Let’s be honest here, the Sonic Series in 3D has been up and down. Lately Sega has nailed it back to back for once with Colors and Generations. The first real success, though, was Sonic Adventure 2 for the Dreamcast. Yes, Sonic is plagued with friends in this game, but the overworld nightmares of Sonic Adventure 1 is gone as are campaigns that suffered from abysmal game play (Big the Cat). Instead, the game offers three kinds of levels; platforming, rail shooter, and emerald hunting. Also returning are the Chao’s which have a lot more detail than the first game offered.
