Sonic 4

Remember back to Christmas, and we let you know that Sega and NVIDIA would be bringing an enhanced Tegra 3 version of Sonic 4: Episode II, and today is that day! If you thought Sega did a great job with Sonic 4 Episode I, wait until you try this one! Designed for the Tegra 3 SoC, the latest addition to the popular Sonic the Hedgehog franchise brings true console quality gaming, easy controls, and hours of fun for folks with the right hardware to run it. The rolling, the jumping, the bouncing -- it's all there, and looks as good as it ever did thanks to the new HD graphics engine and in-game physics, and the backgrounds and ambient sounds are done the way only the Tegra 3 can bring them to you.

If the single-player action isn't enough to get you excited about Sonic and Tails, grab a buddy with a Tegra 3 device and play co-op via Bluetooth. And when you hook up a wireless controller, it's just more fun than you can imagine. This game rocks!

its not believable that is on phone/tablet very fast and smooth well playied Tegra and Developers :)

I still dont understand why they arent pushing this for Tegra 2 devices. There are alot more 2 devices out there than 3. Why not maximize your profits?

How is this even a review? Seems like you guys accepted a fat wad of cash from nVidia, for that's all I see in the three paragraphs above, with half of the story detracting from sonic totally.

Yay, more pointless fragmentation. Nvidia is one of the worse things to happen to Android imo. Overhyped chips that have done little but fragment Android and make the gaming situation on the platform even more dismal. At least there is chainfire I guess.

I used to be addicted to Sonic on SEGA as a kid - it's an awesome game! Though US$4 is a bit pricey for an app. I would prefer downloading free games from Applorer, but will probably need to think twice about buying an Android game.

This sounds like a Sonic review from someone who has never actually played a Sonic game. Glad to know that the rolling, bouncing, and jumping is all there. Really informative stuff.
