Sonic the Hedgehog 4 – Episode 2: Gameplay trailer retains classic formula
The upcoming latest installment for one of the videogame world’s most recognized animal-based characters, Sonic the Hedgehog’s Sonic the Hedgehog 4 – Episode 2, has a new trailer out. Gamers interested in fast paced arcade style action should check out the trailer to see if the game can live up to their expectations. Why?
The trailer isn’t composed of cinematics or animation unrelated to the upcoming release. Instead, the trailer shows key gameplay segments. I love gameplay trailer. There’s little opportunity to fluff, obscure or otherwise blow smoke. The simple truth is gameplay trailers are where the “rubber meets the road” when it comes to reconciling game hype to reality. Just from the snippets of gameplay we’ve seen in the latest trailer released for Hedgehog 4 – Episode 2, we’re happy to report that it is faithful to the formula that makes the Sonic Hedgehog series such a long-lived video game franchise.
Lots of intricate puzzles. Lots of graphic dynamism. Lots of differing ways to claim in game boosts. And it sticks close to the game mechanics (such as knocking down obstacles, jumping up for boosts, and other dynamic actions) that has garnered the series millions of fans the world over. Check out the trailer and see for yourself. The title is slated for release in the spring.
