We here at Co-Optimus have been anxious to play Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II ever since we learned it would feature the return of Sonic 2-style co-op. The game is now live on Xbox Live Arcade, Playstation Network, and Steam, so teams of players can once again step into the shoes of Sonic and his effeminate pal Tails and take on the dastardly Eggman. To drive the point home, SEGA has released a short-but-sweet trailer showcasing many of Episode II's highlights (as well as the choice bonus content for Episode I owners).
A lot of cool moments there, especially the impressively-huge new bosses. How do you guys like the game so far?
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II features both local and online 2-player co-op. We'll have a full co-op review next week, courtesy of yours truly.
