Sonic 4 EP II is compared to EP I a hell lot of better. The movement is finally working and doesn't feel weird anymore. The soundtrack is still great and the game does not feel anymore like a rip-off. It's fast and the highlit of the game are the boss enemies, because you haven't seen those boss fights in previous sonic games. It feels so more fresh and more like a unique game. Summed up you can say: Average Levels and Awesome boss fights.

Rating: 7/10

A huge improvement over Episode 1, with a lot more challenge and more feautures, this game is a true sequel to the first one without a doubt. Where the hell is Episode 3 though?

A little better than Episode I, but not by much. The inclusion of Tails means his flying ability and ring-collecting can negate some of the cheap deaths and awful level and boss design.

The graphics, or at least the zones seem even better. There's a snow level with the aurora in the sky and plenty going on in the background, and the Death Egg has a bit of a badass purple makeover.

But the cheap deaths and bad gameplay still remain, and looks can't save everything. I just whizzed through this without worrying about rings (you're going to lose them several times anyway!) just to get through the game.

This game is a nice improvement over episode 1 but it's still miles away from sonic generations! My major problem with this game is the acceleration of the characters, it's very slow

Sonic is a 2d platform game.

If I look to the old Era of sonic games.
Sonic 4 episode 2 is not bad and it has some good points.
You have many option to play and if you buy both games you get some extra stuff.
Still I prefure the old Sonic from the Sega Megadrive / Genesis era.

Game is very extended and there are many things to do .... even become super sonic and that is cool.
I still find the new generation sonic very slow when starting to run and missing the feeling having real speed.
Modern sonic has some cool moves like the dash move and this gives you a new dimension of playing this game.
PLaying with tails is cool and also give some new moves and ways to play.

Sonic is a good plaftorm game only try also the classic versions.

I give it a 7/10 score.
