    This game insults the Sonic brand. Levels are designed in good nostalgic style but the controls of this game, at least on PC, make it frustrating to play. Add to that the poor support and guesswork required to make it actually run. If you really want a traditional sonic experience go get the classic collection or something. The updated graphics are not worth the headache.

    Sonic's movement lacks fluidity; his acceleration is pitiful, his reactions are slow and cumbersome. The game fails to deliver the basic fundamentals of a what makes a Sonic Platformer a Sonic Platformer.

    It has some nostalgia value, with classic zone themes and boss battles being revisited, but even here it falls short as the soundtrack doesn't come close to replicating the simple brilliance of its 16-bit predecessors.

    Not the successor I'd hoped for.

    To be incredibly honest, this has to be the worst game I have played in my life

    Pros:
    (None)

    Cons:
    Messy Controls
    Slow, irritating physics
    Repetitive Soundtrack
    Uninspired Levels

    If you are a hardcore sonic fan, i would suggest you avoid this game

    Although I do not normally side with gamers who prefer digital versions of games, in the case of episodic games, it's perfectly rational, especially when it's accompanied by a very logical price- priced at 7 euros, Sonic 4.1 does not disappoint. [March 2012]
