I thought this was a pretty decent game. However, I don't really like the multiple story lines that you have to complete in order to actually complete the entire game. It is a little much to do.

Not to mention that in order to get all of the stories, you have to play the game multiple times afterwards and you pretty much get bored with it after playing it over 5 times.

Now that was stupid of me, I posted this before I had even played the game (I guess I really enjoy a lot of games that I think I'm gonna enjoy them before I olay them). Well I bought a pre owned copy about 2/3 years ago, can't remember exactly because I have a lot of stuff, I haven't got through some of my games. An example would be Rayman Origins that I got back in 2011, yeah that's pretty bad.

Anyway, I thought the idea of having different story lines was stupid. I only completed one story & then decided, nah not continuing. It wasn't even that good an ending. Well the writing for Sonic games has never been that good but I have seen better from them compared to this. None of the levels I completed are memorable, the weapons are nothing special, Shadow goes a bit too fast at times & the story itself was pure boring. I think I agree with that comment posted by Mrguy22594.

I will however, give credit to the 4Kids cast since the voice acting was decent. That's the probably the only good thing about this game (in my opinion that is).

This comment will most likely offend many people and get removed but this game, along with Sonic 06 suck.

@Mrguy22594 Shadow, I can see where you're coming from. While I personally don't mind this game, my enjoyment is half sentimental value from how I used to love it as a kid, and half revelling in the amount of cheese and tryhard-edginess. Actually, I think it's mostly the cheese. So to me, this is one of those games that I'd call "so bad it's good"; the bad and lame qualities make it that much more enjoyable.

Sonic 2006, nobody should argue with that. It's by far one of the worst games ever made.

@NCZ This game and Sonic 06 made me hate the 4kids acting because it always sounded way too forced. None of the "actors" felt any enthusiasm when they acted in this game and 06 also everything in shadow feels slippery, mission objectives instead of simply beating the level like kill all enemies or find stupid mcguffins. The story in this game is almost as atrocious as Sonic 06, almost. Even though Sonic Adventure 2 is one of the best games I've ever played it still made the designers think that this was a good idea. If the fan reviews are active any time soon this will be my first review.

When this game was first announced, I thought it was an April Fool's joke. I rented this game a few weeks after it's release, and I never picked it up again. I thought the controls were terrible, especially when Shadow ran fast. The guns didn't left an impression on me, and I didn't bother with the vehicles. I also didn't like how you were suppose to get 10 different endings to get the last story, and then find out the rest of the endings weren't cannon. But what I didn't understand, and this is the worst of all in my opinion, why they needed to make a dark, apocalyptic, serious story about a cartoon hedgehog. And it didn't make sense to me that an evil immortal alien is Shadow's biological father, who is a hedgehog. And as a fan of the character I hate what they did to him in this game, I'm sorry but I just hate what they did to Shadow. I know he is the anti-hero who is suppose to be badass, but he was fine in Adventure 2; he was already a badass anti-hero in his own right without the need to swear, or use guns, that's why he was so popular when he died and people wanted him back. All in all, Shadow the Hedgehog just left a bad taste in my mouth, and I hope they don't approach to the dark apocalyptic idea again.

The first time I played this game I made up different combinations and wanted to see the outcome of Shadow's future. Some of them made me say, "Holy crud! Did he kill Eggman?" or I said, "How the heck did that happen?" Sometimes when I was playing through each level of the game I was often confused because at one level he has no idea what the ARK was and the next level he knows all about it! Hmmm...maybe Shadow is psychic or something... (Laugh) Oh well, the graphics for the CG cutscenes were pretty detailed for a game made in 2005, but the gameplay graphics could've been a little more detailed (but that really depends on what kind of software they are using to create the game with) and maybe they could have put more weapons and tactics in the 2P mode! I was pretty much hooked on this game for about six months when I bought it, but then I bought Secret Rings when it came out.

Anyway, I still think this game was overall OK, despite some the conflicting story lines and somewhat poor graphics. It totally shows how violent and how independent that short, black hedgehog can be...with or without a gun!

I always sticked to the Hero Side whenever I played this game.
But I enjoyed playing it though. ^_^

I played either all the way evil all the way good or all the way neutral... but in any case this game was OK sometimes.

I agree I liked the game too...It's not that Sonic games have been bad these past years it's just that some needed more improvment and transformation in order to make it better I liked Shadow because it had a different variety of elements I'll admit there's a bit too much Replay value in order to maintain the final story, some veichles needed to be in other enviroments (Levels) despite those things I liked this game and it does bring back memories I like the change in levels and the story and I liked the voice acting too so I'm with you too NCZ :D

This game is so nostalgic. I played it practically every day when it came out. That continued for a little over a year. I will admit it has flaws (slightly dated graphics even for 2005, not enough motorcycle action, it's hard to take the game seriously when you're a metre-tall hedgehog), but I still think it's a cool game.
