Very disapointing, yes the effects and battles look good but this game lacks in enjoyment after a while.
I think the sonic team created this for the top world players because the game can become frustratingly hard.
Many players are stuck at the end of power plant level with team sonic/dark.I have completed that level with dark but I find it harder with sonic.
Rail canyon stops people in their tracks when you really want to find out what happens to Shadow at the end.
There is no Chao garden or small animals so this game disapoints chao fans(including me)I found it helped me cool down in sonic adventure 1 and 2(which I have both completed)after a frustratingly hard level.
This game really disapointed me,I wish they would have created the levels at team rose standard but a tiny bit harder,and bosses at team chaotix standard.

I've got to say that this game will only get most of it's sales through people loving the old Sonic from the Sega Mega-Drive days.
Although seeing Sonic, Tails & Knuckles together again after so long does bring a tear to the eye, but I feel that the game has a stinking degree of rushness about it.
You'd think for a game of such calibre, after so long in the making, would be a bit better. It oozes potential, but with a minimal story line and extra features the whole consept is lost.
The game does work in 3-D, and it's a very (VERY) fast paced game. It may be my personal opinion that the whole Sonic thing is destroyed, but that's because I have only played on the 2-D Sonic classics and feel a bit let down.
I don't want to put anyone off buying it, as the game can give hours of game play with 4 possible teams. But I don't really see why their isn't the option to play as just 1 character though.
You should buy this game though to make your own opinion.
There is fast action gameplay in this title. The Power/Speed/Fly thing is excellent. The 9 is because of the difficulty level! Even as Team Rose it is hard as hell.
I found these amazing for backgrounds (as usual for sonic titles even the early ones) and Knuckles hair was great. Not any major complaints here except Team Rose looked quite crap except for Amy.
A bit annoying in parts. They got rid of the classic Sonic 3 music so it gets a 5. The voices for Team Rose were REAL annoying.
Maybe it was because I was prejudiced against Team Rose or maybe not who knows? Team Rose IS for the younger players. But I don't seee them getting past the Egg Emperor using the amazingly slow Big the Cat...
