    With a lot of creativity, Sonic Team has taken the boardgame to the digital age, and made a fun, sometimes frustrating board game that is a lot more than throwing some dice and moving around a rectangle.

    If you intend on playing by yourself, don't expect to win anytime soon. The computer players are cheap, if not downright nasty.
  3. There are so many rules, combos, mini-games and quests that it's easy to get more than a little confused. But the essence of the game is fun, and all of the variation leaves tons of room for competition.

    With frustrating gameplay and painful load times, this game just not fun.
  5. Most players will feel disappointed by Sonic Shuffle, especially if they expect a game of the same quality as other Sonic ones. Overall, Sonic Shuffle isn't awful, but the Dreamcast's library offers plenty of better choices.

    With the exception of the graphics, Sonic Shuffle does everything wrong. Don't be fooled by the visuals. Even fans of Sonic (and I'm one of them) will be extremely disappointed.
  7. Load times and boring mini-games will have this one appearing in the used game bin faster than you can say "ugh." It's my duty as a human being to warn all against even thinking about buying this game.

    Well I think this game is not that bad at all it just needs so more mini games where you actually win more force jewels and ring combos. The Well I think this game is not that bad at all it just needs so more mini games where you actually win more force jewels and ring combos. The music especially the introduction music is excellent without no doubt it is really cool. Sonic Room the picture prices could have been a little lower but otherwise thats not such a bad idea either. Peace Out. Expand

    This game aint as bad as most people say, the music can get annoying and can get cool, the graphics aren't to great but I don't This game aint as bad as most people say, the music can get annoying and can get cool, the graphics aren't to great but I don't really value that. If you liked "Mario Party" you should try this out and by the way, the loading times aren't as long as people say. Expand

    This game despite being a clone of Mario Party is not half bad even though the "critics" say otherwise.

    This game might be based on Mario
    This game despite being a clone of Mario Party is not half bad even though the "critics" say otherwise.

    This game might be based on Mario Party, but it uses a different system whilst Mario Party is purely based on luck. Sonic Shuffle uses cards, at first they are hidden, but when they become visible it makes this luck based game more strategy based.

    And the other good thing this game does is the music. Sonic Shuffle has a better ost than Mario Party.

    In the other hand it has the same lackluster as the very first Mario Party, only 4 characters playable: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose. It has also a very few stages, sadly.

    I'm indifferent ragarding the graphics, I have seen better, but it's not ugly either.

    Honestly, it's really far from being that bad.

    The game is not BAD, per se. Reviewers acclaim the graphics while dissing the game, but it should really be the other way around. The The game is not BAD, per se. Reviewers acclaim the graphics while dissing the game, but it should really be the other way around. The graphics are the SUCK. Overall, though, the game is fun. Mini games include shooting each other in tanks, passing bombs back and forth, jumping rope over a pit of doom, various random things, and about a billion different versions of tag. Playing against the computer is a mule, to say the least, but that makes it horribly amusing when you dominate them and get to the climactic (and only) boss battle in the game against Void. Multiplayer can be a lot of fun, with a little practice and no computer players. Unless you get paired up with someone with decent skill, the computer will OWN you. Get four players. For your own bloody good, get four players, lest you die a horrible and unspeakable death. Never pair up with a n00b against the computer. You WILL wind up playing with them against the computer in any 2-on-2 games. And you WILL lose if any cooperation is involved. Practice your partner. Game is fun. Computer is mean. Kill them, and you will be happy. Expand

    I CAN'T BELIEVE ALL THE FANBOYS DEFENDING THIS MEDIOCRE GAME!

    El juego no tiene inspiración, es una mala copia de Mario Party y bueno sobre los gráficos son los mismos de Sonic Adventure de Dreamcast con shaders cartoon agregados, es lento, pocos minijuegos. Sean honestos gente, es un pésimo juego y ya, no digan que es lo mejor nadamás porque le tengan lástima a la poca cantidad de juegos de Dreamcast, no te mientas ti mismo diciendo que es lo "mejor" por tener a Sonic.

    En si le doy cero por la cantidad de fanboys que defienden esto.
