  1. Computer Games Magazine

    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]

The truth is that this general score seems unfair to me, a great game with an essence that marked the entire saga. Expand

    Good game actually. Its colorful, cute and frustrating in a good way. Story was cute and the Voice acting sucked. Each team is cooperative,Good game actually. Its colorful, cute and frustrating in a good way. Story was cute and the Voice acting sucked. Each team is cooperative, different and easy to use. Graphics were ahead of its time but the speed couldve been more at all times. Level design was great but you really, REALLY wouldnt want to play this game on the PC, a gamepad is nescessary to enjoy it overall. If I had played the console version, I would probably give it an 8. Expand

I do not understand the cult of this game. Why do many love her? In my opinion, the game is bad, although not as much as Adventure 2 or Forces. Why such an opinion? Gameplay, plot, characters, camera, as usual, control, some locations, especially this Casino, how much I hate this level. All this sucks very much.
    Although this game has good graphics, most levels pleased me, the soundtrack is good, Neo Metal Sonic looks cool. It's good that they returned the team to Chaotix, Metal Sonic himself. Homing Attack is much better than SA2. But, alas, significant disadvantages do not allow me to call this game a good one, although it’s not so bad.
    My rating: 5.6 out of 10.

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
