One of the best sonic games ever. You have the speed stages with sonic and shadow, the explosive stages with tails and eggman, and the treasure hunting stages with knuckles and rouge. Plus you can raise chao, and connect to your gba to out your chao in the mini chao garden. And there is also the multiplayer which is awesome. There are not ebough sonic stages and the voice acting is horrible. Luckily you can have the characters speak in Japanese with English subtitles if you want. Great for any sonic fan. You can find it on Amazon for cheap.
In Sonic Adventure 2 Battle,you play as Sonic,Tails or Knuckles,individually on a quest to fight evil. Sonic's framed for destroying a military base and taking a Chaos Emerald,Tails supports Sonic,and Knuckles is out to regain the Chaos Emerald before a bat named Rouge,who is 'sexy and smooth.'That's just the Hero side.The Dark side is working against the Hero's good ways.That's old Dr. Eggman leading the way against Tails-not SONIC?!-a new female enigma named Rouge,who's after Knuckles's emerald,and a 'demon hog' named Shadow,who's now chasing Sonic. With this fight going on,which side will overthrow?Find out in the game,of course. Gameplay sort of splits into a variety now.Instead of a casual sidescroller,you now utilize things like an action adventure. Sonic and Shadow,for example,use gameplay familiar to the past,only that the camera falls behind you instead of on the side,and now there are more ways to go instead of just left and right.North,south, west,east,northwest,north- est,southwest,southeast. The directions are possibly endless. Tails and Eggman utilize shooter style,much like e102gamma's style in SA1.Shoot enemies,and it gives you points instead of points to time.There's a health bar this time. Knuckles and Rouge involve treasure hunting.To me, this is sort of fun,because that way,you can have time to explore.Like the Legend of Zelda,for instance. The graphics are slightly cartoony for nowadays in 2007,but they must've been great for the time the game came out.Still,they're okay. Voice acting is significantly above average.Sonic sounds like Sonic,Tails like Tails,and so on. It's sort of neat,you know. My conclusion is that SA2B is a good game to buy, for Sonic fans.Although it doesn't connect with its old days that much,it's still good.Buy it,and you may not regret it.
