Is Sonic Adventure good or bad? Let's vote

Postby Xivyide » Tue Nov 03, 2015 4:10 pm

I have played Sonic Adventure ever since I was a little kid and I believe it to the best Sonic game.
However after watching a little of three separate playthroughs, I have some doubt about the quality. IMO, the cutscenes are so awkward and definitely the 2nd worst part of the game because Big the Cat's campaign is trash. The game also suffers from an unequal amount of levels between characters with Sonic at 10 and Amy at 3, making the game awfully short. However, the levels are solid and the challenge to get all of the emblems is fun to do(Still haven't done it though :lol: )
So, what do you think about Sonic Adventure?
EDIT-To clarify, I have voted "Good".

i think it's good, but adventure 2 is repetitive and boring. some missions are good but most are not enjoyable. i liked all of sonic adventure 1's character plots. not really of nostalgia because i first played it on an emu a few years ago then dreamcast collection on 360.

The ONLY reason it is good, is because of the simple fact that for the time it was beautiful, other then that.. meh.. there was too much stopping of forward motion to justify it being amazing..

It is the adventure bits that drag it down - I find it painful to have to work through the bits that open up the next level. It could be vastly improved if all the story and exploring were removed and you just picked a stage and got going.

It's okay, it's not great it's not terrible it's just okay. There's certainly some fun to be had in its typical Sonic level design, its great soundtrack and the Chao garden but the pointless hub worlds, the cringe worthy cut scenes, the typically Dreamcast camera controls and that fucking cat are a hell of a lot to ignore.

And to clarify, the game isn't long at all (the main story will take you about 9 hours to plow through) but with the repeated levels, boss fights, cutscenes and the pointless hub worlds it feels like it overstays its welcome.

If there was ever a game that needed bug-sweep, a fresh coat of paint and a general overhaul, it was Sonic Adventure. But it's still good.

It's a terrible game and the second one is mediocre at best.

It's a sad indictment of how far the series has fallen that so many Sonic fans seem to regard these games so fondly, and I say this as someone who grew up with a Mega Drive, played Sonic 1 as my first ever game, and mostly preferred Sonic to Mario in the 16-bit era.

I will say good, despite my general thought being that I think 3D Sonic games are mostly bad, but this one I really enjoyed.

The game mechanics are really fucked up and can get annoying sometimes, the camera also sucks sometimes, in tight places generally, but I think the story and characters development was nice, I finished all stories except the one with Big The Cat because I got bored.

Its the only fully 3D Sonic game I consider decent, I played Adventure 2, Heroes, Shadow The Hedgehog, Sonic Unleashed, all sucked for my taste, altough Generations deserves a special mention, it was kinda nice (and awfully short).

btw, my favourite Sonic "3D" game is Sonic 3D Blast, I think its very underappreciated, both the Megadrive and Saturn versions were worth the time I gave them.

I think it is a good game, but they could do even better at the time. The camera sometimes trolls you, but most of the time worked good for me. Big the Cat is the worst character ever and his story suck hard.
IMHO, Sonic Adventure 2 is better than the 1st in many aspects. I really enjoyed these two games, but my favorite is SA2 and I played it a lot (about 90 hours+).

Terrible camera, otherwise a great game.
Always enjoyed SA1 way more than SA2. Never understood everyone who went crazy over SA2. I mean, I enjoyed it and all, just not as much as the first game.
