4.0 out of 5 stars The Dark World Of Sonic, 13 May 2006
Shadow the Hedgehog stars the mysterious character from Sonic Adventure 2, namely Shadow the Hedgehog.
Shadow is trying to find out about his past, when he gets caught in the middle of a fight between Black Arms (an alien army) and G.U.N (Earth's military). Throughout the game, you can make choices to decide which side you want to join up with, or you can just ignore it all. You'll learn different things about Shadow's past depending on what path you take.

A path through this game is six stages long followed by a final boss fight. There is, however, a grand total of 326 different paths you can take in the game, over 20 huge levels to explore, and 10 different endings to see. You can re-play the levels you have finnished in the Library menu in the game, and see wich paths you have taken.

Something new in this game is the option to use guns. I say option, because for the most part, you don't have to use guns to complete the game. If you prefer, you can just use the Homing Attack on an enemy instead, but compared to some of the weapons this is a very weak attack.

Something else since Sonic Heroes is the Hero and Dark bars at the top of the screen. Whenever you do something good (killing an alien, healing a soldier), a little bit of the Hero bar is filled, and whenever you do something bad (killing a soldier, blowing stuff up), a little bit of the Dark bar is filled. When either of these bars are filled, you become Hero or Dark Shadow, respectively. As Hero/Dark Shadow, you are invincible, have unlimited ammo, and can use a special move depending which bar is filled. Chaos Control (Hero) warps you through the stage super fast(but you can skip some important stuff), and Chaos Blast (Dark) destroys or deals heavy damage to everything near Shadow.
(When you have been given the Dark & Hero missions in a level, press the start button to decide which character you will follow on that level.)

I think the game has gotten too bad reviews from both the press, and gamers that didnt give this a chance to grow on them.
Shadow The Hedgehog may have the bottomless pits, and the crazy camera from Heroes. But its great path system gives you a totally new experience everytime you finnish it, and the levels is different whenever you feel evil or good...-or just dont care.
I love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rare Sonic!, 11 Nov. 2005
Sonic is back on the PS2 with a new collection, with 3 rare classics.
With this collection you can play the cult arcade classic, Sonic The Fighters (first time on a console). This cartoon fighting-game really shines on the multi-player, but can be a bit boring on your own.

Sonic R on the other hand is an fantastic racing-game. Both the multi-player and single-player is exellent. Look for secrets, play time-trial, and unlock hidden characters. This is based on the PC-edition (not the Saturn-edition), so it has sharper graphics and features different weather-effects when you play. You will love this!
The last 'gem' on this collection is the mighty Sonic CD.
This is why you should buy this collection. Fantastic graphics, exellent 'tecno'-soundtrack, and great gameplay, makes this the ultimate Sonic-adventure for many fans.
I really love this because its so very playable, and different everytime you play it thru.
This is also based on the pc-edition (not the MegaCD-edition), so it has sharper graphics, and the opening/ending movies run perfectly without any mess.
The collection also features a lot of Game Gear classic (7).
Some of the games can be fun to try out, but most of them is just to 'fill up the collection'.
It also features Vectorman 1 & 2 as a bonus. Like the mentioned Street of Rage (that features as a bonus on the Japanese-edition of SGC), it has absolutely nothing to do with the world of Sonic(!)
Why those two titles are included in the collection is a mystery. But of the two titles, Vectorman is at least a ok platform-game...
This collection is really a GEM for any blue Sonic-fan,
but for anyone else maybe Sonic Mega Collection will be a better blast?
Thats why I have given it only 4 stars.
But blue as I am, I absolutely love it!
