My dentist said I need to get all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed because they are impacted. Judging by my x ray, would you advise getting them all removed?

I would suggest you to remove them due to their inclination towards the second molars. This may cause problems in the future. Go for it now as it will be much easier for you because they still lack their roots.

I would hold off on removing these for two reasons:
1. The roots have not fully formed and it is hard to remove teeth that don't have any roots yet (from a surgical standpoint, it is much less challenging when roots have partially formed)
2. The teeth may still upright as your jaw grows. Just a rough estimate tells me you are about 17 years old and your jaw is still growing and more room is being created.
