The game came out a few days ago, but I haven't seen a thread on it yet.

What do you all think about Sonic 4?

I feel very mixed about it. Its how much they recycled almost everything from all the other retro Sonic games from levels to the boss fights. Although I'm highly disappointed with Robotnik's theme. It doesn't sound intimidating at all.

I give it a 7.5/10.

I haz it.
It's not bad.
At least retro is way better than the crap Sega's been spewing out for the last decade.

I got the trial version and was quite pleased with it compared to the other more recent sonic games, haven't had that much fun playing sonic since the dreamcast days...

What they need to do is make a sonic game that's like the day time levels in Sonic unleashed which were a lot of fun and just not add extra crap to it that makes it suck.

I enjoyed the first stage. I can't wait to see more! The music was good and I loved the layout. Reminded me of the older games.

Being a massive Sonic fan, I want it very much... but how many stages does "episode 1" have? I may well just wait for the rest and enjoy the entire thing as a single entity.

If I remember correctly, the review said 4 stages with 3 acts to each stage.

Eh, works for me. I'll buy it after Youma, then. No need to rush these things.

Well, unless it's the original Sonic Rush. Then yeah, rushing is all good.

Here's my thoughts. I found the game to be... clunky. The way Sonic moves and jumps just doesn't feel right to me at all. I expected some forward momentum and floaty movement as Sonic moved, and of course some speed which I got none of that.

Even my friend, who loves Sonic, thinks the game is horrible. And this is the rodent that spawned bat poop insane fans who want to do fan movies to bring him to his former glory. Is Sega deliberately sucking to anger their fans knowing they'd pay for this?

Long story short, I don't like it.

Oh, and there's a contest to get Sonic stuck in the most impossible locations and the reward? 15 US Dollars, basically a refund.

I'm telling you it's a real game! I've played it. Don't try to make me question my perception of reality!

Jeff, back me up here. It's real, right? RIGHT!? :eek:

I know it's real. I saw it when I was a hatchling!

Robotnik needs a game thats not the potatoes and greens. He needs a game that is the Meat of the Meal.

Dimps handled the daytime levels in Unleashed. They also made the Rush series. And Sonic 4.

Dr.Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine was just the American version of Puyo Puyo. They changed some of the character portraits so the "Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog" crowd would pick it up. If they didn't give it a Sonic makeover, it would have probably sold less than Columns.

Its very classic Sonic...Being that I've never been a Sonic fan, I played the demo and realized that Sonic still just really isn't for me...
