This game is perfect.
13 October 2012 | by Newsgeek13See all my reviews

The famous blue blur is back in the dreamcast/GameCube game. Sonic adventure 2. This is my all time favorite video game. Out of all the sonic games, you might think I like sonic 1 or 2 on genesis/mega drive depending on where you are. I like those too, but I like this game the most because this is the first sonic game I have ever seen. Forget Mario, he just saves the princess, sonic stops robotnik/eggman from taking over the world.

The controls are great, well except for the camera in the knuckles and rouge stages. Sonic is fast, shadow is introduced. Tails is fun. Eggman is awesome, like he always is. The game is fun.

The story is great, the acting is great for the year 2001. This game is what every video game should be fun. I give this a perfect 10 of 10.
