How do I get all A ranks on every stage?

  1. I can hardly get any A ranks on any stage (this is including 1-5 missions) I want to be able to change characters in 2P mode.

  1. Either collect every ring in the stage (Some stages have more rings than the Total Ring Count, though) or meet a certain score requirement. For M2/M3, it's purely time-based.

    So in a nutshell, go as fast as possible and get as many points as possible. This includes doing tricks, destroying enemies and collecting rings.

  1. You get ranks depending on how many rings you have and how long it took you to beat the mission. An easy way to do this, if you have an action replay, is to use the unlimited rings and no time limit codes. Don't use unlimited rings for the get 100 ring ones, as that freezes the game.

  2. You have to know the game and stages very well. like in city escape, for the first mission you have to do it as quick as possible. your ranking decides on how fast you were, how many rings you got, and how sloppy you were (ex. hit cars alot = bad ranking)
    hope this helped :)

  4. Actually depending on the type of stage and mission you're doing, the a rank is based on your final score for the level. For example on the hidden chao missions (#3), its based entirely on how long you took.
    For sonic and shadow's missions for the #'s 1 and 4, your final score must be at least either 15000 or 17000 (or something close to that) and try to aim for at least 18000-20000 in the hard mode missions. For everyone in general, missions 2 and 3 are entirely time-based, so do them as quickly as possible. If you don't get an a rank, try to shave off some time the next time you do the mission.

    For example, if you don't get an a rank at 2:00 and instead get a b, finish the mission in 1:30. im pretty sure they do the ranks in 1 minute or 30 second intervals.

    I just happen to know a bit too much about the game mechanics, seeing as how i've played the game since its dreamcast release. Oh well.

  5. Look at the FAQS listed on this site and you will see a A Rank guide.

  6. There's a trick to getting an alternate A-Rank. Collect all Rings in a stage and complete it. You should see an A-Rank on the Results Screen.
