You've got to be pretty stupid to not like the gfx

Okay, to the idiots hating on the game because of dated graphics and controls, THESE GAMES ARE FROM THE 90S. HOW DUMB DO YOU HAVE TO BE?
Anyways, the games are fun. Sonic Adventure is personally my favorite. I didn't ever have a Dreamcast but I remember playing Crazy Taxi in arcades and playing Sonic Adventure DX on Gamecube. This is definitely worth at least a rent, possibly a buy.
Okay, so I really only rented this one because of my curiousity toward the music grame Space Channel 5, since I already own ports of Sonic Adventure (DX on the Gamecube) and Crazy Taxi (Crazy Taxi 3 had all three games on the XBox disc with improved graphics). Frankly I was disappointed by it from even my first few minutes playing it... it was just not any real fun to me, its controls confused me more than anything, I think Parappa the Rapper was more straight forward than it to be honest. So with my attention toward Ulala diverted, I went on to playing a little of Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi.
Crazy Taxi... wow.. I don't understand why the sound levels are so uneven with this port. The cabby and customer voices are extremely loud with no way to adjust them, so it just became a mixture of an altered soundtrack and crashing noises. A very poor port, to say the least.. although the fun of the original arcade level was still there, now if only I could perfect the Dash.
Sonic Adventure.. it was better with the cleaned up DX version on the Gamecube, although I understand that the DX content is available as DLC, but frankly why should you spend precious cash on that when or if you can just rent the Gamecube version?
I didn't play the Bass Fishing game because it didn't interest me.
