1. Review

Well they've done it.  Sonic Team has finally created a game to remember.
And it's their first game on multiple systems (GCN, PS2, and X-Box).
Sonic Heroes is about 4 teams of three characters to a team.  12 characters in 
all.
Check the next section for more info.

2. The Teams

TEAM SONIC

Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles.  The moderate team.
I figure most gamers will probably start with these cool characters before 
working 
on anyone else.

TEAM DARK

Shadow, Rouge, and Omega.  The hardest team.
It turns out that Shadow, who everybody thought died after Sonic Adventure 2, 
is 
actually alive.  Pro: Better and badder than ever before.  Con: Lost his memory.

TEAM ROSE

Amy, Cream (and Cheese), and Big.  The simplest team.
These guys have nothing to do with the story, if it weren't for Eggman nicking 
Chocola (Cheese's best friend), and Froggy.

TEAM CHAOTIX

Espio, Charmy, and Vector.  Quite a hard team.
These guys are from Knuckle's Chaotix.  In Sonic Heroes, they're a crack 
detective 
agency.

3.5. Beating The Stages

Allright this is a new area, made to help you get through those tougher stages.
Here we go!

SEASIDE HILL
 What?  You can't get through THIS stage??  Then you're absolutely crap at this 
game - go and buy a 2nd grade game or something.
This stage is fairly easy - even on Super Hard Mode.

OCEAN PALACE
This is good for those who want something a little tougher than Seaside Hill 
(unless you're the moron who couldn't get past it).
This stage is still easy, even for Team Chaotix.
Switch to your power character often, because there are large fans located 
here and there that need the power character to use.

GRAND METROPOLIS
Another easy stage.  Plenty of speed, so your speed character should be the 
default one for this stage.  This is the first stage where you'll encounter rails, 
so practice on them.

POWER PLANT
Okay, now the going gets tough.  Don't expect lots of speed areas in this stage.  
I suggest sticking with your power character.  There are plenty of fights here, 
and more often you need to destroy a group of enemies to continue.
About halfway through, you'll come across red balls of heat.  They hurt so try to 
avoid them.

CASINO PARK
This stage can be remarkably exciting, since there are many pinball tables 
around, and it is possible to collect 200 rings or more here.
You will come across a forcefield that leads to a higher VIP room.
To get inside you need to activate a switch on the pinball table you just came 
off of.  Lousy, isn't it.

BINGO HIGHWAY
This is mostly just rolling around.  You'll find that the game BINGO appears.  
Just collect circles with numbers on them.  When you get all (1-9) you get a 
nice ring bonus.

RAIL CANYON
This stage is for those who like rails and need to practice more.  Don't worry 
though - you'll get plenty of practice here!
But because it's mostly rails, it is very easy to fall, so keep your balance and 
your eyes ahead.

BULLET STATION
Less rails and more puzzles.  Please note the trains you meet, and even the 
one you board.  Also, you have to be wary of cannons that blow you to a new 
area of the stage.

HANG CASTLE
The thing that all people notice is that this stage goes upside-down.
That can be very strange when you fall.....upwards!
The pumpkin head ghosts will do you no harm, but don't run into them.  
Bounce on their heads to defeat them.
Prepare to fly often in this level.

MYSTIC MANSION
Okay, you'll see massive robots here.  Jump up with the power character and 
throw your pals at it's head.  If you do no damage, let it whirl around with its 
hammer, and it'll shake.  Hit it then, then when it falls, attack its head.
The trolleys are tough because you need to dodge traps you find, so heed your 
friends advice when to jump!

FROG FOREST
This stage introduces flowers.  Use your speed character to create a whirlwind 
and hop on it.  You can use the control stick to move around while flying on that 
thing.  Get close to a giant frog to activate rain.  That will open up the path 
ahead.

LOST JUNGLE
This stage is very similar to the last one, except for black frogs that can 
sometimes stop your way ahead.  Watch out.

EGG FLEET
Look out below.  The big flying robots are here.  Omega knows about these.
Just attack it with your speed character (tap A repeatedly) and observe the light 
show.

FINAL FORTRESS
Ah, very tough. My advice is that whenever you see a choice of movement, always
take the high road. Usually it means less having to deal with giant robots.

4. 2-P Mode

Got a friend?  A pen pal?  How about an annoying sibling?  Then 2-P Mode is 
for you!
You need emblems to unlock all modes.  After every 20, a new one is 
unlocked.

ACTION RACE

Both teams need to reach the goal as fast as possible.  Here's a tip:  Build up 
your 
Team Blast.  No matter how far away the opponent is, they'll get hit.  The best 
times to do this are when they hit a jump panel.

BATTLE

First team to knock the other off the stage wins.  Here's a tip:  If one or both 
team mates have fallen off, then use Team Blast.  Not only will it hit the 
opposing 
team, but it'll bring your fallen team back.

SPECIAL STAGE

Both teams need to catch the Chaos Emerald first.  Here's a tip: Use dash 
often.

RING RACE

Collect more rings than your opponents.  Here's a tip: Focus on collecting a 
bunch 
of rings, then attack your opponents so they lose their rings.  Remember Team 
Blast.

BOBSLED RACE

Be the first bobsled to win.  Here's a tip: Collect rings.  They'll increase your 
speed.

QUICK RACE

The goal ring is in the middle of a course.  You and the other team are on 
either 
sides.  You get it.  Here's a tip: Check ACTION RACE's Here's a tip.

EXPERT RACE

ACTION RACE, mark two.  The stages aren't shorter, easier versions but the 
real 
thing.  Here's a tip: Don't fall.

5. Secrets

Remember those keys in the cages?  Use your power person to break open 
the cages.  
Keep the key in hand, and don't get hit, or risk losing the key.  ONLY collect the 
key on the stage where a boss battle follows.  In those stages, you need to 
collect 
the CHAOS EMERALD.  If it is the stage that follows AFTER a boss battle, 
well...that's more of a practice.  Do the practice ones to earn lots of 1-UPS.

When you:

1. Collect all chaos emeralds
2. Complete each team's story

Then check 1-P Mode for the last boss.......

When you:

1. Defeat the last boss
2. Complete all extra missions on 1-P challenge mode (with an `A` ranking on 
every 
one)

Then Super Hard mode has been unlocked........

Okay, about Team Chaotix, their missions are uh, abundantly different from the 
others.  Usually you just need to get to the finish in the shortest time possible.
Team Chaotix offers more, variety, like collecting stuff (Seaside Hill), rescuing 
little lost Chaos (Ocean Palace), roundin' up rings (Casino Park)or just fighting 
(Grand Metropolis).
