Sonic Adventure is a downloadable version of the original game released for PlayStation 3's PlayStation Network and Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade on 2010 worldwide. This port was officially announced by Sega on 10 June 2010 that it would be released on the aforementioned platforms.[1] It was then released for Steam on 2011 under the name Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut, containing most of the changes found in that game.

New features

  • An online leaderboard feature has been added, allowing players to see where they rank in terms of their high scores in each Action Stage.

Changes

  • The cutscene in Super Sonic's Story when Sonic is at the burning altar is shown in a more cinematic style.
  • The graphics are brighter, with even shinier character models. Textures are more clear due to HD.
  • The sound effects in the sound test menu respond better and are more organized.
  • The text font for the subtitles are different (due to being a port of the original PC release from 2004).
  • There are purple borders on each side of the screen (if played in widescreen), due to difficulties with making the game in true widescreen.
  • In Mission 12 for Knuckles the signs that had images of: Sonic Mega Collection, Sonic Advance 2 and Sonic Pinball Party now have images of Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I and Sonic Unleashed respectively.
  • The opening title sequence restores the original Sonic Adventure logo, although the rest of the video is identical to Sonic Adventure DX.

Updates

On September 15, 2014, Sega released a patch for the Steam version of the game to correct some bugs and to completely testing that the game will play at 720p properly.[2] The patch notes are:

  • Fixed an issue where the launcher would fail to save settings.
  • Added support for v-sync and FXAA.
  • Now renders correctly at higher resolutions (above 720).
  • Added Steam Achievements.
  • Improved button prompts, now supports gamepad button prompts, and keyboard prompts are sensitive to user configurations.
  • Keyboard controls can now be reconfigured.
  • Removed horizontal borders.

Reception

Reviews for the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade versions of Sonic Adventure were mixed. IGN UK's Arthur Gies gave the Xbox 360 version a score of 3.5/10 and calling it "so fundamentally flawed that it borders on unplayable--the sections that move the fastest, that work best, require the least input from the player."[3] 1UP.com criticized both the game's dated mechanics and the perceived lack of effort put into the port, which "feels like it wasn't even tuned for the Xbox 360 controller."[4] By contrast, Gamer 2.0 claimed that the controls were "slightly more responsive than those of the Dreamcast original,"[5] and PlayStation LifeStyle scored it 8/10, complimenting the "frantic, fun gameplay" and "tons of replayability", concluding that "If you manage to overlook the glitches and dinky camera, you'll easily find a gem (or emerald) in this Dreamcast classic."[6]

Trivia

  • After performing specific tasks, clothes for PlayStation Home and Xbox Live Avatars such as a Sonic Adventure T-Shirt and Sonic's shoes are available.
  • The Steam version of this game seems to be a reported version of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 ports, since there are many leftovers from them still not removed from the PC port.[7]
