Excerpt: A few games are instant classics and are almost immune to the cruel passage of time. Others are great and although not elite, they have certain traits that, at the very least, hold up well over time.
Excerpt: I originally forgave Sonic Adventure's (many) faults on the basis that I loved the character and the graphics were incredible; an eye candy diversion to make up for the fact it was blatantly nowhere near as good as Mario 64.
Conclusion: Sonic Adventure is a complete mess and SEGA didn’t make any improvements that could have made the game better. The story is awful, the game is nearly unplayable at times, and it just isn’t fun. Perhaps as a piece of gaming history it’s actually worth checking out.
Excerpt: Mijn vroegste jeugdherinnering is het uitspelen van het eerste level van Shinobi op de Sega GameGear. Ik arriveerde na twee dagen autozitten in een klein dorpje in Spanje. Ik gok dat ik ongeveer zes was, misschien vijf.
