And this is Sonic 4's problem in a nutshell - the game attempts to play on your nostalgic side, declaring 'SEGAAAAA!' at the start and bombarding you with old enemies, themes and boss battles, but this is all simply to mask the fact that there really is no fun to be found here whatsoever. Some gamers will enjoy Sonic 4 simply because it has Sonic in it, but take the blue rodent out and they'd be singing a very different tune indeed.
