Sonic fan does a 20 minute YouTube rant about Sonic 4 physics

Here is a 26 year old Sonic fan, AGwolf2097, who was so pissed off with the physics in Sonic 4, that he decided to go and make a 20 minute YouTube video rant. The video comes in a epic 2 part Saga. YouTube can’t contain it in one video.

I know our forum members aren’t too happy about the physics, there are issues, but I want to know what you guys think of this guy’s point of view? Agree or disagree?

    I don't see how I can agree with a 20-minute rant on a game that takes 2 hours and half to complete.

    The physics aren't even broken. They're good, just not the same.

    I would say this guy is overreacting. So maybe it doesn't play 100% like the Genesis titles but that's no reason to call the game garbage.

  3. Is this the guy who said anybody who enjoyed the game is an idiot? Yeah, he's the idiot. Needs to stop making YouTube rants and enjoy life.

    I understand some of your concerns, and Sonic Team should be grateful for critiques, because they will be able to keep working better and better!

    especially since Yuji Naka is not involved with actual development of Sonic series anymore, however…

    from an art and design point of view, not all the time…everything should look like the real world…I mean some times it's better to let go of some stuff,

    and it some case before anything else the "cool" factor comes first, which means if it looks cool…just let it go!

    So, I hope people support Sonic 4, if they don't want to see crappy Sonic games like Sonic The Hedgehog PS3 or Shadow The Hedgehog!

    , this is a new project…which is going to continue, keeping better and better via updates…and extra content, Sonic has just return…

    takes some times until regain it's power and recovers, we must give it enough attention!

    At the end of the day, also there are some times that design and core concept/theory is meant to be like this,

    SEGA fella are incredible programmers and game designers, before many other companies,…it has been nomuerous times

    that they came up with some technology behind many others.

    We shouldn't expect them to be like the day they were a console manufactor,

    but we can compare them with konami, Namco, Capcom and Square.

    I like Sonic 4's visuals and musics, so…I like to have it on my iPod too,

    the blue hero is just getting warm, we should not let it escape this time easily!,

    so my friend…please don't make your life hard, take it a bit easier, I welcome

    your comments, as much as I welcome Sonic 4, all together, hope for the best to come…

    Sonic 4 is way better than many crap out there….

    And oh, by the way!

    Sonic Colors looks to be finally a polished 3d Sonic game!

    Give it a try guys…(The Wii version)

    Best Regards, Ali M.N

    I agree wholeheartedly with everything that he said. He seems very passionate and I respect that.

    Wish we had more people like this. One of the great things s4e1 has done is bring back a lot of fans of old which are not used and won't accept half assed shit.

    This guy seems like a douche =P

  7. Orta says:

    It's 10 minutes and in at least 6 he raises valid points and makes a nice comparison. That part that is worth watching starts at the two minute mark. Also, Barry posted this on the forum 20 years ago.

    The physics are different but they aren't so bad as described in the video. I don't care when Sonic doesn't continue to rotate when he falls down somewhere. Calling people idiots for liking the game is just ridicolous. In my opinion the game is great, I like it a lot more then the old 2D Sonics.

  9. Sybnios says:

    All those idiots that complain about the physics of Sonic 4 are pretty much pathetic fools that know shit about videogames. You can't say a beautiful and original game that sucks because someone forces the physics to look bad! Or because Sonic doesn't spin when he falls!?! Miserable fools that have lost it! Get a hold of yourselves and that one goes to all those haters out there! Enjoy quality games like Sonic 4!

    Some people need to get a life.

    The simple fact is the game is fine as long as you hold the forward button, you let it go and there is a problem.

    His candy experiment was a good illustration.
