He jumps! He dashes! He spins! He carries stuff! Sonic the world-famous hedgehog is back and badder than ever in this new Dreamcast 3D adventure. From zero to 60 in a heartbeat, Sonic will wow you with speeds never before seen in a console game. Armed with all-new moves, including the hyper-fast "Light Speed Dash" and "Homing Attack," Sonic and his crew set forth to outwit the evil Dr. Robotnik, and find the Chaos Emeralds before it's too late. You'll explore vast, action-packed worlds of danger and intrigue: flee from a killer whale on a sparkling tropical beach, sandboard through mysterious ruins, fly into a perilous tornado - all in a day's work for our blue hero. Sonic Adventure raises the standards of gaming with breathtaking 3D graphics, full 360 degree movement, and a host of minigames to discover. Expect the unexpected. You'll be ready for anything.
It's Kinda Like...
The original Sonic the Hedgehog series in 3D.
The Japanese version was pretty good, but the camera was a bit buggy and there were some collision problems. Word is that all this is fixed for the U.S. release and won't disappoint.
Jaw-dropping 3D graphics with
unbelievable detail and speed.
Nearly 50 massive levels, bonus rounds,
bosses, and minigames.
6 playable characters - each with
his/her own skills and abilities.
Exclusive A-Life system: breed and train
Chao characters with the VMU and then
race them in Sonic Adventure.
