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

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

 Forza Horizon - Xbox 360
"I had a feeling they copied test drive unlimited. The only thing that's different is that the graphics are better. Fantastic game though. But next time I want to see properties you can store your cars in. And maybe integrate the multiplayer with the single player." - segagtstig6940

 Atomic RoBo-Kid - Sega Genesis
"The story is cool, the graphics are great, the weapons are awesome, but the Atomic RoBo kid sprite is too big. If that's supposed to be a kid, it mutated into a giant. Since most of the game is spent in tunnels it makes it hard to maneuver past the barrage of enemy fire. Still very playable, but not the best shmup on the Genesis." - grandmasterp

 Star Wars: Battlefront II - PlayStation 2
"My favorite Star Wars game ever. I prefer the Xbox version, however." - sgtbarone

 PCP Station - Miscellaneous
"Ashens does it and know cgr undertow does it, thats awesome" - sonicfan
