Rated 7 out of 10 by Sonic_Frantic_Fanatic A bit of both
Sonic Heros is a good game. I liked how you can choose from four different teams, and how they'll each go on different levels, and have different story lines. But somewhere in the game, the teams will meet, and the story lines will clash. I thought that was cool. The voices and acting were good I guess. I found a few mistakes though. The graphics are about average. I thought it was kinda lame though how each team had three different character specialties such as fly, power, and speed. And especially how the flying players couldn't be alone. Like if you switched to Cream on team rose, then she would fly with all the other characters. I would have liked to play just cream alone. Although I guess it would be a necessity to get the other players around. I didn't think the game genre was very unique. Mostly the same as every other sonic game out there. Racing and sliding on rails. I would like to see a good adventure game (With Tikal in it XD). I guess I give this game a 6.5/10.
Rated 1 out of 10 by rockstar321 guaranteed to NOT work.
I bought this game from a gamestop in chantily VA, yesterday. and when I finaly put it in my ps2 last night, it did not work. I tried it again and it did not work. and my ps2 made a bunch of noises. I tried it again this morning today on christmas, and surprize it did not work. then I looked on the back of the disc and there were cracks everywere. and gamestop said on their website "this pre owned product is guaranteed to work". I want my money back gamestop. also remeber never buy used or pre owned items because someone is giving it away because something is wrong with it, so they do not want it anymore, it's not like someone would just give a game away for no reason, so what they do is they try to make some quick money by giving what doesent work to gamestop to sell. dear gamestop. TEST YOUR USED ITEMS BETTER.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Director95 AWESOME. EXCELLENT. PURE SONIC.
I have currently played this game so many times. I have played and bought this game on the XBOX, Playstation 2 and GameCube. Obviously neither version has disappointed me. With over 100 emblems to collect and A ratings for almost 50 levels, you have TONS and TONS of things to complete. The music composition is a great touch to the game. Along with the lush environments and new 'fresh' areas. My favorite part about the game has got to be the BOSSES. I would usually play them over and over again. They were loads of fun! The only downside to this game were the graphics, awkward camera angles (which aren't a serious issue at all) and the fast movement of the characters. Anyway, if you are looking at this review or thinking or hesitating to buy this game, make up your mind by buying it. You will NOT be disappointed!
Rated 10 out of 10 by bobby2643 An amazing and unique sonic game!
This game is a new type of game and has worked successfully. The graphics are not too bad, and are sometimes really good, like in the intro. The game play is nice. Stick with the "speed" formation for effectiveness, "fly" for flights and stuns, and power for instant kill. I think the bosses were too easy, but aside from that, it was not bad. There are four teams, Dark, Sonic, Rose, and Chaotix. Dark has Shadow, Rouge, and Omega. Sonic has Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles. Rose has Amy, Cream, and Big. Chaotix has Charmy, Espio, and Vector. Each team has different difficulty and Chaotix has special missions. The Sound is nice, but voice acting and script was not very good. It has a nice replay value because you need all the emeralds for a special level. Shadow the Hedgehog is good too, but severely underrated.
Rated 9 out of 10 by GInganxGamer Fun and Unique
One of my first games for the PS2. I played this game even when I didn't have a memory card! The controls are a bit confusing at first but you get the hang of it after a bit.
The game goes like this:
Each Team has a member of every ability.
Sonic - Speed
Knuckles - Power
Tails - Fly
There are 4 different teams.
Amy - Speed
Big - Power
Cream - Fly
Shadow - Speed
Omega - Power
Rouge - Fly
Sonic - Speed
Knuckles - Power
Tails - Fly
and Team Chaotix
Espio - Speed
Vector - Power
Charmy - Fly
Team Rose is easiest, Team Dark is in the middle, Team Sonic is hardest and Team Chaotix is mission-based.
Overall, I love this game. I reccomend this to any Sonic fan. :)
Rated 10 out of 10 by SuperSonicGamer1 One of sonic's best games!
Sonic Heroes is one of the best games I've ever played! This game was the first I've heard of sonic due to the fact that I wasn't around when the Sega Genesis time. I like playing as three people at once. I like the final boss too. There's a trick that you can do to instantly win that boss. On Metal Overlord, constantly press square until your team blast meter fills. Do this 5 times. I also like the Multiplayer. Battle, Special Stage, Action Race, Short Race, Long Race, And more!
Ever since this game broke on me, I've missed playing the awesome glory it gives you. Take care of this game. You don't wanna miss it!
Rated 7 out of 10 by bobbyjr Not a bad game
This game really brings out Sonic & friends to a whole new area, but it really needs some more excitement in it. It is a game for kids. I mean really, don't go buying a game that you don't like. With an E rating, you can tell already that it won't have much action/violents in it. But Sonic games never disapointed fans before.( Back all the when Sonic came out on the Sega Genisis, it's still good for all these years). With 4 teams (12 characters (3 characters per team) in all) SONIC HEROES is a pretty good game.

Sonic Heroes is my favorite game of all time. The game's graphical style screams sega genesis, and is how a sonic game should look in the 3D world. The music is also a joy to listen to. Egg fleet, yes please! The gameplay is the most unique style I've seen in my 10 years of gaming. The team- based gameplay can lead to many different ways of reaching the goal. This is a game that has a huge amount of lasting appeal. I would recommend this to anyone who plays video games.
Rated 8 out of 10 by keyon1234 dude, you GOTTA try this game
okay let me get this straight this game is great all those people who dont like this are crazy, but i still think this isn't PERFECT it glitches up most of the time but the game is fun, you play as four different groups which gameplay rely on difficulty such as team sonic and team rose are easy, team dark is a little harder,but team chaotix is the hardest,with a last story at the end. so its a good game overall you'll be happy you made the purchase! :) so go and buy it !
Rated 9 out of 10 by YearAndADay2112 Not the best, but still good.
Sonic Heroes is a good game, but there are better ones. The main gameplay is Team-based, meaning you constantly switch between Speed, Power, and Fly types. Speed is the fastest, and has some useful special moves. Power type is for breaking things and fighting enemies. And Fly type, well, flies. You should know this.
There are four teams you can play as: Team Sonic(Sonic, Tails, Knuckles), Team Dark(Shadow, Rouge, E-123 Omega), Team Rose(Amy, Cream, Big), and Team Chaotix(Espio, Charmy, Vector). Each team has their own difficulty level. Rose is for beginners(They only play half of the level), Sonic is normal difficulty, Dark is a bit harder than Sonic, and Chaotix is ENTIRELY different. By that, I mean Chaotix does random missions(Find X, Destroy X, Don't be detected), as opposed to the usual "Get from A to B" gameplay.
The worst thing about this game is the camera. I can not tell you how many times you will fall to your death because of that wretched thing!
Most everything else is fine, though. How's the soundtrack? Decent, but can get annoying. How's the Voice acting? Everyone sounds fine, except for Tails, who must have had some sort of headcold during this game. This is also the last Sonic game with Ryan Drummond as Sonic, and David Humphrey as Shadow. But be aware, the dialouge is the most cheesy stuff you'll ever hear(We'll show that creep the REAL SUPER POWER OF TEAMWORK!)! All in all, it's a good game. I will say though, if you have a Gamecube or a Wii, get the GC version. If not, this will do just fine. Thanks for reading this review.
