The main line of Sonic the Hedgehog games (no spinoffs) has been on an upward trend with its most recent games after Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) because every game since then has received better reviews than this 2006 game. IGN thought that this 2006 game would “sabotage any hopes for a successful transition to the next-generation. …Players will die countless times as Sonic and friends plunge into the depths of the abyss thanks to unresponsive and plain whacky controls.” It gave the game a 4.8/10. The next game Sonic Unleashed recieved mixed reviews, praising the daytime levels and criticizing the nighttime levels. Metacritic gave it a 60/100 for much of the same reasons. The next game: Sonic 4 Episode 1 got mostly positive reviews. Game Rankings gave the iOs version a 74.29% using a variety of other game ranking websites. Metacritic gave the same game a 74/100 with the highest praising reviews calling it “deserving of the name ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 4′” and multiple reviewers have stated that it recaptures “a lightning fast 2D platform game that recovers what made the original game a true classic”. The Playstation 3 version got slightly lower at a 72, the X-box 360 game got a score of 74/100 and the Wii version notched the highest reviews at a strong 81/100. Sonic Colors’s reviews from Metacritic were consistent, scoring a 78 and 79 on the Wii and DS versions, respectively. One praises the “fantastic game. Not just a step in the right direction, but an unequivocal success. In fact, it’s the best entry in the series since the Blue Blur’s 16-bit heyday.” Another reviews Colors as “fast, frenetic fun with enough challenge to satisfy the hardcore crowd baying for a decent new Sonic game.” The following game was Sonic Generations, the 20th anniversary game. It was a diamond compared the 15th anniversary game. The X-Box 360 and Playstation 3 versions differed by only a single point in reviews by Metacritic. The homage to fans won praise for ” the perfect celebration of everything Hedgehog for any type of fan” and ” a successful combination of classic and modern gameplay, both of them polished and highly replayable, making this latest Sonic game the path to follow for future releases.” Sonic 4 Episode II lost a bit of ground. The reviews from Metacritic on the iOs version are that the game” isn’t quite the blue hero we know him to be, but it’s a step in the right direction and a decent platformer for fans of the series and those after a slick platformer.” The Playstation-3 and X-Box 360 got slightly more lower scores, but the game’s reintroduction of the Sonic & Tails duo last seen in Sonic 3 & Knuckles was “gives the perfect level of balance to correct mistakes made at mach speed.” In the last month, Sonic: Lost World has been released, however, it’s a little earlier to start judging the game.
