It's less the length of game as a whole and more the size of the levels for me I think. There are 30 tiny levels rather than between 8 and 12 big levels - with no bosses at the end - making them feel like they are ridiculously easy. I suppose Colours levels were quite short, but I found those levels more challenging. In general, it's mainly just waaaaay too easy for me. This might be the easiest Sonic game I've ever played I think, and I don't think any are difficult.shrekfan246 said:The length really isn't something I'm going to hold against it. I can beat Sonic 1 in under an hour. Sonic 2 doesn't take me much longer if I'm not bothering with chaos emeralds or anything. Sonic 3 and Sonic Mania are a bit longer, but I can beat them in a few hours as well; I beat Sonic Mania the same day I started playing it. Sonic Generations isn't much longer, and most of that is because of its cutscenes and the padding that it has in the form of the missions you have in each level.
However, if you loved it, that's fair. I didn't dislike it, I just found it pretty lukewarm. I don't think it deserves the panning it will inevitably get from critics. As a reference point, if I'd give Mania, Generations and Colours a solid 9 or above, and Lost World a 7 and I'd probably give it this game a 6.5 I think. I'll probably return and replay the levels to get better scores so can't dislike it that much.
