    General Info
    This is pretty much a GameCube port of Sonic Team's DC masterpiece. There are some significant differences, though. The graphics are a bit clearer and more vibrant, a new rendered intro has been added, the Chao minigame has been dramatically improved, and 2-player mode has been expanded. Unfortunately, the hidden Bigs have been taken out of the game for some unknown reason. The important changes are listed on this page. The rest of the gameplay info (which is the same for both versions) can be found on the Sonic Adventure 2 page.

    Sonic Adventure 2

  • You can FINALLY see Chao stats in-game rather than having to load Chao into the VMU to view their stats.
  • Chao can now be loaded into Sonic Advance for Gameboy Advance rather than the VMU. Chao from Sonic Advance can also be loaded into SA2: Battle.
  • The Chao black market (available for SA2 on the SA2 website) is now included in-game and you can buy Chao upgrades with rings.

  • 2-Player
  • There are many more levels available for all 3 of the 2-Player modes from SA2.
  • A 2-Player Chao fighting game has been added. Unfortunately, it's all based on stats and fairly passive.
  • Amy, Metal Sonic, Chao Walker, Tikal, and Chaos 0, previously available as hidden characters in SA2, are now available automatically. Big has been replaced by a Dark Chao Walker. In addition, while the SA2 versions were just alternate sprites for the main cast, the SA2: Battle version of each character has unique attacks and different stats for top speed and acceleration.
