Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode II reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
After I played Episode I I think: "Sure this is just as bad," but I was wrong Sonic 4 Episode II eliminates as much as possible the mistakes that I made the Sonic Team with the first installment, as 3D models with plastic appearance or scaling by the stop The physics are still the same as in Episode I, but here we have (as in Sonic 2) to Tails, that we can fly or, something I liked this delivery, make us a wheel together to get a speed devilish The gameplay is not bad at all, It is not like a Sonic of Megadrive but it feels like one, despite having the skills of these last years as the Homing attack. The difficulty exists only in the bosses, because I have spent several levels with more than 80 rings and the final game with more than 50 lives. The bosses are quite original although they are not very difficult, but give you enough rings at the beginning (to transform into Super Sonic) and makes it quite easy. Also, there is a boss who is an exact copy of the battle against Sonic Metal in Sonic CD, which is to run against in a race dodging their attacks, although a lot easier In the levels there is a little variety as happened in the classic games , starting with a castle destroyed by the mountain and the vegetation, passing through a snowy amusement park until reaching the space (as happened in Sonic 2). Although They are pretty easy there is a good variety of enemies and places to explore, to find all the red coins. The special levels are practically identical to Sonic 2, so I won't say anything about it. Something that has bothered many people (and I understand) is that at the end of an act gives you the option to continue playing, and if you do not give, return to the map; As it did not happen in the classics, but if there is an achievement of passing the whole game without resting. The graphic section is much better than the Episode I, full of color, without that plastic touch that was leftover, but in this have managed to do a good job mixing 3D models with 2D drawings The music, honestly, could have been better. This game uses a chiptune music, simulating the old Yamaha with those 16-bit sounds, although sometimes irritate, since something important of this type of games (and especially in the 2D Sonics) is the music The game of If not very long (2-3 hours) , but if you try to get the 7 emeralds and try to complete it at 100% you can add another pair of hours, thing that is impossible because if you do not have a friend to play multiplayer you can not get these achievements, because there is almost nobody in the online despite all of you Some bugs and failures like to continue walking through the walls in some places or give you the option to continue playing after completing an act, although they are eclipsed due to its pros In short accounts, this if the real Sonic 4, if you played Episode I and you have Dec Epcionado, this will not, although if you are not a fan of modern Sonic or do not like its gameplay, go to play Sonic Mania.
