Trivia

This is the first game with Jason Griffith as Shadow and Sonic, along with an entirely new cast of voices from 4Kids! Entertainment, which ran all the way until 2010 with the last game with the cast being Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing. See more »

Goofs

The G.U.N commander blames shadow for the ARK raid and has held a grudge for revenge for 50 years, despite being on-board as a child at the time of the raid, so he should know that G.U.N killed everyone. What is most puzzling about this is that he now works for the organization that ruined his life. See more »

Shadow The Hedgehog (Personal Comment)
17 November 2005 | by DragonsBond97625-1See all my reviews

The overall gameplay I'm going to give is 8 out of 10. There are some minor problems of using the homing attack and then accidentally fall to you death and this is the first I witnessed when a Sonic game uses the word "Damn" more often in a kids' game, hence the rating: (E 10+ : Everyone Age 10 and Up) especially when Shadow loses a life. I heard that majority of the voice actors for this game are mostly the same actors from Sonic X or 4 Kids Entertainment. I kind of missed the original actors who played the previous voices of Sonic The Hedgehog and Shadow The Hedgehog from the previous games: Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, Sonic Heroes, and Sonic Battle and no offense, the one of played as Rouge The Bat, (Kathleen Delaney, last I checked), it kind of makes Rouge's voice sounds older like somewhat in the late 20s-40s and personally, I would prefer the one who played Rouge's voice before (Lani Minella) from the other previous Sonic games instead.
