  • Excerpt: Sonic the Hedgehog is one of those franchises I enjoy playing. I remember playing Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 at E3 one year recently. I was very impressed with it. I have finally gotten around to purchasing it, and playing it. So my final step is to review it. This is a fantastic re-imagining of the original Sonic the Hedgehog. Sega also put some twists into Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 that can trip up old school gamers.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 Review

  • Conclusion: That gripe aside, Sonic 4 is very much a return to form for the series. After so many years of watching poor Sonic put through the wringer time and again, it’s nice to finally see him back in two dimensions. Sonic 4 isn’t a perfect revival of the series’ old-school heritage, and not every gameplay element works perfectly—rolling a giant Indiana Jones-style boulder down a track and having to use pillar switches to solve minimal puzzles come to mind—but there’s enough...

  • Excerpt: Sonic’s decline over the past ten years is often attributed to an unhealthy preoccupation with secondary characters and lack of focus on speed. The solution, as with most declining franchises, is often assumed to be a return to Sonic’s Mega Drive roots. It’s a fair assertion, and one that is accurate for the most part. But Sonic Team’s slow strangulation of their mascot isn’t so much to do with concept as execution.

  • Conclusion: Sonic the Hedgehog 4: episode 1 shows signs that Sonic could indeed be on his way back to the top. In order to keep this pace however, episode 2 needs to be cheaper and have more original ideas in it. Let's hope this series continues to accelerate without running into any speed-bumps.

  • Excerpt: The year was 1994, Mariah Carey had the number one hit single in ‘Without You’, ‘The Lion King’ left movie-goers amazed, Tonya Harding was caught out clubbing (literally) and Sonic fans enjoyed two of the blue blur's finest adventures in Sonic The Hedgehog 3 and its expansion/sequel Sonic & Knuckles.

  • Excerpt: It's never to late to make a proper sequel to Sonic The Hedgehog 3, at least, that's what Sega says. The hedgehog's latest outing is an episodic one, and Sega gave us a short glimpse into what they have in store for the zippy little rodent with Sonic 4.
