Sonic Heroes is Underrated

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.

This was my first Sonic game too and I have great childish memories it. All the shitty "fanboys" who hate this game go fuck themselves.

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.

People are talking so much about the games that "suck", that they're not talking about ones they like!

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.

Agreed. Also one of the only games where a lot of the characters actually DO SOMETHING AND NOT ACT LIKE CHEERLEADERS!!!

Agreed. This was the last game of the Dreamcast(and also the last good Sonic game).
