Hey. This is better than ep 1 and I love the special stages I vote The Xbox version 10 out of 10! I vote this game all 1.0 as (100%) and 10

I'm really glad they brought back Metal Sonic, now if they will only bring back Silver. The only games he was in were Sonic the Hedgehog, and the Sonic Rivals games, and Generations but you couldn't play as him and he has the best Sonic theme song ever. The only ones that made any use of his psychic powers were Sonic 06 and Generations but 06 was glitchy so no one wants to buy it (except blindly devoted Sonic fans like me) and he was awesome in Generations but you couldn't play as him.

I would have liked to see a little more of what Metal Sonic can do but just knowing that he's there is enough for me.

@notserbamma I find it amazing that you have the mystical power to be able to tell how game physics are JUST from looking at a gameplay trailer and not playing the game yourself. @skullflower I really couldn't agree more.

Bawww bawww physics. Shut up, you ungrateful whiners. Also, is that the menu music from Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing I'm hearing?

dude the physics look EXACTLY THE SAME as the last game. WTF man???? Looks like they spent more time changing sonic's run animation than they did changing the gameplay mechanics. Get outta here man this is ridiculous. Just use the physics from Sonic Generations or something man, jesus christ...

I personally didn't mind the the way Sonic controlled in Ep. 1 (this coming from an old school Sonic fan). If they change it for Ep. 2 to make it like the old Megadrive games, then I won't have too much complaints neither.

I find it hard to imagine that Sega didn't take on board criticisms of the terrible physics in Ep I and address them, but you never know. Nice to see some new ideas with that combined Sonic & Tails spin dash.

OMG! STOP! PLEASE STOP, SEGA! THIS IS TOO MUCH! Jesus! 3 all-new levels to play. Why don't they just release one last great, full 2D Sonic game and call it a day. And listen to all these idiots praising the video like the next coming of Christ. Society is de-evolving little by little.

Now you see Episode 1 I wasn't all that amazed with, it was just a HD re-release more than anything, but this one just looks brilliant. I've always been a fan of the old Sonic games and it's good to know the little blue ball of fluff has still got it in him :) p.s. @Slagar You totally have the best avatar of anyone on this website. Quality stuff!! :D

seems a great return for old school sonic gameplay, starting for the classic "SEGA" at the beggining

I like the shout out to Sonic two in the emblem, how sonic has his thumb out and tails has his fist up

People complaining below: they have fixed the physics, or at least they said they will, and I'm pretty sure they mentioned multiplayer (and with tails there it seems silly not to include). Also I think this looks a lot different to sonic generations, new levels, the fact you have tails with you, I'm worried about the tails sonic combo things which are shown in the video, but I'd say they can pull it off. Sega are listening to there fans and they've shown it with some fantastic games: 4ep 1, generations, colors (also if you look at all the handheld versions of sonic i think most of them are gems)
