Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II review | Thunderbolt

Cormac Murray, Thunderbolt writes:
As part of an attempt to rejuvenate a Sonic the Hedgehog franchise that had seen much decay over the years, Sega attempted a ‘successor’ to 1994’s Sonic 3 sixteen years later. By drip feeding the game episodically, they could use the feedback to find a solution that worked. Unfortunately Sonic 4: Episode I failed to jump-start the series, rehashing classic levels and lacking Sonic’s traditional nippiness. Yet the blue hedgehog still churned out solid performances in Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations, providing a mini-revival to build on. With the series witnessing much variation in quality since its Mega Drive days, making it fit for the current era is a long-standing question Sega has faced. Whether a twenty-year-old formula is even suitable when looking past the tint of nostalgia is certainly one of them. (PC, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2) 7/10
