After several years in video game retirement, Sonic the Hedgehog returns as the star of a graphically stunning 3-D adventure game that blows away every other game in the genre. Sonic is joined by five of his friends in a massive quest that spans over 50 game levels filled with remarkable visuals and a pulsating soundtrack. Taking full advantage of the unprecedented processing power of the Dreamcast, Sega's development crew, Sonic Team, has designed several gravity-defying game levels that will keep gamers hooked.
Our favorite level is Windy Valley, which requires you to survive the stormy perils of a tremendous tornado. This tyrant of nature chases you relentlessly before ultimately sucking you into the air and up through its eye. During the chase, the tornado manages to tear up just about everything on the screen. This dizzying visual spectacle moves so fast that you will literally hold on to the game controller for dear life.
Assuming you survive the tornado, there are several more challenging areas to conquer, including a level that requires you to snowboard directly in the path of a fast-approaching avalanche. During the Emerald Coast level, you will race across a precarious dock as a killer whale attacks from below, destroying the wood planks underneath your feet while you attempt to outrun the crazed creature.
We also liked the numerous mini-games scattered throughout this title. When you least expect it, Sonic Adventure tosses in some old-fashioned arcade action, such as pinball or bumper car racing. In between, you can raise virtual pets, known in the game as "Chao." These characters, which are saved using the optional Visual Memory Unit (VMU), can be combined with other Chao characters exchanged between friends or downloaded via the Internet.
Gamers looking to show off the strong processing power of the 128-bit Dreamcast will definitely want to pick up this title. Simply put, Sonic Adventure's graphics surpass those of any other game currently available on any home video game system. Let the Sonic assault begin. --Brett Atwood

Characters: Sonic adventure is where we play as any of the characters starting with Sonic then Tails and Knuckles with better abilities for example Knuckles can dig under ground. Amy Rose returns from her Sonic Cd debut with abilities that require her hammer. Big the cat has nothing interesting except for fishing.Then there's Gamma Dr Robotniks newest robot with abilities. When u beat all the character stories unlock the Super Sonic story.
Story: On Angel Island, an island floating above Earth. The Knuckles Tribe's ruler Pachacamac plans for world domination. His daughter Tikal enters a shrine, discovering the Chaos Emeralds and the Master Emerald, a group of mysterious emeralds with unlimited power. She befriends a peaceful entity known as Chaos, the guardian of the emeralds, as well as the Chao. Despite warnings from Tikal, Pachacamac and the tribe run into the shrine. However, Chaos transforms into Perfect Chaos, destroying the island and killing everyone there. Following Chaos' attack, Tikal seals the entity and herself inside the Master Emerald.
Three thousand years later, Knuckles the Echidna guards the Master Emerald on the floating Angel Island when the evil scientist Doctor Eggman sets free Chaos. The Master Emerald is shattered and Angel Island plunges into the sea, causing the Master Emerald's shards and the seven Chaos Emeralds to be scattered. Resolving to search for the shards of the Master Emerald, Knuckles sets off. In Station Square, Sonic the Hedgehog sets off and defeats Chaos after witnessing an attack by the police. Miles "Tails" Prower tests his Chaos Emerald-powered airplane, only to crash on the beach of Emerald Coast. After Sonic rescues Tails, they go to his workshop in the Mystic Ruins, where they are confronted by Eggman. The mad scientist uses Tails' emerald to transform Chaos and he reveals his ultimate plan: with the power harnessed from the Emeralds, Chaos will eventually become invincible and destroy Station Square and Eggman will build Robotnikland over the city's ruins. Sonic and Tails set off searching for emeralds to prevent Eggman from getting them first, but eventually lose the ones they find to Dr. Eggman and Chaos. Dr. Eggman escapes in his airship, the Egg Carrier, which shoots down Sonic and Tails's pursuing plane.
After Eggman activates E-102 Gamma and fights E-101 Beta during his training, Eggman orders the rest of the E-Series robots to search for Froggy, a frog who has eaten Chaos's tail as well as a Chaos Emerald. Gamma finds Froggy but is chased back to the ship by Froggy's owner Big the Cat. After his crash, Tails finds another emerald and uses it to prepare the Tornado II plane to find Sonic while Sonic lands in Station Square once again. While lamenting her time with Sonic, Amy Rose discovers a Flicky bird and names him Birdie. However, Eggman, having discovered Birdie's location, dispatches his robot Zero to chase the Flicky down. After Sonic turns down an offer to protect Birdie, Zero captures Amy and Birdies and detains them both on Eggman's ship, the Egg Carrier. Sonic and Tails board the Tornado II and infiltrates the Egg Carrier. Knuckles also boards the aircraft after collecting pieces of the Master Emerald and seeing an image of the Egg Carrier in the emerald.
On board the Egg Carrier, Eggman removes the E-Series robots and stations Gamma in Amy's cell. However, Gamma witnesses Beta being rebuilt, Amy convinces him that Gamma should not work for Eggman, as he is an enemy. In a confusion of newly discovered emotions, Gamma releases Amy and Birdie. While being chased by Zero, Amy goes to the ship's deck. Meanwhile, Sonic and Tails confront Eggman, but Gamma is dispatched to attack Sonic. Despite attacking Sonic with lasers, Sonic defeats Gamma, but Amy interferes and has Sonic spare Gamma. Gamma, understanding that Eggman is an enemy, decides to follow the others. The ship loses altitude and Tails, Amy, and Gamma flee, while Sonic restores the ship to its original form. Sonic is confronted by Chaos, who now has six Chaos Emeralds, and defeats it once more before pursuing Eggman. Meanwhile, Knuckles steals back the six Chaos Emeralds and Big uses the Tornado II; they both flee from the ship as it crashes.
Gamma decides to track down his brother robots. After freeing the animals inside the robots, he goes to the Egg Carrier and confronts Beta, in his rebuilt form. Beta uses lasers and missiles to attack Gamma, only to be defeated once more by Gamma. However, the fight also causes Gamma to be destroyed and Birdie's parents are released. Returning to the Egg Carrier, Amy reunites Birdie with its family, but she is confronted by Zero after he knocks down the Flicky. After avoiding contact with Zero's lasers, Amy defeats the robot by using her Piko Piko Hammer and the electrical fences. She sees Birdie and his family off, much to her happiness, and vows to try her best. Sonic and Tails, meanwhile, defeat Eggman in the Egg Viper and Egg Walker, respectively.
A day later, Knuckles restores the shards of the Master Emerald, but Angel Island collapses into the sea once again when Chaos attacks him and Dr. Eggman. Chaos absorbs the 6 Chaos Emeralds and locates the seventh aboard the Tornado II, which crashed after Big used it to escape the Egg Carrier. With all the Chaos Emeralds, Chaos transforms into Perfect Chaos, depleting the Chaos Emeralds of their negative energy, and flooding and destroying Station Square. Tikal appears, having taken each main character into the past numerous times beforehand, demanding that Chaos must be sealed back in the Master Emerald. Sonic objects, saying that Chaos's heart would still be filled with anger and sadness if he were to be sealed inside the Master Emerald. Sonic's friends cheer him on, and Sonic uses the Chaos Emeralds' still-present positive energy to become Super Sonic and face off against Perfect Chaos. Following Chaos' defeat, Sonic discovers that the Chao he once was guardian of now live in Station Square, so he leaves them on Earth to live there. United with Tikal, Chaos peacefully departs to the past. The game ends with Sonic chasing after the fleeing Dr. Eggman.

The game: Sonic Adventure is on of the most revolutionary Sonic games to probably be released, as well as it's sequel, Sonic Adventure 2. There is plenty to do and a storyline of 6 different characters to view different aspects of the plot. Sonic has standard, fast-paced levels. Tails has to race against Sonic in his stages. Knuckles has to look for shards of his beloved Master Emerald. Amy has to evade an annoying robot named Zero. Big has to fish for Froggy (Worst part). E-102 Gamma has to destroy his "brothers" in a time limit. The characters also have cool special stages like "Twinkle Circuit". And the Chao Garden, which you and raise Chao and make use of the Dreamcast VMU.
The main plot is simple, keep Dr. Eggman/Robotnik from getting all the Chaos Emeralds before he uses them on the evil ancient monster, Chaos, to dominate the world. The other characters make the plot game more detailed and interesting.
Overall, this game has pretty much no issues if you have a good disc and are a great fan of Sonic the Hedgehog(I collect alot of the original games). So that's why it deserves it's 5 stars. -Jacob
The controls take getting used to, since the DC controller is not the best controller I ever held. It controls really well, if you can get used to holding the dreamcast controller.
The Glitches are there, but they are not as bad as Sonic the Hedgehog for the PS3 and XBOX 360.
The rest of the game-play and plot and story connecting is really great though. The game is going on 15 years old, and for that much time to pass and it still be just as fun (to me) as any game today, that says something.
No the graphics aren't AMAZING, the voice acting is not AMAZING, the game-play is not the most intuitive, and the camera angles...let's face it are just plain horrible through most of the game. All that being said, it is still a piece of Dreamcast history and Sonic history as well. A real Sega/Sonic fan would have this game.
