Zero Punctuation Trashes Sonic Generations

The Escapist : Zero Punctuation : Sonic Generations

Funniest thing I’ve watched all week. I’ve been waiting for this review for so long. I’m glad somebody else besides me pointed out the Rouge the Bat “tit shaking” challenge.

Now, predictably comment like you’re defending your life’s worth.

    Huh? There’s really nothing to defend, ha haven’t pointed game’s flaws all that much besides the tired argument that MODERN SONIC SUCKZ BALLS!!! Bhagh, blagh, blagh! 
    Overall I feel disappointed with this review, all that bashing wasn’t even funny besides 32x joke. I waited soooo long to hear his biased bashing and have fun with it but… it’s so generic and uninspired!

    Does he always talk that fast or is it because he’s reviewing Sonic? I can’t understand him

    Five Dice Game, did you just link me a video that’s a part of a series that reviews game reviewers? That’s the new saddest thing I’ve ever seen. Congratulations.

    Oh, man, I’m dying over here. Too funny.

    @MisterAdventure: He always talks that fast; it’s part of the “Zero Punctuation” gimmick.

    I can’t say I enjoyed this video, but then again the only other Yahtzee video I recall watching recently-ish is his Minecraft review and I didn’t find that one to be enjoyable either. :/
    At least on his Minecraft one he raised somewhat valid points, in this case it looks like he was trying to find a few things to hate and then clinging on to them to sound upset, not unlike that horrid “Angry Video Game Nerd” character who is all flash no substance. :/

    Dissapointment. Seriously. I know this reviews from his for so long. Any I agree with almost all his reviews. Even the Sonic ones. But Sonic Generations wasn’t bad. It was meant to remember the legacy. Modern Sonic istn’t bad, he is fun to play with, I like all the adrinalin you get. The review just felt so forced. The first video of him I didn’t laugh once. Sorry, but I’m honest.

    This idiot didn’t play the 3DS version where Classic Sonic gets the Homing Attack. GO BACK AND HIDE IN YOUR HELL-HOLE, YOU JACKASS! YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE SENSIBLE GAME REVIEWS!

    …God, what is with it with you idiots nowadays? It’s just a fucking game, play it and get it over with.

    Holy. Shit.

    I thought I’m the only one thinking SEGA tried to polish “Retarded Sonic’s” image by (ab)using Classic Sonic. Also, going from 2D to 3D-to-2D-to-3D. GENIUS!

    That was truly awesome!

    the one thing I can agree on…was odd controls at times…when jumping but other than that…the game was and still is great…hey Sega did make an attempt at trying to fix Crisis City lol…its not the best…but 2006..that was a nightmare…I will admit. One thing they brought back in this was those auto running levels…I twitched a bit when I saw that. I was just glad you don’t die in this game vs. 2006 lol. That shit dove me nutz. Also I agree about the Police Box LMAO.

    Yahtzee always makes me laugh~ His Unleashed review was funnier though imo

  • Reply

    Whew. He’s only talking about the PS3 and 360 versions. Not the 3DS version. Right? Right? RIGHT?

  • Reply

    Meh. Not even that funny. I only really agree with the final boss (which was BULLshit) but everything else was just him either being pissy or just flaws about the game that depend on what kind of person you are. :/
    How’s that prediction working out for you Singerland?

    Quite a funny way to spend 5 minutes, quite mediocre as a review. Even the ones in here that don’t love the game should see that he has almost no real arguments. But i couldn’t stop laughing at farting sonic.

    That was practically positive for a Zero Punctuation review, and many of the criticisms where valid. Also funny as usual, so, good stuff. XD

  • Reply

    Meh, I chuckled here and there. It wasn’t too funny, but it’s nice to hear someone speak their mind the other way around sometimes. :3

    Did anybody notice the link that sends you straight to the video is broken? The later part seems right, but how did Retro become the main address?

  • Reply

    I’m pretty sure the review isn’t meant to be taken very seriously. It’s a clever review which points out the odd and quirky things in the game and turns them in to a negative, you lot need to lighten up, this is comedy.

    Excellent review, funny as hell.

    Retro or Retarded! A new game show for ALL the family!

    Like I Always Say Fuck Reviews and play the god damn game I feel like or not

    Zero Punctuation reviews aren’t meant to be (for the most part) serious. It’s all meant to be comical. It’s his shtick to hate almost every game he comes across. It’s actually funnier when he runs into a game he can’t help but like but still manage to nit pick for the sake of nit pick, like Batman Arkham Asylum.

    Eh, games shouldn’t be played just so you can get them over wiht, they’re meant to be enjoyable…

    What a jackass.

    Hmm, Slingerland grasping at straws to find someone who shares his hatred of all things made in the past 15 years and Sonic. Who pays attention to him anymore?

    I like the part where they were stealing Scott Bakula’s bathmat.

    Yahtzee still sticks to his style of making good games look bad, all while making me laugh at his ridiculous hyperbole. Talk about a genius who adamantly speaks his mind about games and makes a guy question what he really likes. The whole juxtaposition between the two Sonics came off as a bit superstitious though, as I don’t think that was the “hidden point” of the game. Although he makes hilarious –yet true– points about the game, I still humbly disagree with his overall opinion. But hey, at least I finally got to know his thoughts on Sonic Colors. XD

    TL;DR
    I loved Generations.
    I loved this review.
    2012!!!!

    I DISAGREE WITH HIM!!! I BETTER COME UP WITH A WAY TO MAKE HIM LOOK OBJECTIVELY WRONG AND UNFUNNY

    seriously if you have fun with a game don’t take negative reviews so seriously, just have fun and ignore the haters.Besides, the review was funny.

    I don’t know what’s funnier: the review or almost every single comment in response to this.

    It’s why he’s called Zero Punctuation.

    youmad.

    GeneHF: Calling that a review is kind of like calling MST3K a review show.

    • Reply

      Some of those movies ARE campy, but hilarious. The point is, it’s humor. Just sit back and laugh. I’m pretty sure Godzilla fans won’t get their panties in a knot because MST3K made fun of quite a handful of their movies, including the introduction of Jet Jaguar.

    I’m enjoying myself reading these comments. It’s funny after all these years, we still can’t simple just agree to disagree, eh? Human nature, I suppose.

    Anyway, funny video, made my day.

  • Reply

    Erm, exactly? It’s humor.

    Dude must secretly like Sonic. He obviously played 06, Unleashed, Colours and Generations. He even admits at enjoying Colours in both his twatter and Extra Punctuation. My assumption is he was a fan back in the day, still plays them just to see how it’s going, then gets paid to rip the shit out of it. I laugheed and agree with him on every point. Sonic Generations Modern Stages and some control issues with Retro Sonic prove one thing to me: You cannot polish a turd.

    that was awesome

    This guy is the biggest Sonic fan ive ever seen. i mean im not a sonic fan becouse i acctualy like sonic, and as everyone knows true sonic fans hate sonic, so this guys like a supper fan or something.

    Finally someone who has the same opinion as me!

    Haha Yahtzee made me laugh again!

  • Reply

    Another beauty by ol’ Yahtzee. I literally laughed the whole time; I was really hoping he’d do this one. His comments about Crisis City: Amazing. That’s pretty much what I was thinking the ENTIRE DEVELOPMENT CYCLE. I will always agree with everything this man says, because he’s right about FUCKING EVERYTHING. Also, lol at everyone who’s like “URGH HE’S A JACKASS I CAN’T BELIEVE HE’D HATE THIS GOD OF A GAME UUUUUUUUUUURGH”

  • Reply

    Why people take Yahtzee’s analysis seriously is still a mystery to me. There is always one or other believable detail in his analysis, but this is more a hint of spice to illustrate what is actually a comedy show. He doesn’t take himself seriously. I don’t know why, then, other people decided that they should do it.

    This review was clearly just biased against the new gameplay – which I was as well. Then I played Sonic Generations and have become quite the convert. As in, this game which is supposedly such a shit game sold me on the gameplay which us “classic fans” hate.
