Sonic Generations is a platformer which commemorates the 20th Anniversary of the Sonic the Hedgehog series which began on the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive in 1991. The game blends the gameplay from older and newer Sonic titles by including both a 2.5D side-scrolling Classic Mode, and a 3D Modern mode.
During a birthday celebration, a strange entity known as the the Time Eater arrives, sending all of Sonic's friends to different moments in history through time holes. After encountering older versions of themselves, both Sonic and Tails must restore both time and space, while rescuing their friends.
Sonic Generations received positive reviews with an average score of 78%, praised for its level design, visuals, overall fun, and tribute to previous Sonic titles, though criticized by some for issues with controls and graphic framerate.
While the majority of the trophies are not too difficult, there are some that can be quite challenging or even frustrating, such as for collecting all the Red Rings, or defeating the final boss without taking any damage. One full playthrough is required, with a lot of mopping-up afterwards. The 3 online trophies are not difficult, though have been reported to be glitched by a number of players. Check out our Advice tab for more details on this.
Expect roughly 20 hours of gameplay for the Platinum, depending on your skills and whether or not you experience problems with the online trophies.
Your first order of business is to simply play the game from beginning to end. During this playthrough, we recommend attempting to get as many S Ranks as possible, just to make the mopping-up less time consuming later on. Yet since you will be receiving a special power-up after clearing the game while allows for getting the S Ranks easier, don't worry if you miss some along the way. During this stage, you should unlock all the story-related trophies, as well as a few others naturally.
Once you've finished your first playthrough, it's time to go back with the power-up and mop-up any S Ranks you still need. until you've unlocked the Big Bang trophy.
Next, you can move onto the Challenges. There are 90 in total, to which you'll need to complete all the Friend Challenges for the Bonds Of Friendship trophy, clear 45 of them for the Halfway Point trophy, and the remaining 45 for the Mission Accomplished trophy.
By now you should know the levels quite well, which is why we save the collectibles until now. Finding all of them will award you with the (Hedge) Hogging It All Up trophy, as well as the Red Ring Collector trophy and a few other collectible-related ones.
After that, simply mop-up whatever you're still missing. Be sure to check out the Sonic Generations Trophy Guide links under our Links tab to see what you're missing and their requirements.
At any point, you can also work on the three online trophies. These include completing the Ranking Attack for each stage for both the Join The Ranks and Time Attacker trophies, as well as participating in a 30 Second Trial for the A 30-Second Test trophy.
