The Sonic 4 saga continues in Episode II with the return of a beloved sidekick and fan-favorite villains!
Metal Sonic has teamed up with Dr. Eggman, and the dubious duo are together on Little Planet, ready to build a new Death Egg, this time constructed around Little Planet. It’s up to Sonic and his trusty sidekick to foil Dr. Eggman’s plans and take down Death Egg mk.II. With a classic ‘Sonic feel,’ enhanced gameplay, five distinctive Zones, and a soundtrack composed by Jun Senoue, this speedy sequel that originally launched in May of 2012 does not disappoint.
This release of Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode II also includes Episode Metal unlocked from the get-go. This bonus set of stages sees you playing as Metal Sonic across fiendishly difficult versions of Zones from Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode I. Complete them to discover the complete story behind Sonic The Hedgehog 4!

Ratings and Reviews
Update was a downgrade
I am giving this game 5 stars because of so much reminiscing from the classic Sonic the Hedgehog games. I was 8 years old when Sonic came out in 1991; if it weren’t for Sonic, I wouldn’t have developed an interest in video games, and have loved his games since then...not including a few past and present flops (Sonic Boom the worst of it all). I’ve even done much fan art and my own story writing/graphic novel work, as many fans of pretty much *anything* will do.
However...I am removing a star because of the “update”. When I first got this game I had to buy it...but it was ad free and wonderfully enjoyable. Now with the downgrading “update”, I have to, in a sense, buy it a SECOND TIME just to remove the ads! I tried to restore the purchase of the game, but I only got an error, telling me that there were no purchases to restore. That takes the enjoyment of the game and tosses it in a pit of fire.
This issue is apparently a very large problem for all players who have already paid for the game. And if this “update” moves to episode I, which I have as well, there’s going to be a lot more upset players who have already paid for the game(s).
Please, Sega, either refund all purchases that were done to originally buy this game, or automatically upgrade the game to premium for those players who have already paid for the game. It would make a whole lot of rather unhappy players feel better.
SEGA You are on a roll!💨
You are on a roll SEGA. i’m really impressed with the games you have made especially this one, I wasn’t able to get my hands on episode 1. but it is OK at least this one is for free! Ann a lot of people don’t pay attention to these type of games but HEY it’s a sonic game for crying out loud am I right, anyways back with the game I really like how you added the chaos emeralds so that you can turn into supersonic but the last two emeralds are very hard maybe try making them a little more easier I know they are supposed to get harder and harder each emerald it takes but how about you try making them is just to give people a chance to get super more easily, also will you bring hypersonic back I know the super emeralds are in another dimension (I read a article about the super emeralds) but can you just involve hyper because hyper is the most powerful even as dark sonic he is the most powerful but I bet dark sonic over come hyper so despite that matter but honestly I really want hyper back because he is the STRONGEST form out of super sonic I know the game is already out but could you try making another version please and thanks, I hope you enjoyed this rate review and I will hopefully see you in another game😉
Sonic 4 episode 2 is still a mystical and interesting game
(Best to read if played game before, might spoil) Well well well, sonic 4 episode 2, do I have to say more? The stages are so good as well as the music! however some stages are pretty bad. The final boss is okay and the Sky fortress act 1 is a little boring. But EVERY stage besides those are just pure fun to run through. Sylvania castle zone is a great discount of green hill zone, white park is amazing! (Besides act 3) and oil desert is EXTREMELY UNDERRATED as well as sky fortress. it’s like a ban-aid was put on the physics, there kind of better BUT NOT REALLY. some bosses are so irritating as well but the music is amazing, but the final special stage is the WORST. It requires so much trial and error… instead of you getting 300 rings, you have to get from 100 to 400 rings or else you lose! But the other special stages are good too, and when you get super sonic, he feels so refreshing. Sadly u get nothing for the good ending when you get all the chaos emeralds. With a few shortcomings it by far one of the best sonic games ever.
