    A lack of polish in levels, badly acted plotlines and unnecessary adventure fields between core levels.

The game has revolutionized the series with its new look, new and expanded gameplay, groundbreaking visuals compared to older games, a decent change to the music, and a well developed storyline that revolves around each and every character with their own role in the storyline. The only main complaint is Sega's lack of work on the PC port you are gonna have to search up some fixes for the resolution since Sega was too lazy to do an actual decent port of the game. Other than the resolution and window size mistakes, the game is pretty good. Expand

    This is a re-release of the awesome title originally on dreamcast! Recognize this going in, the graphics are a lot of fun but may not be onThis is a re-release of the awesome title originally on dreamcast! Recognize this going in, the graphics are a lot of fun but may not be on par with the more modern stuff. This game was a lot of fun to replay, but BE AWARE OF THIS -- The game cannot exceed 1024x768 resolution, which means most PC gamers will have it horribly stretched on their widescreens or in teeny tiny window mode. I use 1920x1080 and this game was taking up like a corner of the screen, best case scenario to retain its graphic quality, which is enjoyable still. A great title worth porting from an under-appreciated platform, it just should have been reworked to include at least resolution graphics options. HD Sonic is now available in "Generations"! But I wish this was too. Expand

    Ugh, this game isn't what its cracked up to be. The controls are awful, its very glitchy, and the level are a little bit to easy. AND THEUgh, this game isn't what its cracked up to be.

AND THE FINAL BOSS ON SONIC'S STORY IS A MESS, I KEEP JUMPING OFF THE EDGE BECAUSE SONIC CLIPS THROUGH THE STUPID BOSS. But, It does have a special charm to it. and it can be fun to play sometimes, but I can not recommend it. Expand

    Sonic Adventure DX is all over the place. It takes a beloved series and discards everything that made them good. This game had one of, ifSonic Adventure DX is all over the place. It takes a beloved series and discards everything that made them good. This game had one of, if not the worst camera I have seen in a game. Not only is the camera just in the worst places possible, it's almost impossible to align the camera to where it should be. Vehicle parts in the game feel forced, and were just not fun at all. Although you were able to drive the vehicle, there was no danger at all, and felt like a way to just add a bit more time to a very short game, which is only about four hours long. The music is forgettable, and not at all as charming as one older Sonic games. There was way too many platforming and puzzle parts in levels, which effect the flow of levels. With this, all levels are very stop and go, instead of fast like sonic should be. All but two of the bosses were pretty much exactly the same, and felt very lazy. While there are so many flaws in this very flawed game, there are some good things to point out. I liked the hint system in this game. The game never held your hand in where to go, unless you wanted it too by using the hint bubbles. The levels were beautiful, from city skylines to frozen caverns to a sunny beach. This game has very little substance, with many nagging problems. Expand

    I wish I would have seen the controls layout before I purchased this game. For me, it's absolutely unplayable. You're forced to use UP DOWNI wish I would have seen the controls layout before I purchased this game. For me, it's absolutely unplayable. You're forced to use UP DOWN LEFT RIGHT to move, "S" jumps, "A" and "D" are action buttons, and "Q" and "E" rotate the camera. Who came up with this and why can't you change it? This is the worst control layout I've seen in a while. Expand
