Takashi Iizuka on Sonic Heroes Original Soundtrax:
Sonic Heroes is an ambitious game that freshly introduced the all-new system known as the Team Action to the high speed action so far. Getting through this new action in which the 3 characters who have different abilities corporate and develop, and through the adventures of the 12 heroes, I would be glad if the people who have played it could actually feel the importance and power of the word “corporation.” And contrary to the new system, the essence as a game inherits a lot of concepts of the original Sonic. It’s about the fun worldview reflected on gameplay as the backbone, and the game sound for producing that fun. I think I can say that Sonic Heroes is another evolution lineage of high speed action born through the tradition of such series and the “corporation” of the new system.
