Sonic has grown up.

Okay, I am a HUGH fan of everything Shadow, but I can't say the same about this game. First off, i feel very Jak 2 about this. A normally "everyone" game got turned into a gun 'em up. That is fine, but it detracts from the purpose of a Sonic game. Don't get me wrong, it fits in, Shadow ain't about sunshine and floweres, but for hardcore Sonic fanatics such as myself, this was a bit of a shock. I also dislike the use of the 4kids staff for the voices. They are okay but not the best. Also the use of cursing and violence doesn't belong in the Sonic world. All in all this it the break down:

Story: Starts to fill in a few holes that Heroes created. All the previous Sonic Chars are in it (except for bug as of yet). All in all, good plot, just not explained till later.
Graphics: Phenominal. It is the best Sonic ones anyway.
Gamplay: The same and different all in one package. You need to try for yourself on this one.
Content: Not meant for little kids who like Sonic. It was a bit mcuh for me, lets say that.
