I am and avid Sonic fan. Ever since I was 3 I've been hooked on Sonic. Sonic R was my first game, after all. That being said one of my favorite characters in all of fiction is Shadow the Hedgehog. So, you can imagine my surprise when I found out he had his very own game. Now I'm going into this review without any bias. I'm not excusing anything just because it's Sonic. So without further ado, let's begin the review.
Gameplay: Have you played Sonic Adventure 2, or Heroes? If so you'll be glad to know that the gameplay is the same. For those of you who don't know Shadow can run, wall jump, and do a homing attack. There is something else added though. "What is it", I hear you ask. Well, I'll tell you. It's guns and vehicles. Now before you attack the game for having these game mechanics, they're optional and are not mandatory to use. The other gameplay mechanic is choosing to follow the good, evil or neutral path in order to progress the story, revealing different parts of Shadow's past. Overall the gameplay is pretty solid and follows the Sonic formula to a T. 4.5/5
