    Naw, probably not. 🙂

    I’m intrigued by Sonic 4 but I hear the game is more like a tribute to the old games and is short in length.

    Those who have played it, is it worth 800msp?

    • I feel it is but its a very divisive game. I enjoyed it quite a bit and thought it was the best 2d Sonic game since the first Sonic Advance. Others feel its one of the worst 2D Sonic games so its hard to say which side of the line you’ll fall on. It definitely rehashes some visuals from past games but in a nice HD coat of paint.

  • Thanks, I think I will buy it then, this is the cheapest its gonna be for a long time so may as well take advantage.

    • Yeah, XBLA doesn’t really do any big “Steam” like sales. 33% is usually the most off you’ll find.

    I actually went back to your guys’ review to see if I could maybe reconsider, but… after playing the demo I just *cannot* get used to how the blue punkster handles. Hoping for the best in Ep. 2 ’cause I really want to enjoy these games, but not feeling it.
    Sorry, I tried!
