Why did no one tell me this game was so good?

Sonic Generations.

On whim I bought it because it was on sale… hooooly shit.

The game is SO impressive.

The music is amazing, the scenery and play is fun and fast (Modern sonic styled stages are SO good! OMG SO SMOOTH MOTIONS WHILE MAINTAINING SPEED), and although it's got a shit storyline WHO CARES? SETS YOU UP AND IS REALLY REALLY FUN OMG

And then there's the crowning moment of awesome in this game. Everyone will have that moment in this game I guarantee it. For me it was City Escape.

Seriously. I played that level SO much as a kid and to play through it again but like that, with the truck being the way it was, it REALLY ADDED FRENZY AND IT FELT SO GOOD. Skyrim hasn't made me feel as good as this game has. Skyrim made me feel like a badass when I killed dragons, and it makes me kinda happy, but this game made me smile an entire night :)

I haven't beaten it yet though, that's today's job!

Holy crap, they were actually able to improve on something from Sonic Adventure 2? I guess there's hope for Sonic after all, I might have to get this.

Uprated by Kenon? I think I'll buy it then, because the only other person I've heard talking about this was JakeX/Requiem, and it was for the music alone.

Well for one, the music does kick ass.

That for instance is one of my favorite themes I have ever heard for a boss fight ever.

The 3d sonic parts in a bit feel a bit less control-y than Sonic Adventure 2 does, but it does transitions in between it and out of it, and it feels WAY faster than that game. Rushing through the levels just feels good :).

Literally the only thing I wish more was that you could lightwave dash off any ring string in the game :)

I just bought it a few days ago. It's pretty nice to see the progression Sonic went through since Unleashed. I'm really liking it too. The level design for the Modern Sonic stages are a lot more involving than they have been for awhile (barring Colors) and the Classic Sonic stages are great too, though not as dense or smart as the originals. Sky Sanctuary is a total great.

Kilin: When did you talk to JakeX?! =D

At first the best part of this was when the truck had FRIGGIN BUZZ SAWS…But then it turned out the truck could fly, so that was the coolest thing ever.
