Sonic’s debut, fully three-dimensional escapade turns twenty today, and upon release, critics raved over it, calling it one of the greatest games of all time.
I recently played this game again, and it's still great fun to play, Big's levels are still awful though. It's not the Froggy catching part that is so bad, it's the harder levels that come later. Catching those big fish is so boring and frustrating. Take out the Big the Cat story, and this game is a 10/10 for it's time from me.
I last played it on ps3, lol I fell through the ground on the 1st stage. Other then that and few small things still holds up.
This game is/was a solid 9 out of 10 for sure!
This game was the reason I wanted a dreamcast
Sonic Adventure 2 Battle for Gamecube is the best Sonic game to date. Just saying.
Rose-tinted-glasses or not, it's a fun game. Definitely jankey, but still fun. I'd say it sits within a tangible goldilocks zone that may be different depending on the person. One where on a personal level, I was still a young kid (7/8yrs) & loved Sonic through the Megadrive era. But also where gaming technology was rapidly advancing. The Dreamcast, the graphics, the music, the oncoming Millenium. It's the memories of playing it at that point in time that make me look back so fondly on it. And the soundtrack is still superb.
