WHAT GOES UP, MUST COME DOWN BLA BLA BLA, BA BLA BLA BLA, Nah nah nah, nah nah nah SONIC HEROES!!! SONIC HEROES!!!
I think the game successfully completed the process of recreating everything 2D into 3D, how successful it was is a matter of opinion.
Sonic Adventure introduced 3D.
In my opinion Sonic Adventure 2 perfected it and also integrated all of Sonic's abilities (Water = Bounce, Fire = Charge Attack, Electricity = Magnetic Powers) into the core gameplay as well as adding tons of new gameplay stuff.
Sonic Heroes tried to integrate anything that was left... from the Special Stages to 32x's Knuckles Chaotix style tag team game play.
The level designs should make fans happy as well as the game features:
- Unique Gimmicks and enemies per stage.
- Tons of Alternate Pathways - the higher you get the faster you beat the stage.
- Special Stages (though they should've been 2D this time around cause when the games were 2D, they were 3D).
I don't like Heroes mainly cause I am a bigger fan of the Dark Dreamcast Era rather than the classical era.
That said. I'm not really a fan of it.
Sure, I was a fan of the MegaDrive games but I consider myself a bigger fan of the Dreamcast era. I love the GREEN EYES ROEL
I like my Sonic games to have humans, I never consider Sonic an animal in the first place.
I could go on but I'll just sum it up by saying Sonic Adventure 2 = Best Sonic game of all time imo.
Unfortunately, this game is running on a 3rd Party engine, rather than the kick ass Yuji Naka coded Adventure 2 engine therefore the physics and gameplay isn't as good.
Lastly, this game had the worst timing oddly sandwiched between Sonic Adventure 2 & Shadow, both games being Dark and all about the story mode where as this game is all about the gameplay.
I really haven't proof read this.
It is definitively better than Colors/Unleashed though.
