  • Summary: " Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 " is a fine addition to the Sonic franchise, returning the games to their 2D spiritual roots in style. Its enjoyable but remains a Sonic game, with all the flaws of the old Megadrive titles, the last of which is now 16 years old.

  • Conclusion: There are enough good moments in Sonic 4 to demonstrate that an update of the classic Sonic games has the potential to be great. But this is not that great game. Sonic fans hoping for a worthy tribute to the early days of the blue blur will have to keep waiting, and those who aren't familiar with...
  • Pros: Visuals faithfully re-create the look of the original Sonic games, The homing attack is a fun and effective addition to Sonic's repertoire, Some fun level design lets you put Sonic's speed to great use.
  • Cons: Poor boss fights range from dull and easy to dull and frustrating, Some bad level design brings things to a standstill, Overly ruthless about chaos emeralds, Encourages you to play one stage again and again to get extra lives.
