We’ve mentioned Sonic the Hedgehog a few times in passing on this site. To be honest, he’s a touchy subject. On the one hand, when a Sonic the Hedgehog game is good, it can be one of the best games you will ever play. On the other hand, when a Sonic the Hedgehog game is bad, it makes you wish you were playing E.T. on the Atari 2600 instead (for you young whipper-snappers that aren’t old enough to remember E.T. on the Atari, that’s a bad thing). Enter Sonic the Hedgehog 4, a return to the series’ roots.
Episode 1 of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 hits multiple platforms this October:
- XBLA: October 13, 1200 MSP ($15)
- PSN: October 12, $14.99 (9.99GBP, 12.99EUR)
- Wii: October 11, 1500 Wii Points
- iTunes: October 7
Since we don’t have a PS3, our only real option will be to grab the XBLA version. I’d feel dirty playing as Sonic on a Nintendo, anyway (but I’ll probably play Sonic Colors).
