This week Fred is teamed up again by Andy (@damien14273) and Ali (@thealmiesta) of the 42 Level One podcast (@42levelone) to discuss the second and final part of the history of Sonic the Hedgehog.  For the second part we cover Sonic’s 3D outings including the sordid tale of Sonic Xtreme (and its many other project names and iterations) as well as all other 3D Sonic titles up to 2006 (Sonic the Hedgehog on 360/PS3/PC).  Although it ends badly, trust us, it’s a great ride.

  1. Listening to what you were saying about Sonic Adventure 2, I totally don’t get you saying that so much about stuff that was broken in SA1 was fixed, as I actually found it the other way around, they took everything that was good about SA1 and broke every last thing. The game structure, the levels, the gameplay mechanics, the controls, right down to the chao gardens and Chao Adventure on the VMU, all of it completely sucked in comparison to SA1.

    Sonic Adventure was a great 3D Sonic game, but Sonic Adventure 2 just plain sucked in every respect.
    But it still wasn’t as bad as Sonic Heroes on the Gamecube…. never played another Sonic game since, that one just turned me off Sonic games forever.

    Soinic 2 will always remain the best Sonic game ever, with Sonic CD in second place, and Sonic Adventure third.
