MediaKick: "There’s no easy way to say it, Sonic 4: Episode I was an absolute travesty. It didn’t have the same feel as the Mega Drive classics, despite being billed as the true successor. As a consequence, many fans of the franchise seeking a return to form were left disappointed until the recent celebration of Sonic’s 20th birthday in the form of Sonic Generations. The balloons have since been popped and the cake has long been eaten. Now we get into the uncertain aftermath with Sonic 4: Episode II, which promises not only to fix the issues surrounding Episode I, but also includes the return of Tails and Metal Sonic. Is this episodic about to take an epic turn, or are we in for another bit of disappointment?"
