* 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 prevents it from being excellent on its own.

* 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.

* ItsShortSoItSucks: The main campaign has been criticized for this. 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 To be fair, 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.

** 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 flaw being the plot (or lack therof).

** 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.

** 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.

*** Game Informer drew in even more hate when the reviewer responded to people complaining about said review by insulting them in the letters section.

** The battle against the Biolizard in the 3DS version. Some enjoy the battle being far less annoying than [[ThatOneBoss its original appearance]] and like the easier-to-hear lyrics in the background music, while others dislike the loss of the dark atmosphere, the fact that Sonic, not Shadow, is fighting the Biolizard, and the lowered difficulty.
** The decision to represent ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' with a level and a boss fight in this game. Some fans would prefer that Sega call complete CanonDiscontinuity on ''Sonic 06'' and pretend it never existed, and that it has no place in a game celebrating Sonic's history. They often also add that, because the plot of ''Sonic 06'' ends by [[CosmicRetcon erasing itself from existence]], referencing its events creates a ContinuitySnarl. Others argue that despite the poor reception of ''06'', it is still nonetheless part of the series and that its representation in this game allows some of its better elements to finally shine through. The fact that Crisis City turned out to be a BestLevelEver in ''Generations'' has greatly helped the latter case.

* ItsEasySoItSucks: The boss battles against the Death Egg Robot and Big Arms received considerable amounts of flak for being greatly toned down from their original versions in order to provide an appropriate challenge for the first boss. The Biolizard faced similar criticism for reducing the difficulty its fight.

** The Biolizard battle in the 3DS version received plenty of fan complaints for its changes from to the original, such as the lighting being way brighter, Sonic fighting the boss instead of Shadow, the reduced difficulty (though some didn't mind, compared to [[ThatOneBoss the original]]), and the lighter, more intelligible remix of "Supporting Me."

** The decision to represent ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' with a level and a boss fight in this game, given that game's status as the ParvumOpus of the series at the time.
