  1. Sad that the best thing about shadow the hedgehog was its soundtrack, it suffered from the same problem sonic 2006 did…a lot of good ideas with poor implementation

  2. Let be honest call of duty just like halo is more about the mutiplayer gameplay over a good story these days

  3. Personally the extreme contrast between typical Sonic games and the dark, edgy atmosphere was exactly what I found so appealing and even hilarious about Shadow the Hedgehog.

  4. I don’t think Shadow took itself all that seriously. In fact, if Shadow DID take itself more seriously, it might have been better. The real problem was that it turned a dark atmosphere and made it camp so kids could still play it, and this was ruined anyway with the forced use of the word “DAMN.”

  5. Well Sega assumes all their shit will be gold. There’s been, what, three good Sonic games in the past twelve years?
