FINALLY!!! A new sonic game. We had Sonic games on the Gamecube before but they were all originally on another console. They were running on an old gaming engine as well. But this game is a work of art. Everything, the new team formation, the graphics, the storyline (which is interesting because Shadow survived but he doesnt remember how because he got an amnesia and also that his enemy is now Eggman also). There are 4 teams of 3 characters each. Team Sonic has Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles. Team Dark has Shadow, Rouge, and this new robot guy that was created/betrayed by Eggman called Omega. Team Rose has Amy, Cream and her chao friend Cheese, and Big the Cat. Another excellent thing as well. The people from Knuckles Chaotix returned. Team Chaotix contains Espio, Vector, and Charmy. They all are against Eggman. BUY THIS THE 1ST DAY IT COMES OUT!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A graphical, colorful masterpiece., September 4, 2005
A Kid's Review
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Sonic Heroes - Gamecube (Video Game)
I have always wanted this game; ever since it's release. But fopr some reason; I never seemed to get it. Every chance I had, something always went wrong. Wether Blockbuster wouldn't accept my membership card; or, I was short a few bucks. FINALY, after being out with my uncle; not even looking for it, I stumbled across it for $20! We bought it in a heartbeat! As soon as I came home, I started playing it. I was simply blown out of the water by its amazing graphics! It was so colorful! Not to mention the fun of playing it! The controls were perfect! I found it challenging, but not too bad to the point of frustration (exept on a few levels). Overall, this game is definitely worth buying for $20+, wether youre a die hard sonic fan, or new to the series.

BUY THIS GAME! BUY IT NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST SONIC GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!, July 18, 2004
This review is from: Sonic Heroes - Gamecube (Video Game)
This is better than any classic Sonic game, or even the Adventure games! I loved those too, but this is the ultimate! You get to play as 4 teams with some of your favorite carachters. The teams are: Team Sonic (Sonic, Tails, Knuckles)(DUH!), Team Dark (Shadow, Rouge, Omega), Team Rose (Amy, Cream, Big), and Team Chaotix (Espio, Charmy, Vector)... I beat the whole game with all 4 teams, and the last story too!! I dont wanna spoil any last story info, to those who havent beat it. Im gonna tell the storylines of the 4 teams story modes...
Team Sonic: While Sonic races around the rocks in the mountains, Tails and Knuckles come back and give Sonic an evil letter from Eggman. Eggman: MUHAHAHAHA!! Guess what, Sonic Heroes?! Ive finally devoloped the ultimate weapon and will conquer the world in 3 days! Think you can stop me!? MUHAHAHAHA!! Oh, that dumb robot, he always thinks he can really destroy Sonic. Back to the story. Then, Sonic, Tails, & Knuckles speed off to find Eggman.
Team Dark: Rouge breaks into Eggman's base to find his secret treasure. But, suddenly in this room, she finds Shadow, only to find out that he has amneisa! What also happens is Rouge accidently frees E-123 Omega, the most powerful E-Series robot. Omega: Must eraticate all Eggman's robots! Eggman just sealed him away, and didnt pay any attention to him. Eggman! OK, then, Rouge, Shadow, and Omega join forces to look for Eggman, and to try to get Shadow's memory back.
Team Rose: It's a lovely day... Amy reads the newspaper, and finds Sonic, Froggy, and Chacola. Chacola is Cheese The Chao's brother. And, yall know Froggy, hes Big's pet and buddy. Suddenly, the newspaper and Cream get blown by the wind. Big catches Cream with his fishing rod... Cream & Big look in the newspaper too, and are sad to find Chacola and Froggy missing. So, they set off to find Froggy, Chacola, and Sonic...
Team Chaotix: This is their second appearence. They were orignally with Knuckles in a game called Knuckles Chaotix. Ok... It's a lazy day in the Chaotix Dective Agency's place, until Charmy comes in and finds a delivery. When they open it, a radio with a strange voice is tellin them that he can pay them handsomly. Charmy & Vector just are delighted and have cash in their eyes! LOL! Espio has a bad feeling about it. Vector: Espio, dont be silly! You know our policy, we never turn down work that pays. Charmy: Yeah, you know our policy! So, they head off to get their rewards. Im not spoiling who the clinet really is.
OK, that was it, everyone. Peace.
P.S. Buy this game if you have a Gamecube, XBOX, or PS2 ASAP!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool Sonic game, December 29, 2003
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Sonic Heroes - Gamecube (Video Game)
I played a demo of Sonic Heroes on the bonus Mario Kart double dash game and I loved it. (this is coming from a big sonic fan even with sonic stuffed animals(avalible on ebay))If you like sonic games this is great. You can play with 3 characters at a time and each have its own ability. I also suggest getting Sonic adventure 2 battle and Sonic adventure DX. (for those who played adventure 2 battle Shadow comes back!. These are also great and I have a feeling you wont be sorry for getting Sonic Heroes!
Happy New Year!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Next-Gen. Sonic, January 4, 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Sonic Heroes - Gamecube (Video Game)
I have never played a Sonic game before, save Sonic Adventure 2 Battle at electronics stores, but when I played Sonic Heroes on my demo disk that came with Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, I was immediately hooked. This could easily be one of the best games I have ever played. I would reccomend this game to anybody!

5.0 out of 5 stars This game will go down in history., December 15, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Sonic Heroes - Gamecube (Video Game)
Sonic Heroes is a game which uses a whole new style of gameplay. The main focus being teamwork, players control four teams, each consisting of three characters. There is Team Sonic, featuring Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles, Team Dark, with Shadow, Rouge, and a new robot named Omega, Team Rose, consisting of Amy, Cream, and Big, and the return of the Chaotix in Team Chaotix, which has Espio, Vector, and Charmy in it. Each team has three formations, which each character is assigned to. The formations are: speed, flying, and power. Speed characters are used to zip through the level, power characters are used to get rid of obstacles and enemies, and the flying characters are used to reach higher places. Also, each team has a different style of gameplay. In Team Sonic, the focus is to get through the level quickly and stylishly. Team Dark's gameplay is more focused on combat, so expect high amounts of enemies. Team Rose is designed to be used by beginners, think of them as Team Sonic on easy mode. Team Chaotix, however, requires the player to use stealth and to sometimes collect items. All in all, this game looks extremely fun, and hits GameCube January 7th in North America. The Xbox and PS2 versions follow on the 27th, so be on the lookout!
Oh, and by the way, don't be fooled by their name, but Team Dark is, indeed, good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sonic is the best From Kai, January 7, 2004
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Sonic Heroes - Gamecube (Video Game)
This Sonic game might be the best if the camera views wasn't so bad. Anyway this game has five teams Team dark, Team Sonic, Team Rose,Team Chaotix, and Team Super witch you have to unlock. You can switch trough three characters by pressing the X and Y buttons and each character has a special technique, speed power and fly, use different ones in order to overcome obsticals. Each Character has a level up two(3 is maximum) you can get these by destroying enemies or bosses. The coins are still rings and you lose a life by restarting the game like Sonic Adventure 2, but you can get an extra life by getting one hundred rings. This game also features the return or Metal Sonic! Oh and I forgot to mention that at the end of each stage you get a ranking ( A,B,C,D,E) E is the worst A is the best. Sonic Heroes has 14 (long)massive levels that will give you hours of gamplay. It doesn't take much practice once you get use to the buttons or if you have been playing adventure games. The graphics are cool and they look similair to the Sonic on Dreamcast, but it is a great game and it is out now in Wal mart K mart or any store you go to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pros and Cons, January 22, 2004
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Sonic Heroes - Gamecube (Video Game)
PROS
-Better voices
-Better music
-Beautiful graphics
-Enemies don't die after 1 hit
-Levels are longer and more challenging
-Multiplayer
CONS
-Camera angle still needs a bit of work
-No Chao Garden
-All of the teams go through the same levels
-Pointless in-level dialogue ("Wow, my head's spinning!" "What a wild ride!")
-I don't think it's fair that they made Team Dark have the hardest stages. They're my favorite team, and their levels take like, 20 minutes to complete. And the boss battles... oh, the boss battles...
-They brought Omochao back (but at least he doesn't stalk you in the levels this time)
OVERALL
This game is wonderful and highly addicting, but it does have some flaws. But hey, nothing is perfect, right? I'd reccomend renting it before buying it. I congratulate the Sonic Team for making another great game, and even if it does have flaws, they can't do anything but keep getting better. I reccomend this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good Sonic Game, January 14, 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Sonic Heroes - Gamecube (Video Game)
a lot of people complain about the 3D Sonic Games, but Sonic Team has listen(for the most part). The game is mostly based on pure speed gameplay, though it sorta chages depending on the team. The new three character system is a nice twist, though tough to master at first, and there is also a tutorial that no one seems to bother mentioning. Furthermore, the game also tries to go back to it's root with Chaos Emerald collecting which are required(as in the previous 2D Sonic Games) to see the final part of the game. In addition, each team is different with their own difficulty level and team chaotix is more adventuring platform. Also brought back are Rankings and Embelems. This all adds up to a nice game, but like every game even those that claim themselves as a masterpiece: IT HAS ITS FLAWS.
First off, while I said the three team method is cool and everything, it is also sometimes confusing and you can't switch in mid-air. This game can get hetic(especially with team Dark), and sometimes the camera can confuse(which has been a problem as well in previous 3D Sonics). Also while each team is different, it's really about length and Difficulty which varies from Team Rose (easy) to Team Dark (tough). Furthermore, Team Chaotix Mission's can be very long and Tedious. Also despite the easiest team being there, this isn't a piece of take, it can take a couple to dozens of tries for one level or boss, and that can happen for a number reasons (mentioned in this reviews.
However, this should not deter you from the game, it is a nice change of pace in gameplay and difficulty. The music and voices are great, though you can't switch to japanese and some of the english voices are annoying. Plus if you are stuck you're team mates might give you a clue of what to do.
Sonic Heroes is by no means a perfect game, but does a nice job of changing Sonic's direction over some critics. If you like the 3d Games I recommend this, if you don't then atleast give the final version a shot and see for yourself.
