Excerpt: At the launch of the Dreamcast, Sonic Adventure was released and was one of the most amazing games in the consoles small overall collection. It was given praise for its outstanding music and graphics, along with its new 3D style game play. Once the Dreamcast failed and Sega went bankrupt, Sega started to sell their products to the different console companies. Sonic got to go to the Gamecube, first with Sonic Adventure 2: Battle and now Sonic Adventure DX Director's Cut.
Conclusion: In short, what I’m trying to say is that nothing has been done to address any of the problems present in the original release. And there are even glaring problems that make me wonder how much play testing was done. Take for example several points where Sonic (or one of the other playable characters) can be caught on unseen blocks. The usual procedure is to jump out of the situation and continue on your way.
Summary: Can an old hedgehog learn new tricks? The answer is no.
Pros: 2-player support for Game Gear games, Cut-scenes can be skipped., Excellent music, Intelligently-distributed stages, Plenty of challenges, old and new, Sonic and Tails’ gameplay very enjoyable
Cons: Awful script, animation, and editing in cut-scenes, Dated graphics, blurrier than the original’s, Evil camera and collision bugs, Gameplay with supporting characters sometimes frustrating, Maddeningly abysmal voice acting, Some ridiculously short levels.
Conclusion: Generally, this is truly a good game for a Sonic fan, and it's somewhat of a natural progression from the original Sonic games, with a few little flaws. The extras added in for DX over the original don't feel as though they've just been "tacked on" just to sell a new game, especially the mission mode which feels more like a part of the game than any of the other new additions.
Pros: It's Sonic, how can you lose?, Retro mixed with new style, very stylishly done., The music., Free Camera Mode., Knuckles has a rap theme, HOW COOL IS THAT?
Cons: Too many bottomless pits., Auto-Camera Mode., BIG THE CAT.
Conclusion: Insgesamt ist SADX ein sehr unterhaltsames Spiel, das aber mit Sicherheit hier und da ein wenig mehr hätte herausholen sollen und bei bekannten Namen und Teams ist man immer schnell enttäuscht, wenn Fehler mit der Framerate oder ähnlichem auftreten. Trotzdem ein gelungener und unterhaltsamer Jumper, der wirklich Spaß macht.
Pros: Schnelles Gameplay, Tolle Musik
Cons: Teils schlechte Framerate, Steuerung nicht perfekt
