth. That’s still a worthy experience, but when Dreamcast’s 12-years-old Emerald Coast blows its 3DS counterpart out of the water, there’s something not quite right here.

Modojo – 60
Sonic Generations doesn’t have enough meat on its bones to stand alongside the best handheld Sonics on the market, but it’s still worth a look.

Game Informer – 58
I didn’t hate every second I spent with this platformer. The music is great, the early Genesis-era stages are plain and simple fun, and the Sonic 2-style special stages make good use of the handheld’s 3D to gauge depth. However, the lack of worthwhile new content and sloppy level design makes the whole product feel like a rushed tie-in to the superior console version.

Pocket Gamer UK – 50  
With awful level design and just two hours of gameplay, Sonic Generations is not the return to form that we were hoping for.
