This game has online co-op! And it works well. It's not like the Sonic 2 co-op, where Tails will just get left behind. You just have to tap a button to reunite Tails and Sonic. The online seems to be sturdy. I had a little bit of lag during the final Acts, but it never became unplayable. But don't expect to just find some rando online, because I don't think many people even REALIZE the online co-op exists. It's not even listed on the steam features blurb. Plus it's a million times better than Episode 1. Skip right to episode 2. And don't believe the people who say this game is "the worst Sonic game ever." It's FUN. And the music and level design are both on-point. The homing mechanism is a little bit broken, though. And there are several frustrating moments towards the end. But it's not a bad game, dammit. It's probably not worth a full $15, though. Or maybe it is, if you can find someone to play with.

As some others have said, Episode II is a big improvement over episode I, and I haven't played completely through both games, though I do find them enjoyable. The price is way too high, so just get the Hits collection to pick them up so you have something else to play when you're really, REALLY bored.

In good conscience, I can't recommend either Sonic 4 episodes - am I the only one that can notice how SLOW these games are? Is it just me? The trailers looked like the games moved much faster, but then when I play them, much, much slower. It used to be that you could finish a level in about 1-2 minutes or so, it feels as if they artificially slowed down the game so that you'll take longer to complete it and they can say it's longer. If I'm wrong, I'd be happy to be corrected. As a long time Sega fan bordering on "fanboy" status (but not quite as manic and irritating) I have to wonder what Sonic Team was thinking.

The Good Points: I think the graphics are gorgeous. New high-stylized Sonic does look a little odd in a 2-D platformer, but the levels look nice and the artwork is on point. The combine gimmicks are fun to an extent which makes for some cute "aw" moments. In other words, the game is great to look at. It doesn't lose points there. As has been said many times before I got anywhere near it, the physics are VERY improved over the first Sonic 4 game. Boss battles are cool looking and great.

The Bad Points: Gimmicks are gimmicks are gimmicks, they DO get tired after a little while. This isn't my biggest gripe with the game, however, which is that the game just feels way slower than any previous Sonic title. If they slowed this down in an attempt to get new people interested in the games, they alienated their original fanbase that enjoyed the games for their fast-paced fluidness. These games aren't fluid, they're clunky and slow. Improved physics over the first installment or not, they're simply too slow-paced to get a good rhythm and pace going throughout the games. The music is really, really bad. Mute the music and put on some of your own tunes, just don't play anything too fast because the game's pacing is a mix between the average tempos of Pink Floyd and Enya. How are you gonna slow down Sonic? Some parts will make you feel like you're playing the 2012 version of Atari 2600 E.T.

On one final note, I have to say that someone at Sega REALLY likes sparkles. They will absolutely put a sparkle type effect on anything they can just to use that one sound effect that they made a few years ago over, and over, and over, and over again. There's nothing entirely wrong with this sound effect, it just gets kind of boring after awhile.

Decent effort, but I don't feel this does anything to improve the controversial and arguable standards of the franchise considering the previous installments (and I DO think that Sonic Generations was a lot of fun and is a lot more fun than these, because they didn't slow Sonic down.)

5/10 - Sonic disaster, not sonic speed and playability. Again, it's not all bad, get it in the Hits collection, but don't spend the money on the game by itself.

Like all games, StH4 has its problems, but I don't think that ruins it for the game. While it's very true that you're going to have far easier a time with a controller than a keyboard/mouse, overall, the game is very well put together. Piece by piece, here's what I think.

The music, like for all Sonic games, is very well done and feels very fitting. Every single stage sounds appropriate, from White Park Zone sounding very much like a snowy wonderland to Oil Desert Zone sounding like an intimidating desert factory. The music itself is composed fantastically, with nothing in it that would grate on the ears, and even the new power-up music doesn't sound too bad.

The controls and physics take some getting used to, especially if you haven't played a game with Sonic's acceleration need; thankfully, it's been improved somewhat from Episode 1, making it less bothersome. They can also be frustrating at times, but once you get over the slight learning curve, it never feels rage-inducing or overly frustrating. Annoying at times, yes, but at least here, it won't ever feel like the game is actively hating you and all you stand for. Sky Fortress' changed controls can take a bit to adapt to, especially if you're playing co-op, but other than that, failures mostly feel like skill or mistakes rather than bad controls.

The Zone desgins are wonderful as well. Each Zone gives a feel of some of the older games' Zones, but at the same time, they also have unique little twists or tricks that makes them feel like their own unique places as well. From White Park's snowy theme park feeling to Oil Desert's very industrialized setting, even if there aren't as many of them as in other games, they leave a mark.

The game is, despite some claims, not that much shorter than the other four games it emulates (Sonic 1, 2, 3, S&K). While there are only 4 normal Zones, every Zone has 3 Acts, plus a stand-alone "act" that's the boss of that Zone (not counting the final Zone). As an added bonus, you can replay any Special Zone you've beaten for fun, or to practice for harder ones.

Speaking of the Special Zone, the special stages from Sonic 2 make a return! And to add to the fun of the "friendly competition" of the ring gathering, the animation played when going between checkpoints is actually different depending on which character has the most rings. The stages, as usual, can be easy or hard depending on how good you are at picking up rings while dodging, but they definitely have the same feel as the old-school ones.

The co-op for the game can be either a blessing or a curse, depending on if you have someone to play with or not. The game feels very much like it was built specifically FOR two players to work together on it, which means if you do have two people, you can do a lot you wouldn't get to do or pull off some neat tricks. At the same time, if you're playing alone, it can sometimes be a little frustrating or difficult precisely because of the build intending two people.

All in all, it's definitely not a perfect game by any means... but it's a game that those who enjoy that style of gameplay should, in my opinion, pick up if they can, regardless of whether they're a Sonic fan or not. Those who are fans of the old-style Sonic, however, will definitely find even more enjoyment in it with all the throwbacks. However, I would DEFINITELY reccomend a controller if at all possible.

SEGA managed to make something that felt both old-school and unique with Sonic 4 Episode 2... and how many games can claim that?

I want to get this out of the way before starting this review, why was this episodic? This easily could've been the next main series Sonic game as Episode 2 looks WAY different than Episode 1. But was it for the best? Yes. The engine has been updated for full 3D graphics like in Sonic Generations and the physics have been fixed, which was a major problem in Episode 1. Another problem in Episode 1 was unoriginality, which Episode 2 changes around (apart from Not Wing Fortress Zone). The bosses are now not complete jokes but I found the Eggman bosses annoying and enduring complete with a 17 second loop boss theme. I have much more enjoyment with the Metal Sonic fight in White Park before Sky Fortress ruined his reputation. The music is still Mega Drive samples but I found more catchy tunes in this game than Episode 1. Also, this game has Tails who follows Sonic like in Sonic 2 and you can perform tag actions with him, like flying, swimming underwater and 69. So is this an improvement over Episode 1? In my opinion, yes. Still not worthy of the name Sonic 4 but it's a decent improvement. 8/10
