Sonic Heroes

XboxAddict.com
2 November 2006
  • Excerpt: After a lifetime as the flagship character of his own slew of systems our favorite little blue rodent from video games past is now on Xbox. Sonic makes his Xbox debut with Sonic Heroes, Segas latest installment to the Sonic license. So does Sonic show any signs of aging, or slowing down for that matter? Will Sonic be welcome on his new black and green home? Or is it going to be another case of a "Retro" game charecter on his last leg?

Sonic Heroes – Review

  • Excerpt: Let me start by sharing a secret. Lean closer so I can whisper it. That's right; there are times when we lose our sense of direction in the game of life. This might be short-term dissatisfaction stemming from a work-related incident, or a broader setback caused by failure of a personal relationship. Our internal compass stops and we can't decide what goals deserve attention as we try to make sense of unexpected change.

Sonic Heroes

Playstation Illustrated
22 May 2005
  • Excerpt: The Sonic legacy began as a series of 2D platformers on the Genesis. Once the series moved into 3D, it took a decidedly different turn in terms of gameplay with more emphasis on adventure elements, though still containing some of the classic 'speed' action of the original. Sonic Heroes is an attempt at a total return to the classic style of gameplay.

  • Excerpt: Any fan of the Sonic the Hedgehog series will tell you that the key element of the entire franchise has been the speed of the gameplay. Heck, during the 16-bit console wars Sega even invented a term called "Blast Processing" that they claimed gave the blue blur his speed. Unfortunately, with Sonic's arrival into the 3-D realm, that speed wasn't anywhere to be seen.

  • 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!

  • Conclusion: The occasional bouts of slowdown that the Xbox version suffers from are forgivable, but Sonic Team almost seems to be daring you to try to have fun with the PlayStation 2 version by making it significantly uglier, slower, and generally just rougher around the edges than the other two versions. Nevertheless, Sonic Heroes is the closest that Sonic Team has gotten to doing a 3D Sonic the Hedgehog game in the classic 2D fashion.

  • Conclusion: Overall, Sonic Heroes is not your average Sonic game. Gameplay is a lot different, visuals are a lot better, and replay is more than just running through the levels again. As said before, people will either hate this game or they will love it. Renting this title first would be a very wise decision. This game really does deserve a try. Who knows, you may end up loving every minute of it.
