Which level where you most proud of when you A-ranked it?

This is the forum for discussion about the Sonic Adventure series (originally for Dreamcast and GameCube)! That's SA1, SA2, SADX, and SA2B! Post here for help, or just general chat about it!

A Ranking all of Crazy Gadget, Sky Rail, and Mad Space in the same day was pretty boss.

Once you've mastered Crazy Gadget, the universe is your plaything.

^I never mastered Crazy Gadget (because I never got around to it), but beating City Escape a 800+ times will also let you control the universe.

My most prestigious A Rank is probably... Security Hall. No, not the first mission. The first mission is pretty easy at this point. I mean Mission 3.
I don't know if I missing some shortcut, but for some reason I almost always get a B on that mission.

That or Metal Harbor's 4th Mission.
Metal Harbor is the world's most meticulous level. It only gets harder when you can be a few seconds off at the end. And I like that. Everything after '06 stopped trying remotely, unfortunately.

Also, Fun Fact: It's literally impossible to get a B Rank or lower on mission 5 of Route 101 and 280. There's not enough time, you have to get an A.

^Most hard modes in SA2 are like that; if you can't A Rank it, you can't finish it.

Metal Harbor is a beach. You have to know exactly how to time all your moves to A Rank it, and if you don't navigate the rocket platform *perfectly* you can't win.

I don't think I've ever gotten an A rank on the first completion of any Hard Mode mission before actually. (Other than the kart levels, of course.)
I've gotten Bs at best, but I think my Rank for Eternal Engine is like D or something. I didn't care, I just wanted the Chao racing kart for finishing all for Tails' missions.

I was so happy when I finally A ranked Route 280 Mission 4, which took me ALOT of attempts. I can't go too fast, and at the same time, I can't go slow either.

Obviously by now, I got all the 180 emblems in the PSN version of SA2B.


Oh yeah, I was also happy when I finally A ranked Crazy Gadget Mission 5. I died from the enviorment LOTS of times in M5
How was that? Perfect, like me?

From my experience, Pyramid Cave Mission 1-5 A ranks were actually not so hard to achieve since I just stuck to the main plan:

Get as much hoops as possible, and combos on those annoying robots. For Mission 1, at the part with the checkpoint and the hourglass that leads down the corridor filled with hoops and Boom Boos, on your first trip, ignore the hourglass and go down only to get the most hoops you can get, then after you return back up via the hole in the ground near the timed door, go down again but use the hourglass and hightail it down there, like there is no tomorrow, because those Boom Boos HAVE a tendency to take away time if you happen to run into one of those dastardly phantoms
How was that? Perfect, like me?

Pumpkin Hill. I wasn't even going in there to A-rank it. I was Skeleton Dog grinding when I got the first piece. Then the second came into radar. Before I knew it, I A-ranked Pumpkin Hill, a big improvement from the initial E-Rank.
I am NOT the only person to exist that likes Sonic the Fighters. Just so you know. :chaohappy:
