Sonic Heroes – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Fantasy Violence

Parents should know that this game's content is appropriate for children, although younger children might find it difficult. The game provides many hints to help players progress through each level (too many hints for experienced gamers), which will balance that out, particularly on the easy team mode.

Fans of Sonic may or may not like this game, depending on how forgiving they are of implementation flaws. The game is worth trying because it does have genuinely enjoyable parts, but sadly it won't be for everyone.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will be happy to know that all dialogue is subtitled. Although it's not always evident which character is speaking (names aren't indicated), this doesn't really affect gameplay or the hokey story, and in-game hints have matching text—but can be hard to follow when the action is heavy.
