So I originally got this game when I was 3 or 4 for the SEGA Dreamcast, and I played the ♥♥♥♥ out of it for years, probably beat the game at least 30 times and loved every second of it, even Big The Cat. There is a fun variety of gameplay from each character and each story is unique, and its cool how they all interlock. Gamma's and Sonic's stories are the best in my opinion. Also, the soundtrack is AMAZING as you would expect from a sonic game. Fully recomended.

If you just realized that this game is on, you will immdiatly buy it due to a lot of peoples childhood. Ok we know Sonic is kinda ok but in his early years he was tied with Mario. Sonic Adventure was originally released in 1999 but got reworked in 2003 and my oh my, Sega really outdone them self cause this game is 1 of a lot of peoples childhood games back on the Gamecube.
This is the 1st Sonic game that you can play with more than 3 characters like Amy, Big the Cat (New) and E-103 "Gamma"(New).
As always Sonic,Tails and Knuckles is in this game as a playable character. Whats interesting about this game is that every character has a diffrence story and yet later join up aother characters story than leaves. Ill go over what kind of stages you do for every character.

Sonic: Get to the end of the stage
Tails: Beat Sonic to the end of the stage
Knuckles: Recover 3 pieces of the Master Emerald in every stage.
Amy: Get on a safety ballon while running away from a robot named ZERO (not Megaman X's Zero)
Big the Cat: Fish your friend Froggie out of the water.
E-103 "Gamma"- Kill as many robots as you can to get to the end of the stage.

There is also a Chao Garden which you can raise Chao and make (forced) them compete in races.
I give this game 8 out of 10 due to how short some of the characters story is and kinda boring espcially for Big the Cat where its a struggle to fish your friend, no matter how many upgrades you get, it still feels the same thing.

This is my favourite game of all time. For a game made in the early 2000s, the graphics, soundtrack and gameplay are exceptional. I remember playing this as a young child, it being the first major video game I ever played. It's very nostalgic for those who remember it; as I play, I normally exclaim 'I remember this!' and 'Oh, yeah, you were VERY difficult'. The game consists of 6 stories, each having a different length, so you can enjoy endless hours of fun! I recommend this greatly. 11/10

I had a good time on this game. Sonic Adventure DX is the 2003 version of Sonic Adventure (1999 on Dreamcast). This game proposes a new you look for almost all the characters, the current look for the Sonic Universe characters. Soundtracks are very good once again, the graphism are colorful without being so childish and the storyline is amazing. However, the gameplay is really hard to explain. You will have to play as the 6 game main characters which you will follow their stories, you have Sonic for Speed acts, Tails for the Race against an opponent , Knuckles for the Treasure Hunting acts, Amy for the Escape acts, Gamma E-102 for the Demoliton Time Trail acts and Big for [Huge drumbeats intensifies]....Fishing acts ͠° ͟ʖ ͡° .

The world is composed of two parts for each characters ; the acts and the open world which you can have acces to the Chao World and hug your tiny adorable Chao you proudly named Ronald Reagan. In this game, you also have a big load of mission and secondary objectives like the fact you can reach every emblem in the game and obtain a very special additional character. The new archivement are OK in terms of difficulty. The game is also not that hard but you could experience some disagreements with the camera.

...for the retro gamers.

The game got released in 2003, and the original on Dreamcast in 1999. So consider this game old.
Now it all depends of your age, if you are between 12-17 years old, I don't recommend you this unless as said on the title, if you are a retro gamer because your first game on a console was Call of Duty MW2 and when Sonic got released you were 3 years old so it explains the criticisms of the other useless reviews.

The game itself was a huge revolution and was one of the best Dreamcast games. And as every Sonic game, the camera is annoying, the voice acting and the motion capture are not the best points of it but, does a glitched camera and a bad voice acting ruins the game ? If it was bad acting in GTA I would consider.

Despite that, the game is pretty fun, various missions and mini games are available to extend the time of play though the game is quite short (3 hours to end the main Sonic story, but you have 7 chars stories, each is different and more or less shorter. With that you can do trials, 3 per level with each char + mini games and 60 missions throughout the main maps using all characters).
Finally, a 360 controller is highly recommended, or try to use x360e. But if you can buy this game you can buy a controller.

- This game is definitely one of the best games I ever played in my entire life. I can play it over and over remembering that when I played this game for the first time, I was 11 years old. I'm now 21. :D
