Sonic the Hedgehog 4 doesn't do very much that's new. Instead, it takes a step back to a time when Sonic was awesome. I would like to have been able to bring a friend along to play as Tails and experience the old Sonic levels in a new way -- in co-op. Otherwise, there's really little to complain about. Sonic 4 is short, but sweet and well worth downloading.

The platforming is undeniably good fun, marrying old school platforming with some interesting new mechanics. Despite its shortcomings, there's a lot of fun to be had here, and its flaws can be easily overlooked. Sonic fans will likely be blind to these blemishes anyway, it's simply that charming. Sonic Team just need to make sure the blue Hedgehog's shoes are fastened a little tighter for Episode 2.

Even with the franchise’s speed reduced, and physics that are all but non-existent, there’s still a mildly entertaining platformer to be found within. Those who are new to the Sonic series, or are just looking for a game to shoot through in under 2 hours will find a good bit of fun here. However, those who have played past iterations of Sonic, preferably the Genesis classics, should proceed with caution, as many of the things that made Sonic great are absent in this latest outing, not to mention the $15 price tag is somewhat steep for a game served up across several episodes.
