I am excited for the premiere of Sonic Generations on November 1st. But will it be the game Sonic fans had been hoping for over 10 years? Well, I found some early reviews on Metacritic by 2 gaming sites.
First ever review was by Spanish Video Game Zone,
"Sonic Generations takes the player on a voyage through 20 years of Sonic history. Pairing 2D-Levels with 3D-Stages Generations offers the best of both worlds and provides fans of the franchise with tons of unlockable art, music and gimmicks. Hands down one of the best Sonic games in the last 10 years."
Sascha Lohmüller, of Video Game Zone
The second review came from IGN,
"It's almost jarring to see SEGA finally deliver on their generation-old promises that SEGA "does what Nintendon't. It feels refreshing to be able to say that Sonic is good again. His upward trajectory over the last year continues and he's only gaining momentum. Sonic Generations is largely a game for the most hardcore of Sonic fans, but for the millions who have fond memories of narrowly dodging spikes, grinding on rails, or even that time he was a pinball, Sonic Generations is a game made for you."
Jack DeVries & Brian Altano, of IGN
Keep in mind, these are just only two reviews. But so far, the game's reception has been pretty positive from both sites. So we will have to see more reviews come fly in over this weekend and Monday, including one from our fellow Jim Sterling. So stay tune.
