Trivia

Knuckles' voice in the E3 1999 demo was different from the version in the final product. He had the same voice actor, however the voice direction was very different. The lines were also slightly different. One of his lines ("Oh no!") was used in the final product, however in a separate cutscene. Oddly enough, some of these voices actually ended up used in Sonic Adventure DX, but only the ones that played outside of cutscenes. See more »

Goofs

While playing as Sonic in the Sky Deck after destroying the Giant canons, Sonic is teleported to a completely different area with no explanation or possible way he could have got there. This happens several times throughout the level. See more »

Revolutionary for 1998
19 December 2012 | by Newsgeek13See all my reviews

This game is awesome. i can't help trying not to say that. It was 1998 and SEGA released the Dreamcast. It was the first 128 bit console. One of the first launch titles was Sonic Adventure. Originally, the game was supposed to be an R.P.G. That idea was eventually scraped. This was the blue blurs first jump into the 3-D world(not counting Sonic 3-D blast or Sonic R) Let's talk about the game. The story is o.k. for what it is, but one problem. There's 6 characters, which means 6 story's and you have to piece them together. speaking of 6 characters, there's sonic, tails, knuckles, new comer Amy, E'102 Gamma and... ugh. Big the cat. O.k. 2 characters are pointless. Big the cat should never have been thought of. Amy, no one likes. If you want to here my opinions, watch Somecallmejohnnys review on youtube. Anyway. The game is super fun.
