“[D]oesn’t skimp on speed or the fun”
Better late than never and, in the case of GameSpot, for the better. With Sonic Generations being out for two weeks it seemed like a review wasn’t coming, but it has. The score? 8/10.
The link to the full review is below, but GameSpot praise Sonic Team for hitting a “sweet spot” and describes switching from 2D to 3D as a “nice change”. It does seem that the hype was justified for the most part, and that despite Iizuka wanting to establish a new “standard of Sonic” (redesign or otherwise) Sonic Team have found a formula that works.
Our review is coming very soon, so in the meantime keep yourself occupied by checking out GameSpot’s review here.
