Sonic Generations for Xbox 360
Sonic Generations is a platform game in which characters control the titular Sonic the Hedgehog in two forms: Classic and Modern, in which they must collect the seven Chaos Emeralds, free their friends and stop a mysterious entity from creating time holes.
The game features levels derived from 20 years of Sonic history, spreading across three eras, each having three stage and two bosses from previous games: Classic, Dreamcast and Modern, which are played as either Classic Sonic or Modern Sonic. Classic Sonics’ levels are strictly two dimensional side scrolling stages, using classic moves like the Spin Attack and Spin Dash, while Modern Sonics’ levels follow the 2D/3D style game-play of Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Colours, featuring techniques such as boosting and homing attacks.
As well as classic power-ups such as Invincibility and Speed Shoes, certain levels have unique power-ups, such as skateboards in City Escape and Wisp powers in Planet Wisp. Sonic Generations was released in November 2011 for the Xbox 360 and was very well received by critics and fans of the phenomenally successful franchise alike.
Sonic Generations is a must play game and a worthy instalment of the Sonic series, featuring very good visual effects and game-play.
