While the typical controls of the 3D entries in the Sonic series apply to some extent, it is playable as a third-person shooter, a different direction for the franchise. Its DarkerAndEdgier tone, Shadow's constant {{Wangst}}ing, and frequent [[ContemplateOurNavels navel-gazing]] turned many fans of the franchise away, and the game was disliked by some critics due to its poor controls and camera. It is, however, defended for its branching-path style, relatively bug-free gameplay, and decent music and visuals. On another note, this game marks the debut of the [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] cast from ''SonicX'' into the video games. Ironically, they started off doing the Sonic game that's the ''least'' kid-friendly.

Added DiffLines:

* RoleReprisal: The Creator/FourKidsEntertainment cast voicing the characters in this one counts as both this and TheOtherDarrin, since while said cast replaced the previous games' voice cast, they had voiced the roles in the ''Anime/SonicX'' dub.

* {{Jerkass}}:
** Black Doom, Eggman, and the GUN Commander. The GUN Commander orders his soldiers to kill Shadow, even when you're doing Doom's missions his aliens shoot at you, and in all of the levels where you can assist Eggman, regardless of the path you take, you ''still'' end up fighting him as a sub-boss. EverythingIsTryingToKillYou.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Shadow in the previous games is a bit moody and serious while having some cockiness to him. This game takes away the cocky aspect of his character and made him even more serious, acts callous towards others (even regaining his disdain for humans for some reason), and even having a rebellious attitude ("No one tells me what to do!"). He also appears to be annoyed with Sonic's presence unlike in ''Heroes'' where he seems to be fond of fighting against him.

Shadow, my son... If you're listening to this, then the worst has happened... you need to know the truth. The government plans to shut down this research facility... The government plans to cease all of our research... and imprison all who know about you. I made a terrible mistake, Shadow... It's all my fault... making contact with that Comet...

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Shadow. Is ruthless in achieving his goals, act callous and is apathetic to (most) things that are going on in the world. However, He is not without positive qualities. Blames himself for Maria's death and views the humans as terrible beings for what they did, saved Sonic earlier on despite his annoyance of his presence, and was ready to go against Black Doom after realising that he wanted to use the chaos emeralds to destroy the planet. This is best shown in the Slightly Hero ending, where Shadow got completely wrecked after finding out that the world views him a nightmare, going so far as regretting his own existance.

Blames tries to stay on the side of justice, while still focusing on getting answers to his past. He also blames himself for Maria's death and views the humans as terrible beings for what they did, saved Sonic earlier on despite his annoyance of his presence, and was ready to go against Black Doom after realising that he wanted to use the chaos emeralds to destroy the planet.

His disregard for humans is backed up by the fact that they killed everyone on the ARK and view him as nothing but an experiment, saved Sonic earlier on despite his annoyance of his presence, and was ready to go against Black Doom after realising that he wanted to use the chaos emeralds to destroy the planet. This is best shown in the Slightly Hero ending, where Shadow got completely wrecked after finding out that the world views him a nightmare, going so far as regretting his own existance.
