I have been an avid gamer since I learned how to hold a controller. My favorite games include Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Mega Man, Ratchet & Clank, Resident Evil; the list could probably go on forever. I am also a big movie and television junkie. Pretty much anything technological or entertainment-related will satisfy my curiosity.
Lately, the Medal of Honor franchise has been in the shadow of the FPS behemoth that is Call of Duty. 2010’s Medal of Honor reboot received generally positive reviews and Electronic Arts aims to eclipse that with Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

Unbelievably, it’s been more than a year and a half since the release of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I in October 2010. Since then, there has certainly been no shortage of Sonic titles, including the better-than-expected Sonic Generations and a re-release of long-forgotten gem, Sonic CD. The question is, with so many other Sonic games to choose from, has Episode II been worth the wait?
