9The game is a bargain at 800 ms points. The game is not going to blow you out of your chair but it is full of nostalgic awesomeness. Can't believe these comments about the game not ageing well. It's more than ten years old for gods sake. Quite annoyed that you need to spend another 120 ms points to get the DX version. Bad move SEGA.… Expand
To be honest, back at 9-9-1999, there was only one game making me buy a Dreamcast, and that was Crazy taxi :-). But, after finaly jumping on the Dreamcast machine, i also bought Sonic adventure. And to be honest, i still think this is the best 3D sonic game to date. Even the last one, where he turns into a wherewolf failed me, just because of that wherewolf part, and those parts took the longest time.
So back to Sonic adventure. Ive got the DX update as well, and i must sai that for me, i allready knew the tough spots of this game, and so it did not take long before i finished the game with Sonic. There where times i thought they should have finetuned the gameplay, but still, to me, they kept true to the dreamcast/gamecube/pc Sonic adventure. For me, it still feels like the same game. So here's some pro, and con's to help out getting this game or not.
+ Sonic finest adventure is back and hasn't changed for the worce (it could have been terribly emulated, but it's not.)
+ the high(er) resolutions make some sonic levels really shine with less jaggies.
+ If you are like me, and are used to the old voice casting, they did not changed that. Some find this anoying, but i kind of like the humorous voice acting :-D
+ If you don't get the DX extension, it's just 800 MS points. So for a trip down memory lane, it's not even that expensive.
- Some collours feels altered, i will soon play this game on my dreamcast to see if i'm right about this one.
- why can't we have a option to make this game widescreen? as if there are not enough widescreen tv's around to make this worth their trouble....
- DX update should have been given for the 800 MS points you pay for the normal game.
- If you hated this game on the Dreamcast, there's nothing that makes you change your mind now.… Expand
