Sonic Adventure :: XBLA Game Review

Sonic Adventure :: XBLA Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Sep 16, 2010
( Rating: 2 Star Rating)

As a re-make of an old Dreamcast game, Sonic Adventure has not aged well. This is perhaps one adventure better left unexplored.

Boy, this game has not aged well. It has been just over ten years since Sonic Adventure was originally released for the SEGA Dreamcast and now you can download this game from XBox Live Arcade. Many of the things that were cool and passable before are now terrible and frustrating.


Sonic's Mis-Adventures

The graphics have been improved a lot from the [kwlink 1256]Dreamcast version, which is great. It won't boggle your mind, but it looks nice. Unfortunately, you can only play the game on standard 4:3 resolution. If you have a wide screen TV, this means you will have some blank, unused space on the sides, or a really stretched out Sonic.


The controls for this 3D game could have been improved a lot, but instead it is clumsy and frustrating. Combined with the poor level design and bad camera angles, you can expect to be falling to your death over and over again. Additionally, there are places in the game where Sonic might even get stuck, such as in the poorly constructed loops.


Alternate Sonic

It is very hard to recommend this game, even if you are a Sonic fan. There are actually better re-makes already available, such as Sonic Adventure DX for GameCube and PC, which adds in some mini-games. Still, it might be better to just sit tight and wait for Sonic Colors to come out for the Nintendo DS in mid-November.


It really is too bad for fans, as lots could have been improved with this re-make, but disappointingly wasn't. If you want to try it out for yourself, you can still download the demo of the game for free from XBox Live Arcade and try it out for a bit first. Overall, however, look for another game to quench your Sonic thirst as Sonic Adventure is not the game you are looking for.

Could Sonic Outrun This Race Car?

  • Heck yeah, the lil' blue dude has some serious speed.
  • No way, he's fast but that's a race car.
  • He could with some cheats from Cheat Street!

This child is unusually short for the height of his parents, but his energy and optimism make up for it. His magic is mostly centered around pranks and jokes, and he wants to work in Weasley's Wizard Wheezes when he grows up, but he won't say no to an adventure in the Forbidden Forest. He wears jeans, long sleeved shirts, and a dark leather vest over it all. He grows out his hair long and puts it in a ponytail, and his green eyes are full of life and energy. He has a strong moral compass, not afraid to get his hands dirty to protect the ones he loves. Steven x Peridot (Stevidot)
