This forum is going to hunt me down for this, but I love Sonic 4. Possibly nostalgia plays a role in it, considering I grew up with this game. But before you ask "have you even played the classics lol" I did. I played the classics alongside 4. I always play the classics alongside 4. To my child mind, there was no difference between them. Today? I can tell the problems, but that doesn't prevent me from having fun and liking the game. Yes, the Spin Dash is weak, but the Air Dash/Homing attack makes up for it. It works well in 2D and I would like it to appear again. I also love the tag team combos in Ep.2, it is a pretty good touch, even though it does need getting used to. Yes, Sonic 4 isn't the best game in the franchise (my favorite is 3K), but it needs more love and acceptance in my opinion.
