I knew it was going to suck. I knew I was throwing money away. I knew I was giving money to a horrible developer so that they could go on making more horrible games, but I just couldn't resist. Nostalgia was too strong.
That's right, I picked up Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1. It's not a terrible game, or even a bad game at that, but it's so crummy and unpolished. The original Sonic games on the Genesis are, to me, the best platformers ever made. This one is between mediocre and decent. What happened to you Sega?
And you know what the worst thing is? I'm still going to buy Episode 2.
