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.

I wonder how much better it would be if it was tilted 45 degrees. It still holds nostalgic appeal with me but I didn't get very far when revisiting it on the emulator. The music is nice and so are following flickies but even with its redeeming qualities, one should spare themselves this particular blast from the past.

I don't think it's as bad as everyone says. The graphics are neat looking considering this is for the Genesis, though it's not as artistically impressive as the 2D Sonic games. And collecting stuff in this game is surprisingly fun. I think the biggest problems with 3D Blast are that 1. the game is never fast, and 2. the gameplay gets old after about 10 or 15 minutes. I can't recommend buying this game on its own, but chances are if you DO play this game, it'll be off of Sonic's Mega Collection.

Kinda bad. The flicky-saving gameplay is boring compared to other Sonic games and the controls and perspective will have you crashing into hazards that you meant to avoid. That said, the soundtrack is excellent and it deserved to be in a better game.

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

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.

 Low G Man: The Low Gravity Man - NES
"Low G Man is an ok game and not a bad pick up since it's very common and a cheap grab. You play as some dude who can jump really high and use's a stun gun and a spear as his primary weapons. You can also collect additional weapons from enemies. There is some decent strategy to use for each enemy you encounter. Mostly by freezing your enemies with your stun gun and using your speae to finish them off. There is unlimited continues so beating the game just takes practice on one playthrough." - Truxton4life

 Axelay - Super Famicom
"Technically impressive among SFC Shooters, Axelay blended traditional side-scrolling with a Mode 7 generated behind the craft view angled to create the illusion of depth - clever implementation of the era's tech to simulate 3D. It resembled Thunder Force with mechanics involving switching weapons on the fly, with a touch of Gradius in how initial load-outs were configurable to liking. Konami's admirable attempt at bridging concepts of genre elites to yield arguably their finest Shmup of the era." - leaon79s

 Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron - Xbox 360
"Although largely unaltered in essence, 'Fall' distinguished itself in how characters & gameplay styles were switched between missions instead of merely swapping factions midway through. Environmental variety and character specific systems further address the blandness of the first, with Dinobots & an engrossing multiplayer as cherries on the top. Slightly lengthier, with production values surpassing those of its predecessor, and an epic final showdown & ending enough to give fans the goosebumps." - leaon79s

 Transformers: War for Cybertron - PlayStation 3
"The first in a duology widely regarded as the best incarnation of the Transformers in gaming. A competent TPS that subplants the typical cover mechanic with the titular transformation hallmark, it reignites the events of the pre-exodus Transformers homeworld, brimming with imagination & evident passion for the source material. This first title successfully showcases the vision but comes up a bit short on satisfaction - denying fans the all important Optimus VS Megatron showdown until the sequel…" - leaon79s

 Lightening Force - Sega Genesis
"The beauty of this game (& its series) comes from staying alive by switching weapons to adapt on the fly, every failure costing one of those precious weapons - Something lost on those who exhaust lives on the basic level of the ship. But if you can handle it through the first 5 stages without succumbing, the revelation will dawn on why this is considered one of the best shooters ever. The reward for finesse & precision being the thrill of sweet victory that is earned, short-lived as that may be…" - leaon79s
