They gave it an 8.5. It looks pretty good.

Please can we not make threads specifically for IGN reviews. If you want to make a review thread, make a general review thread.

This. Also, I saw this review at least 2 days ago.

Did they actually play the game or was this the score that came out of a random generator?

They also gave Sonic 4 an 8, and that game was a travesty.

To make up for the review on PixelJunk Sidescroller, they had two people do this review.

Makes me happy, Sonic Generations is going to be a blast.

Yep, these threads are fucking annoying. It's baffling that there are still people who haven't realized yet how shitty IGN and their reviews are.

It's IGN, it's an exclusive review (like with almost every game now because no one cares for the shady exlusive review model anymore but IGN and a few print magazines) ... everyone who takes that shit seriously is an idiot.

Sonic is dead.

It looks really good, I enjoyed the demo, but I'll get it next year due to money constraints. Sonic is getting good again, Sonic Colours was really good too, so I hope he is coming back.

Sega does what Nintendo don't!

And what a coincidence ... 8.5 ... a minimum score that many publishers demand for giving exclusive reviews or allowing reviews to go online before an embargo ends.

I don't trust IGN but I hope this game is actually good. Sonic games are not the same as they were before. Let's hope this is the return of the sonic we know and love.

I have to imagine that's an 8.5 on the "when compared to every other Sonic game released over the past decade" scale.

I've been reading a bunch of boards where people have been playing the game early and other than coming to the conclusion that hardcore Sonic fans are completely fucking nuts ("His spin dash physics are all wrong...BROKEN") The game really does sound like a love letter to Sonic just like the IGN review says.

I loved the demo both classic and modern feel spot on, I'm more excited for this game than ever. Some of the musical remixes of old tunes are up on youtube also and they all sound spot on. The fancy hub world, the look, the level choices and the fact that Colours was great give me a ton of hope for the game.

Not even a link to the review in the post? Lazy...

It sounds like the guy really wants to hate it. Still really looking forward to the game.

@Redbullet685 How else are the IGN haters going to know IGNs latest move?

Unless you have something to contribute to the fact, this thread is kinda pointless. I'm sure if people wanted to know the IGN score, they would go to IGN.

Furthermore, the discussion that has stemmed from this information is clearly not productive and, as a result, this thread is being locked.
