In my personal belief, Sonic Generations is perhaps the best Sonic The Hedgehog game released since 2011. And in a way it should be, as the team of developers could pick literally almost any Sonic stages in all of Sonic's history to remix for this game! While the game turned out fairly nice, the Classic Sonic stages have a wonky reworking of the actual classic gameplay and physics that made the original Sonic games work so well back in the 1990's. Honestly speaking, some of the "chip tunes" remixes of the modern stages for the Classic Sonic stages in Generations weren't that great either. However, overall the game was very good, with excellent musical remixes and fun challenges that integrated Sonic's friends into the game without them bogging the game down in slow or unusual gameplay mechanics. Some people even say that Sonic Forces should have been Sonic Generations 2 instead!

Sometimes I wish we had a Sonic Generations 2, especially with the PlayStation 3 / Xbox 360 / Windows variant of Sonic Generations eschewing the excellent levels from the great portable Sonic games from the Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket, GBA, DS, and other handheld platforms. As a matter of fact, even the 3DS variant of Generations only had remixes from one Zone from the portable Sonic games even though it was on a portable platform itself! Funny enough, the Zone it was remixing was from a DS Sonic game, so back then it was something that wasn't even from a game released long enough ago to elicit nostalgia from players, that being a DS game which was released only a few short years earlier. However at least the 3DS variant of Generations had those stages and a few other exclusive stages, making it worth playing for those Acts if nothing else.

What are your thoughts about Sonic Generations? All these years later, does the game still stand up well? And what would you want or expect from a Sonic Generations 2?

Never played it but just saw a video and it looks good.
