Sonic Generations on Playstation 3

As Sonic celebrates his birthday with his friends, a mysterious new enemy called the Time Eater appears, sucking everyone through various 'time holes' and scattering them across different places in Sonic's history. Sonic finds himself in strange dimension known as White Space, where everything has been drained of color. As Sonic searches for his friends, he encounters his younger self, Classic Sonic, along with a younger Classic Tails. As the two Tails determine that Time Eater's actions are damaging time itself, both Modern and Classic race through their history, restoring time to normal and rescuing their friends. They soon discover that the mastermind behind Time Eater is none other than Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik, who has joined forces with his past self to erase Sonic's victories from history. Although the Time Eater manages to overwhelm the two Sonics, the support of their friends and the power of the Chaos Emeralds allow them to become Super Sonics and defeat the two Eggmen. As Sonic finally celebrates his birthday and teaches Classic Sonic some new tricks before he and Classic Tails travel back to their time, the two Eggmen find themselves stuck in White Space, with seemingly no way out.

Specific thoughts coming from a PC player. The PC port of this game is near flawless, with minor glitches very rarely. I say port because Generations first released on consoles. However, similar to most multiplatform games at the time, Generations was made for the 360 and ported to the PS3. Below, I'll outline the differences between all three versions of this game: Framerate - 360 has a pretty stable framerate (locked at 30 fps) - PS3 less stable (not sure if PS3 is unlocked 60 fps, similar to Unleashed) - PC obviously has a stable 60 fps Texture Quality - 360 supposedly has higher res textures than PS3 (if true, the difference must be extremely small because I can't notice it) - PC gives you options for max graphical settings; it obviously looks the best Resolution - PC is native 1080p - PS3 and 360 say it's 1080p, but I have a feeling it's 720p upscaled to 1080p because that's more realistic for the consoles - it potentially could be sub-hd upscaled to 1080p.... it's pretty difficult to say because of the cartoony, very nice art style - PS3 actually has higher quality cutscenes compared to 360 and PC. Those lower quality cutscenes look really bad... But with the high quality, the PS3 cutscenes suffer from some minor screen tearing Loading Times - PC is really fast - 360 is pretty good - PS3 load times are the main reason people bash this version, so I went in expecting the worse. The most frustrating load time is when you enter a stage. This loading time is pretty long.... But thank God, when you lose a life and/or restart the stage from the pause menu, the loading time is not nearly as long. This makes repetitive stage restarts no where near as frustrating as I was expecting. An unexpected annoyance was that when entering a modern stage, the first playthrough of that stage will have a small music delay at the start. It's not too apparent in later game, and overall doesn't bring down the experience. Additional Content - the 360 and PS3 versions include a Sonic 1 emulation in the game - this emulation is actually fantastic; Sonic 1 looks great So overall, the PS3 version is much better than I thought. This is mainly because of 2 worries that were reversed: the frame rate and loading times. I thought that going from a perfect 60 fps to an unstable 30 fps would be a bad time, but the difference does not affect the gameplay. Somehow, it still feels really good to play. Yes, a little less responsive at times, but overall still a great version of Sonic Generations. This could possibly be thanks to the Hedgehog engine's amazing motion blur; making the game seem faster than it actually is. The PC version is still the best experience, but the PS3 version is honestly not that far off.
