To save the world or destroy it? Shadow The Hedgehog picks up where Sonic Heroes left off. In the game Shadow awakens with amnesia. As he struggles with his dark past and tries to unveil who he really is a race of evil aliens called the Black Arms descend from the sky. "Shadow...As you can see, the day of reckoning will soon be here. Find the seven Chaos Emeralds and bring them to me as promised." somehow the leader, Black Doom, knows Shadow by name. With no other choice but to believe Black Doom's words Shadow sets off to find the Chaos Emeralds in hopes of unraveling his mysterious past. The choice is completely up to you: Stop Black Doom's army from destroying the planet or join them and unleash mass destruction. YOU decide!
