Number 10. – Sonic Generations
So, have Sega succeeded in making the best ever Sonic game? Yes, absolutely. They have taken the original premise of a classical platformer with boss fights played at high speeds and ramped it up to eleven thanks to the devious level design, funky effects and plethora of worlds. Added to this is an even better game in 3D which delivers the true Sonic experience in a new way. Granted, it’s been done before but not anywhere near this well. As mentioned previously if this was all the game was it would be a pleasure to play anyway, but thanks to the volume and variety of challenge acts plus all the extras and things to spur you on to better scores and the like if you want to, the package is embellished even further with delights. It’s not perfect, but it’s definitely the best Sonic money can buy. Sega have finally altered the paradigm. Sonic Generations is a good 2D platformer and a great 3D one. It’s the best of both worlds.
