I REFUSE TO BUY THIS GAME BECAUSE IT HAS NEW SONIC AND NOT THE OLD SONIC WITH BLACK EYES AND THE GRAPHICS ARE NOT LIKE SONIC 1 AND THE STORY IS NOT LIKE SONIC 1 I FUCKING HATE THIS GAME WHAT THE FUCK SEGA WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU STILL MAKING SONIC GAMES I'M BUYING SONIC 1 INSTEAD OF SONIC 4 TO PROTEST IT THIS GAME SUCKS ITS THE WORST GAME EVER MADE WAAAAAA!!!!!!!!11111111!!!!!11!
Actually yes, I do plan on buying the game when I earn more money. I just spent half of it on Dead Rising 2 and a new guitar cable. I have played the demo. The physics are a bit screwy, but they said they will try to improve it with the other episodes.
I found out this was on the Wiiware so no wonder Gamefly didn't have it lol. I would like to get it and it costs 1500 points to download and I only have 300 points so I need to spend 20 bucks to have enough. It looks old school I want to get it.
I have been hearing bad reviews about it and I saw videos of it on youtube and it looked like they basically took levels from the old Sonic games and changed them. It looked like a rip off to me because they couldn't be original? Make up your own ideas than copying. I dunno if I was will get it but I have to think if it would be worth 1500 to download and just to try it. It is worth 20 bucks to spend? That's how much I need for enough points to download.
I'll put it this way. There are a few unique gimmicks in each level. But each level is a stylistic cutpaste of older Sonic levels. Think about how Emerald Hill Zone and Angel Island Zone differed from the original Green Hill Zone. There are many differences stylistically, even if they are similar thematically. Splash Hill Zone combines elements of all three without offering much that is new.
If the nostalgia factor sounds appealing, go for it. I was disappointed by the lack of creativity.
