Sonic...Heroes?...TEAMWORK!...CHAOTIX?!?!?! Yeah its sonic heroes on the gamecube xbox and Ps2. first off i liked to start off by saying if you're looking for the game get the Xbox or GameCube version. DO NOT GET THE PS2 VERSION IT WILL BREAK YOU. okay now that thats aside lets start the blog.
Okay Sonic Heroes is a 3D sonic game where theres ephasis on teamwork (wait isn't that in every sonic game since sonic 2?) what i mean by teamwork is a unique style of gameplay where you can control 3 people at once yay. no i'm serious. lemmie start with the story.
One of the many reasons Sonic Heroes is named the Classic 3d Sonic game is because of the storyline. it is real simple. comparing the story of this game to others is like comparing spongbob to Dragonball Z KAI. theres no beast on angel island, theres no old nutty professer who wants to destroy earth because he lost his granddaugther, theres no donimic time creature voiced by Dan Green, no its just team sonic trying to stop Robotnik from taking over the world simple right, what? oh all right theres more, team Dark (Shadow Rouge Omega) are each looking for Robotnick for answers, Team Rose (Amy, Cream and Cheese, and Big[yes the fat cat is back] are all missing something, and Team Chaotix (yes their back only 3 of them) (Espio, Vector, Charmy Bee[what why the heck is he here] are all on a mission from their clinet. the last story, which is unlocked by collecting all 7 chaos emeralds we find out that Team Chaotix mystery clinet is nonother that Dr. Robotnick who has been trapped in the final fortress explains that Metal sonic has returened and locked him up, and has been diguised as Robotnick the whole time. also he has been copying data from the teams to turn into Metal Madness, oh wait i said that wrong, lemmie start over...to turn into...METAL MADNESS!! (thunder sound). so with all chaos emeralds Sonic turns super and gives Knuckles and Tails super shield and together with the POWER OF TEAMWORK, they defeat metal... wait wait...METAL OVERLORD and run off to their next adventure.
Sonic Heroes Gameplay requires you to play as three characters at once. you switch between B and Y , X, Y for Gamecube. each character has their own attributes. Personally, i really like this style of gameplay and hopes it returns in future sonic games. something else thats is new to gameplay which alot of people HATE! enemies with health bars. now in this game it's not so bad because of power type characters and level up system. any way the speed type type characters perform like the sonic you know, they run around at the speed of sound. like the adventures days, they homing attack and the spindash also returns, sorta, now it's taking on the role of the rocket accel. All you have to do is hold down X button until every teammate is bunched up then let go and sonic will go flying, and like the adventures days, you can perform it on the fly. there are also some new abilities. Sonic and Shadow have the same abilties, Light speed dash, triangle jump, jump from wall to wall, Blue and black tornado, circle around in the air to create a tornado, slide attack. Amy has finally gotten the badass creation and plays like a carbon copy of sonic, except a little bit slower and she can't triangle jump nor lightspeed dash, she can't slide attack, but instead uses her hammer to attack. and instead of uses the blue tornado to create to attack enemies she uses her hammer to create a path of wind after wards by mashing the a button to HOVER yes she can Hover for a short period of time. Then theres espio, the way of the NINJA!! espio is faster than amy but slower than sonic and shadow. instead of sliding he shoots ninja knives or whatever they're called. he doesn't lightspeed dash but in order for cutting that out he gets some of the coolest features for a speed type character. Espio can triangle jump but his triangle jump is the best because sticks on the wall FOVEVER. im not kidding he will stay on the wall until you start wall jumping, also, instead of having the blue tornado he creates wind by turning INVISIBLE but you can still see him nobody else. i would as him more if only team chaotix didn't run mission based sturture.
