First Sonic Generations Reviews Go Live

by October 24, 2011

Positive impressions inside

Firstly, look away right now if you want to stay fresh. Spoilers are ahead.

That’s right – reviews are coming in for Sonic Generations! Courtesy of German publications Videogamezone.de and 360 Live, we can now begin to get a good idea of how Sonic Team’s latest title is shaping up.

Of course spoilers are ahead, so for that reason I won’t delve into the details. You can find the Videogamezone review here (translated for non-German speakers). Below are the mains points from the 360 Live review, courtesy of Sonic Stadium:

A couple days ago, I bought a magazine with the first German review. There’s a bit of kinda-new information in it, but first the score and and Pros and Cons.
Graphics: 7
Sound: 8
Controls: 8
Total: 8.5 of 10

Pros:
-Fast paced
-Lot’s of unlockables
-Different paths
-Completely dubbed in German with the professional Sonic X actors

Cons:
-The approximately 30 frames per second slightly slow the pace of the game
-Few Boss fights
-Camera ocassionally unreasonable
-Loading times could be shorter
——
Unlockables: 14 character biographies, 50 pieces of music, 130 concept-arts and 13 videos
A few skills: Run faster under water, lower loss of speed while going up slopes and 8 more
Sonic 1 will cost 7777 points
Chaos Emeralds seem to be obtained from bosses: “(…) Or the fight with Metal Sonic to get one of the seven magical Emerald-Crystals (lol)”

Main game (9 Zones, 18 acts) will take about 4 hours, adding missions, Emeralds etc, 3 more. Not sure if this means collecting the Emeralds has nothing to do with the story. Might be that you have to recollect them to use SS in stages. But I dunn

And there’s a bit on the CE. The statue is 15cm and the ring is about 4 cm in diameter.
