I played them on my Wii when they came out. The graphics are crappy and they are too hard. What happened to Shadow and Silver? They are way better characters mew

I never played the other Sonics. I only buy Hard Copies of games. None of this downloadable junk (SEGA, make Sonic 4 on disc!).

I have Smash Bros, tho, and I know Tails, Knuckles, and Silver are in the first few games. They are all in Green Hill Zone.

I can actually type into this site from my iPhone.
Unlike that other (which shall remain nameless) piece of junk.

I want to be excited but for some reason i'm just not.
Is it me or does Sonic look too big on the screen?

I'm annoyed by the running animation, but I know we haven't seen anything yet, so let's wait.

But homing attacks?
Anyway, everyone is excited for this, but I have a feeling it will flop... I didn't have this feeling with Sonic 06 or the Black Knight... So this one must be good.

What's wrong with the running animation?
Is it too slow?

RubyEclipse (SEGA Employee) said that isn't the fastest animation of Sonic running, and that we will see the fastest one sometime in the future.

Yes the run animation is to slow apparently however it was adressed by a Sega community manager:

Quote
Hello everyone!

Today we have some good news to bring you guys in regard to Sonic's running animation in Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I! Specifically, we wanted to cover a topic that many of you have asked about after seeing the trailer.

Q: Is the running animation in the trailer what Sonic's fastest running animation will look like in Sonic the Hedgehog 4? It looks kind of slow, don't you think?

A: Actually, it is not his fastest speed! There is a faster animation for Sonic's running that was not shown in the trailer, and is more akin to what you might be familiar seeing from Sonic 3 & Knuckles or Sonic CD.

So there you have it! We'll get to show you guys firsthand what that running animation looks like in the future - but until then, rest assured that there's a lot more to the game than what you saw in the trailer: running animations included.

Have a great weekend,
Ruby

Hope they release all episodes on one disc.

I hope so, too.

I don't feel like clogging my Xbox 360 hard drive with episodic content.

I already felt like I wasted money on Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition last summer.

Dude, that game was great!

But anyway, I'm cautiously optimistic about this. Smart money never ever bets on Sonic Team doing good.

I think it's roughly the same screen area as the first one.. Not very usual these days though.

About the animations, it's like they made a 3D sprite sheet. There are no animation transitions. You turn around, Sonic simply flips horizontally.

(god, I love being able to use auto text correction again)

I like that. It just looks classic and functional.

In like 2 days, another part of the Sonic 4 site unlocks, and it's under the characters section.

I actually really hope at least Tails is playable. It would be weird to have a "Sonic 4" without him trailing behind you.
