This review is from: Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode 2 [Download] (Software Download)
It has been 20 years since Sonic The Hedgehog has been with a loveable sidekick, and that is definitely the joy of the simple and adorable Tails. Since his debut in Sonic The Hedgehog 20 on the old Sega Genesis back in 1992, he has been just as much a joy to watch. But it has been awhile since Sonic The Hedgehog has shown a drive from his classic 2-D Genesis days. Gamers have seen that last year with Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 1. That game was more like a throwback to the original Sonic The Hedgehog, but it didn't drive as much in gameplay as the older games showed from the 90's. Now that Sega has decided to give it another go again, they have a lot more to offer overall with the new Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2. But is it worth the money in challenge. For die-hard gamers it is a yes, and for what made Sonic so popular in the first place for new ones, that could be a no.
Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2, for download is actually a step back into the old direction that many gamers have loved about Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and 3 very well from the classic Sega Genesis days. The gameplay handles better as Sonic & Tails team up again to fight against Dr. Robotnik, and his plot to take over the universe, and stop Sonic at all costs. The graphics stand well just like Sonic 4: Episode did, but it has a bit more in the gameplay that is nostalgic, from the levels and bosses, all the way to the special stages for those chaos emeralds. The stages take it up a notch, while paying homage to Sonic 2 in its half-pipe speed stages. But the control handles better in the game, as you try and defeat menacing bosses, including the return of the vulgar Metal Sonic from Sonic CD, and a nasty boss fight with Dr. Robotnik in the Death Egg Zone, where a brawl awaits beyond control.
All in all, this is what the first Sonic The Hedgehog 4 should've been made in the first place. Overall, there was much more that gamers have awaited, but should've been made sooner to continue celebrating Sonic's 20th anniversary. But it was made up for Tails celebration instead. If you have download Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, and was dissapointed by it, than you'll definitely find the challenge here.
Fun & Enjoyment: B 1/2+
