The story and game is the same way I remember it from years ago when I first discovered it (friends and people I knew back then were kind of ♥♥♥♥♥ to me for some reason. Saw them playing this and liked it and eventually got it for my Gamecube)
Graphics are a little better. I notice some graphics were changed which makes me a bit sad (got rings? is gone (likely because most people wouldn't get the reference now) and the ever so hilarious Chaos NOtwork bench ads are also gone,) and that covers most of the aesthetic changes anyways.
The Testing level is now far easier to reach in this game too (most notably via Eggman in his part of Cannon's Core).
Story wise, I still get slightly emotional at the end since Shadow doing a heroic sacrifice and remembering Maria's true wish snaps him out of his limbo of hatred for all of mankind.
Raising the chao is still as fun as ever, sad that the ever elusive and legit Tails chao is now impossible to get due to Phantasy Star Universe Episode 1 & 2 NOT being on Steam. Would be nice if Tails, Knuckles, and Amy chao were all added as FREE DLC. Would be a nice freebie to make the game funner.
