Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 Review

G4
29 October 2010
  • Summary: 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 keep coming back like abused hedgehog wives? Check our verdict on the original series sequel 16 years in the making.
  • Pros: Prettified throwback levels, Surprise modernized moments, A trip down memory lane
  • Cons: Awkward physics, Cheap tricks, Not much bang for your buck

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 Falls Short

  • Conclusion: I really wanted to like Sonic 4 Episode 1 . As a Sega fanboy I feel guilty for not liking this game more. To have waited for this long though... we probably should have gotten a little more polish and originality for the price tag.

Sonic The Hedgehog 4:Episode 1 Review (PS3, PSN)

  • Excerpt: The classic flattened Sonic is back Though it’s harsh that every Sonic game released nowadays it’s constantly regarded as a new nail on the critters’ coffin, it’s not so much scepticism as realism. The flairs of nostalgia we all have for him is consistently being coated with terrible production qualities that can put low budget titles to shame.
  • Pros: Enjoyable speed and platforming through most parts, Crisp visuals and catchy soundtrack
  • Cons: Frustrating ‘Puzzle’ hinder platforming, Boss fight borrow way too heavily from previous games, Incredibly easy and short

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 : Episode I

JeuxVideo.fr
17 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Depuis plusieurs années, la carrière de Sonic est passée par des chemins plutôt chaotiques, s'éloignant doucement de la gloire d'antan. Des jeux en 3D à la maniabilité parfois plus que discutable, des spin-off bas de gamme indignes du hérisson bleu, bref, une lente descente aux Enfers... Mais heureusement, ce Sonic the Hedgehog 4 effectue enfin le retour aux sources tant demandé par les fans. Salvateur ?

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: Le titre réussit donc son pari, mais il va un peu trop loin dans le côté de la nostalgie en se contentant simplement de reprendre une recette à succès. Nous aurions été en droit de nous attendre à un contenu plus étoffé ou bien encore à quelques nouveautés au niveau du gameplay.
  • Pros: Retour aux sources, Level design, Nostalgie
  • Cons: Durée de vie, Un seul mode de jeu
