Seems like every topic has people with varying opinions on Sonic Heroes, Sonic 06, Shadow, and other 3D games, usually resulting in us saying that they suck. But do we really hate these games as much as we say we do? I mean, there is some good to them, although it often seems like people just jump on the bandwagon. Here are my opinions on the 3D games: Sonic R: I don't know why I like this game, but I do. The AI sucks, the music is weird yet catchy, the characters control like tanks, yet it's fun. Sonic Adventure 1: It was ok. Sonic's levels are great. So are Tails' levels, as they are just Sonic's but with racing AI. But the game was a technical mess. It aged terribly. The cutscenes were poorly done (too much running in places) and the camera sucked. Also Amy's levels and Big's levels were just not fun (Either they were to slow or they just had bad gameplay mechanics). Also Chao were kinda useless. Sonic Adventure 2: The best of the 3D games. If the levels were all like Sonic's and Shadow's we would have had a perfect game. The only game where I actually like Shadow. They fixed the cutscene fuck ups, yet they still added bad gameplay modes and the Chao. Also Kart Racing of all things (WTF was that?) Sonic Heroes: I like this game. It has it's problems, but it's definitely one of the more solid Sonic games out there. The environments are very reminiscent of the classics, however they seem a bit too big for the characters. Sonic was quick and the game involved Metal Sonic for once (Not in the way I hoped, but still). Too many characters though, and teamwork was odd. Shadow: I cringed when this was announced and I was right to do so. It was quick, and that's all I can give it. The first game with a solo character that ruined the spindash forever. Guns made the game laughable, and the glitches and the introduction of 4kids voices (FIND THE COMPUTER ROOM!) made the game worse. The vehicles were unnecessary, as you should be the ultimate life form, and they go slower than you run. Sonic Riders: Meh. I kinda liked this game. In fact I love playing this game when I use Action Replay to deplete my tank of air so that I'm running the whole time (Occasionally I can win depending on what level I play). Strange gameplay mechanic though. A relatively enjoyable racer though Sonic 06: At first I liked it. Then too many glitches got in the way. People say that they've fallen through the floor in Sonic Heroes and such, but that never happened to me until this game. Silver was too slow and the glitches seem to be from the Sonic Adventure 1 days, in some cases even worse (Sure Sonic had bad mouthing in Sonic Adventure 1, but I remember one cutscene had Sonic's mouth moving for at least 5 seconds after he finished talking). The amigos were pointless, Knuckles lost all personality, and Shadow is still driving shit. Also the removed capability of Super Sonic is just disgraceful. Sonic and the Secret Rings: I liked it, I just don't like it enough to play it much. I beat the game, but it's just not the game to go back to. Stupid gameplay ideas like leveling up to go fast or to turn good or things like charge jumping made the game not feel sonic-y enough. At least there weren't 800 characters, and Tails, Knuckles, and Eggman were the only characters in the story, even if they weren't really who they are (But their personalities were like they should be either way).
