Sonic Heroes (GC)

  • Excerpt: I am a Sonic fanboy. That little fact needs to be put out there right away because, though I\'ll try to be unbiased in this review, the history I\'ve had with the star of Sonic Heroes must be addressed. The first game consol my parents ever bought me was a SEGA Genesis, and the first game was Sonic the Hedgehog. That game blew my five-year-old mind and it still holds up today (along with it\'s 2D sequels) as one of the best side-scrolling platform games in history.

  • Excerpt: continues this trend of what seems to be “quality without passion.” Sonic Team’s first original, not-a-remake-or-director’s-cut 3D

  • Summary: Sorry little Timmy, but your pet hedgehog needs to take a one-way trip to the vet.
  • Pros: Great visuals and framerate, Plenty of stuff to do (four teams, extra missions, multiplayer), Switching team members is quick and simple
  • Cons: Brain-melting voiceovers repeat themselves constantly, Teams are all the same, The controls are laughing at you, Uncooperative camera

Sonic Heroes (Gamecube) Review

Vooks
6 February 2004
  • Excerpt: Now if ever there was a game with pressure to perform it’s Sonic Heroes. Sonic has fallen behind previous archrival Mario in recent years and Sonic Team has promised to get the series back on track. We’ve already seen the ports of the Sonic Adventure series on the GameCube and have come to the strife conclusion that 1) Sonic just doesn’t work in 3D, and 2) Hunting for treasure is stupid when you’d rather be out running fast.

  • Excerpt: Sonic the Hedgehog has been a mainstay of the entertainment industry almost as long as Mario. Yet Sega's mascot has not successfully transitioned to as many genres as Nintendo's plumber, with mediocre racing and party games to his name. Whereas Mario's leap to 3D essentially defined what a 3D platform game should be, Sonic's adventures on the Sega Dreamcast were less inspired, thanks in part to the hedgehog sharing the spotlight with several playable castmates.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Sega has made sure that the latest instalment of its greatest intellectual property of all does not disappoint. Fans will almost certainly love it and newcomers can't fail to adore it. This is a full power Sonic game with everything you expect it to have, and despite its shortcomings, delivers that spiky blue love by the bucketload. Toot, toot, Sonic Mofo Warrior!

Sonic Heroes

The Next Level
26 January 2004
  • Excerpt: Sonic Heroes has arrived, and now for diehard Sonic fans a question must be posed. This won't be an easy thing to do, since if you're a longtime fan of the series you've been under the "Fell for It" category since way back in the Blast Processing days.
