    Part of me wants to get it for the achievements, but then the sensible part reminds me that I have it on PC with a working Super Sonic to boot.

    That, and I need to make Metal Sonic's model stop sucking.

    SEGA are being lazy as shit when it comes to these. Porting over so called "Dreamcast" games, when in actual fact theyre just porting PC code over from the PC releases of SA and Crazy Taxi (which is why Crazy Taxi is in 16:9). The only other first party Dreamcast game released on the PC was The House of the Dead 2, so you can guarantee that will be released next.

    However, what are they going to do after that? Actually work on porting over cult classics? Or can the idea altogether?

    (Actually, wasn't there banners found for Space Channel 5 as well? Is that just because that got a PS2 release?)

    Space Channel 5 is up on PartnerNet right now, and it's most likely because of the PS2 port. Sega Bass Fishing was released all over the place, including recently on the Wii. So these are your next two games. Don't count on them porting a game that hasn't been ported on the PC already, but SA2:B is still a possibility because of it's release that was a little over one year apart from the original Dreamcast one. Power Stone/2 is also a possibility because it was ported to the PSP, so that's probably next as well.
     
  4. Sonic Adventure 2, obviously.

    Someone tell me why Crazy Taxi is in full HD and this isn't even in Widescreen?

    Because the PC version of Crazy Taxi was widescreen compatable and SADXW wasn't unless you edit like three lines of text. That's too much work for Sega, of course.

    Wasn't there a hint that Jet Set Radio might be showing up, or was that just fake?

    If Sonic Adventure 2 Battle gets ported, I really hope they add online.

    That was fake.

    The port deserves no higher than this. They can't honestly expect to shove off yet another shitty port of Sonic Adventure and get away with good reviews can they? Besides they'll get what they want. Money, since this port cost a probably very small amount to make.

    Only way I'm buying this game again is if they update all the in game models and textures (Not just Sonic and friends. This goes for everything, people, Robotnik, levels, etc.), fix the cutscenes so there isn't any more running in place crap, fix the camera, make the game widescreen and at least 720p, and update the archaic menu system. Since this is Sega, I can only dream

    It's a poor port, but...seriously? Bar the Mystic Ruins area (and even then, the DX version adds a map) it really isn't that hard to navigate. Tikal's there to direct you aswell. The "two stone statues" part may be the only instance in which I got lost trying to enter a stage, and that was due to the silver statue in the jungle.

    I honestly doubt IGN actually played the XBox Live version. It seems like they just took an angreyyy dreamcast review and stuck some inferences from the screenshots at the end.

    I honestly doubt IGN actually play any games they review. Then again, it's not a first-person shooter, so of course it'll get a low score.

    I wish I wasn't broke this week, cause I'd be downloading it as soon as it goes up.

    Really?

    Really?

    His closing paragraph is classic Sonic hate review.

    To get out of the lake in Mystic Ruins, you have to jump across a small series of platforms. That form steps, so aren't particularly hard to manage.

    And that's the only example I can think of. You can get to just about everywhere else without even jumping.

    I don't know... given how terribly Sonic Adventure, nevermind SA DX, has aged, that they're using the PC port, which is already bad enough, and that this is a horribly shoddily slapped together "HD port", 3.5 sounds just about right. I certainly wouldn't give it any higher just because of how utterly lazy it is.

    Hell, they're not even offering anything new of substance with this. I don't know why you guys are so quick to bury the reviewer just for rightfully calling out the game as being shit.

    Oh, I don't care about the reviewer saying he thought the game was shit.

    When he outright LIES in an review, that's when it's wrong.
