Looks pretty darn good thus far and I'm digging online co-op. I always loved the offline (obviously) co-op of Sonic 2 where you would race through special stages together on a split screen. It would be neat to see something similar again. I enjoyed Episode I but stopped just short of the end when the final chained bosses just got to be too much of a hassle. There certainly looks to be a lot more visual variety in Episode II.

The split-screen in Sonic 2 was actually competitive, not co-op. It was fun though! And the XBLA version has online competitive multiplayer (still in split-screen). Sonic 2's co-op was local only, with Tails tagging along on the same screen as Sonic.

I agree that the last boss of Sonic 4: Episode I is very annoying.

The split screen Sonic 2 Vs was awesome when you switched all the boxes to Teleport, nothing like swapping places just before the other guy crosses the line :)

Own Sonic 4 Episodes I and II on the same console. You will get Episode Metal for free, play as Metal Sonic in 4 exclusive episodes.

Not sure about the details yet. I'm sure someone will post something more detailed on this soon.

Played the demo and it was okay, but reviews are ripping it apart.

Which is really surprising me. I personally thought it was well done and a huge improvement over episode 1.

Most reviewers just don't know what they want from a Sonic game it seems. They'll say a Sonic game needs "x" to improve and then they put that in a Sonic game and then it gets complained about.
