this is a good game because shadow can have some cool guns and he can ride on cars and you can fight some one on 2 player mode and you have to go place to place and fight some aliens and thats why i think this is a good game.

by raulshadow13 one the best sonic games ever
ok when i first got this game i expected that it would be just like one of those regular old sonic games were u have to get to the goal ring but boy was i wrong in this game u get to use guns and weapons such as lasers guns poles and sticks. but first of all lets star with the storyline baciscally (spoiler alert) aliens the eggmans grandpa made a deal with 50 years prior to the events of sonic adventure 2 battle and he promised the aliens the chaos emerald in 50 years if he helped him with project shadow . and it has been 50 years and devil doom has come and he wants the chaos emeralds so he tells shadow to gather them and he will give shadow his memory back so thats how he gets involved in this game . know that you no the story line we shall talk about the graphics thats the thing that could have been improved in this game its that the aliens look defromed and shadow looks like he just came out the shower all wet and stuff they could have made the graphics like for the ones sonic unleashed .now second of all the weopens in this game are very great there is no more to say about it . now the moves shadow has are great especialy the chaos blast and chaos control the chaos blast makes shadow do a giant explosion that destoryes and kills everything in site but the chaos control make shadow just warp through most of the stage . now the 2 player is great but my only complaint is that its gets old to easyly . thats my review of shadow the hedgehog now good bye my fingers hurt from typing

Rated 6 out of 10 by lil_lankanking The game wasnt bad it was alright
50 years ago, deep in a Military Research Space Station, Prof. Gerald Robotnik forged an experiment known as "Project Shadow" while trying to unlock the secrets of eternal life at the request of the Government. The experiment culminated in "The Ultimate Life-Form"; Shadow the Hedgehog, a hedgehog with the ability to harness the mysterious power of the Chaos Emeralds in ways not thought possible. After being thought dead in Sonic Adventure 2, Shadow returned in Sonic Heroes with amnesia, a condition which still exists in this game. In the beginning of the game, Shadow is still without any clue about his past, his only two memories are of his attempt to escape the ARK with Maria, and his name. He does not understand who he is or where he's from, but he's determined to find out, be it from Black Doom, the leader of an alien race who claims he and Shadow made a pact involving the Chaos Emeralds; G.U.N., the militaries that murdered Maria; or Dr. Eggman, the evil scientist.

Rated 10 out of 10 by the young critics of sonic 9.5 out of 10!
I love the game because of the best storyline ever made!!!!!!! The game has great graphics for a game with all the explosions. The camera is sometimes annoying on elevators but altogether I'm very satsisfied with the game. It contains the ability for you to be shadow and pick what he does, therefore changing the storyline to however you choose to go. The game also contains an awesome 2-play battle mode where all you do is battle another shadow. Because of the caos power this game truly is part of the sonic catagory. The game however was way underrated and should have been rated T. The violence is heavier than fantasy violence and the language is stronger then mild language. Besides that I love the game. The game also consist of missions and vehicles making it go over the top. Altogether I find very little to change in the game. I personly love the game and would recommend this to any gaming player.
Rated 1 out of 10 by JapanFan This game is perfect for nobody.
Without a doubt, the worst game I've ever played. This Sega's attempt to give Shadow a decent story, but they failed miserably. It was a game where you could choose Shadow to be a hero, a villain, or neutral. But Sega presents that concept to you in a terrible way. A good way would be to ask you at the start of level, then you'd have one objective. Instead, About a quarter way through the level, Another hero character will appear asking you to "help" them (AKA, do everything for them) with their task. Then another quarter into the level an evil floating starfish thing asks you to do what it wants. Depending on what person you want to help determines what path Shadows. Just going straight to the ends results in a neutral path. Sounds like a good setup, but the NPCs constantly ask why you aren't doing what they told you. The plot also pretty lame on the neutral path. Also, Shadow constantly curses. Not that I've got a problem with cursing, I hear everyday, but every time you take damage, die, or lose all your lives is just pointless. Believe me, I could on, but I think you've gotten my point by now.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Fright Guy A pretty good game
I'm not a huge fan of Sonic but I gave this one a shot. It was a great game. For the opening scene I was impressed by the graphics. But once it got into game I wasn't so impressed. Shadow looked shiny like someone had just polished him. Also, I think they made Shadow a little too short. Either that or the guns too big because some of the guns were as tall as him. Now, I think the storyline was great and some levels you can get by in 5-7 minutes tops and there were some that take awhile. For each destiny you can go in it's six levels. When you have to do all of them though it takes awhile. But, also what I don't like is Shadow just seems to teleport to each level not explaining how he get's there. In one destiny he is in a huge aircraft carrier and he decides to find Dr. Eggman. Well, at the end of the cutscene he starts running in the aircraft and then once it ends and the level begins...your at Eggman's base and it's like' "Wasn't he just in an aircraft?" All in all it's a pretty good game. But, I sugggest it for 10-13 year olds not little kids cause it's not as good for kids like other Sonic games.
Rated 9 out of 10 by metaridley a very good gem not to be missed
Shadow the hedgehog is a sequel to sonic adventure 2 and its very good considering that it has one character but it introduces new play mechanics such as vehichles guns and the ability to change the ending by moral choices which i like there are different ones one where you help sonic one for helping black doom and one for helping the military it is ultimately a great oppurtunity for replay value and has a very deep story line.I know this game was not received well because it featured guns swearing and a much darker tone i think the guns are cool but i don't see the need adding swearing to the sonic games over all a great game any sonic fan will enjoy. note* there is know blood in the game on occasion green goop drips from aliens and the swearing is kept to a minimal but its a little dark.this game is not for kids 8 and younger.
Rated 10 out of 10 by 90guy excellent game
When i was younger my friend showed me this game and i wanted it just then. lately i've been looking for a game that changes depending on how you play, while i was browsing reviews and flash games i remembered this game. Throughout the game you can choose sides or my favorite way is to rush through a level going down what ever path it leads. the different levels are arranged in a peramid some with 2 branches some with 3 giving the game excellent replay value the cut scene library is hilarious me and my friend spent hours making fun of them some are awesome some are stupid some you think what the heck is wrong with him. the different story lines will piece something together then you will find something impossible leaving you to decide the real one. If you want to know the true story see the recommended game.
