The distinctive features of SA-games

Recommended Posts

Sonic Heroes is Adventure 3, because it came after SA2, had the same voice actors, and had emblems. And it removed Mech-Shooting and Treasure Hunting the same way they removed Big and Amy,due to fan and critical response.

I can agree. Even SH is more SA3 than S'06, but it's still not SA3 because of gameplay. It's all so complicated. I started the topic to let people who name S'06 as SA3 change their point of view and let another SA-styled game a chance to appear.

Please tell me you're joking.

Saying that Sonic 06 is a Sonic Adventure 3 equivalent doesn't stop the developers from creating another Sonic game similarly styled like the original Sonic Adventure. It definitely didn't stop them from bringing back hub-worlds once again in Sonic Unleashed.

Well any Tom Dick and Harry can do that... the problem is that this one actually lacks much of an argument as to why it's not.

What do SA and SA2 have in common and what S'06 doesn't have? Main theme by Crush 40, 2d artwork, Chao Garden and voice in the menu. These details are the reason why S'06 is not SA3 in my opinion.

I've just named my views.

What do SA and SA2 have in common and what S'06 doesn't have? Main theme by Crush 40, 2d artwork, Chao Garden and voice in the menu. These details are the reason why S'06 is not SA3 in my opinion. S'06 is just a SA-styled game. Stop calling it SA3 and everybody's gonna be happy. :)

So it has to be original? Excuse me for asking... but when is that a written rule? To what foundation do you have to base that rule from? A whole two games with the adventure title?

Sonic 06 is an Adventure styled game.

Simple as. No denying. It basically derived itself from the past successes of SA1 and SA2. It wasn't finished, but that's a different issue.

Also, I'd like to ask why this has been brought up. We know that the actual Sonic Adventure 3 isn't going to come out, and if it does, then it will probably utilise the Unleashed gameplay, or at least a slightly modified version of it, and will thus be rejected by all Adventure fans, because it doesn't have the SA-spirit (even though it is clearly called SA3)

So why discredit S06 as SA3? What's the point. Nobody actually cares if it was SA3 or not.

Why didn't you mention the other playable characters? Surely thats an adventure trait/formula?

Characters, gameplay... the adventure formula, of course, involves this. The problem for me is the fact that I just don't feel the SA-spirit in S'06. Maybe the reason is that SA/SA2 are connected with some nostalgic feelings, I don't know.

You shot yourself in the foot right there.

The reason SA1 and SA2 feel so Adventure-ish because of nostalgia. Looking at things from outside the fanbase, Sonic 06, looks like a Sonic Adventure game, pretty much perfectly.

In fact, its probably more of a sequel to Sonic Adventure 1, than Sonic Adventure 2 was.

Look at Nepenthe's list there, it shows the difference between SA1 and SA2. Sonic 06 has more similarities to SA1 - Hub Worlds, Stories focused on a single character and not a group (argue about the amigo's, but you played mostly as Sonic Shadow, and Silver).

Thank you guys for the feedback, I've finally realized what was the matter.

Anyway, that's pretty sad that Sonic Team discarded the SA-formula after the S'06 failure. I hope that some day Iizuka will wake up and find out that there are a lot of forgotten SA-fans who need to be satisfied.
