Ever since Sonic Adventure Battle 2 and Sonic DX (Go rent those right now!!) Sega has been going down hill at a speen not even Sonic could match.
Basicly, You play as Shadow (Around the time after Sonic Heroes ended), You can't remember much (Since when could he?).
And then the "Black demons" come. The system in this is NOT like any other Sonic game.
You can shoot the bad guys with guns, that happen to have hardly any ammo, and by them putting this in the game it makes jumping or dash attacking the bad guys useless, so stock up on guns.
Also, like in Sonic Heroes, the bad guys have health... so unless you want to jump on them 15 times, You'll need to grab a gun.
Also, no more running threw levels at high speeds, You have to stop and kill things, If you want to be evil, you can waste your time by knocking out every good guy on the level, if you want to be bad, you kill the bad guys. tho you could just go with nutral, but by doing that you'll run out of things to do in on hour flat.
The level to level system is like a tournament, If you go with evil, You level up to the uper level on the level to level map, if your good you go to the lower side, if your nutral you go striaght.
So theres many dif combos, nutral nutral nutral nutral, nutral bad nutral nutral nutraln ect ect.
With one path you could kill egg man, with another you could be killing black demons, and much more.
If you love the Sonic story from sonic adventure and up, You'll go crazy for the story in this, as it tells you everything they didn't tell you in the other games, the story in this game ROCKS, but it's just not very fun and I Put down my controller in no time.
Don't rent this unless you REALLY need to know more about the story.

I rented Shadow the hedge hog and found that it was so hard to play I threw my controller agenst the wall 8 times, I only had the game for 3 days! The controles were all messed-up and the plot that it gave me made no sense! Who's idea was it to make a game about an evil hedge hog any way!
this game is ok i guess, but being a sonic fan...key word "sonic" fan, this game just didnt cut it i guess. the graphics are awesome but the game play is repetitive. Its like playing the same thing over and over just with diffrent scenes. Oh and the gun sound in the main menu is extremely corny...lol
