Top 10 Reasons Why the Whole Sonic Adventure Franchise Sucks

Sonic Adventure is an awful series in gaming. It may have been a commercial success with a beautiful atmosphere & strong emphasis, but it has a lot of bad stuff in it. The Japanese versions of the game are the only good versions of this game. The non-Japanese release of the original Sonic Adventure 1 on the Dreamcast is the main game that ruined the whole Sonic franchise, mainly due to its awful voice acting, terrible character designs (which the dreadful Sonic Adventure started) & cutscenes.

The Top Ten

1 The Voice Acting

Well, it is fine in the Japanese version, but the non-Japanese versions ruined the whole franchise!

Voice acting doesn't make a game.

This list is utter garbage. Voice acting does not make a game. - DCfnaf

2 The Games

"...which held some of the best Sonic games in it..."

So the Classic Sonic games such as Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (& Knuckles) and Sonic the Hedgehog 1 are not the best Sonic games? Sonic '06 is the best Sonic game?!

3 Amy Rose (especially her dress, story & design) Amy Rose (especially her dress, story & design)

The original Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast is the main thing that ruined Amy Rose & made her worse!

Amy Rose is making Sonic Adventure even worse! And what's so good about Sonic Adventure?!

Classic Amy is much better than Modern Amy.

And Sonic CD is the greatest Sonic game ever! OK, maybe Sonic 2 on the Mega Drive is even better and the best Sonic game ever tying with Knuckles' Chaotix.

I placed Amy Rose higher than any member of Team Sonic and most other main Sonic characters! TAKE THAT, FANBRATS!

4 The Designs of the Characters

Sonic Adventure: the game that revolutionized the Sonic franchise to be ridiculous, with a horrifying new beginning and spoiled.

Here is an example why why. The redesigns.

Sonic the Hedgehog goes from stout with a spherical body, legs that are blatantly blue-furred slits, a preteen's age, black eyes, a small mouth and straight quills to lanky (yet really short, but actually tall in Sonic Boom and beyond :D) with an ovular body, longer legs, a teenager's age (What the hell?! ) green eyes, huge mouth and more droopy quills, and an annoying, miscast voice.

Miles "Tails" Prower goes from stout with a cubical body, a young child's age, black eyes, legs that are very short as well as slits that are covered with yellow-orange fur, a thin mouth and an extremely adorable voice (that sounds like a very young girl's) to taller, skinny with a thin pear figure, an older child's age (though not as old as sonic the Hedgehog and around two times younger), a normal-sized ...more

Wow, you Sonic Fans ARE stupid. If having green eyes makes a game suck, you KNOW your fanbase has a problem. - DCfnaf

This is an amazing reason to hate a game.

Look at the bar that says how many lives you have left on Sonic Adventure 1 & Sonic Adventure. And look at the awful boxarts. This is what ruined the whole Sonic franchise.

I would give sonic adventure and sonic adventure 2 both a 9.25/10 and no, I do not hate classic sonic or super Mario 64! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Sonic Adventure gets a 3/10.

Sonic Adventure 2 gets 2/10 stars.

Sonic Adventure 2: Battle gets 3/10 stars.

Sonic Adventure 7 gets 8/10 stars.

Sonic Adventure : Director's Cut gets 3/10 stars.

IGN overrated this game so much!

Forget it! This franchise will never be good.

10 The Bosses

Actually, I really liked the bosses, even if they turn out to be simple. - The Ultimate Daredevil, very regretful for his creation of this list as a former Classic Purist

12 The Boxart of Sonic Adventure 1 on the Dreamcast

Seriously, look at Sonic's awful smile! Look at how weird his teeth look! It looks much better on Mario! And Sonic Adventure would have been a much better video game if the Sonic characters who were introduced in the older games had their original designs.

Sonic Adventure would be much better with Classic Sonic.

13 Its Archie Comics Adaptions

Even though I always loved them (only for the standards of Modern Archie Sonic standards, which is probably even lower than Happy Madison standards, and that's saying something).

14 The Soundtrack

I meant to insert "My Sweet Passion" on this half-bad list, not the soundtrack as a whole!

15 Sonic Adventure 2's Character Intros
16 Awful Plots & Storylines
17 Big the Cat

His missions ruined the whole Sonic franchise!

Yes, Big's missions were one of the main reasons that the game is terrible. But Still, Big remains one of my favorite characters - Yona_db

18 Lack of Mario Characters

It's a Sega game you idiot. Of course there's no Mario characters. More sonic haters and Mario lovers.

This shows you Mario Fans are idiots. - DCfnaf

Do you REALLY think they're going to put their arch-rival's characters in the game? I think not. This is THE stupidest reason to hate a game.
"It doesn't have Mario so it sucked."
Someone said this about this game. You just need to accept Sega and Nintendo were rivals when this game was released. Seriously.
