Sonic adventure 2 was an upgrade from Sonic adventure 1, but it was still an iffy game that was far from perfect. Sega never took the hint from the first game that they should not expand the Sonic crew past Tails, Knuckles and Amy, and decided to introduce Shadow. Sonic in black with a bad attitude, a bit of hair on his chest and a gun is bound to be cool right? No. Sonic is annoying enough, a clone of him is overkill. Sega’s butchering of their once beloved franchise aside, Sega always manage to get two things right with their Sonic games: The graphics and the audio. You can trust Sega to deliver a Sonic game for consoles that looks and sounds nice, just as much as you can rely on them to f**k every other aspect of the game up.
Sonic adventure 2 didn’t have the most memorable soundtrack, but one song more than did it’s part: ‘Escape from the city’. The piece that players were graced with on the very first stage. Sure it was cheesy, but it was hot cheesy and captured the essence of Sonic brilliantly. I’m not ashamed in the slightest to say I really like this song and used to play the hell out of it.
