High speed battle with Sonic and Shadow!

The Good
This game is great! I got this game with my Gamecube, I originally wanted Mega Collection but this is way better. The graphics are good, the gameplay is AWSOME, the music is great, this has alot of Crush 40 music on it.

The Bad
The only bad thing about it is the mouth moving with the voice, but who cares? No one does.

The Bottom Line
This is addictive! I am up to 200 hours plus on my game file clock, this is the most addictive game ever. That is the equivalent of playing for over 8 days straight. U want rings, chaos emeralds, fun and speed? Sonic Adventure 2 Battle has it all. With a great game like this, how could the Dreamcast have failed?

The same as the Dreamcast version.

The Good
There was not alot of improvements from the Dreamcast version. The only new things were letting your Chao fight it out and hooking it up to your Game Boy Advance.

The Bad
I really don't have an opinion about it since there were no real changes.

The Bottom Line
It would just be better to buy the Dreamcast version, it would be cheaper too.

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?
