Sonic 4 is the punishment of a hateful god on a population which has enraged him.

It is what Kratos would create to give to his worst enemies. It is the final puzzle in a Saw movie. Threats of playing this game are what Kim Jong Un uses to keep the people of North Korea in line, and those people don't even understand what a videogame is.

If you read the credits of the game backwards, Cthulhu will destroy the world... but only if you do so after beating the game.

This is a bad game. I'll enumerate.

1. Bad physics. Sonic loses all momentum immediately as soon as you release a directional key. Ducking into a roll decelerates instead instead of uncapping your max velocity.

2. Broken physics. Sonic clips through springs. He also won't ride moving platforms downward; he is in mid air as soon as the platform begins it's descent.

3. Inconsistent application of the rules. In the last zone Sonic can walk on giant gears to move them, but he falls off as soon as he revs on them. Sometimes the lock on system just won't lock on.

4. Art design. It's occasionally difficult to tell if something is a platform or just a decorative doodad in the foreground. It's kinda ugly, too; there isn't even any AA.

5. Level design. One level has pistons that slam upward into spikes. They have a longish cycle no indication that they're about to activate. If you see them, you have to slam to a stop and wait for them to activate before proceding. Another level sees Sonic speeding along in pitch darkness, carrying a torch that illuminates the ground three feet in front of him. I haven't even mentioned the puzzles. Why are there puzzles in a Sonic game?

Avoid avoid avoid.

It is if SEGA created some platformer and decided to put Sonic in it.

Pretty bad, actually. While an more-or-less-OK game, it looks more like a bad fangame than an official sonic game. Also, the special stages and some small parts of the main game are complete ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t. Playing as supersonic is nice, though. Got it in a bundle, probably not worth it otherwise, even if you're a hardcore sonic fan.

After buying Sonic Generations and loving it, I jumped at the chance to try Sonic 4. A 2d based game that trys to capture the spirit of the original Genesis games? What could possibly go wrong?

Turns out a lot of things. Whilst it's true that the games are 2D and that we play as Sonic, this doesn't feel like a Sonic game. The physics are unnatural in comparison to the originals or to Generations. It handles poorly and the implementation of the homing attack causes more problems than benefits created. The music is rather dull and very repetitive. It doesn't help that out of frustation I just alt tabbed out of the game and closed the game via my taskbar and that the music didn't stop playing despite the gaming having been closed. Map design is also sketchy. On one map in particular, I have just died three times in a row due to the necessity of using the homing attack on carefully placed opponents to pass a giant gap in which a fall will instantly kill you. This is all fine and dandy except for the bit of the end platform being far away from the final monster in which you dash in to.

Simply put, I'm not having any fun playing this and if this were a modern players first experience with any Sonic game then they are going to be left with a poor taste in their mouth.

TL;DR I would never pay full price, but for what I paid ($10 Humble Bundle for almost every Sonic game) I feel it was a fun and frustrating few hours spent. But this recommendation barely gets a thumbs up even at that price, which I will explain below.

First and foremost, the options and settings are a joke. The resolutions don't go above 1600x1200, and you have to manually change an option just to use a controller, otherwise it simply won't work. There is no way to remap what few buttons you need to play the game, which still would have been nice. In addition to that, this feels more like a remastered version of the first Sonic game, rather than it's own standalone sequel.

There are a few improvements however. They have included the targetting system which is a nice addition over the Genesis counterparts. I personally felt the graphics were quite nice as well. Also as in the original, the Casino levels are by far my favorite levels in almost any side-scroller.

However, this game gave me a frustration that I haven't felt since I was a child playing SNES/Genesis games. Sonic is nearly invincible as long as you keep a few rings handy. As in almost every Sonic game, they counter this by adding many one-hit kill traps and pitfalls that feel really cheap when you first come across them. In addition to this, you have to be completely still to do a dash, otherwise you'll jump like an ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ all over the place. Also, the final version of Eggman took me about 20 lives in trial-and-error before I was able to take him down. But overall it was satisfying to play and beat, and it felt frustrating just like the old-school games. However the Chaos Emerald levels are more luck than skill, and I won't be bothering to complete them.

All in all, it's worth a few bucks, but at full price, I'd stay away.

The first video game I ever owned was Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was five and horrible at it, yet could not be happier. Through practice and wonder I started a lifelong journey of gaming.

With that in mind, do not try to compare. Sonic 4 means well, and in fact has a fantastic soundtrack, but its design is slightly off even for a Sonic game. The purpose of Sonic is fast (thus the catchphrase), and this game tries to throw in other conventional platforming design that really runs down on your propulsion. You find yourself being stopped and jumping far more often than other Sonic games.

On top of all that, the bosses are absolutely horrible. None are interesting until late game, and for some reason to me the final boss was 10 times harder than all others. Even with great sound, they decided to make the music for bosses really abysmal and dull.

I enjoyed this game for what it was, and would even recommend it for free play, but it truly is slow, boring, and unsatisfying.

This game feels...derivative at best. It's essentially a fan-created flash game by someone who played Sonic on the Game Gear...once...and then suffered major brain damage and tried to recreate their experience.

I'm just glad I got this for cheap on a Humble bundle. It all just feels kinda wrong, and controlls really weird. It's essentially a mobile ported game to PC. I was really hoping for more from this, but sadly am dissapointed.

This was just a huge disappointment from Sonic 3. The levels are all re-hashed versions of previous Sonic games. Even the bosses are re-used from previous games. This does not feel like a new version of the game, it is more like a remastered compilation of prevous games.

The only innovation I saw was in the Labrynth zone where you can use your torch to light the explosives. The music was just very short loops that became annoying, especially at the end levels.

The only way you should buy/play this game is if it is on sale. I picked mine up at HumbleBundle so at least somebody is getting my money for a good cause.

Man, I wasn't expecting Sonic 4 to be this horrible. The graphics look like Sonic 3D Blast, the music is not that good, and the first two levels are obviously recreations of Green Hill and Casino Night (renamed Splash Hill and Casino Street...). The controls and physics are weird, letting go of the move stick in mid air just stops all of your momentum dead where you stand (or float I say), the spin dash is usually slower than just running, and Sonic's running animation just looks plain unnatural. I rage-quitted on Mad Gear act 1 because Sonic's slow acceleration made it impossible for me to outrun the crushing platforms near the end.

Honestly, I'm just glad I got this in the 25th Anniversary Humble Bundle instead of spending $10, so I'm not even mad because I also received the classics Sonic 1, 2, 3, and CD.

This is a Sonic game. The understood story is that Eggman is up to no good again, and it's up to you--Sonic--to save the day.

Gameplay
The game plays mostly like the other original Sonic the Hedgehog games: you jump, roll, attack enemies, collect rings, etc, but now you can use Sonic's more recent homing attack to chain attacks together and jump over wide gaps. If you enjoyed the original's gameplay, you'll like this.

Visuals
The graphics are strange. At first I was taken back by the strange blend between 2D and 3D visuals, but I soon adjusted. Some areas are very aesthetically pleasing, whereas others fall more on the ugly side. It is more in line with the original's visuals, but carefully avoids straying too far from the modern art style--this might turn off both retro and modern fans.

Audio
The music is not bad, but the originals' is better. The sound effects are like the originals', which is fine.

Stages
The stages are excellent. Some of the later stages in particular are very creative and are a blast to play. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the stages were designed.

Value
The game is relatively short. I finished all of the stages within 3 hours, which was slightly disappointing. The bosses aren't too varied, but the final boss is incredibly difficult (and a lot of fun). There are plenty of other things to do outside of the main game: time attacks, special stages, collecting achievements, etc. If you're the kind of person who runs through a game's main campaign without doing extras, this game might disappoint you.

Verdict
I like this game, despite it being short. I plan on going through and collecting all of the emeralds, doing the time attacks, and trying to get all of the achievements. I bet the main game plus the extras will stack up to about 5 hours of gameplay, which is pretty good.

At least this game tried, and that's all I can say on the plus side for this monstrosity, sadly. The physics are garbage, the graphics are ugly, animations are wonky, as well as the controls. Nothing went right. What the ♥♥♥♥ is a Sonic?

Remember that lightning fast game you played as a kid? Well, this isn't it.

This is more akin to a slow painful bowel movment during which you're forced to listen to terrible music.

Garbage, absoutly garbage. This game punishes you for moving fast, take a moment to think about that. It is frustrating, not fun, skip it.
