As part of the PS2 Classics line-up, Sonic Heroes is now available on the European Playstation Store for £7.99/€9.99.
Note that all the PS2 games under the PS2 Classics label are emulated ports, so this is exactly the same as the PS2 version. This isn't an "HD" version of the game.

Also, to avoid confusion, Playstation Network (PSN) recently changed it's name to Sony Entertainment Network (SEN).

When it comes to consoles, yes. Not sure how bad the PC version was.

The PC version was a port of the GCN one with annoyingly uncustomisable controls that were set up very weird. Best graphical potential of the lot, but cause it was the GCN one the CGI scenes were quite low-res. The PS2 version will always be the worst one.

I had the Xbox version when I had the game...I think I'll be giving this a miss to be honest...

I've not played the PS2 one, so excuse my asking, but what exactly was so bad about it?

I played the shit out of the Xbox version years ago, so when I played the PS2 version at a girlfriends house I noticed differences immediatly. It looked like shit, and I remember Metal Overlord having messed up colours. The framerate was also lower than what I remember. There's probably more though, it has been some time since I touched either version!

Very low framerate and a lack of shadows on platforms (but not landscape) make it very hard to play the PS2 version. There are also some duller colours and (I think) a lack of certain shader effects in places.

From the Wiki:

The PlayStation 2 version did suffer from clipping and graphic faults, not to mention a lower frame rate, making it the least well recieved of the ports.

Gamecube one was best. Played the PS2 one for a year and a half, and thought it was amazing. Got the 'Cube version then realised what the fuck I'd been playing and how disillusioned at how good I thought that version was.

Still, it's nice this is on the PS3 store. I actually have it with its case and whatnot, with the shiny tinfoil look- shame the Gamecube version didn't get that treatment.

If you liked Sonic Heroes and are planning to get a Wii U, I'd wait patiently for the unevitable VC release... sometime this decade.

I never played Sonic Heroes before, at £7.99 it looks like I'll continue to not play it.

Are there notable differences between the Xbox and Gamecube versions? I've only played Xbox and PS2 (my friend down the road had the PS2 version)
