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.

The least fun Sonic game is still, at least, a game worth owning and playing.

Not as ballsy as it could have been, but certainly not as bad as most people make it out to be, right there.

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.

 Medal Of Honor Warfighter - Xbox 360
"A short but well-made game. The game doesn't differ that much from other military shooters; you get reliable and consistent mechanics, plenty of variety in both the settings and the gameplay. It is also a highly immersive game in terms of visuals and sound. What IS different is that the game focuses more on creating an engaging storyline, on something the gamer can empathize with - assuming s/he is mature enough. Consequently this is less of a kids' game than the other military shooters around." - unsheep

 Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days - PlayStation 3
"Fantastically dark and gritty. While our mainstream media wants 'deep' and 'intellectual' shooters, them not being fans of shooters to begin with, I want the exact opposite. I want something dark and grim. This is one such game. One that is refreshing in its honest violence. There's no pretense of an antihero here, this is a story of primal revenge; one Bad Guy going after another. While the game is very short at 6 hrs or so, it is filled with intense shootouts and spectacular action sequences." - unsheep

 Crash Twinsanity - PlayStation 2
"With bullcrap level design designed to take lives, an absolutely tiny collection of levels that is smaller than Markiplier's little Tim Tim, and an incredible library of glitches that rivals the Nintendo DS and PlayStation 2's game libraries combined, it's ridiculous that developers Traveller's Tales released this pretty mediocre game at this rushed state just so that Neo Cortex could say "Come, as we explore a new dimension! Should have been two dimensions, but we ran out of time" ingame." - truxtonvectrex2084

 Kane & Lynch: Dead Men - PlayStation 3
"While the combat mechanics were rather sluggish, the rest of game makes up for it. What you get is a gritty and dark action game with protagonists that seem taken from movies like Pulp Fiction, shows like the Sopranos and games like GTA. The storyline was good enough to be memorable. The portrayal of the two characters was excellent, on the same level as in a Rockstar game. Most of the game follows an action-film-like sequence of events with fast-paced action yet plenty of variety. A cool game." - unsheep

 Rage - PlayStation 3
"A cool steampunk storyline with decent narration, lots of gameplay and mission variety. The combat was brutal and gory, you get to use an awesome selection of weapons and the enemy is merciless.It took me about 20 hrs to do everything I wanted in the game because there's plenty of side-missions and racing to do. I actually spent a fair deal of time on the racing, which was great fun because you could upgrade your vehicle in a number of ways. A really cool steampunk adventure." - unsheep
