"A bit above avarage nothing more."
I bought this game because i'm the fan of the old console companies(Sega and Nintendo). I though t this would be atleast as good as the sega sonic series but i was a bit disappointed... Lets break it down
Story: 4/10 (just below average)
Bleh it's the same thing as the 2d Sonic series(robotnik wants to turn every thing thats alive, sonic and friends must stop him).. just a bit less of a story because of the fast that 4 different characters play on the same stages, and you can't swich inbetween them, you must start over if you wish to play as them, oh yea each of them has a differnet ability (which is expected)
Sound & Music : 5 (Average)
It's not as good as sega's old music... but it's ok..Sounds are ok as well, nothing superb, but not bad
Graphics,Sprites : 7 (Pretty Good)
I have no problem with the graphics, they look good, for the main characters but some of your foes will look a bit bland. backgrounds look good, stages look ok... You won't be disappointed with the graphics on Sonic advance
Multiplayer: 6 (Just Above average)
If you have a friend with sonic advance, Yes multi player will Rock! if you have 3 friends with it, it will Rock! You can aucutly play a version where you must explore a level and collect chao. or better yet team play mode where you Must work as a team to get to the finish but if you don't, you can still play the crummy 1 game pak version, which is just like the Sonic 2 version! Unless you really loved that, multi player just isn't going to make this game worth while
Replay: 3 (Not too good)
I had no real urge to replay this, even though i didn't collect all the chaos emeralds or get all of the chao's stuff... The first time it was great, but when i went though this with a 3rd charater it just got boring. Very little replay value hurts this game
Buy or Rent?
Rent Unless you don't have alot of time,play though games very slowly,you can stand repetivness, or you like chao and are going to get SA2: Battle for the game cube(With cable of course). 1st time though it's a good game, 2nd time it's ok, 3rd time it gets boring. level length is average and this game has 14 levels. A bit on the easy side though.
