Sonic Generations is an action adventure game developed by Sega. Released to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the original Sonic the Hedgehog game, it uses some of the classic elements of that game with new and exciting features that players will love. Players can still make Sonic spin into overdrive and race through different levels, and they must still collect gold rings and gems to get points. The game introduces two levels of play, and those modes let players experience Sonic in a new way.

Classic play takes players back to the traditional world found in the earlier games. Modern play takes the two-dimensional look of the original games and introduces a new three-dimensional game play. Regardless of which level you choose, you still need to complete the same goals. Players work through the levels to find the missing Chaos Emeralds. After locating those missing gems, you find out more about the Time Eater. This mysterious character created a series of holes that let Sonic go back in time and explore some of the levels found in the earlier games. If you ever wanted to know what the original Sonic the Hedgehog game would look like in 3-D, now is your chance.

Reviews of the game are generally positive, and some reviewers rated the game more than nine stars out of 10 stars. Players love that it offers a spin on the classic game they played as kids. Sonic still performs a spin dash move, which lets him gain speed before zipping across the screen, and players can still use a spin attack, which lets Sonic spin across the screen and attack a foe. New to the game is a Sonic Boost, and this unique move will help players get through the game faster than they got through the originals.

Though this is a new game, it lets players seek out hidden levels and unlock hidden levels that recreate the feel of Sonic the Hedgehog games from the 1990s. Those levels feature amazing graphics and gorgeous colors that offer a modern twist on the classic game. Players also love the the Classic and Modern levels are so different. Each level has its own unique layout and background that gives players a new experience each time they start the level. Once you start playing Sonic Generations, you will remember all the fun you had making the hedgehog spin, race and jump for the gold.
