* FreudWasRight: Sonic and Tails' double spin dash has already been called "the 69 attack" in a few forums.

** ''Sonic 4''[='=]s eventual cancellation and the team's lack of hope that it will continue split the fans. Some say that the project was ultimately a failure and deserved to be cancelled as the developers ultimately failed to find what made the classic games so beloved and tried to shoehorn new developments into it. Others believe that the series never unfairly evaluated and that it should have been concluded, especially with ''Episode II'' fixing much of the perceived problems with ''Episode I''.

** Also, as usual, [[SuperMode Super Sonic]]. This time around it's taken even further since he can no longer drown (meaning the only things that can kill him are BottomlessPits and being crushed) and he automatically lights up Lost Labyrinth Act 2.

** Later, the game gets delayed for tweaking, fine-tuning and an iPhone release. Many of the fans find it a time for rejoicing, as they have hopes that SEGA is actually paying attention to the complaints. Other fans are upset with SEGA for hyping the fanbase up over a delay, and they felt the game would've been fine coming out as it was.

** No Wii release for Episode II prompted this, as Wii owners questioned what made it impossible to do on the Wii when the first episode worked fine - It's largely down to the new graphics engine & better quality music files making the game too large for the Wii Shop. This has conversely opened up a camp of people blaming the Wii for the poor graphics & music quality of Episode I. Another subset of the Wii owners are complaining that because Episode II isn't seeing a release on the Wii, they won't be able to access Episode Metal without repurchasing Episode I. (That said, nothing has been confirmed about a WiiU re-release yet, so there may still be hope.)

* CriticalDissonance: While this has always been a common trope with the series, Sonic 4 takes it to a weird level. Critics gave Episode 1 good to okay reviews while most fans view it as an inferior game. Meanwhile, most critics ripped into episode 2, yet most fans view episode 2 as a marked improvement over the original.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: Episode II corrected some of the criticisms of Episode I, fixing the criticized physics engine and lowering the amount of [[NostalgiaLevel levels styled over older, famous ones]].

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: A lot of the complaints from the ''three seconds of footage alone'' range from Sonic having the modern design in a sequel to the old school games, Eggman not being called Robotnik, that it looks like it'll become a "[[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Sonic Rush 3]]" and that it has the Homing Attack. Some are even complaining about how the game is using a sleeker HUD instead of reusing the admittedly blander one found in the older games.

** Casino Street Act 2. The console's Road of Cards version features large groups of cards that hand out items as they're flipped, meaning you can take about a dozen lives every time you play it. The mobile version of Act 2 is instead an effortless mini pinball table you have to collect points in.
** White Park Act 2 is an easy rollercoaster to run around, in contrast to the platfoming featured in the other acts.
** Death Egg Mk 2 Act 1 has two boss fights, but also features surprisingly simple level design you can run freely through.

** And before that, the fight against Metal Sonic on the roller coaster ranks as one of the franchise's most intense boss battles yet. It's a high-speed chase up and down the coaster's tracks where you have to dodge Metal Sonic's energy attacks, spin-dashes, and sudden pitfalls while desperately trying to strike him down. In this fight, Metal Sonic pretty much throws everything except the kitchen sink at you, and when you've whittled him down enough, he goes completely berserk and tries to blow the roller coaster to smithereens just to kill you.
