The G.U.N commander blames shadow for the ARK raid and has held a grudge for revenge for 50 years, despite being on-board as a child at the time of the raid, so he should know that G.U.N killed everyone. What is most puzzling about this is that he now works for the organization that ruined his life. See more »

User Reviews

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.
