Sonic Heroes

CNET Editors' review

Dynamic, unpredictable gameplay make this a superb installment in the Sonic series. Unlike the other games, instead of controlling one character, you lead a team of three. Sonic is good at accelerating, Tails at flying, and Knuckles at crushing enemies. You control them one at a time, and the other two just follow. The graphics are very impressive. Backgrounds and textures look colorful and bright, the models are well animated, and the flashes and special effects come so thick and fast, you'll find yourself dragged into the action as soon as you start playing. No common 3D platformer, Sonic Heroes is full of action, unexpected rides, jumps, and loops. Amazingly, these advanced graphical tricks don't slow down the slick animation a bit. The game's few slips include a somewhat unfriendly camera, a save-disabled, one-stage demo, and a rather low level of difficulty. Nevertheless, it's a great game for kids.
