Shadow the Hedgehog, a dark and mysterious character is struggling
to discover his true identity. The story follows a complex
battle between aliens, Dr. Eggman and the G.U.N. Army. Players
control Shadow's destiny, ultimately deciding if he becomes
a hero or a villain. Multiple endings reflect critical decisions
at every stage of the game...
dear. Oh dear. Did anyone actually test this game before it
was released onto an unsuspecting public? I doubt it. Shadow
the Hedgehog has to be about the most rushed game I've
ever had the misfortune to play.
theory it sounds like a great idea. You have the opportunity
to change the destiny of Shadow, so that he can either be
good or bad. And, as you progress through the game, doing
good or bad deeds, the storyline alters. Unfortunately the
gameplay is so painful, that I doubt anyone other than the
most religious Sonic fan will actually be able to play
this for more than a couple of hours without wanting to take
it back to the shop and demand their money back.
never been a fan of the 3D Sonic games. Sonic the
Hedgehog seems to only really work as a 2D platform game.
Shadow the Hedgehog adds strength to this argument.
It looks messy, it's clumsily designed and no one actually
thought to add any serious gameplay.
Shadow, you run around collecting rings and picking up weapons
to dispatch your enemies. The main problem with this is that
it's incredibly difficult to dispatch an enemy without spilling
your rings everywhere. When you do manage to pick up a weapon,
it's difficult to shoot at your desired target and you could
spend some time shooting the wrong side by mistake. To be
honest, the whole gun idea was a bad move.
looks hideous, it handles like a pig, and is so boring that
I doubt anyone will ever finish it. Please
don't waste your money on this game without trying it first.
You might think it's the best game of the Sonic franchise
to date... somehow I doubt it.
