Added DiffLines:

* SocializationBonus: The game with a second player is ''significantly'' easier. Player 2 only shows up as a cursor rather than a second character, which means they're in no danger of taking harm (though this does mean [[WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou Player 1's defeat means a game over for both players]]). The game averts MultiplayerDifficultySpike, so it's perfectly possible for Player 2 to take breaks and still complete the game or for Player 1 to complete 2P mode without the second controller being touched ''at all'' (though that's missing the whole point of the mode).

[[spoiler:On the other hand, the Creators, who are defending Inner Space, created humanity for the sole purpose of having a RedshirtArmy in their war against Outer Space.

Humans are just caught in the middle, pawns for both sides, and whoever eventually wins will not particularly care about humanity's well-being... or continued existence.]]

* CulturalTranslation: The Japanese word for "God" crops up often in the original script. The translated version either replaces it with "the Creators" or removes it altogether in each instance, undoubtedly to avoid religious controversy in the West.

Stage six reveals they've been fighting each other, in addition to you, though it you look carefully, there are some hints even before then. Even the Nebulox would rather avoid some of the larger keepers.

* ScoringPoints: Par for the course, but things are done differently from its predecessor. For starters, instead of picking up point items without taking any damage to rack up the highest points, there's a score multiplier that boosts score from enemies and coins, from x0.0 to x16. The multiplier raises as you shoot stuff up, but easily goes down for taking damage. Also new to this game are special medals that rewards you bonus points at end of the stage for performing certain feats (e.g. killing ''X'' number of a certain enemy, parrying certain attacks). Finally, since the game gives you the option to take flight at any time (except in Stage 5 and the very end of Stage 6), you gain points simply for being on the ground; standing still yields a small stream of points, but being in parts where you walk or especially run will earn more points. Should you die and continue, your score resets to 0, much like in arcade games.

Conceived by Treasure not long after the Wii came out, and green lit due in no small part to the sales of the original game on Wii VirtualConsole. ''Sin and Punishment 2'' was released, with full English ''and'' Japanese voice-acting to boot, in Japan on October 29, 2009, in Europe on May 7, 2010, and in North America on June 27, 2010. So now it's even ''less'' of a WidgetSeries.
