Game Description & Reviews:
Sonic Adventure DX - Director's Cut - is a port of the original sonic adventure from the Sega Dreamcast. The game remains generally untouched, actually, aside from some updates to the player models and a few other aesthetic touches. The game was fantastic when the Dreamcast was released, and really showcased how much speed and fluidity the Dreamcast's hardware could provide.
Like the original, you play through a story campaign solving the occasional puzzle (put item X on pedestal Y to open area Z) in one of the various hub areas. Each hub area contains all of that area's levels. Levels vary between fast-paced race-like platforming sections and slower paced adventure-like platforming sections, with fun additions like playing pinball using sonic as the ball, racing in go karts, and unlocking extras like playing some more obscure Gamegear or sega master system sonic titles.
At the start of the game, you're presented with only sonic to play as, but as you progress through the game and meet the other characters, they become available for play. Each character has their own playstyle, with such oddities as big the cat's levels being about fishing for his lost pet frog, tails doing auto-lock-on mech platforming, and knuckles gliding around and treasure hunting. Each character's story is intertwined with the others and takes place from their point of view, which is an interesting premise.
Sadly, the game hasn't aged all that well. The same jerky, janky, and generally uncomfortable camera positions exist here. Some of the setpiece running moments or acrobatics will cause you to fly off the side of the map, and there are still plenty of weird platforming bugs that exist in this version. Is it worth playing today? That depends. With this game, the majority of people either love or hate it, and you'll have to play it for yourself to find out which camp you belong to.
The game's not bad but it's not the best Sonic game like most fanboys will tell you. Sonic & Tails levels are all about the speedy platforming that made the series famous in it their first attempt at 3D. It's nowhere near the quality and fun of the originals but it's not bad.Knuckles is reduced to a treasure hunter, Amy is a slow Sonic that must escape from a robot, Big's level are about fishing (yes, fishing. What were they thinking?) and Gamma's levels are bland mech shooters.
The extras are ok, and give you the opportunity to play some of the sega game gear sonic games.
