Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 Review (PlanetXbox360)

After 16 years of waiting for a new adventure in the original Sonic series (and putting up with all the dreck in-between – we still haven’t recovered from Sonic Unleashed), Sega’s Hedgehog has finally returned to the ground he was meant to cover. Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 may not be the full adventure that we were expecting, but it’s a great sampler for the adventure that’s yet to come, and a reminder that sometimes, in order to be great, you have to stick with what works. The plot really doesn’t matter here.

And we know that the game is sh*t.

I got this yesterday. The physics of Sonics movement are a little hard to adjust to at first. He doesnt seem as fast as before. But overall the game is a lot of fun once you get used to the new Sonic.

DaBadMan3291d ago

Agreed. At first I was like WTF he seems so slow, but it didn't take long before I was off and rolling.

It put a big ol' smile on my face seeing the big blue blur back in action.

Some people may hate the $15 asking price, I feel that its worth it. Quick tip for those who hate the original music for the game, use your own (yes it supports custom soundtracks).

I replaced it with my own best of Sonic compilation that featured music from 1,2,CD, and Adventure 1 & 2 . It makes the game a lot more enjoyable!

Shadow Flare3291d ago

Thank you very much. I hate the music in this game because the old sonics had amazing soundtracks and sonic 4's is awful. So I'll be replacing the music. Cheers

n to the b3291d ago

tried the demo and agree about the music being < great (although I do like the intentional synth).

didn't dig the demo very much overall.

Kakihara3291d ago

I like look of it and the music but the controls are far far too sluggish for a Sonic game. At first I thought maybe my nostalgia for the old games was clouding my judgement but then I let my 8 year old niece (who loves all the Sonic games after playing them on my PS3 in the collection released a while ago) play the demo of this one and before she even finished the level she was asking if I could put Sonic 2 back on.
