Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 - review

 

The purest Sonic game for ten years, Works on so many gameplay levels, like its predecessors, So much game to master, despite its diminutive size

Can be 'completed' in one evening, Physics are different, not necessarily worse, Visuals could have been even better

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1

 

Sonic 4 is an utter mess of a game, cobbled together in a manner that puts the entire franchise to shame. It feels sluggish, broken and lazy, but at least it only lasts a couple of hours! This is exactly the opposite of what we were hoping for, and not...

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 Review

 

That gripe aside, Sonic 4 is very much a return to form for the series. After so many years of watching poor Sonic put through the wringer time and again, it’s nice to finally see him back in two dimensions. Sonic 4 isn’t a perfect revival of the...

Gamertell Review: Sonic the Hedgehog 4, Episode 1

 

Gamers new to Sonic may try this out and wonder what all the fuss is about. I'm not sure this is for them, even though it's more enjoyable than the other recent Sonic incarnations we've seen. I can't tell younger gamers whether they should start here...

Fantastic platform gaming, great graphics, nostalgic fun doesn’t feel dated

Short, needlessly difficult sections kill momentum, some sections seem to force you through them

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 Review

 

Don't call it a comeback. Though the blue blur delivers more misses than hits, he churns out more releases than anyone but Mario and crew. Will this finally be the game that erases all the heartache, or another groaner that makes us question why we...

Prettified throwback levels, Surprise modernized moments, A trip down memory lane

Awkward physics, Cheap tricks, Not much bang for your buck

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 (PS3) Review

 

Sonic goes off on his own to explore new lands while Eggman follows in hot pursuit.

As in the Genesis games, Sonic is able to run at high speeds, jump or roll into enemies, and make use of his trusty spin dash to take down Eggman. Sonic 4 introduces the homing attack, a maneuver seen in the 3D games that lets Sonic home in to the...

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1

 

Visuals faithfully re-create the look of the original Sonic games, The homing attack is a fun and effective addition to Sonic's repertoire, Some fun level design lets you put Sonic's speed to great use.

Poor boss fights range from dull and easy to dull and frustrating, Some bad level design brings things to a standstill, Overly ruthless about chaos emeralds, Encourages you to play one stage again and again to get extra lives.

There are enough good moments in Sonic 4 to demonstrate that an update of the classic Sonic games has the potential to be great. But this is not that great game. Sonic fans hoping for a worthy tribute to the early days of the blue blur will have to...
