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

Although I put the thumbs up on this, I have to emphasise that only 1/3 of this game is playable. The Eggman/Tails segments are mediocre at best, and the Knuckles/Rouge segments are only comparable to slowly drilling a toothpick through your nob. But that begs the question, are the Sonic/Shadow segments good enough to make up for the other 2/3's? ♥♥♥♥ yes. I am rock hard for the good parts of this game. However, normally this game wouldn't last you very long, with only 1/3 being good and all. Sonic adventure 2 excels with the return of chaos.

not the blue blobby ♥♥♥♥er from adventure 1, but those cute little bobble head things. I want to see them grow up, and succeed in their little meaningless virtual lives. I am their father, and although they are not real, my feelings for them certainly are. I've replayed metal harbour so many times that I know it better than I know my own home, all for these lil beautiful ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s.

My favourite chao is called Horbo. He wears a skull on his head and is destined for great things.

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

There are a handful of glitches in this game, but the nostalgia keeps bringing me back for more. It's fun.

It's a fantsastic game, but lately, whenever I try to launch it, the game crashes and I'm forced to restart my PC. It was working fine just a few months ago, so I'm not sure what the issue is.

EDIT: Found a fix, I just use windowed mode, it crashes on fullscreen. Game runs flawlessly at 1080p anyway (unless I'm recording gameplay), so not a huge problem.

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.
