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.

RECENT CGR COMMUNITY REVIEWS

 Geometry Wars: Galaxies - Nintendo DS
"Sure, Geometry Wars: Galaxies for the Nintendo DS is flawed. The frame rate is shaky. The controls fall a bit short of perfection. The visuals lose a little something in their translation to handheld. Nevertheless, Galaxies brings the Geometry Wars experience to the handheld domain with very playable-- and enjoyable-- results. Expect plenty of new areas to play, each with its own amount of challenge and fun. Galaxies can be had for $5 of less today, and is definitely worth a pickup." - PeteSkerritt

 Final Fantasy IV - Nintendo DS
"I'll admit to a bit of bias here: Final Fantasy IV was the first RPG I ever played, back in 1991, when it was called Final Fantasy II for the SNES. I've loved the game since, and have played several versions of it. This version for the Nintendo DS is one of the best I've played. Rearranged music, fully-voiced cutscenes, new features, and more await the seasoned FFIV player. For those who haven't played FFIV yet? There's no better time." - PeteSkerritt

 Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow - Nintendo DS
"I'm a sucker for "Metroidvania" games, and Dawn of Sorrow is a great example of this invented genre. There's a lot to explore, an addictive quality to leveling up Soma, and it's fun to collect all of the souls in the game to strengthen your character and his abilities. The drawing aspect (via Magic Seals) can be a bit frustrating when trying to execute it after a tough boss battle, but it's an acceptable flaw that gets better with experience. Recommended." - PeteSkerritt

 Pilotwings Resort - Nintendo 3DS
"It's almost too easy to lose track of time while playing Pilotwings Resort-- especially if you're in Free Flight mode, checking out all of the landmarks that the game has to offer. This isn't the most intense game, but that's okay; Pilotwings Resort will test your skill and also allow you the freedom to explore the island and all that it offers. As the game is really cheap to buy now, give it a try-- it's perfect "before bed" gaming to unwind after a busy day." - PeteSkerritt

 Nyko Worm Light - Game Boy Color
"Terrible unstable gimicky heartbreak of an accessory. Barely usable for anything other than making children cry. ...and adults." - stridermt2k
