    It's a grand maze without dead-ends. [March 2005, p.84]
  2. The action is bewildering and frenetic, the challenge is minimal and the usual camera problems persist, but this is still an exuberantly entertaining game.
  3. Play Magazine
    75
    Essentially an Xbox port with improved graphics. [Jan 2005, p.78]
  4. A step in the right direction, adding a nice teamwork element to the game. However, it is ultimately mediocre at best, given its fair share of problems, including bad camera issues and overly simplistic gameplay.
  5. 70
    The only way that the game stands apart on the PC is the higher resolution for graphics. A gamepad is a necessity for the full experience but the presentation of the game suffers somewhat due to the complete lack of an instruction manual.
  6. PC Gamer
    50
    A poor man's take on the franchise's 16-bit salad days. [March 2005, p.72]
  7. PC Format
    39
    Ridiculously fast, under-developed and frustrating to control. [Christmas 2004, p.119]

    WHY must I give a number?
    Anyway, I found Sonic Heroes to be a very enjoyable time, though without a doubt an oddball. That's what this game's description should be. However, I think people need to dial back on the game a bit. The story was great, the level design and control amazing, graphics and music sweet, really, it's the camera and f*cked up combat that drags this game below it's untouchable predecessors.

    As a kid this was my favourite game but now i kinda hate it
    It's very frustrating and the controls are slippery as hell
    The levels tend to last too long and the ones that are fun are short
    Collecting the chaos emeralds is very annoying so you'll probably give up on it
    The ost is amazing and the CGI cutscenes are very fun to watch
    if you have patience go ahead beat the game but if not dont even bother

The game is also too slow, i took almost a life trying to do it and finally a discovered that there is no spin dash! And to top it all the freak camera also make it even more difficult to eliminate the enemies. Expand
