Part 1 Freedom vs Metal:

The game starts in Mobotroplis. Sonic and the Freedom Fighters are enjoying a rare break from Eggman since his Death Egg Mk. ll battle station was forced to land close to an abondoned chemical plant. All of a sudden Eggman appears and tells the heroes that he is taking over Westside Island and has all electronics on the island. So Sonioc and the Freedom Fighters have to rush into action to save the day, while Nicole goes into the computer world to save it from Eggman. The Freedom Fighters make their way to Wood Zone and find Metal Tails attacking Knotwhole. They attack it but it dodges their attacks and flees. The Freedom Fighters then follow. Later in Wood Zone, the Freedom Fighters get ambushed by Metal Tails and fight. After defeating Metal Talis, an Egg Mobile being piloted by an Egg Swat appears with an Egg Capsule and also Metal Amy. The Egg Mobile with the Egg Capsule and Metal Amy flee to a Warp Ring and the Freedom Fighters follow (the level where they are is 3 parallel pathways in the sky made of Chaos Energy). After defeating Metal Amy the Freedom Fighters are on the ground and smash the Egg Capsule revealing Cream,Cheese,Big,and Froggy. Everyone is happy to see them free and they all decide to go to Chemical Plant and find Eggman. Later on the Freedom Fighters are in Emerald Hill and see that Metal Knuckles is leading Badniks to attack the area. Sonic and the Freedom Fighters rush into attack. Later after defeating Metal Knuckles, Metal Sonic opens a Warp Ring right under the Freedom Fighters and they fall right into Metropolis Zone. After going through the most dangerous area on the island, Metropolis Zone, the Freedom Fighters find the Tails Doll with a horde of Badniks. After fighting the Tails Doll, it transforms into it's monsterous form. After an intense battle Eggman is in disbelieve that the Tails Doll failed in defeating the Freedom Fighters. Metal Sonic throws gas bombs and the Freedom Fighters appear in Wing Fortress. After traveling throw the airship they find Metal Sonic. After another intense battle, Wing Fortress lands into Chemical Plant. The Freedom Fighters think its over but a huge earthquake happens and reveals that the Death Egg has relaunched... Eggman laughs and allows the Freedom Fighters to traverse the Death Egg and they find Silver Sonic. They fight the giant Sonic bot. After the fight Big throws the damaged Silver Sonic into the wall and it completely smashes into pieces. When about to attack Eggman, the Freedom Fighters see that Eggman is attacking Central City!

Part 2 Eggman vs G.U.N:

Shadow leads Team Dark and G.U.N. to battle but Eggman has repaired the Metal Series to some degree and they are helping the other badniks and Egg Soilders terroize the citizens but the Freedom Fighters appear and help out G.U.N. When the Freedom Fighters and G.U.N. confront the Metal Series, they use the Krudzu Hybrid Hydra to fuse together. After defeating the Metal Fusion, Sonic and Shadow are showing off as they defeat Egg Soilders and Badniks. Sally insists they stop and be serious but Shadow makes Sonic release his ego and they begin showing off again. Before they can both smash a Spinner, a horde of Egg Camels appear. Sonic is jaw dropped on how many Egghead sent. After managing to defeat the Egg Camels, Eggman uses the Death Egg to shoot at the city. The Egg Soilders retreat and the Badniks flee. The G.U.N. soilders help the remaining citizens that haven't fled while the Freedom Fighters and Team Dark gather to somehow stop the Death Egg. The Death Egg  just launches 5 huge Egg Capsules and leaves. The Egg Capsules release a bunch of battle armor and Regina Ferrum, the Egg Boss of the United Federation Legion, uses her Technomancy and fuses the armor together with the Krudzu and goes inside it. After the Boss Battle, Regina and the Egg Soilders retreat. Team Dark say if Sonic needs their help, they'll come(They can be selected in levels after this but don't appear in cutscenes like everyone else further on. Also only one character is seen in each level).

Stage Enemies


Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic's gameplay is very simiular to that of Generations and Lost World. He's really just the average Sonic we all know.

Miles "Tails" Prower

Tails's gameplay is an upgraded version of himself from Sonic Adventure. He is faster and can perform almost all of Sonic's skills.

Sally Acorn

Sally's gameplay isn't super fast, she can run but of course nowhere close to Sonic. Her attacks are usually punches and kicks and she uses her acrobatics to her advantage.

Rotor Walrus

Rotor isn't fast either but his attacks focus on acrobatic type skills and he's quite the heavy hitter able to grab badniks and throw them into others. If you need a heavy hitter in a boss battle, be sure to select him.
