Single player

Gameplay takes place between two parallel storylines, the "Hero" story and the "Dark" story; the player has the option of advancing in either one or the other at any time. The "Hero" story featuring Sonic, Knuckles, Tails and the non-playable Amy, while the "Dark" story featuring Shadow, Rouge, and Dr. Eggman. Each hero character plays similarly to their respective dark character, and vice versa. Levels advance in order for each storyline, alternating between each of the playable characters.

Levels featuring Sonic or Shadow are designed in much the same way as they were in Sonic's levels in Sonic Adventure,[1] wherein the player's primary objective is simply to get to the end of the level. Levels with Tails or Dr. Eggman allow the player to control a mechanized robot walker and generally blast their way to the end, much like E-102 Gamma's stages in Sonic Adventure. Knuckles and Rouge are required to scour their levels for shards of the Master Emerald (with the exception of 2 stages where they must find keys into Eggman's base and 1 stage where chaos emeralds are located), again, much like Sonic Adventure. Interspersed between the levels are various bosses, which one particular character must fight. This article is about a group of robots in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. ...

Within Action Stages, players collect rings and defeat enemies, with a timer counting the time spent within the level. At the end of each stage, the player is given a score based on the number or rings collected and time spent within the level. The more rings and less time, the higher the score is. The player is also given a rank-based performance, a letter grade that is either A, B, C, D, or E, with A being the highest and E being the lowest. Irrelevant to any other factors, an A Rank is automatically awarded to players that complete any score-ranked mission with all of the rings from that level in the player's possession. The Sonic the Hedgehog series is a franchise of video games released by Sega starring and named after its mascot character Sonic the Hedgehog. ...


There are five missions within each Action Stage; in order to obtain the second mission, the player must complete the first one, to unlock the third, the second mission must be finished, and so on. In order from first through fifth, the missions are to complete the level, collect 100 rings, find a "lost Chao" using the Mystic Melody upgrade, finish within a time limit, and complete a "Hard mode" version of the Action Stage. This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...


Emblems are also given within the game; there are 180 Emblems in total. In order to gain all 180 Emblems, players must defeat every mission within every stage, achieve an A rank in all stages and missions, et cetera. After collecting all 180 Emblems the player unlocks an extra level 3-D Green Hill level. 3-D Green Hill is a remake of Green Hill Zone from the original Sonic the Hedgehog game.

Two-player mode

There are some characters that can only be played on two-player mode. These include, Amy Rose, Metal Sonic, Tikal the Echidna, Chaos, Chao, Dark Chao. On the dreamcast version these extra characters are unlockables, they do not come with the special abilities they get on the Gamecube. EggRobo (Kart Racing), and Big the Cat (Dreamcast only).

Reception

It begins with a Military helicopter flying over the city. "Hedgehog captured", the pilot said. Suddenly he starts shouting " Hedgehog is escaping! Repeat, hedgehog is escaping!" And at that moment Sonic the Hedgehog jumped out of the helicopter, ripping off a piece of the wing to use it as a surf-board, and then he jumped off. Then after he destroys a Military Fighter, he encountered a near look-alike of himself named Shadow the Hedgehog. He stole a chaos emerald from the bank a while earlier. Sonic realizes that the military are mistaking him for Shadow. Then Shadow uses the emerald to transport to a different location and Sonic is arrested. The next day Knuckles the Echidna and a mysterious character named Rouge the Bat are fighting over who owns the Master Emerald. But then Dr.Eggman tried to steal the Master Emerald but Knuckles stopped him in his path by breaking the Master Emerald into pieces. Knuckles and Rouge had hunt for the pieces of the master emerald. Knuckles found the first three pieces in Wild Canyon. The next day Miles "Tails" Prower came to Prison Island in search of Sonic, rescuing Amy Rose from Dr.Eggman in the process. Then Amy freed Sonic from his Prison Cell, and Sonic escaped on a missile. Knuckles left Wild Canyon, and headed for Pumpkin Hill. There he found three more pieces of the master emerald. Knuckles left Pumpkin Hill, and headed for the Aquatic Mine. Meanwhile, Sonic got weary, jumped off the missile, and landed on a small island in a vast jungle. There he confronted Shadow once again. He soon discovered the jungle was going to explode. He left the jungle just in time. Later, Tails discovered Space Colony ARK and the massive power of the Eclipse Cannon. He had to find Sonic, tell the President, and escape the military all before it was too late. He eventually found Sonic, and escaped the military. Meanwhile, Knuckles found the last three pieces he could find of the master emerald in the Aquatic Mine. He later popped out of a manhole beside Tails, Sonic, and Amy. Tails chased down the President, Then he and Sonic told the President about the situation they were in. Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, and Amy then headed for Dr.Eggman's "secret" base inside the pyramid. Sonic broke through the security system. Knuckles then had to find three keys to get into the rocket room. Then Knuckles had to defeat King Boom Boo, the king of ghosts. After that, Dr.Eggman appeared and summoned the Egg Golem, which Sonic had to take care of. After that, they blasted off in the rocket. Knuckles sensed the pieces of the master emerald, and in his excitement, he opened the cargo bay, and spun the ship, which crash landed into the ARK. Knuckles landed on a small planet and found the pieces he lost. Then he defeated Rouge and got the rest of the master emerald. Meanwhile, in Space Colony ARK, Tails was heading for the engine of the Eclipse Cannon. He destroyed the engine, it was up to Sonic now. Just to spice up the adventure, Amy got kidnapped (again). Sonic, who had a fake chaos emerald, made it to the central control room. Just then, Sonic was shot out of an escape capsule that crashed into the earth. Tails was so riled up, in a burst of anger he beat Dr.Eggman bad. Meanwhile, Knuckles (with the full master emerald) spotted Sonic coming out of a portal. Sonic told Knuckles what happened, and how he used a fake chaos emerald to save himself, and speeded to the Eclipse Cannon. Sonic confronted Shadow one last time, and destroyed the Eclipse Cannon.

Dark Story:

It begins with Dr.Eggman infiltrating Prison Island In search of the Ultimate Life Form A.K.A. Project:Shadow, a weapon created by none other than his grandfather Gerald Robotnik. He finds Shadow, released him (using a chaos emerald, and the password M.A.R.I.A. and soon discovered that he was a hedgehog. So he mistook Shadow the Hedgehog, for his enemy Sonic the Hedgehog, and nearly destroyed him. Then Shadow proved himself by defeating the military guard fighter. After Shadow defeated him, he left, Heading for Space Colony ARK. Meanwhile Rouge the Bat was fighting with Knuckles the Echidna over who truly owned the Master Emerald. But Dr.Eggman spotted their bickering, and took the Master Emerald. Knuckles stopped him by breaking the Master Emerald into pieces. Rouge and Knuckles had to hunt for the pieces of the Master Emerald. Rouge found three pieces in the Dry Lagoon. Later, Dr.Eggman went to his base to check up on things (and watch the news). He found out that the G.U.N. robots were guarding his pyramid base. He destroyed them and went on inside. While he was watching the news, he discovered that Shadow had stolen a chaos emerald from the bank (everyone mistaking him for Sonic). Shadow was leaving the bank when he had a flashback of what happened on Space Colony ARK with him and his friend Maria Robotnik. He was speeding down the highway, knocking any robot out of his way. He later saw Sonic. Shadow explained to Sonic who he was, and left. The next day, Rouge decided to infiltrate Dr.Eggman's base. But to do so, she had to find three keys. Meanwhile, Dr. Eggman, and Shadow were on the ARK. Shadow told Eggman about Space Colony ARK and the power of the Eclipse Cannon. He then put in the two chaos emeralds. They returned to the base at the time Rouge found the last key. Dr.Eggman was then attacked by his Egg Golem (because Sonic hit its head too many times). He had to destroy His Egg Golem to pass. After that, Rouge pursuaded her conditions to Eggman into helping her by giving him a chaos emerald, and telling him where three other emeralds were. Before the deal was closed, she introduced herself to Shadow. Shadow, Dr.Eggman, and Rouge all headed for Prison Island (where the three chaos emeralds were). Dr.Eggman broke through the security system, and defeated Tails, who happened to be there. Rouge found the three chaos emeralds (and defeated another Military Fighter). Shadow rushed through the jungle, planted the bomb, and found Sonic. He didn't have time to finish him off because he had to escape the jungle before it blew up. So he grabbed Rouge, and warped out of there. At the ARK, Eggman explained that he knew where the location of the last chaos emerald was, with Tails. Shadow, and Rouge were trying to catch the Tornado (Tails's plane). Rouge couldn't catch up in her car, and Shadow couldn't catch them in Sky Rail. So they headed back to the ARK to tell Eggman. A while later, Eggman discovered that Sonic and his friends were on the ARK. Rouge soon discovered that Knuckles was on a small planet with the pieces of the master emerald. She found half of the pieces then defeated Knuckles, but she gave the pieces to Knuckles anyway. Meanwhile, Eggman kidnapped Amy Rose. A while later Eggman discovered Tails, and Sonic went into the room he was in. Then Eggman shot Sonic out of an escape capsule, then he defeated Tails, and took the real emerald. Meanwhile, Shadow (who was shocked that Sonic survived) saw Sonic run up next to him. Shadow defeated Sonic one last time, and headed for the control room.

As with the Dreamcast version, after collecting all 180 Emblems, the player can unlock a 3-D version of the Green Hill Zone from Sonic 1, with a remixed version of the music from the original stage. Only Sonic is playable on this stage and while the player is given a ranking, it is not recorded on the map screen. This article is about process of creating 3D computer graphics. ... A remix is an alternative version of a song, different from the original version. ...


New "Battle" multiplayer options were added, including the addition of new characteristics to the multiplayer-exclusive characters[8] (whom, in the original, had to be unlocked, but now additional features for the kart mode are unlocked for their previous requirements).


In the GameCube version, the boxes in the Crazy Gadget level have a red 'x' on them instead of the Dreamcast's version's green 'x'. This is possibly because the Xbox bears a striking resemblance to the boxes with the green 'x'[citation needed]. For the Xboxs successor, see Xbox 360. ...


Minor special effects were added to the game, such as rain in White Jungle. Moreover, some cutscenes were redone slightly, with different or improved character animations and camera angles.


Quite noticeably, the cutscenes appear to play faster than on its original Dreamcast counterpart[citation needed].


Strangely, Big the Cat's humorous cameos did not remain in the stages, but he can still be viewed in some story sequences by rapidly pressing the A button throughout the scenes. He no longer appears in the Hero Side story, however, which means he is not in Sonic's opening scene in any form. He was also replaced by the Dark Chao Walker in the game's multiplayer mode. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Other characters in Sonic the Hedgehog. ...


Another difference in this version can be found on the 5th Mission for the Cosmic Wall stage: as opposed to the requirement of 50,000 points for an A rank (as was the case on the Dreamcast version), 100,000 points are required instead[citation needed].

The Dreamcast version is known for its infamous commercial which shows a scientist approaching a hedgehog labeled "Good Hedgehog" and petting it. The camera then goes to a tank labeled "Bad Hedgehog" where a cow is being lowered in. Eating sounds could be heard along with screams from the cow until the screen goes back to the bad hedgehog burping (this is a parody of a scene from Jurassic Park). The Gamecube version's advertisement shows several real life hedgehogs being trained to take on the role of Sonic in the game. Jurassic Park is a 1993 science fiction film directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel of the same name by Michael Crichton. ...


Soundtracks

3 original soundtracks were released for Sonic Adventure 2: The vocal album called "SA2: Cuts Unleashed" the score called "Multi-Dimensional Sonic Adventure 2 Soundtrack" and in North America the "Sonic Adventure 2 Original Soundtrack"
