Sonic Heroes [PlayStation2] For the unknown
Top Customer Reviews
Well, Kids, Sonic is back and better than ever and now, thanks to some extremely brave and very, very well-executed gameplay changes, regains his foothold as the best platform hero in the world, bar none :-)
Granted, it feels all wrong playing Sonic with a PS 2 pad, but I know I speak for us all when I say I'd rather have Sega Games this way than not at all.
Sonic Heroes consists of all the usual levels - Seaside Hill Zone, Casino Nite Zone, etc., but it's in the teamwork where this game excels. Now, instead of just playing as one Hedgehog or one Echidna or one Bat or whatever, you have to employ teamwork across a cast of three characters per level in order to beat the game. There are 4 teams, so 12 playable characters in all - and range from Staples like Team Sonic (Sonic, Knuckles and Tails) to past characters (Rose the Bat, Big the Cat and Espiosa the... purple thing) to downright oddball characters (Charmy the Bee, for instance). On each team, one character is good for speed, one for strength and one for flying, and you do need to make good use of each character to beat the level you're currently playing. Also, the teams are graded in terms of difficulty, so beginners can start with Team Rose and work their way up, frustration-free.
This adds a huge sense of fun to the game, as well as keeping the Sonic concept fresh and exciting: hedgehog-runs-along-flat-plane is dull-dull-dull, but for the speed freaks the bonus levels are all about speed, and highly reminiscent of the Bonus Stages from Sonic 2.Read more ›
how can shadow be a robot or clone or watever the heck they say he is? i want my old shadow back :(. oh well, i'm guessing he's the real thing..hoping.
aside from that, there's great gameplay, stages, and everything else. i'm also glad that they brought the Chaotix back
espio and shadow
some frustrating moments
i can't figure out how to control the cannon in the chaotix metropolis level.
i hate team rose
ahh. the voice acting. let me rant for a second
Sonic:good, sounds like sonic
Tails: Oh gosh, i can;t stand his voice! grow up Tails!you should be at least 15 by now!HE SHOULDNT SOUND LIKE HE HAS ASTHMA
Knuckles:good, fits his character well
Shadow:good, kinda deeper and more mature than last time. at least he hasn't got that LOOK AT ME I'M BAD quiteish thing going on
Rogue: better.much better
Omega: it makes me want to smash things...i know he's a robot...but geez...
Amy: ok, i guess
Cream:waaaaay to high
Espio:nice, except when he does that army-general thing. he's sixteen. geez.
Vector:i don't really pay attention to his voice. i'm paying more attention to him throwing up his friends *shudder*
aside from the lack of being able to change their voices to japanese, this game is overall fun and original, and i will beat it....someday. until some new fantastic sonic game shows up, this will be my second favorite (it now goes SA2B, SH, and SA1 is tied for second.

I think it is fun and exciting. It's the hardest of the sonic games I've played. I think it's very cool that you can control three characters at once. Read morePublished on April 8 2004
Let me boil it down, basically, the whole game is composed of platforms suspended in mid air, so your biggest enemy isn't Eggman, nor Metal Sonic, it's the fall to your doom. Read morePublished on April 2 2004 by Savage
