** Not only that, but you'll also need to get an A-rank on EVERY single mission (dark, neutral and hero) of EVERY stage. Once you do that, you unlock "Expert Mode", which is a trial run of ''all the game's stages in a row'', this time designed to be ''more difficult than before''. Thankfully though, most of them just involve getting to the end, and none of the time limits are still in place. Regardless, if you weren't sick of seeing the same levels over and over again before, you certainly will be once Expert Mode is finished.
**And if you ''really'' want to go all the way, you need to find all 5 keys to unlock the secret doors in every level.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Shadow in the previous games is a bit moody and serious while having some cockiness to him. This game takes 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.

* EverythingIsTryingToKillYou: The game does not care whose side you're on; ''all'' the enemies will try to kill Shadow, even if his partner is allied with them.

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 most 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 [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] cast from ''SonicX'' into the video games. Ironically, they started off doing the Sonic game that's the ''least'' kid-friendly.

** The president of the United Federations looks a heck of a lot like [[WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant Kent Mansley]].
** Sonic says "I guess that means...welcome to the next level" during a cutscene. Welcome To The Next Level was one of Sega's slogans during the 16-bit days.
** The Egg Vacuum weapon is based on [[VideoGame/BillyHatcherandtheGiantEgg Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg,]] since it's an egg from the game with a chicken's head.

** In the dark path, [[spoiler:the Black Arms use the Eclipse Cannon to destroy the ''Sonic'' universe's equivalent of the White House, similar to the famous scene from ''Film/IndependenceDay''.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: So OK, it's pretty established there is some minor swearing throughout the game, but that's not too out of line with an E10+ rating. The ''lyrics'' of the credits song in the Dark paths contain excerpts such as "No more gods, no more graves" and "Heaven can't save us, hell is a joke", themes not touched elsewhere in the game.

* RecurringBoss: Black Bull, faced after the Hero Stage 2 and True Hero Stage 4. Egg Breaker, faced after the Dark Stage 3, Neutral/Hero Stage 4, and True Neutral Stage 5. (Note that it's impossible to get to the first two appearances in a single playthrough, but possible to get either of them and the third). To a lesser extent, Heavy Dog (faced after Neutral-Dark Stage 4) and Blue Falcon (faced after True Dark Stage 5) are essentially the same boss, as well, only time-shifted 50 years because Neutral-Dark Stage 4 is a flashback level. You're probably more likely to see one of these bosses twice in a playthrough than to see all three of them in the same playthrough. [[note]]It is possible to see all three in the same playthrough by starting off with a Hero Mission, then doing two Dark missions and then another Hero Mission. This will take you to Hero Stage 2, Neutral-Dark Stage 4, and True Neutral Stage 5.[[/note]]

** Rouge gets in on this too. If you do Dark Westoplis then Hero Digital Circuit, then do all the hero missions after that, that pathway is called "For Love's Sake". If you do the normal Prison Island mission after Dark Westoplis and Hero Digital Circuit then the rest of the Hero missions, it's called "ThePowerOfLove". Granted, there is one normal mission in this one, but Shadow doesn't go dark after Rouge's influence either.
