Length: 4-5 hours per Team
Format: Playstation 2
Finall the little blue hedgehog is in my grasp to play once again! It's been a while since I had played one since I don't have a gamecube or dreamcast - so I was excited when I heard Sonic Heroes was gonna be on my playstation 2.
Well this one is a bit different from your other sonic games. You're put into teams of 3 which includes: Sonic Team: Sonic,Tails, Knuckles. Dark Team: Shadow, Rouge, Omega. Rose Team: Amy, Cream, Big. Chaotix Team: Espio, Charmy, Vector.
Each team has three kinds of characters - Speed character which of course runs fast and also has tracking jumps. Flying character which has a paralyzing shooting and the ability to fly. And a power character - which can break stuff and kick baddie ass. My only complaint here is the speed characters are too touchy at times and i'll find myself flying off the level trying to use them. Also the power character can do almost anything the speed character can. :/
Sonic has always been known for fantastic level design - once again the levels here are very creative and exciting. But they're all the same with each team! I couldn't even complete it a fourth or third time with Dark/Sonic teams because it was the same game as before!
There is a bit of replay value with getting A's and doing the secret missions and stuff - but they're honestly still the -same- levels.
On a last note - the ps2 version supposedly runs at a slower framerate then the gamecube and xbox versions - if you've never played those versions it won't be a problem. It's still the same game.
Replay Value: 7
Definatly rent it first if you're not a huge fan.
