This is a game that holds a special place in my childhood. It was the first sonic game I had played (My parents were nintendo freaks so I didn't even know sega was a thing until this game). It is one of the best and probably one of hte last good 3D sonic games.

This game features 2 story modes and a third unlockable story after completing the first two. It also includes a multiplayer mode in which you get to play against your friends in 3 gameplay types all based on the story mode levels. You can at any time revisit story mode levels and complete them again with different objectives than your first time around like collecting a certain number of rings or under a time limit.


One of the other major features is the Chao Garden. You get to raise these little blue creatures called Chao and they have their own stats that go up by feeding them items and animals found in the levels. Once you have raised your chao long enough you can put it into a race or a karate tournament.

The final thing I can say is go ahead and get the battle DLC for the extra 3 bucks. It gives you a lot of extra content which includes the multiplayer modes. 13 dollars is a damn good deal for this game

Sonic Adventure 2 is one of the main reason's I got steam. This game has a very high frame rate and runs great with mods and texture packs. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves Sonic or action games

Very well made port of Sonic Adventure 2.

Controller support works flawlessly.

You get to choose from two story lines (Hero / Dark), which each feature three core gameplay elements:
1. Speed levels
In these your goal is to get to the end of the stage extremely fast.
2. Mech levels
In these you blast your way to the exit.
3. Search levels
In these your goal is to search emerald pieces.

There is also a place called the Chao garden, where you get to raise pets with whom you can play a lot of minigames.

There are some minor issues where the camera can become a problem and cheap deaths may occur.

This was before the memes,8bit nostalgia, terrible consoles, and the wave of shooter games - and when playing Sonic games wasn't attributed with a fanbase of a bunch of autistic, circlejerking perverts who cross it with My Little Pedophile / Undertail / FNAF every chance they get

Finally, I can play chao garden on my computer.

Worth the buy but does have a weird glitch in the first level of the hero story.

Although with all the flaws in this game (cough*Cannon's Core*cough), I have to say, this is one of my favorite Sonic games. Would highly recommend.

Better than Xbox 360

Even tho you need a controller to play (for better experience) its still is better than any other version out there (graphics are better, gameplay is smooth...)

I played the heck out of this game on the Gamecube back in the day, but I'm sad to report that it doesn't really hold up. The Sonic/Shadow stages are as good as ever, but the Tails/Robotnik and Knuckles/Rouge stages are just terrible. Couple that with the hilariously bad story and voice acting and it's probably best avoided unless you're indulging your nostalgia.

That first level, though, is one of my favorite moments in gaming.
