    Though Sonic's greatest rivals finally gets a leading role in his own game, he fails to deliver what the fans want.

    Bouncing from wall to wall, grinding on the rails, collecting rings which make a fun-filled "ching" sound... all the classic fun-filled Sonic action except with guns. All round good game right? WRONG!...

    Gamespot, when will you ever learn? These GCN, PS2, and XBox Sonic games are some of the best!

    Rated on December 27, 2005 by SpawnShadow

    Boy, I tell ya, Gamespot rated this gem of a game pretty dang low. It's times like these that I start to get a bit ticked off. Shadow the Hedgehog is a good game, and don't take just my word for it!...

    Hedgehogs were not meant to drive, carry firearms or attempt serious storylines.

    Rated on June 29, 2008 by AngstOverlord

    Shadow the Hedgehog. Beloved by fangirls and crowned by many an angsty Sonic clone with no depth. Trying to cash in on the popularity he has, Sega created a more 'mature' platformer. Shadow runs, jump...

    Shadow the Hedghog is a ok game. The best part is choosing his fate. I don't see why it has such low ratings.

    Rated on July 19, 2006 by tvwatcher666

    This game is ok. I thought it could have been better. It follows the adventures of Shadow the Hedgehog while he tries to learn what he is. Depending on how you beat each level, you can choose Shadow's...
