Sonic 3D Blast - Sega Genesis

Sonic goes isometric in his fight against Dr. Robotnik. Using rendered sprites and focusing energy on maze-like level design, this departure from traditional Sonic titles stands out amongst the litany of other Hedgehog titles during the Genesis era.

This game can be fun. The bad points are the slippery controls, a poor isometric viewpoint and a boring, game long objective. Save the birds. That's it. the music is good and the boss battles are the best part of the game. some time the game opens up and becomes fun. That's only when the bids are easy to find and the controls aren't holding you back

This was a disaster only redeeming quality is the music that's the only reason I give this a 2 never will understand why they took Sonic out of 2d format skip this one if you never played it

Nothing you can ever say to me, will justify this game's existence.

There is a major learning curve involved in mastering the controls and perspective in this game. For what it is, I think it looks pretty damn good. The music is great, as always. What you end up with is an extremely challenging Sonic game. Not challenging because of enemies, but challenging because it's like trying to drive drunk...and blindfolded. It can be fun, though. I suggest everyone try it.

This might be the best review I've ever read. On anything.

Slippery controls, momentum and an isometric perspective don't work well together. I remember getting this game for birthday when I was 13 and puking out of dizziness from the first minutes of play - but I soldiered on, and eventually came to grips with the perspective. Graphics look OK - all pre-rendered 3D - but the main thing in this title is the music, it's just incredible.

A game that I think is underrated. Technically the first time sonic is in full 3D, I think it is quite fun with amazing special stages and interesting enemies, but sometimes Sonic is a bit hard to control. There are lots of levels and bosses to beat, proving for a game that will last a while.

RECENT CGR COMMUNITY REVIEWS

 Crash Bandicoot - PlayStation
"One of the best games available for the original PlayStation. The level designs were colorful and quirky and the characters were lovable and silly. The platforming was supremely satisfying and there was a nice variety in the levels. Naughty Dog hit a home run with Crash Bandicoot." - Parker

 Guitar Hero - PlayStation 2
"The game that started the music video game and plastic musical instrument controller craze. There is quite a good selection of music, with Crossroads being my favorite, and the gameplay is smooth and satisfying. There are different difficulties so anyone can pick it up and play and when you nail a solo on expert difficulty it is quite a good feeling. I've been playing guitar for over 10 years and while I can already play the songs in the game in real life, it is still a damn fun time." - Parker

 Polar Rescue - Vectrex
"The game is pretty fun to play simply because it is on the Vectrex but once that wears off the game really isn't that great. The overlay looks pretty nice though." - Parker

 The Tomb Raider Trilogy - PlayStation 3
"A great trilogy release for the PS3. And I always make Lara leap to her death. It's a wonder I ever completed them when I kept doing that." - scarecrowchan

 Rock Revolution - Nintendo DS
"Considering the fact that I hardly enjoyed Activision's effort at bringing the Guitar Hero franchise to the DS a few years back, there's no way I would be able to tolerate Rock Revolution. It looks like a half-assed attempt at best. At least with Guitar Hero DS you would have the button attachment and even though it wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be, it still functioned well enough. Who in their right mind would want to tap and swipe music notes, it looks boring and repetitive." - mikamifan92
