Episode 1 made money because of all the lies, spin and hype, Episode 2 is being released now to a more cautious crowd and can only make money by being a good game - plain and simple. If it IS good, I want to encourage them to carry on making 2D Sonics and will be happy to buy. On that note, I agree about making Sonic 5, but as for making it like episode 2... no! Yes, it is beautiful to look at, yes the physics might be improved but it is still very much a compromise as far as I can see. The modern models and homing attack are just too polarizing, and a Sonic 5 that builds on Sonic 4 would be in danger of drifting yet even further away from the original, classic feel (see Resident Evils 4 and 5 for example). Levels like Seaside Hill and Planet Wisp with Classic Sonic just showed how awesome a possible Sonic 4 could have looked.
