Sonic adventure 2 worth it? Read some fan reviews on meta critic and they are kinda all over the place. Anyone have personal opinions?
The port itself is competent enough-- some very small glitches (mainly graphic due to the widescreenin'). The original game bugs were not fixed, none of which are really game breaking.
When the game came out, it was decent. It hasn't aged as well as I've hoped, but I still have fun with it. It was a good, first generation attempt of Sonic in 3D-- one in my opinion didn't get topped until they started refining the formula with Sonic Unleashed. Sonic and Shadow are the traditional 3D gameplay, which are really the bread and butter of the game. Some of it's too much roller coaster fluff, but a lot of the levels manage to be creative and fun to play. Tails and Eggman are in mechs and mostly are disposable levels (though Eggman has some legitimately fun levels which are a higher quality than Tails, somehow) and then the Emerald hunting stages with Knuckles and Rogue. Some of these levels are genuinely fun to explore due to their huge, expansive nature, but are mostly a chore.
Overall... it's 400 points. And to Sonic Adventure 2's credit, no one other than Sega has really created a dedicated, high speed 3D platformer. A formula like this is hard to nail down, and if you can get past its age, I believe there is some fun to be had with the game. As a Sonic fan, it's disappointing that they made Eggman playable, but didn't give him any meaningful gameplay, and also dumbed down playing as Tails, as well.
