Carl Williams writes, "Sonic is quite an enigma as far as company/console mascots go. Starting life on the Sega Genesis and hitting every sega console ever released with at least one game, Sonic only lead one console at launch- the Sega Dreamcast. Sonic Adventure was also a unique title in the Sonic series since it wa the first fully 3D adventure for Sega’s blue hedgehog. The mainstays are all here, Doctor Eggman (Robotnik for us old schoolers in the crowd), Tails and more that were new to the series made their first appearances here. The speed the Sonic games were known for was, mostly, kept in tact with the transition to 3D."
