* LoveItOrHateIt: Opinions vary from "Cool, if a bit forced", "So edgy that it's terrible", "Enjoyably forced", and "Okay, but not great".

* LoveItOrHateIt: Opinions vary While the game's tone and presentation is nigh-universally despised, the gameplay is polarizing instead. Some believe the game is perfectly playable, with level design promoting a mix of speed, platforming, and exploration as expected from "Cool, if a bit forced", "So edgy that it's terrible", "Enjoyably forced", the series and "Okay, but not great".usable controls and gunplay. Others consider it as big a problem as the tone, with slippery controls retained from ''Heroes'', repetitive level design, tedious missions, and poor design issues such as being forced to kill enemies of the opposite alignment on certain routes.



* SoOkayItsAverage: The gameplay pretty much averages out to being... adequate. The core gameplay works out well despite somewhat slippery controls, and the guns actually work with good auto-aim and decent damage. However, the game suffers from levels with repetitive design, along with missions that make the game even more repetitive.

* OlderThanTheyThink: This was the game to introduce skydiving mechanics, not ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed''. This is also the first game to involve parkour-esque wall-running mechanics as an expansion on the Triangle Jump, not ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld''. It's also the first game to feature a bo[[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed]] os [[VideoGame/SonicColours]] t [[VideoGame/SonicGenarations]] although in a differnt form, and you can only use it if you go the hero path.

** Sonic says he "wouldn't be caught dead" using a gun. As we all know, in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]'', while [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms they're lasers and such]], he can still [[HypocriticalHumor utilize a gun]]. ''VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames'' also has its share of shooting events.

PortingDisaster: This game was built from the same engine as ''Heroes'', and thus the [=PS2=] release of this game suffers from all of the same problems the [=PS2=] version of ''Heroes'' did.

* CompleteMonster: [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Black]] {{Doom|yDoomsOfDoom}} is [[BigBad the leader of the Black Arms]] and a [[KnightOfCerebus completely humorless]] EvilutionaryBiologist. Having [[AliensAreBastards visited the Earth]] for thousands of years, he made contact with Gerald Robotnik 50 years prior to the series, agreeing to a deal where a creation using Black Doom’s cells, the future Shadow the Hedgehog, would deliver the Chaos Emeralds so that the Black Arms can use Chaos Control to arrive on Earth and bring prosperity to humanity. Gerald realized once Doom left that he was lied to, as Black Doom intended to enslave the human race and use them as a [[ToServeMan food source]]. During the events of the game, he preaches about the [[KnightTemplar evils of humanity]] and how they don’t deserve to be free, claiming they would be better served as a [[ImAHumanitarian food source]] for the Black Arms, all while showing he has no regrets killing his own men or [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness throwing away his “son” when everything is finished]]. During the game, he sends his army to kill millions, manipulated Shadow by forcing him to relive Maria’s death, destroys an entire city--and most of his army--with the Eclipse Cannon, and spreads a gas that paralyzes Sonic and friends to make it easier for his offspring to eat them. [[{{Hypocrite}} Hypocritical]], ruthless and uncaring to even his own, Black Doom is [[VileVillainSaccharineShow among the worst]] the world of ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' has to offer.

* BaseBreaker: To elaborate, the base was already pretty broken over if Shadow's return in Heroes was a good thing or not. This game did nothing but add fuel to that fire. In fact, this game cemented Shadow as ''the'' most divisive character in the series bar none. To this day, fans are split on whether he is still a good character who's just been the victim of overexposure and bad writing, or a glorified Marty Stu who should have died after his debut and does not fit with the whimsical nature of the series.
