Legendary mascot Sonic the Hedgehog makes his historic
multi-platform debut. Sonic and his friends have evolved,
adopting a configuration feature that lets gamers control
three playable characters simultaneously: Sonic's speed, Knuckles'
power and Tails' ability to fly can now be used to conquer
Heroes allows you to take control of Team Sonic (made
up of Sonic, Tales and Knuckles) or any one of a number of
other teams comprised of three characters - each with the
special ability of speed, power of flight. There are a total
of 12 characters that make up Team
Sonic, Team Dark, Team Rose and Team Chaotix, each with their
own signature moves and story line.
Sonic the Hedgehog. He was to the Megadrive what the Mario
Brothers were to the SNES, or to a lesser extent what Lara
Croft was to the Playstation. However, this is an abject lesson
on why we should let memories of the past remain as such.
Sonic was a fantastic character on the Megadrive, but this
new offering tries to be too many things and ends up looking
a little too messy.
Heroes seems half finished. The camera seems to have a
mind of its own. And changing between normal camera and your
character's point of view camera doesn't help matters.
don't know about you, but when I spend £40 for a game
I don't want to spend half my time wondering why my character
has just run off a cliff for no reason, or why I seem to have
no control over the gameplay as my character seems to bounce
around for ages with a mind of its own.
also strongly advised to start of on the tutorial mode instead
of trying to head straight for the main gaming area. There
are plenty of little bits of information here you'll need
in order to complete the levels successfully.
you get into the gameplay, it soon becomes apparent that there
isn't much to this game. The levels all look pretty similar
and the graphics are not a patch on similar games.
are much better games of a similar vein out there - take Ratchet
and Clank for starters. But, if you really want to relive
those glory days when Sonic was king, buy a Megadrive on e-Bay
and play the original game. It'll be cheaper and more fun
than this offering.
little disappointing considering what this could have been.
