Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II Review

  • Summary: It’s hard to escape the trappings of convention, but Sonic 4: Episode 2 offers modest innovation for the series without overly relying on its past strength. The game keeps its own identity. I can ponder over whether the game manages to mimic its retro elders but this would ultimately be unhelpful.
  • Pros: Improved movement physics, Pleasant visual design
  • Cons: Forgettable soundtrack, Feels too short

  • Conclusion: 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 Episode 1 a tepid experience persist here:...
  • Pros: Entertaining cooperative gameplay with Tails, Fun "3D" bonus levels.
  • Cons: Tails isn't a distinct character, Boss battles are boring, Many levels lack a sense of speed.

  • Excerpt: Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I had a lot riding on it, since Sega hyped it up to be a potential revival of the franchise. It ended up being pretty divisive – you either loved or hated it.
  • Pros: Sonic and Tails demonstrate some new moves, Certain stages are a blast, Makes you want to revisit old Sonic games
  • Cons: The soundtrack had us hating our lives, Falling to your death because Tails got tired, The final Robotnik fight is straight-up painful

  • Conclusion: It’s sad really since Episode II is a really solid Sonic game, just one with frustrating boss fights, painfully bad music, and a total lack of originality, imagination or inspiration.

  • Summary: An exercise in apathy, neither solid nor liquid. Not exactly bad, but not very good either. Just a bit "meh," really. How we score: The Destructoid Reviews Guide

  • Conclusion: Despite some sumptuous graphics and addictive tunes, Sonic 4: Episode II lacks the engaging gameplay which made his previous outings so much fun. The inclusion of Xperia Play controls is half-hearted, too

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II – The PS3 Attitude Review

PS3 Attitude
29 May 2012
  • Conclusion: SEGA seems to have finally found a solid version of Sonic that fans can appreciate. While Sonic 4 still doesn’t quite capture the glory of his early days on the Genesis, it does manage to revitalize those aspects that made Sonic best.
