    A great celebration for Sonic's 20th Anniversary.

    Sonic Generations is a game made to celebrate Sonic's 20th Anniversary and it's quite a good celebration for his 20th Anniversary. It's already said to be one of the best 3D Sonic games ever and I agree. Also note that t... Read Full Review

    One of the best platformer games ever.

    Super Mario Galaxy 2 was a game I was surprised to have gotten made, considering Mario's previous 3D games, Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, never got any sequels. I've spent countless hours on this game and here... Read Full Review

    It's about time we get a Sonic the Hedgehog 4.

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4 was a game that Sonic fans waited a long time for and being a Sonic fan myself, I was pretty excited for this game. Sonic 4 is the first game in the original series since 1994's Sonic & Knuckles. Peo... Read Full Review

    A nice addition to the original Mega Man series.

    I'm a longtime Sonic fan. I was either 6 or 7 when I first played a Sonic game. I own various Sonic games, 2D and 3D. Now, I honestly don't think this game is so bad. But still, this game isn't as good when compared to m... Read Full Review
