I actually feel satisfied with pretty much all of them. They're quick, but none of them are boring. They have good action and they show off the characters very well.

The issue overall is fantastic, just like the last two. Sonic Heroes was an unexpected surprise, and a welcome one. Everything really feels like a living, breathing world filled with vibrant characters and places and stories. The story's just a tournament and fairly straightforward, but there's more than enough little twists and character moments that it never feels dull. The gags are hitting, the excitement is high, and there's so many little details that every page is a joy. Ironically, I'm not even sure I want to go back to the Freedom Fighters when it's over. They come off very blase in comparison.

I'm rather confused about Casino Parks location. I always assumed it was part of the larger 'Grand Metropolis' city-scape. Now it's located in a Empire City, a non-Heroes local? Seems odd to have such a drastic change in placement.

I can partially agree with you penguin, but the fact of them blasé is only due to not having a moment where you can see the characters be themselves. The universe issue proves they can be good characters and don't need help with Sega characters pushing them. The reason for it I can guess is that most of the book is save the citizen, find the emerald and temples. Which, unfortunately character definition could not be put in when you had to set up the new setting along with it.

Nothing about Heroes locations make any sense.

Heroes is the 3D game that runs off Genesis game logic for levels the most; "Here's some levels that look cool. Get through them." It's the only main one which doesn't give any spacial reference for where everything is (even if the others contradict other games, they do try to connect the levels within their own story), so you can literally put them anywhere and it'd still technically be just as valid as any other arrangement.

That was kind of my point. The locations make no sense so you can put them anywhere like the 2D ones.

It does make sense since Breezie in the cartoon did hook up with Robotnik Jr. Although in the cartoon she was a robot and not organic like she is in the comics.

Has it been confirmed she is flesh and blood or not? I don't have 270 yet.

The backstory given makes her seem organic, but Ian's playing coy with whether it's an actual confirmation or not given that it's from the perspective of her media empire.

I'm assuming she's a robot, otherwise there wouldnt be much of a point to Ian pleading the 5th every time someone asks why she's organic. I would prefer if she was organic, though

Did Sonic skip the semi-finals? I mean, I guess it can just get passed off as Breezie messing with the bracket again, but it kind of threw me for a loop.

Anyway, yeah. Like the last two parts, this was a lot of fun. Loved the humor in it, and I liked that we got a moment of Sonic acting like a big brother to Tails again. It was also pretty nice seeing Breezie Honey with some actual fighting skills, because of the whole Fighting Vipers thing.

If there's anything that did bug me, it's that the commercials and cutaways (while funny) sometimes felt a little too jarring and oddly placed, but it wasn't a big deal.

Not yet. If it's going to be brought up at all, it'll probably be next issue.


EDIT: Thanks, Weeg.
