Product Description

Product Description

Most Sonic the Hedgehog games are specifically for Sega related platforms but Sonic Adventure 2 Battle is an original game made for the Nintendo GameCube. Sonic and crew need to stop Dr. Eggman from his nasty tricks again. There's new characters brought into the Sonic universe! A mysterious dark hedgehog called Shadow and a bat named Rouge. The Sonic Adventure 2 Battle has been enhanced with graphics, doubling the framerate and now is set as a multiplayer system.

Amazon.com

Sega's mascot made his 3-D debut on the Dreamcast, but with the demise of that system the zippy blue hedgehog is popping up everywhere--including on the GameCube. Unfortunately, his first next-gen appearance, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, is marred by the same 3-D camera problems that plagued the Dreamcast version, and the multiplayer "battle" component isn't all that it's cracked up to be.

Right out of the gate, players have the option of choosing Hero (Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles) or Dark (Dr. Eggman, Shadow, and Rouge) quests, which are completely different. Sonic and his dark counterpart Shadow traverse levels at warp speed colleting coins and power-ups while fighting enemies in the game's most exhilarating moments. Unfortunately, the other characters are nowhere near as fun to play. Dr. Eggman and Tails fight through levels that require little more than constant button-mashing to shoot an endless procession of enemies, and Knuckles and Rouge participate in seemingly endless levels that require searching for a variety of objects.

Graphically, the game is a bit of a letdown considering the processing muscle of GameCube. Models are fairly simplistic, and level textures are sometimes bland. Game Boy Advance owners can use a link cable to download Chao from the game and train them on the go, but the rewards for doing so are minor considering the time investment involved. The main feature this game offers over its Dreamcast predecessor is the variety of multiplayer modes, which are fun but offer none of the depth or replayability of standalone multiplayer games like Super Smash Bros. Melee. Still, they are nice additions--especially the racing games--and round out a flawed single-player component. Sonic addicts who missed this game the first time around on the Dreamcast will definitely want to check it out, but the finicky camera, tedious non-Sonic/Shadow levels in single-player mode, and surprisingly shallow multiplayer components (especially the Chao games) turn what could have been a great game into a mere good one. --T. Byrl Baker

Pros:

  • Plenty of variety
  • Sonic/Shadow levels are pure, unadulterated fun
Cons:
  • Knuckles/Rouge levels are tedious
  • Multiplayer aspects could use some more depth

SA2B has to be one of the best games I have ever played. Here's why:
As soon as you play the first level of the Hero storyline (my favorite level), you'll be hooked.
With two storyline's and 180 missions to complete, you won't be done with this game for a while. There's even a secret storyline...
Multiplayer modes are insanely fun. While you can only play with 2 players at a time, the amount of fun you get makes up for it. There are many Multiplayer modes: Action Race, Robot Battle, Treasure hunt, Chao racing, Chao Karate, and Kart racing.
There are some pretty original ideas. You can grind down rails and slide down city streets on a snowboard while pulling crazy tricks off ramps.
The music in this game is unbeatable.
The storyline is very good, offering suspense, action, and even a few touching moments.
You can raise adorable little creatures called chao. You can even transfer chao from Sonic Advance into your chao garden.

Sonic Adventure 2 Battle is one of the best Gamecube games ever. I got it about 2 months ago AND I'M HOOKED ON IT!!!! It's so good, I just broke my wrist and STILL playing it. Heck, I'm gonna go play it after I write this review. If your a gamer who likes high speed games, you'll love it. If you like a great plot, you'll love it. If you want a slow and easy game, you'll love the chao raising system. Of course you will have to go through the levels to get the items requiered (My spelling is horrible...) to do it. The Battle system isn't all it is cracked up to be. Each one lasts about 30 seconds. Unless you're doing a race battle which takes about 2 minutes. The hero and dark story is a nice twist on the gaming world. Save the world, or destroy it? (man my fingers are starting to hurt from typing...) The bottem line is...it's worth every penny. If you say this review wasn't helpful, well it should of been. If you say yes, I'll write a beginning walkthrough to get you started-and hooked-on Sonic Adventure 2 Battle.

This game is Awesome! I never thought I'd be playing Sonic on a Nintendo console but he seems right at home on the fantastic Gamecube! I haven't played the Dreamcast version so I can't compare the two but the graphics for this version are amazing! there is so much detail and it's soooooo fast! When you start your main game you have the choice of playing the hero side with Sonic and friends or the dark side with Shadow and co. this makes the main game even more interesting. The multiplayer is also allot of fun there are seven mimi games three of which have to be unlocked (I'm still trying to get the last one) my favourite is racing down the city streets it's a blast literally!
This is one of the must have titles along with Smash Bros. Melee for the Gamecube. Like it predecessors it's a classic already.

Who would have thought that after the long Sega Vs Nintendo feuds that Sonic the Hedgehog would finally grace the Nintendo format?
Mario, Luigi and Sonic sharing the same hardware. But does "Sonic Adventure 2: Battle" live up to the hype?
Firstly 12 playable Sonic characters are on this game. The makers of this game give you lots of sonic for all the year's they've deprived us of it. And they deliver it in story mode (1 player) and multi-player battles.
There are 2 sides that you can play on, 'Hero' or 'Dark'. One trying to save the world, the other trying to destroy it. This is an excellent feature as it gives you double the game time. And don't worry about wondering if they're the same levels just with different characters, each side has its own storyline and own levels. The Sonic team did not skimp on missions. Also when you finish both the 'Hero' and 'Dark' one last mission pops up in the middle of the two. An extra stage indeed.
The multiplayer in this game is good also. You can do 3 categories: Shooting, racing or treasure hunting. The racing levels are the best as it allows you to go through past levels Versing your friend while attacking each other. This is depending on how many rings you have, the more rings, the better the attacks. A multiplayer game you earn is that of Kart Racing. Just like Mario Kart except with Sonic characters.
But what you do when you've finished the game and there's no one to play in multi-player?
Well, The sonic team have added their own versions of Tamogotchi called 'Chao'. You feed them, nurture them, teach them and make them grow up to either be Evil Chao or Good chao. A lot of fun can be had and it passes the time very quickly as you can also make chao fight or race each other.

A Kid's Review on January 6, 2002
Sonic Adventure 2: Battle is going to be a great game for Gamecube! It's the original Sonic Adventure 2 for Sega Dreamcast, but has brand new features! The game will have better detailed graphics and best of all new characters for multiplayer! In the first SA2 you were required to get medals for each character to unlock the new characters for multi-player, but now they're already playable from the start! Also with the addition of being able to link SA2: Battle to the Game Boy Advance game Sonic Advance, it will be even more fun to train your Chao! If you liked SA2 for Dreamcast, or just like Sonic the Hedgehog you will love this game!
