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.

Dont buy this game at all, not until they have proporly updated the game itself. The worst thing that will happen to you is that it will not work on purchase, meaning you sunk some money on a bricked game. I tried using customer service but it just led to a dead end, hopefuly that wont happen to you

Great music, terrible story and awful gameplay.
I love 3D Sonic games but this one is just a mess.

I really can not see the appeal of this game. It is incredibly sloppy and poorly-designed, and seemingly has no polish applied at all. The audio mix alone is scandalous and should never have been released- I get the feeling SEGA either had a very unprofessional team working on this back at its orignal relase, or it was ridiculously rushed, or both. The core gameplay is barely functional.

To top it off, this port is atrocious, it barely works and required hours of research to get it running properly. Avoid, or play on another platform.

You might hate me for saying this, but I kinda like this game more than Sonic Adventure 2. One thing for sure is that theres TONS more sonic levels in the game, SA2 is just mostly the Knuckles/Rouge and Tails/Eggman levels, a hub world that works with Sonic's speed very well, and this one even keeps every kind of levels all organized in there own campaigns unlike the sequel (which I like very much).

Only legit complaint is Big's campaign. UGH! It's just fishing that barely even works. Luckly it's short though

Synopsis:
This is a very fun game, that will run on almost all modern hardware (if not all). It is pretty cheap here on Steam, and a game worthy to add to your collection. It may have aged a little poorly, and might have some glithes, but is still a very fun time. Heck, I have put 96 hours into this game since I got it back on December 2X, 2013. And don't think I am a nostalgia- blind knuckehead, as I had never played this game before I got it on Steam. Also, the cutscenes don't get too in the way, as there aren't too many of them, and they last an average of 30 seconds. And they are hilarious.

Pros:
+Fun, fast gameplay
+good level design
+Doesn't drag out stages or hub world (perfect size)
+Many fun playable characters
+Hilarious, cheesy cutscenes
+Fast load times
+Price

Cons:
-Poorly aged
-Loose controls at times
-Glitchy (especially with scripted sections)
-Big the Cat isn't very fun to play as
-Camera can be a pain sometimes

Final words:
Buy this game if you love platformers. Now.

I absolutley love this game. Many consider it the best sonic game ever. But i'll be honest, this PC port of the game is horrible. There are bugs EVERYWHERE.

I'll start with the Resolution. a recent update allows you to change the resolution beyond 720p. This sounds great, but it actually breaks many graphics. Mostly with the UI and HUD. Some things will appear WAY too small and sometimes even appears in the wrong area. Even worse though there are flickering and even spazzing glitches that happen regardless of the resolution. Graphics aren't the only problem tough.

Many sounds are also broken. Sometimes a sound won't play, even worse sometimes a sound won't STOP playing. I've especially had this issue in the chao garden when a chao goes swiming. Even when i get them out of the water the spashing sound plays on an endless loop. Twinkle park has volume issues as well. A lot of noises are either too loud or too quiet. You often can't even hear the music.

I've heard this game has slowdown issues as well, i haven't really had a problem, but maybe that's because i have a pretty good PC. But a heads up just in case.

Overall this really feels like a shoddy emulation rather than a true port. If you've played this game before and want a little nostalgia, you may be willing to handle it. But if you haven't played it before, i say skip it.

I love Sonic games, I have a soft spot even for the bad ones, but this is sometihng else. This one is not bad, it's incompetent. Terrible camera, glitches everywhere, unbeareable voice acting that is mostly out of sync. It's an insult to platforming, an insult to the Sonic legacy and I cannot recommend it to anybody. If you want to play Sonic Adventure get the Game Cube version, not this piece of junk.

I don't recall Sonic Adventure being this wonky in the movement (especially with a controller) and the camera being all over the place (even with auto camera off). At least the music's still cool.
