Personally, the only thing I ejoyed about Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 was the first stage, Splash Hill Zone, as it was the truest to original form level the entire game offered. The game's real problem was more about Sonic's control physics and the real out of place way he could stand sideways without falling (haters gonna hate?).
SEGA promises to remedy all said issues that plagued the original game in its inevitable Episode 2 release of Sonic 4. And though they haven't released any screenshots to the game officially, that hasn't stopped Microsoft's Xbox Live page for the game from doing it for them. Ooops.
But I must admit that, while the game doesn't make me reminisce about the good ol' days of Tails constantly dying for my advantage, it does however strengthen my faith that SEGA has sorta done what it's been saying nowadays, what with Sonic Generations actually tugging at my heart strings and making me feel like a nostalgic 7 year old again.
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 is due for release sometime in 2012 for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Xbox Live and PSN.
