SONIC GENERATIONS (G)
Ps3/xbox 360, $99.95 ★★★★ Old-school Sonic and modern Sonic both star in this highspeed romp through the best of Sonic past. Many classic levels return in re-imagined form and the gameplay sees 2D and 3D sequences taking equal billing. One minute the player is running through loops and catapulting off bounce pads from side-on, the next sprinting into the screen, leaping between grind rails. The balance is good and the vibe is every bit as bright and energetic as fans would expect. Out now.
