Seriously, it's a good game. Really. Yes, things came out of left-field, but the story of Shadow is a good one.

The homing attack mechanic suffered, but the rest of the game could shine once you got used to it. Also, the SPECIAL WEAPONS!!

Now, I know people obsess over that one line. It wasn't even that bad though. I mean sure, there was more emphasis on the word DAMN than any other word in the sentence. It was necessary though!!

He REALLY wanted that emerald.

If you excuse that ONE line, the dialogue is fine. Really fine.

Another thing, OVER 256 BRANCHING STORIES!!! I mean, even though the endings were just a handful of endings, to have 256 paths to get an ending? THAT is good work. Really good work.

Or was it 257?

Now Doom? Doom wasn't a bad villain. Far from the best one either, but he served his purpose well. His role in Shadow's story was decent and not overbearing. His personality fit him well.

Doom was better here than Eggman was. In this one case, Eggman seemed like an accessory to the story. His particular arc wasn't bad, but didn't seem to add too much to the overall atmosphere, at least to me.

It "made sense," but Eggman was the least important threat in the entire game.

Meh. I remember actively playing Shadow the Hedgehog during its initial release date. It was fun for what it was back in its heyday, but replaying it now, it feels so badly executed. Shadow is slippery as all hell, which is why I'd constantly shoot in mid-air in order to reset the momentum and prevent myself from falling off the stage. And Shadow had far too many pitfall stages for its own good.

Guess the game fell to the curse of being a bit outdated. Good that you enjoyed it though, as it certainly was a fun game.
