    I'll pass on both, SA2 was always a 30% good game and 70% horrible game...and the 30% part was mostly broken, still it's a vast improvement on the first game. Nights, meh it was never that great but decent enough.

    I was going to buy Sonic Adventure 2 HD but the thought of paying for the GameCube version exclusives turned me off.

    They should've ported this to the vita, would've probably helped the vita a bit.

    Nah, what would help the Vita would be games you can only play on it that aren't "me too" experiences, half arsed or on better platforms that most people already own. The PSP eventually got some but then it was too late by that time.

    :yay:

    I don't get the hate for this game. I loved the game when I played it for the Dreamcast when it came out, and I still play it to this day on my Wii.

    The Sonic and Shadow parts were cool, the Tails and Eggman parts were meh and the Knuckles and Rogue parts were annoying. Chao Garden was awesome, tho.

    Does seem suprising as the likes of Panzer Dragoon Saga tend to sell a silly prices now a days and people pay....you would think Sega would try and get a piece of the action itself

    Throw in Saga too, which so far is Saturn only.

    Of course if Sega did do this they'll probably fart out the Ages PS2 version and just do version of Orta that is on XBLA which I hear is glitchy.

    What may be of some interest is the spiritual successor Crimson Dragon which is by the same guy who directed the first three games. Sadly it seems to be in limbo but then it was Kinect only so maybe that would be for the best. Recently a Windows 7 version has appeared though, hopefully Microsoft will stick with it but drop the Kinect part.

    If ever there were a more blatant example of selling an incomplete game and completing it with paid DLC, it is porting a game and going out of your way to remove a part of the game to sell as DLC.

    The Dreamcast version was complete at the time, so they can say they're releasing a port of the DC version, but with the additions from the GC port as DLC.

    I have tried looking for a good list of differences between vanilla Sonic Adventure 2 and Battle, this is as much as I can find

    • Viewable chao stats
    • More chao activities
    • Differing school and heaven/hell arenas
    • More multipayer options
    • Various chao connectivity activities

    So unless you was gaga for chao nonsence, I would say you could skip the Battle DLC

    Oh, I guess that would mean Sonic and the Black Night and the 2006 PS3 exclusive were platinum games.
