Oh, Sonic, Sonic, Sonic… How long has it been since you had a good game? I suppose that answer will vary depending on how much individual Sonic fans are willing to forgive, but the general consensus is that it’s been far too long. I myself am a huge Sonic fan despite being a die-hard Nintendo fanboy. While other kids were reading comics about some lame guys in tights called Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man, I was busy reading up on the blue rodent with an attitude and an appetite for chili dogs. Despite my love for Sonic, playing Sonic and the Secret Rings for the Wii felt like each member of Sonic Team coming up to me one by one and slapping me in the face and spitting in my eye. Needless to say, that game completely turned me off of the franchise I once adored (at the time I didn’t have a 360 or PS3 for that Sonic the Hedgehog to do it for me). Praise the gaming gods for Sonic Generations! Ever since its first trailer, the game has looked great, but fans (myself included) remained understandably skeptical. Now that the game is out, and I’ve spent countless hours with it, I am very pleased to say that Sonic Generations broke the curse of the Sonic Cycle and is the best Sonic game I have played in a long time.
