At first I was surprised I didn't see anyone talking about Sonic 4, but now that I played ... geez ... I just feel betrayed. They took the extra time, all the time they needed to make a simple game with all the tried and true formula and they fuck up the physics in this game.
If you're asking "How's the psychics is broken Ed?" Simple, when the best method for braking in high speed is to not push in any direction instead of pushing backwards (or as i'd like to call it, like IN THE OLD GAMES), you fucked up the formula and you fucked it up baaaaaaaaaaad. For a nostalgic comeback, one they took their sweet time they can't even do the gameplay like the old games, that just killed the game, I lost plenty of lives on this game because I simply didn't press in any direction because I knew that in the tried and true Sonic formula that wouldn't get me killed and guess what? IT DID! One simple thing they fuck up, fucked the whole game experience, they nailed it all down, stage design is good, boss fights are good, soundtrack is good, visuals are good. Goddammit man, just hand over the franchise to a team that knows what they're doing Sonic Team lost all their credibility, i'm done, i'm calling it quits on them. If positive reviews come out of Sonic Colors, i'm ignoring it like the plague.
Ok, I ranted long enough about this. Man what a major turn-off.
