So without do, this topic is to discuss a game that is now over 10 years old. The game has probably had many mix reactions. Some say it is the best game since the Genesis (Mega Drive) games, while other say it's about on par. Then there are people who say it's where Sega started to go wrong completely. Of course, there are other opinions about the game, but I'd like you guys to talk about it!
In my honest opinion? It really is a great game. It was something that showed that Sega cared about the Sonic series at the time and despite it's flaws and rushed development, it did come across as a good game. Sometimes, it was fun exploiting the problems that were in the game to allow for some more "additional gameplay", that was otherwise unaccessable normally. Though, doing so you can clearly tell how many shortcuts that Sega did to make this game.
Controls were actually workable and the camera didn't make you want to actually snap the disk in half. Although, admittingly the issues were present with that. Another problem is that the games collision (partially more so in the original Japanese release) is wonky. It's a very flawed system that would later be patched up for the Gamecube remake/port. Although, there were still a number of issues present with that version.
Admittingly though, both the Japanese and English voice actors were relatively new to voicing the characters, so they generally had trouble capturing the characters personality. Infact, the japanese quality of the voice recordings actually do sound uneven, as if the recording sessions were directed differently or recorded monthes from each other. However, in the english version, it sounds like everything was done closely as possible with almost no variation with the character direction. Tails also had an overall better english voice actor (infact, as far as I'm aware, this was the only time the voice actor for Tails in Japan did a voice role).
There were alot of things I wish could have happened with the game but in the end did not. While I think I enjoyed the game overall more so, despite it's flaws, there were some unjoyable moments to the game as well. More specific, a character named Big. I think that in itself will explain it...
But anyways, I'll probably re-edit this entire post once I get some rest. So I apologize for not making any sense.
So honestly, how do you guys tend to celebrate Sonic Adventure's 10th anniversary and what is your honest opinions of the game as a whole?
