Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 2 Review

 

Sadly, it's reached this point.

Presentation is pretty; Speed is still there

until puzzles slow things down; Bosses are meh; Tails needs a better plane; Light package for the price

With 13 levels, 7 bonus round incarnations, and 5 boss fights, Sonic 4 Episode 2 can be easily played through in a single sitting,and doesn't take much longer if you're really looking for completion. It doesn't so much give that feeling of nostalgia,...

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

 

When we last saw Sonic in 2D action (outside of Sonic Generations, which is still one of our favorite Hedgehog experiences to date), it was in Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1, Sega's attempt to reconnect with the “classic” fans of the series with...

At least Sega managed to get the graphic side of the package working better than the first. Along with great stage design, Dimps and Sonic Team managed to recreate the backgrounds in full 3D, so you can actually feel like you’re moving through terrain,...

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

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II Review

 

The Sonic franchise edges closer to its roots, though it's not quite there yet.

I still hope to see an Episode III in the future; I just hope Sonic Team can take this criticism to heart and figure out the tweaks they need to make so we can truly love a Sonic game again

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

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...

The meaning of Sonic is 42.

Expert review by:

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II

 

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

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

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...
