Some cutscenes can make no sense depending on your morality route, for example you can directly disobey and betray Black Doom but the next cutscene acts like Shadow never betrayed him at all and has always been loyal to him. See more »

Currently one of the best video games in Sonic history.
21 December 2005 | by Grantfan2See all my reviews

Shadow the Hedgehog takes place after Sonic Heroes and before Sonic Battle, only its one of the best video games in Sonic's entire history! Choosing to battle the demon-like alien Black Doom and his hellish army of aliens theor G.U.N and their military robots and soldiers even against Eggman and his robots and Shadow Androids, another added feature is the good or evil chooses in each stage which leads to another and yet deadlier envioment. Often characters may ask you to help with even the DUMBEST missions (collect rings from Eggman's amusement park for example) But it makes up with you getting deeper into Shadow's seemly unknown past.
