Conclusion: Sonic Shuffle isn't as good as some of the past sonic games (probably because they were so impressive), and with Sonic Adventure 2 coming out later this year, Sonic Shuffle will become over shaddowed, but it's still well worth buying - even if it's only so you can walk about for the next week...

Summary: Wahrscheinlich würde
weltweit als innovatives und spaßiges Multiplayergame gefeiert werden, wenn nicht bereits die Maskottchen von Nintendo und Sony gezeigt hätten, dass man die Grundidee wesentlich besser umsetzen kann.
