Based on the idea of strategically running around a board collecting precious stones, Sonic Shuffle
might be a bit hard going on those looking for the action-packed high thrill rides that we've come to expect from our little blue friend.
Needless to say though, with almost 50 mini-games packed in, and the chance to play Sonic, Tails, Amy and Knuckles, those looking for a more sedate Sonic might just enjoy this title. Couple this with five huge gaming boards and you've got a game that offers cute graphics with a loveable character.
As you would expect from the Dreamcast, the game offers up to four players the chance to play at once in the versus mode or, if you happen to be home alone, then you could just carve your way through the story-based levels, tackling the computer and the mini-games as you go. Great thinking fun rather than high-speed thrills.--Frances Barber
