Sonic Adventure DX Director's Cut Movie 1
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 27
  2. Negative: 6 out of 27
  1. This game offers tons of different things to do that include: six different playable characters, a new mission mode, and even the Game Gear Sonic games.
  2. Thrilling and refreshingly buoyant, Sonic Adventure DX-Director's Cut actually justifies '90s nostalgia.
  3. The gameplay has serious setbacks, but possibly the worst part of Sonic Adventure DX is its cut-scenes. Featuring an atrocious English translation and mind-numbingly horrible voice acting, Sonic Adventure will, at best, leave many players embarrassed for Sega, and at worst, leave them disgusted with the game.
  4. The Dreamcast version might not have the fancy new audio and video enhancements but the gameplay is more fluid and ultimately more fun.
  5. 50
    There are so many flaws in execution that can't be ignored, either, from one of the worst camera systems in a 3D game to the fact that Sonic himself catches onto the environment and sometimes comes to a dead stop in mid-sprint.
  6. Sonic and his buddies get hung up on scenery far too often and have trouble hitting what should be solid objects. Characters shouldn't fall through the floor for no reason.

    A dated game that is today belittled by the very games that it helped inspire. I can't believe that this game hasn't been tweaked. It's nearly identical, warts and all to the DC port.

    I really like this game.
    Sometimes it does get hard, and I don't really like it.
    But except that, it's AWESOME! It's 2014. We like a 2003

    Forget about XISMZERO, this game totally rocks. Maybe it has a tiny little camera problem but you won't even notice. The best sonic game around.

    While it hasn't aged well in terms of voice-acting and character animations, Sonic Adventure still remains as my favorite Sonic The HedgehogWhile it hasn't aged well in terms of voice-acting and character animations, Sonic Adventure still remains as my favorite Sonic The Hedgehog game. Smooth controls, great level designs, rocking soundtrack and tons of variety! The replay-ability is strong with this one. Expand

    I don't understand why this game gets so much hate. This is the same if not better than the Dreamcast Version. All levels are fun to I don't understand why this game gets so much hate. This is the same if not better than the Dreamcast Version. All levels are fun to play besides Tails's and Big's, the graphics are OK, and the controls work well on the Gamecube. The idiot who gave this game a 0, sure the Genisis/Mega Drive games are great games, too, but that doesn't mean this game isn't worth anything. Expand

    Sonic Advneture has aged a lot. The voice acting is awful just like the cutscenes, the game is still pretty glitchy (not like Sonic 06 or BoomSonic Advneture has aged a lot. The voice acting is awful just like the cutscenes, the game is still pretty glitchy (not like Sonic 06 or Boom but still.) And Big The Cat, do i need to say more about that fat f*cker? Also the DX version doesn't fix much of the problems like glitches, camera issues etc. tbh. the Dreamcast version is better then the DX version. Even the music aged well (most of it) hell Mario 64's music doesn't sound so aged well, cause it's a simple music not like Sonic's soundtracks. Oh yeah and the camera sucks too, sometimes insted fighting with a boss or playing a stage you're fighthing the camera. But overall i think the game is pretty good Sonic is the best character in the entire game and he has the longest campain. If you didn't play Sonic Adventure yet go play it, it's worth it. Expand
