Few video game characters have had a journey as turbulent as The Blue Blurs has been. Over the past 25 years there have been good times and bad ones, and very bad ones.

2011's Sonic Generations was a testament to that. Although it contained many 3D segments it was largely a side-scrolling affair played at about 200mph.
