You know, Shadow the Hedgehog is an interesting game, because gameplay wise, it functions perfectly fine. They’re aren’t a lot of bugs in the game. Gameplay is smooth enough, and everything works as it is programmed too. There are varied levels and the cut scenes aren’t terrible looking.
The only real big issue with the game, is every single design choice that went into it. The vehicles are too slow, the game is laughably and pointlessly edgy. Regardless of which faction you follow they all attack you, there are only 3 final bosses, and 3 mid-bosses. But through the course of the game you have to fight them a grand total of like, 10 times. The levels are just designed so badly, and the plot is all over the place. And the fact that you have to play through the game 10 times, very often going through the same paths because each final level has 2 bosses. One of the levels literally has the same boss for the good and evil routes.
Like, all the resources to make an actually good game were there.They just made every wrong choice when designing it which led too one of the most laughably bad games possible
