Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 was considered a letdown by many longtime fans of the series, mostly due to the fact that its physics were not similar enough to the original Genesis titles. Part of the benefit of an episodic series is that developers can listen to concerns such as this and address them in future updates, something quite clearly evidenced in Episode 2 .

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • 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. After a couple years of uncertainty as to whether Sega would keep the episodic format or not, the publisher delivers Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, which sees the return of Miles “Tails” Prower as our helpful sidekick.
  • 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

  • Summary: On the surface, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II gives you pretty much everything you'd want in a followup, and a lot more than you've probably come to expect. New modes, a new character, cooperative play, revamped graphics, and plenty of new levels to run through build on the original game. What they don't do, though, is fix the core issues that made Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I a rather lackluster experience.
  • 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

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2

  • 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. I don’t want Sonic to die, but he needs a developer that doesn’t find some new and amazing way to screw up every game they make.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II Review (PSN/XBLA)

TheSixthAxis

  • Excerpt: For anyone who’s played the Sonic games of old, there’s a faint feeling of dread when a new Sonic title is released.
  • Pros: Fantastic soundtrack., Wonderful graphics and level design., Tag Actions work well., Episode Metal for those with Episode I.
  • Cons: Homing Attack is worse than useless., Sonic doesn’t feel right., Some poor boss fights., Perhaps a little too short.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode 2

Playstation Only
2 September 2013
  • Summary: In het 8-bit en 16-bit tijdperk vierde het platform-genre zijn hoogtijdagen. Zowat elke game was in die tijd wel een platformer. Na deze tijd moest echter elke game opeens in 3D, omdat consoles grafisch met sprongen vooruit gingen. Voor een aantal franchises was de overstap van 2D naar 3D echter niet zonder problemen.
  • Pros: Sonic voelt aan als vanouds, Multiplayer is leuk..., Grafisch kleurrijk
  • Cons: Meer een remix dan een deel 4, ... maar wel erg makkelijk, Weinig vernieuwingen

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II

  • Summary: Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Epizoda 2 má pěknou moderní grafiku, navíc je i v kooperaci celkem zábavný, ale nemůžeme si nevšimnout řady chyb, kterých se vývojáři dopustili. Level design je až na výjimky nezajímavý, nepřináší moc nového a hlavně zabraňuje Sonicovi, aby rozkmital nohy a ukázal svoji rychlost. Do toho si připočtěte nudné souboje s bossy nebo špatnou umělou inteligenci Tails, a zhruba víte, jak se druhá epizoda hraje.

Sonic The Hedgehog 4 : Episode II

  • Conclusion: Cette seconde partie (et la dernière ?) de Sonic the Hedgehog 4 offre la plupart des points forts d'un épisode classique, sans apporter quelque chose de plus à la formule. Assez court en plus de ça, à moins de jouer du scoring et de la course aux émeraudes, le titre pêche surtout par son prix (entre 13 et 16€ selon le format). Les fans peuvent clairement attendre une petite promotion avant de craquer.
