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 »

The Darkest Soinc game ever.
13 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sonic just got darker in this game. In this game, you play out as Sonic's arch rival Shadow and you fight the black arms, G.U.N. and Dr.Eggman's robots. You chose to be a Hero or Villain and fight your way through the game to fight out everything about Shadow's past. This game is really darker than other sonic games:

Gameplay: As Shadow,you can still do all the things that Sonic can do and few new things: In the game you can use guns and drive vehicles and kill not just eggman's robots, but also humans and aliens. When my big sister heard about this game, she didn't like the fact that Shadow uses guns. When I got the game for both of us to play, she really liked it.

Action: Chaos control and Chaos blast are two very awesome moves you use to teleport and destroy things. The action in this game is very awesome!!

Story: The story of this game is way and I mean WAY darker than the story from the previous games. Each ending of the game is has huge drama and the stories you can create while playing the game, the more good or evil you are, the darker the ending.

This is one very cool sonic game. You WILL love it!!!
