Summary

Sonic Adventure 2: Battle

The Good

The main story mode mixed up the gameplay types pretty well. Sonic and Shadow's speed stages were great. Tails and Eggman's shooting stages were pretty fun as well. The Chao Garden is completely changed from the previous game and will definitely pull in players who like simulations or those that just want to relax. Building a Chao to beat friend's can be a fun waste of time. The Battle mode is a great addition. Taking on other players in the three types of gameplay is good for a quick distraction. The music is, for the most part, pretty good. There tends to be a different style of music for the stages of each character. (Rap for Knuckles, Rock for Sonic/Shadow,etc.)

The Bad

Knuckles and Rouge's stages can just be annoying at times. When you reach those stages the action almost grinds to a halt until you finish it.

The Bottom Line

A really good game. This is how 3D Sonic games should be. Plus it has a 3D remake of the Green Hill Zone from Sonic's very first game! What more can you ask for?
