Соник вернулся в виде двухчасовой нарезки из предыдущих частей сериала. Сам факт возвращения обнадеживает, но от игры с названием Sonic the Hedgehog 4 ждешь много большего.
Размноженное на «ксероксе» старье, грубая подделка под «олдскул», которая и фанатам-то вряд ли будет интересна.
This faithful but inconsistent throwback to the earliest Sonic games mingles high-speed thrills with a few too many frustrations.
It may not be the be all end all Sonic game that professed enthusiasts like myself have been waiting 15 years for, but Sonic 4 is a fun, frenetic download for fans and newcomers alike.
Altogether I feel like it's a great throwback to old Sonic games, but at the same time I wish it was a little more refined and had removed some of the annoyances I had with the previous 2D Sonic games.
It's deserving of your time and your money despite its length. But more importantly, it's deserving of the name 'Sonic The Hedgehog 4'. That was always going to be this game's biggest challenge, but it's succeeded with aplomb.

The fact is, Sonic 4's first episode is so much fun that it makes you forget about the world and think of nothing but the game. It encapsulates the pure thrill of gaming that many contemporary titles seem to comatosely forget.
