Sonic Heroes is Underrated by Vertekins Sonic Heroes is Underrated by Vertekins
:iconreadplz:

Requested by :iconcommander-dominic:

Heroes isn't my fave game in the series. Far from it. But then I don't think it deserved the vitriol it got in the years since release.

It's functional. The soundtrack is cool. There's a really cool charm to the way the characters converse in stages despite the frequent cheese and in a way that aspect is especially charming in retrospect given that so many of the characters are non-entities in Sonic games these days. The visuals are vibrant and Sonicky. The gimmick of it's team mechanic was alright and overall it was a decent game IMO.

It’s one of my personal least favorite Sonic games, but I do think it’s underrated.  I liked some of the levels, the scenery was colorful, and the soundtrack was quite nice.  But, I just can’t really like it as much as I want to.  It’s still a pretty good game, though.  It’s just the controls that kept me from fully appreciating the game.

This was my first Sonic game and  really liked it. I'm replaying it on the PC at the moment and looking back, the dialogue of the game is kinda cheesy, but I still like it.

Well cant say that I agree given that I hate this game his a burning passion from the level design to the boss design to the a good chunk of the story (with is just so boring and dares to look so good despite it) to worse of all the Gameplay I hate the heroes gameplay and on the question as to why I like shadow more then heroes it this point number one right behind the (in my opinion) Level design.
And I am completely serious I rather replay 06 than Heroes (granted that doesn't say much by me because I like 06 more then unleashed, colors, Generation and lost world anyway)
















God I am going to get so much hate for this

I really liked this game also. And I sometimes wish there was a sequel to it to show what happened to Metal Sonic at the end and explore the characters' personalities, interactions, and their abilities more.

I agree. While I can understand this not being everyone's favorite game I personally can't bring myself to hate it.. Mostly because it was one of the first (And currently) Only sonic games I've played and was a childhood favorite of mine.

I prefer to call it Post-Modern Sonic, not the Dreamcast era, it doesn't work when you have a game that's from a different console, and considering the dreamcast era was already dead at the time Sonic Heroes was released.

If you want to get the Chaos Emerals, I highly recommend that you play as Team Rose. The special stages actually become easier.

If anything the GC version deserves the hate. The game was pretty glitchy, but I heard it was a beta release.

The first Sonic game I've had, and I loved it. Seriously, I don't see why people hate it so much. Sure, it had its flaws, but they were minor compared to what the game had to offer. I might even say that I liked it even more than Sonic Adventure 2. :iconflameshieldplz:

As do I. I can at least appreciate that Heroes tries to make each team have some distinct differences from each other, instead of juggling polarizing gameplay styles like the Adventure games.
