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

    Sonic Adventure DX is an amazing addition to the Sonic the Hedgehog series. 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

    It seems like before this game was made Sonic and the Camera had a drunken night together and Sonic said that he didn't want anything too serious and the Camera talk this rather harshly because they work as well together as a Mouse trap in a bowl of hot soup.

    The control scheme is also quite weird, I wish you were allowed to remap the buttons but, nope, we are stuck with the arrow keys, which is rather annoying.

    I was hoping for the mouse to be the camera and WASD to be movement SPACE to jump and Q and E to be the action buttons.

    The story is also the same ol' same ol' for a Sonic game, Eggman is doing bad stuff, you've got to stop him.

    Music is nice though, but that's about it's only saving grace.

    Not worth $20 AUD, but if you can find it for say $2 or possibly free.
    Then I'd say give it a whirl, but if not steer clear and just look up the soundtrack on youtube.

    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 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

    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 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
