Probable Failure: Sonic 4 Review

Sebastian at Probable Failure writes, "Sonic the Hedgehog has been a facet of my gaming life ever since I first played sonic as a wee lil’ lad. Until now, Sega has gone through a decade long run of throwing their own feces all over Sonic (The proverbial “shit hit the fan” didn’t quite make the mental image I was going for). For me, the game that showed Sega turning around was actually Sonic Unleashed for the Wii, the Sonic day-time levels of course. Sega actually looked like it was working hard and taking some effort in restoring Sonic’s name. Their attempts can be clearly seen (key word: “attempts”) in Sonic the Hedgehog 4, the latest entry into the hedgehog’s library. They do this by bringing the original Sonic players back to the 2D world Sonic is most loved for. But does this return to the 2D world actually fix anything?"

Sure there are stuff I wish they didn't mess with like the uncurling, slower speed in ball mode than running mode and physics.

But in general the gameplay was still awesome, just needed to get adjusted to the new game. And I played many many hours on it already, surely getting my 15 dollars worth.

Getting all the achievements where fun and difficult but in the end it was a great sonic game.
