* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper:
** [[ExpositionFairy Omochao]] is back, and he's as annoying as ever. Thankfully, the main menu contains the option to turn him off.
** Unfortunately, the same can not be said of the rest of the cast in the final battle (non-3DS). It most certainly does not help that the final battle is also ThatOneBoss.
--> '''Voice #1:''' That looks like a homing shot!
--> '''Voice #2:''' Be careful, Sonic!
** What makes them even more annoying is that, the ''one'' hint you really need, namely "aim at the core and boost" gets drowned out by a dozen repetitions of "that looks like a homing shot".
** Equally useless is the final instruction, which if misinterpreted will be played over and over for eternity:
--> '''Tails:''' Sonic! Press L1 and R1 at the same time to combine your powers! [[spoiler: ("And hold them" would have been useful 20 minutes ago, Tails.)]]

** The entire game itself can qualify with fans claiming that its a good game despite its [[ExcusePlot obvious lack of a plot]], while others claim that the lack of one really drags it down. That said, in a rarity for Sonic fans, the general consensus is that the game itself is solid, with its only glaring flaws either being the plot (or lack therof) or its shortness.
** Speaking of its shortness, the amount of content in the game has become a point of contention in the years after its release, as the game only has 18 main stages evenly divided between the two gameplay styles, and they range from 4-7 minutes long your first time through. Some believe that the amount of content wasn't enough to justify the game's price considering the length of previous Sonic games (even ''Colors'' which wasn't that long itself), and that the game should have had more stages or more meaningful replay value. Others believe that the large amount of alternate paths in each level provides enough replay value on its own, and also point out that ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' was criticized for having the Werehog take about 2/3 of the game in total playtime. Many were hoping that there would be DownloadableContent that would add more well-loved stages to the game later on such as Ice Cap Zone and Egg Fleet, but were disappointed when it was revealed that the only DLC would be a Casino Night-based pinball minigame.

* SoOkayItsAverage: Tends to be the lowest opinion of the game with HypeBacklash setting in. It's still considered to be one of the best Sonic games compared to the rest of the series, but its relative lack of content and story holds it back from excellence.

Tends to be the lowest opinion of the game with HypeBacklash setting in. It's still considered to be one of the best Sonic games compared to the rest of the series, but its relative lack of meaningful content and story holds it back back. It's thought of less than a game with a mix of good and bad that makes it average and more of a very good game that could have been more than it was.
** The 3DS version gets this reaction
from excellence.most. The game is derided for its even greater lack of content (even compared to the console version) as well a wasted opportunity with not representing the handheld games save [[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries one]]. However, the game is still considered to be perfectly enjoyable with good level design (when not recycled from the originals), with a few even considering the 3DS version to be an underrated gem.



** A few people have been complaining that [[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sky Sanctuary]] [[FanDumb isn't yellow enough]].



** No Classic Amy or Knuckles, despite being prominent characters from before the ArtShift. There's no Modern Metal Sonic either, despite him being the only other villain besides Eggman to be prominent before and after the ArtShift.

to:

** No Classic Amy or Amy, Knuckles, or the Chaotix[[note]]Though to be fair, the Chaotix's [[VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix debut game]] is now considered non-canon while their "true" debut is considered to be ''Heroes''[[/note]] despite being prominent characters from before the ArtShift. There's no Modern Metal Sonic either, despite him being the only other villain besides Eggman to be prominent before and after the ArtShift.

* ItsShortSoItSucks: The game only contains 18 stages (14 in the 3DS version), they are evenly divided between the two gameplay styles, and all but two of them are only 3-4 minutes long even your first time. Not helping is that the game is filled with optional missions, but all of them are just shortened {{Remixed Level}}s. The large amount of alternate paths does help to ease this, however.

Added DiffLines:

** Just like in the Classic games, [[spoiler: Super Sonic]] is this. You get this power-up immediately after beating the final boss, and while the cost is very high (it fills the entire slot of powerups which can normally fit 4 or 5 on it's own), upon using it by [[spoiler: getting 50 rings,]] you become [[spoiler: completely invincible (except for pits), have double speed, and the Modern Sonic version can fly while using Boost.]] Skilled players can easily S Rank all stages using this powerup.

* MagnumOpus: What with it garnering universal acclaim, ''Generations'' is considered to be the best in the [=3D=] era.
