Great for a 3d sonic game. chao garden keeps you attached long after the story mode. but they should fix the truck glitch on city escape. great early era 3d game way worth the modest price.

A game I REALLY loved!

+) More characters to play as.
+) Cool speed, emerald hunting and bullet combo stages.
+) Upgrades which will help you on other levels.
-) Every character is the same thing but just different models.
-) Kinda hard stages IF you forget all the upgrades which is needed on the hard stages.

But I'll rate this game a 10/10 though!
Highly recommended!

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.

If ypu liked Sonic Adventure 2 on the Dreamcast or Gamecube then you're going to enjoy the port. I wouldn't recommend it to newcommers because there will be no nostalgia to shield you from the bugs. Chao World more than makes up for it though.

This is my new favorite Sonic game, it's fast paced with Sonic, puzzling with Tails, and stupid with Knuckles, it's perfect!

Awesome game for those who remember it back in the day.The Chao Garden definitely adds alot of replay value to the game along with finding all the upgrades and doing every mission with the highest rank. If you're a sonic fan you'll love this its one of my favorites from back in the day! If you're not a sonic fan you'll probably not like it so why are you even know why you're on this page? :)

Though this game may be old, I completely recommend it. There aren't many good 3D Sonic games, but this one is one of those rare few that not just is great, but transends age.

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.

I remember when I was 12 years old and I rented this movie from the local public library. I used to watch it religiously, every day when I would get home from school I would pop the disk into the DvD player and just sit there watching the movie on repeat for hours. But I knew that it couldn't last forever I knew that one day I would have to return the DVD to the library. One day when I got home from school my mom said to me "sacul, I got a call from the library and that sonic DVD is overdue we have to return it today". I said "NO, mom I can't return the DVD" my mom responded "what did you scratch the disk or something??” I said "Hell NO mom do you honestly think I would do anything to harm this dvd" my mom said "don't talk to me like that" I said “I’ll talk to you however I want ♥♥♥♥♥". my mom gasped and smacked me in the face I fell to the ground my mom said "that movie has been a bad influence on you I’m going to the library to return it immediately" she walked over to the dvd player where the dvd was currently playing and was going to press the eject button but, before she could there was a blue blur the flew out from the TV and push my mom on to the floor. I knew who it was and I knew he would put an end to the injustice my mom was committing. My mom said "what the heck was that" the Blue blur responded with " I am the fastest thing alive I am protector of all living things that cry out in misery I am sonic the hedgehog and I am a nightmare to you". My mom said "I'm calling the police" sonic said "you're too slow" the vanished for a millisecond then reappeared holding the house phone. He crushed the house phone in his hand and said "try to keep up!” My mom screamed and ran into the kitchen. Sonic raced after her and I followed. My mom grabbed a kitchen knife and said "I don't know who you are or what you are but I'm going to stab if you don't get out of my house right now!!!!!” Sonic said "don't tell me what to d-" as he was talking he was interrupted by my mom's knife. It slashed him across his Achilles tendon. Sonic sad "NO NOW I CAN'T GO FAST". My mom said "I know and I’m going to put an end to you right now" sonic mumbled "YOU ♥♥♥♥♥'. My mom put her right foot forward and charge toward sonic she had the knife against her stomach with the blade pointing outward in the direction of Sonic’s heart. I knew I had to stop this because if I didn't sonic would surely die. I leaped forward in front of my mom. The blade went straight into my throat. My mom yelled "OH MY GOD" blood shot out of my throat and I fell. As I lay on the ground awaiting my eminent death I feel a strange sense of contempt within my demise. I knew my death would be for a good cause, FOR SONIC.

It's a pretty good platformer, but doesn't live up to the old Sonic games IMO. For example "Sonic the Hedghehog" which is a pretty old 2D Sonic platformer, but that game was my childhood and I loved that game. There are a lot of bugs and this game needs to be fixed asap, I hardly could recommend it just because of bugs and glitches. If there was no glitches or bugs this would be a good game but still not amazing. It still has its problems, bugs or not, some stages REALLY have their problems like Knuckle's and Rouge's stages are frustrating and horrible. Audio acting and lip syncing REALLY sucks, cutscenes are horrible. Also the Chao Garden is awesome.

P.S. I may have a few hours on record but I have played this game on another account and another computer and have much more hours.
