Did You Know?


Due to the mildly violent nature of the game, the ESRB rating was, for a time, in question. The official ESRB website originally had the game rated as T, along with GameSpot, but the official site listed E-10+. The T rating was seemingly further evidenced, however, by the fact that, at trade shows where Sega showed off the game, they asked only those 13 and older to play the title. Early builds of the game even had mild swearing in them, and the game does include two mildly offensive words (damn and hell). For the English Version of the game, Sega took out the human's blood, changed the color of alien blood from red to green, edited the word 'piss' and put 'tick' instead (Sonic says this), and censored the scene when a GUN soldier shoots Maria, cutting out as Maria is shot and falls to the ground. Regardless, the ESRB website later updated the rating to E-10+, thus making it unanimous. See more »

Shadow The Hedgehog (Personal Comment)
17 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The overall gameplay I'm going to give is 8 out of 10. There are some minor problems of using the homing attack and then accidentally fall to you death and this is the first I witnessed when a Sonic game uses the word "Damn" more often in a kids' game, hence the rating: (E 10+ : Everyone Age 10 and Up) especially when Shadow loses a life. I heard that majority of the voice actors for this game are mostly the same actors from Sonic X or 4 Kids Entertainment. I kind of missed the original actors who played the previous voices of Sonic The Hedgehog and Shadow The Hedgehog from the previous games: Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, Sonic Heroes, and Sonic Battle and no offense, the one of played as Rouge The Bat, (Kathleen Delaney, last I checked), it kind of makes Rouge's voice sounds older like somewhat in the late 20s-40s and personally, I would prefer the one who played Rouge's voice before (Lani Minella) from the other previous Sonic games instead.
