Storyline

Meanwhile, Rouge is flying around and finds Shadow (yes, he's back!) and E-123 Omega capsulized. Omega is furious that Eggman disposed of him, and Shadow is rendered of all memory, and he wants after Eggman to find out what really happened to himself. Thus, Team Dark is made. Amy reads about Sonic going after Eggman in the newspaper. Amy is mad at Sonic because she wasn't brought along. Big The Cat is once again on the lookout for his frog Froggy, and Cream The Rabbit is looking for Chocolate, Cream's Chao's twin. Here comes Team Rose!

Trivia

After the fight against the Robot Carnival/Storm, Eggman will always say, "Don't get too excited, boys! Those were the easy ones!" regardless of the team being used. This is likely an oversight, as both Team Rose and Team Dark have female characters within them. See more »

The Final Gem In The Sonic Series
14 November 2016 | by dragbehindskunkfuSee all my reviews

Sonic the Hedgehog made his first video game appearance in 1991. His first video game was such a success that Sega made him their mascot. The character would appear in more installments.

Although Sega quit making consoles in 2001, Sonic would continue to appear in games played on other platforms. And the game Sonic Heroes marked the beginning of the period.

Besides being the first Sonic game released in Sega's post-hardware years, Sonic Heroes is also something I would like to call the final gem in the Sonic series. In other words, it is the last game in the franchise where things are done pretty much within tradition. From Sonic Adventure to this game, the fox's speaking role was done by little lads. But in games following Sonic Heroes, old long-haired undesirables stole that role and (perhaps) to no end which kinda saddens me. If the character in a video game, TV show, or film is a young boy, it would be really nice to reflect that character by using a young boy actor to do his words. I can only hope Sega would understand that.

Anyway. everything else about the game such the music, graphics, and gameplay, their just as good as any Sonic game in Sonic's 3D era. Again, this is the final gem in the Sonic series.
