Was horribly disappointed by the gane.

As was I, but like I said, I can only hope Episode 2 takes all these things into consideration and fixes the physics problems.

The game breaking thing is the physics.

Disappointing that Sega apparently can never get this right. =/

I find it funny how this game gets tons of positive reviews but in the few that are negative it has everyone saying how it was disappointing. Weird.

I hardly consider a 6 a "positive" review. 6's barely make the cut in my eyes, which is why I scored it as such. Sonic 4 had a lot of good parts, but was sloppily executed.

Dimps missed the mark big time and I made sure to say as much.

Really, the number is arbitrary. The meat of the review is in the words.

Still, I would consider a 6 a pretty mediocre score and in no way being "positive."

Wikipedia says it's been receiving "mixed to positive" reviews. I would consider this falls in the "mixed" category.

Obviously, when people say it's "disappointing," those are the people that love Sonic games. The reviewers that scored this well are overlooking the technical problems of the game. Big time.
