Sonic is like your wife, you have to deal with a ten years worth of ♥♥♥♥ before you can make sweet sugary love with her
In Sonic's case Ten years of ♥♥♥♥ = Sonic 2006, Boom, Lost World, and Werehog stages, sweet sugary love = The good sonic games. And if you're seriously wondering where the wife is in this case, It's Sega. Stoopid.
Sonic The Hedgehog 4/Episode II are two games that I think deserve more love! They're not amazing but they are damn good games, and if they're on sale christmas you should buy the entire Sonic collection as it includes Sonic 4 and Episode II, if you're too lazy to wait buy episode II, then Sonic 4. Why? Sonic 4 is stupid, Episode II is good. TAILS. TAILS. .. .. . . . .. . PERIODS! TAILS, PAC-MAN LOSE LOSE LOSE LOSE!
Basically, buy Sonic 4 - Episode II Empire's Awakening Strikes Back The Revenge of The Return of The Jedi DX HD Remix then buy Sonic 4.
