Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II Review

 

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II is a solid though unremarkable continuation of the long-running formula.

Entertaining cooperative gameplay with Tails ; Fun "3D" bonus levels

Tails isn't a distinct character ; Boss battles are boring ; Many levels lack a sense of speed

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 Review

 

It's only been a few months since Sonic Generations proved that SEGA were still capable of producing a decent Sonic game, something the world once thought impossible. Previous to that Sonic 4: Episode I certainly wasn't bad but had a few issues – now...

The race against Metal Sonic. See, even the best bit is ripped off from another Sonic game. They even use the same music!

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II Review

 

The physics are fixed, but the magic's still missing.

When it was first announced to be in development back in 2009, the promise of SEGA's "Project Needlemouse" seemed incredible – it's no wonder fans of the Sonic franchise got their hopes up so high. Episode I then came along and, for many, failed to...

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II Review: Blue Renewed

 

Like night and day, Episode II is a better game than its predecessor, but it's not all bright.

It wasn't too long ago thatSega gave us Sonic theHedgehog 4 Episode I, a new 2DSonic game that aped the original Genesis games. It wasn't amazing, butwasn't exactly the grand betrayal many made it out to be, either.Nevertheless, it was defecated on by...

Laura takes Sonic's latest journey for a ride. Can it fix the issues with the first game? Find out inside.

Great final boss battle ; Awesome new skills

Frustratingly difficult in places ; Not much of an improvement on 4.1 ; Hefty price tag

He's blue, he's spiky, he's classic Sonic straight from the Mega Drive. Expect running, rolling, bouncing.....

While I wasn’t entirely sold on first Sonic the Hedgehog download, when it turned up at the end of 2010, I did appreciate the intent, and the potential. It wanted to be faithful to the original games, and it was. But, it wasn’t an enjoyable enough game...

A good follow-up doesn't just add new content--it improves on the original. In that critical sense, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 disappoints. While the addition of cooperative play is a big step in the right direction, the core elements that made...

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II

 

Sonic 4: Episode II is worse than its predecessor in almost every respect.

Metal Sonic stages are a decent unlockable ; Occasional moments of speedy brilliance

Too many niggling annoyances ; Awful music

What's most galling about the whole exercise is that you find yourself wanting nothing more than a graphically-enhanced version of the Mega Drive originals. It says much about how far this former trailblazer has fallen that we hope for nothing more...
