Sonic Adventure™ 2
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
"Sonic Adventure 2 is for true Sonic fans that want to relive a time when the series was still fun to play. Despite the terrible camera and some audio hiccups, it's a great experience for old and new players alike. The Chao Garden and great price only add to the overall package making this one a sure fire bet!" - gaming-age.com
"Sonic Adventure 2 offers the same thrills as its Dreamcast and GameCube predecessors without sacrificing too much. The online features from the Dreamcast title are unfortunately stripped, and the GameCube extras are only available as paid DLC – making this PSN download worth skipping if you already own either of the original titles. But for those who haven't yet experienced the fast paced adventure, this is a stellar port of an old classic." - Pushsquare.com

Sonic’s second 3D game is my favourite entry in the series. It got everything right. The cast is huge : you play as both heroes and villains. Yeah, you can even play Robotnik! And this game adds the badass Shadow The Hedgehog to the cast. There are three types of levels in this game. The “speed” levels are the more classic ones. It’s what you’ll get from any 3D Sonic game. The “shoot” levels are action levels where Tails and Eggman go all gun blazing. Finally, the “search” levels are just like the Knuckles story in the first Sonic Adventure game. The game suffers from its camera and its a bit glitchy but the fun remains intact. The level design is very good and offers some challenge. The huge cast gives a lot of variety to the game too. There are a lot of optional challenge to complete and the adventure is quite long. Sonic Adventure 2 is a great game. I don’t understand why so many people dislike it.
One of the best Sonic gamesNergal2410 | July 20, 2014 | See all Nergal2410's reviews »
released in 2001 for the Dreamcast and Gamecube, SA2 is hailed as one of the best Sonic games so far, I tried emulating it a few years back, but it wouldn't work very well, so I was pretty excited when they announced a PC release over 10 years since it's debut. SA2 was the game that introduced 2 recurring famous characters of the series: Shadow and Rouge you can watch the story unfold from the perspective of the villains or the heroes, the "Dark" and "Hero" paths respectively, you don't have to beat one to unlock the other, they're already unlocked from the get-go depending on what path you're on, you can control different characters, on the "Hero" path, you control Sonic, Tails and Knuckles on the "Dark" path: Shadow, Eggman and Rouge it is curious to note that this is the only Sonic game that allows us to play as Eggman anyway, the game is divided into 3 gameplay parts: Speed Stages, Mech Stages and Treasure Stages in Speed Stages, you play as Sonic or Shadow, depending on what path you're on in Mech Stages, you control either Tails in the Tornado in Mech form, or Eggman in a Mech and in Treasure Stages, Knux and Rouge many people aren't too fond of Mech and Treasure Stages, though I have to disagree, I loved the mech stages, though I do agree Treasure Stages are a step back from SA1... Speed Stages are very good, and arguably, the best. the same cannot be said for the story, which, at first glance would seem fine, but at close inspection, is actually full of plotholes, and on the topic of bad things, this game must have one of the worst lip synch ever made, I mean, I know it's old, but I played games from 2001 that did lip synch better than this, oh well, at least it's a step up from SA1 each level can be played multiple times with different objectives (collect 100 rings, defeat 20 enemies, etc), the design of the levels has some platforming in them, especially in some mech stages the upgrade system feels off, at least for Speed and Treasure, it’s fitting to have upgrades in mech however. On the music side, this game has some incredible songs, like “Live and Learn” and “Fly in the freedom” it’s curious to note how all sonic games are amazing on the music department The game’s ending is both good and bad, Shadow dying isn’t exactly a bad thing in itself It’s the way he died, he just fell into the atmosphere for NO reason at all, in one shot he’s helping sonic destroy the biolizard, in the next, he’s falling There’s not much else to be said, it’s just an all around good game with minor flaws here and there

It not only let's you meet the good ol' Dreamcast Sonic days as it also gives you an amazing test to your skills patience as you try to collect the 5 emblems associated to diffrent missions in over 30 levels. Highly recommend if you own a controller as the games has a poor PC port in which only the controller promts are shown.
Great Game, Awful PC Portcombodombie | March 5, 2014 | See all combodombie's reviews »
Sonic Adventure 2 is a great game. It has awesome music, a very good story, and (most of the time) great gameplay.
However, DON'T GET THE PC VERSION. Why? Well, the controls are incredibly confusing to understand, the game runs like CRAP (I have a stable computer that can run most of my game library at about 30-60 FPS), with a horrible frame rate. If you want to get the game, just get the Gamecube, Dreamcast, Xbox Live or PSN versions instead.

I do like this game quite a bit. Sonic is a cute little speed ball as he always is, and the level design is ingenious. The biggest issue with this game is the controls. This is a really poor PC port from the standpoint of actually controlling sonic. The buttons are different from any other standard PC game, and to make matters worse, they do not give keyboard button prompts, only controller prompts. This game is fun, but only if you are willing to fork out money to buy yourself a controller.
