    Better than episode 1, but still not worthy of sonic 3 and knuckles sequel.

    Rated on May 15, 2012 by Mr_Person_1

    This game is very good, (when compared to Sonic 4 Episode 1) but it still is not as good or even remotely good as Sonic 3 and Knuckles. I bought this game, because I am a die hard sonic fan and love t...

    Episode 2 provides a better Sonic 4 Experience with its new physics, graphics, and Multiplayer.

    Rated on November 06, 2012 by sonictrainer

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 was a peculiar game.It's a Modern Era Sonic game that's trying to act like the Genesis Era Sonic games. As a result, it lacks parts of what made the games that came bef...

    I am greatly impressed by this game.

    Sonic 4.1 was not what we hoped. Wonky physics, lacking originality, and just plain uninspired. Episode 2 however, well that is a different story entirely. The Physics, are close to the classics, you...

    After Colors and Generations should you really bother with the second part of Sonic 4.

    Rated on May 22, 2012 by chocolate1325

    Sonic 4 Episode 2 is the second and final part in the Sonic saga and if you know most Sonic stories by now then there's no need to explain. Story Dr Robotnik AKA Eggman has revived Metal Sonic w...

    While it improves on the first, in the end this game feels like an unneeded visitor from the past.

    It's funny how quickly the minds of gamers and fans can change within a couple years. Back when Sonic 4 was announced, gamers and Sonic fans had been jaded and tired of broken promises. Watching Seg...

    This game is the pure definition of old school Sonic.

    Rated on May 21, 2012 by OrangeHero12

    When I heard that the second episode of Sonic 4 was coming out soon, I was really excited. Part of me thought that I was getting my hopes up and that this game couldn't possibly be that good. That par...

    Sonic's sequel in returning to his roots takes another great step to the good ol' days

    Rated on June 11, 2012 by Drkirk08

    Sega is continuing to revive the beloved blue blur. Where the first episode made mistakes, this one managed to patch up and got Sonic back on track. Despite it being a short game to a certain extent, ...

    It's a slight improvement upon Episode I, but still lacks the charm of the classic games.

    Rated on November 28, 2012 by Sonic3456

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II is the second part of the full Sonic the Hedgehog 4. Lets get this over with. Storyline: Directly after Episode I Sonic and Tails are off on another Adventure. Not...

    Better than episode 1. Lots of fun, great graphics and gameplay.

    Rated on December 15, 2012 by Jefferios

    The bosses are challenging and original. Level design is fun. The addition of Tails is much more substantial that it was in Sonic 2 on the Genesis. Graphics on the PC are very nice, cool lighting a...

    And you thought Episode 1 was bad???

    Rated on May 14, 2013 by Shawn_Watson

    Seriously, who is in charge at Team Sonic? Who is supervising the quality control at Sega? Who gives a product like this a big tick and judges it fit for release? They ought to be fired! I still en...
