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

The boards are not the most exciting part of the game but they do have spaces you can land on to fight a monster who ever gets the highest card wins. The best part by far though is the minigames which well you will have to find that out for yourself. One last thing to mention is the Sonic room where you can buy Furniture which is used to play the BGM, play minigames and many over things, and the picture book where you can buy pictures of the players, storyline moments and others.
Sonic Shuffle brought something to the party genre that I am shocked Mario Party STILL hasn't tried (as far as I know.) That something was Mini Events, which are like excerpts from those multiple choice adventure books, and they can have very positive outcomes on your game, or they can turn your good fortune upside down.
The Mini Games are pretty good too, and they can offer big ring collecting opportunities. Other than them, there are also stage specific mini games which the game calls "Accidents." Accidents seem to happen completely at random other than the stage clear special accidents at the end of every game. The Force-Jewels also added a unique flavour to the gameplay, by allowing the player to cast special effects on the game such as cursing one of their opponents for a number of turns or swapping places with them. The Precious Stones (Stars to those who know their Mario Parties) could even be stolen by landing on Void's spaces.
Sonic Shuffle had LOADS of things that Mario Party didn't, including a storyline! (Not necessarily the best one but it's better than a gigantic cube appearing out of nowhere.) This does come as a surprise bearing in mind that planning party games can be pretty damn hard.Read more ›
