* FranchiseKiller: It is not really deniable that the negative reception that this game received severely, and irreversibly, harmed both the prestige and the reputation of the Sonic franchise. While Sonic games are still being developed, the franchise is now a shadow of what it once was.

* CanonDiscontinuity: The game's ending [[spoiler:erases the storyline from the Sonic canon]], though ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' renders this questionable. On a slightly smaller scale, you'd be wise to forget Blaze was in this game with a completely different backstory.

* BoringButPractical: Silver's Psycho Shock is very useful for dealing with crowds of enemies; it can be done fairly quickly, has an area of effect that stuns weaker enemies (which allows them to be turned into projectiles), and has a more reliable range than the basic melee attack.

''[[RecycledTitle Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' was an attempt by Creator/{{Sega}} to remedy the PolygonCeiling that the ''Sonic'' series had chronically struggled with, such as [[CameraScrew camera issues]] and occasionally wonky controls and physics. Alas, by rushing the game which had [[TroubledProduction no shortage of development issues to begin with]] (see [[Trivia/SonicTheHedgehog2006 the Trivia page]] for details) -- out [[ChristmasRushed for a Christmas release]] on two advanced, brand-new consoles, what consumers got instead was a ''very'' ObviousBeta that not only failed to address these problems, but in many cases made them worse than ever. The controls were slipperier than ever, the camera was even more offensive, the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading loading times]] were some of the worst to ever hit a console game, and hundreds of [[GameBreakingBug glitches]] that should have been axed during playtesting were left intact in the finished game - and this is all to say nothing of the notoriously convoluted IdiotPlot.

* TheStoryThatNeverWas: [[spoiler: The final cutscene involves one last bit of time travel, in which where Sonic and Elise extinguish the flame of Solaris, thereby preventing the lab accident that set the entire plot in motion. As the rest of the game wasn't very good, Sonic fans didn't particularly mind that it ended by erasing itself from the series timeline.]]
