5.0 out of 5 stars The REAL Sonic 4!!! May 15, 2012
I love Episode 1 and all, but as much as I enjoy playing it, it's easy to see why others bashed it. It was a good Sonic game, but we were expecting a Sonic 4. And since the game was composed nearly entirely of rehashed materials of Sonics 1 & 2 (It may as well be called Sonic Pocket Adventure 2), it did not deliver the experience a sequel should.

What's important about Episode 2 is that it IS that Sonic 4 we've been waiting for! It's complete with all-new zones, Tails, catchy music (Catchier than Episode 1, too), and even more elements that made the Genesis Sonics so great (It has momentum, people!).

As with the gameplay itself, it's pure 2D Sonic platforming action remastered, and boy has it held up pretty well! Everything has that exciting feel from the original Genesis games. The graphics are beyond-awesome (Check out them backgrounds!), the music is catchy as heck, and the game as a whole is just flowing with excellence! 4 zones (Not counting Death Egg Mk. II Zone) may sound like this would be a short game, but the levels themselves last for 2 to 4 minutes (Sonic 3 and Knuckles did this as well)! I timed myself once, and the game lasted 1 hour and 35 minutes, which is just as long, if not slightly longer, than a Genesis Sonic title. And that's without collecting the Chaos Emeralds, via Special Stages, and Red Rings scattered around in levels. Both of those elements make for some nice replayability.

And of course, we have Tails. How does Sonic's sidekick help enhance the gameplay? Well, if you have played Sonic 3, you would know that he could fly, and even helped lift Sonic out of danger. This game has that feature, but now you can also have him hold onto Sonic as you control him swimming underwater!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sonic Rush May 21, 2012
It has been 20 years since Sonic The Hedgehog has been with a loveable sidekick, and that is definitely the joy of the simple and adorable Tails. Since his debut in Sonic The Hedgehog 20 on the old Sega Genesis back in 1992, he has been just as much a joy to watch. But it has been awhile since Sonic The Hedgehog has shown a drive from his classic 2-D Genesis days. Gamers have seen that last year with Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 1. That game was more like a throwback to the original Sonic The Hedgehog, but it didn't drive as much in gameplay as the older games showed from the 90's. Now that Sega has decided to give it another go again, they have a lot more to offer overall with the new Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2. But is it worth the money in challenge. For die-hard gamers it is a yes, and for what made Sonic so popular in the first place for new ones, that could be a no.

Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2, for download is actually a step back into the old direction that many gamers have loved about Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and 3 very well from the classic Sega Genesis days. The gameplay handles better as Sonic & Tails team up again to fight against Dr. Robotnik, and his plot to take over the universe, and stop Sonic at all costs. The graphics stand well just like Sonic 4: Episode did, but it has a bit more in the gameplay that is nostalgic, from the levels and bosses, all the way to the special stages for those chaos emeralds. The stages take it up a notch, while paying homage to Sonic 2 in its half-pipe speed stages. But the control handles better in the game, as you try and defeat menacing bosses, including the return of the vulgar Metal Sonic from Sonic CD, and a nasty boss fight with Dr. Robotnik in the Death Egg Zone, where a brawl awaits beyond control.

4.0 out of 5 stars Serious review this time May 16, 2012
While short, the games is satisfying and greatly improves what SEGA had going with episode one, but it's still definitely not my favorite. I definitely liked how they changed the physics-- the way that you control sonic just feels so much better. The levels were more creative, so it felt more like a sequel than a tribute this time around. I also have to complement them on the new graphics engine. The lighting and water effects are gorgeous, though I must wonder why they didn't just go with DirectX 11 after finally jumping up from 9. The character models were particularly impressive in their animation. I took loads of screenshots, and in each one, Sonic and Tails had expressions on their faces to reflect their surroundings. I can't remember seeing that since Wind Waker. All-in-all, it's a great game, but I'd recommend waiting for a sale to buy it; $15 is a bit much.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great Sonic game that looks amazing December 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
Sonic 4 Episode 2 is a vast improvement over the first game. The physics now play as a modern side-scrolling Sonic game should. Tails is a great addition, though only being able to play as him alone in multiplayer makes the "I Love Tails" achievement rather annoying to achieve. The boss fights are new (the first boss also pays homage to the Aquatic Run (sonic 2) boss), and the level design is much better, but there is some deliberate re-making involved (ie. Sky Fortress). After my computer failed to run Generations, it was nice to play this with full specs, the game looks great! The only thing stopping this from being 5 stars is that it is not the total experience that Sonic 4 should have been, but it is still a great Sonic game. In my opinion, it could have used elemental shields and Knuckles, and then it would be a true sequel, rather than a nostalgic kick.
