Bought this game for my Gamecube in the early noughties and put hundreds of hours into it, when I found it on steam I knew that it was something that I had to own in my steam library.

Before I upgraded to my current rig I was gaming on a Dell laptop with a measly 2.1ghz AMD processor (it was very weak kneed) and I saw nothing but 60fps, never saw a CTD and had it running like butter.

The level design and camera leave a lot to be desired but given that this game was released in 2001, I think those pitfalls can be ignored.

One of the best sonic games and one of the first video games I ever played as a kid. This is a good port of the rerelease, however, it's a shame that it uses the gamecube chao gardens. The dreamcast chao gardens were definitely more appealing hands-down. That's pretty much the only criticism I have for it. Online multiplayer would've been nice, but I didn't expect Sega to do that much anyway. Otherwise, it's a solid port of the gamecube version.

Ah, this game brings back memories. It was my favorite game on the Sega Dreamcast and I couldn't wait to get my grubby hands on it!!! A great 3D platformer, tons and tons of replay value. One of my personal favorites is playing with ( i mean against ) friends to race to get 3 emeralds first. Pumpkin Hill Anyone?? And lets not forget everyones favorite, the Chaos! Have up to 3 Chao gardens, raise good and evil Chao, and get lost tweaking your favorite little monsters into an all but endless combination of animal options. Oh, and once you manage to get that perfect little devil Chao, sit back and watch him destoy in the Chao races. TEN OUT OF TEN STARS!! IF YOU ARE A SONIC FAN AND SOMEHOW HAVE MISSED THIS, IT IS A MUST HAVE! TREAT YO' SELF!

FOOL, YA FOOL! ~~ kILLERbEE ~~

Have fun and game on,
Sam

I used to have this on the GameCube years back, and I still stand by the fact that the Chao Garden is the best part of the game. It's too bad you can't connect to the GBA game to get some of the different eggs now. Side note--good luck getting all 180 emblems. Some of the timed challenges are next to impossible (Shadow's highway mission).

Okay, so two quick things to mention from what I've seen in other reviews:

One: This is NOT the revolutionizing 3D Sonic Game that came out on the Gamecube. This is the sequel to the TRUE revolutionizing 3D Sonic Game on the DREAMCAST, which was by the same name without the 2.

Two: All the DLC does is unlock the bonus feature of 2P battle that was introduced in the re-make on the Gamecube, so there's nothing really lost by not getting it unless you have two controllers and want to play with somebody else in this glitch-fest.

Anyway, as for my quick little review. While the game itself is stellar, or should be, the PC port is a hunk of dung that I'm glad I didn't buy for it being Sonic Adventure 2. I luckily got it as part of a bigger bundle, and honestly the levels and controls are extremely glitchy on this port and I find myself dying many times because of hitting invisible walls, having my speed inverted, falling through ground, or just plain having my screen turn black for 10 seconds while the video dies despite the game continuing on, which ends up desyncing the audio/video.

As much as I really, truly want to recommend this game, after playing a little bit of it, the glitchiness is just too much to handle. I'm going to try playing some more later, but honestly it's hard to play a game you love when the mechanics of it are as broken as this. If at all possible, play the Gamecube port, and/or the Gamecube port of Sonic Adventure (DX). I'm honestly not sure if it's worth it to play this if you've never played Sonic Adventure (2/battle) before since I feel it will leave a terrible impression upon the two games.

tl;dr
The game itself is amazing, but the engine is broken on PC. People who think this is the ground breaking original 3D game are ill-informed.

You shouldn't be looking at a review for this game.
Seriously, it's that good.

P.S. Sonic Boom is a steaming pile of sh*t compared to this.

I still have the original Gamecube game which I still play from time to time & have sunken in so many hours within the 15 years I have had it. So I know the game off by heart. For this review, I use keyboard controls.

Short story: GET THIS FOR THE CHAO GARDEN!


--PRO's--

- Chao Garden
- Music
- Childhood memories
- Controller supported
- Controls can be changed


--CON's--

- Tails/Eggman have slow/laggy movement
- Knuckles/Rouge has camera issues (may be down to Keyboard controls)
- Chao Karate & 2 Player Battle is cut into DLC (Greedy Shods)
- Local Multiplayer (No Online Mode)


The camera issues don't bother me, I understand due to using a keyboard that the camera will not be as great and to be honest, is just the same as the GC one. It is just a port, no real improvement. But Tails has missing animation frames and seems to stop before turning which is an issue, specially when you fight Eggman at the end of HERO story due to you are so slow. Same goes for Eggman, making their levels appear to have frame-rate issues.

Even though the tags say "Multiplayer", it is local multiplayer only, you need a mod to race others online. Local multiplayer is not good either you share the same keyboard making it cramped, bad idea there SEGA.

Only get this game when it is on sale or if you really miss the Chao Garden & don't have the original game anymore. Otherwise give it a miss for now as it is not worth the full asking price.
