Ranking the Sonic games from worst to best

10. Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II

Tails could help you get through the rough spots in this Sonic game.


Sonic the Hedgehog 4 was based on the old Sega Genesis Sonic games, and this second episode brought some improvements to the table including better graphics and the presence of Sonic’s loveable sidekick Tails, meaning another player could take control of Tails for some fun cooperative multiplayer gameplay. The appearance of evil baddie Metal Sonic was also welcome, plus those who bought both episodes of Sonic the Hedgehog got to play as the metallic villain in a series of extra stages.

Sadly though, the gameplay here wasn’t that fast or exciting, and the boss fights were not the epic confrontations many were hoping for, rather they were something of a bore… So, in the end this had a hard time pleasing Sonic diehards, never mind the casual players, but you might still enjoy Sonic the Hedgehog 4 if you’re looking for some old-fashioned platform gameplay though.

Came out on: PC, iOS, Android, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, other systems.
