Given it’s a free joke download, we’re not going to give The Murder Of Sonic The Hedgehog a score but we still recommend you try it out for yourself, be you a casual or diehard Sonic fan. Hopefully next year other publishers produce more April Fool’s gags of this quality and not just the usual tedious fake news.

Against all odds, The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog has a more sincere script than you would expect from anything that was released on April 1 for free ninety-nine. This is a fun game with genuine laughs, terrific art, and a killer soundtrack, and you don’t have to pay a dime to play it. I could quibble about minor stuff if I wanted, but at the end of the day, I’m happy it exists at all, and that it not only exists, but that it’s this joyful.

The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog has many merits, above all the ability to once again decline the character of Sonic in another genre.

Chock full of mystery and fanservice, The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog takes the blue blur in a refreshing new direction. This trip on The Mirage Express might be a radical detour for the blue blur, but one should grab their ticket for this wild ride.

While the visual novel format isn't exactly classic Sonic, it's a breath of fresh air for a franchise that lost its stride for a few years. It's safe to say I'm hopeful for the future of the Sonic franchise.

Despite being originally released as some sort of April Fool’s prank, The Murder of Sonic The Hedgehog is not a joke. Sure, it’s silly as hell, but it’s a pretty decent and lighthearted visual novel with some clever writing and a unique premise. Even if it was released as a paid product, I’d call it worth your time, but as a Steam freebie? Just go for it, we’ve all gotten worse stuff on that platform for free.

The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog is a very competent way to revisit the blue hedgehog universe from a totally different angle. Made with a lot of polishment for its characters, the game mixes a simple but well-executed point-and-click with isometric platforming sections to create a must-play experience for fans that's also worth it for those who just want a good adventure game to pass time.
