Summary: Lo mas decepcionante de Sonic episodio 1 es la poca innovación que tiene en mi opinión. Creo que esta claro que es como una suma de sonic 1 y 2 (Escenarios, enemigos, jefes, ETC.) pero con algunos ligeros cambios. Después la verdad dejando de lado algunos problemas en sus físicas el juego es muy recomendable.
Summary: Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode is an amazing sequel with what they've done adding a Sonic in a colorful and vivid world, amazing fluid visuals, a upbeat Soundtrack, and amazing re-telling of Sonic's fight against Dr. Eggman. However despite that it still has its faults such as the fact that the game's length is a bit of a lowside and the lack of some key Sonic characters missing out.
Summary: This game takes a humongous amount of aspects and inspiration from the original trilogy, in fact to the point that it seems it was intentional in order to provide nostalgia factor for the players. Of course that’s not a bad thing at all, especially considering that the game added some of its own twists to all of the original goodies that it included.
Summary: This game insults the Sonic brand. Levels are designed in good nostalgic style but the controls of this game, at least on PC, make it frustrating to play. Add to that the poor support and guesswork required to make it actually run. If you really want a traditional sonic experience go get the classic collection or something. The updated graphics are not worth the headache.
Summary: This Sonic was a big surprise to me, and I ended up getting and it's worth! Despite the physical failure and soundtrack "annoying" is a great fun for gamers on duty. This proves that Sonic is heading in the right place!
Summary: Kind of nostalgic. Graphics much improved over Sega Genesis, however does not scale to high resolutions like 2560x1600 well. POV stays the same no matter what resolution. That is disappointing. Everything looks nice except Sonic and the mobs which are blocky. Set up controller by mapping it to keyboard game-mode seems to be working ok. Has support for xbox controller or keyboard mapping. Can't alt-tab back to full-screen game when minimized.
Summary: It's the sequel we've all been waiting for. SEGA, kudos to you. You have done well. Basically, if you liked Sonic 1, 2 and 3, then get this game. If you love platformers, get this game. All in all, well worth the 10$ price tag.
Summary: As an old-skool Sonic fan, I was elated to find that Sonic Team claimed to be returning to Sonic's roots. Once I downloaded the demo and then played the full version at a friend's house however, I saw otherwise. As many people have mentioned, Sonic lacks inertia, or momentum. This means Sonic does not move as quickly or as smoothly as in his Genesis days. It feels more like you're controlling a plastic toy shaped like Sonic the Hedgehog.
Summary: I have been dying for this game for a long time... I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. However... it sucks. It just sucks. I played the original Sonic 1, 2, and 3. I played Sonic and Knuckles. They were fun, and part of it was the freaking controls and sense of speed. Now? Not so much. Those reviews that are defending so harshly... I literally can't imagine why. At best it is an average experience. Most of the time? It is almost unplayable and boring. Oh well.
