Sonic Adventure 2
Route 280

Next stage >>

Route 280 is the tenth stage of the Dark story in Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. The player controls Rouge in her white kart.

Description

Route 280 is the Dark story equivalent to Route 101. There are also more turns in the road and less Rings, Balloons, and checkpoints.

Story

After finding out that Tails was awarded a Chaos Emerald, Rouge takes to the highway to track him down.

Gameplay

Route 280 has a number of gaps, meaning that if Rouge falls off the course, the player will have to start again from the beginning. The control scheme in this stage is the same as in Kart Race Mode.

Overview

1st Mission: Chase the Tornado!

2nd Mission: Collect 100 rings!

Along the way, the player should hit all of the Balloons that appear on the path. Each of these objects contain power-ups holding between ten to forty Rings. As long as the player avoids any large mistakes, the mission should be fine.

3rd Mission: Don't hit other cars!

This may sound easy, but if the player is not careful, this mission can be extremely frustrating. The player should take their time and not be afraid to hit the brakes, even if the goal is to score an A Rank, as three minutes is a generous amount of time to do so.

4th Mission: Don't hit the walls!

Everything from the last mission also applies here. Additionally, the player should not try to power slide, and instead take the turns slowly. Only using the speed boost on straight stretches can help to further avoid the possibility of hitting a wall.

Last Mission: Clear Hard mode!

In Hard Mode, the amount of time given by checkpoints is decreased.
