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.

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

 Sonic the Hedgehog - Sega Genesis
"Sonic the Hedgehog is very original. It's worth a try today since it's an early example of what makes for a successful 2D platform adventure. To me, it possesses the perfect blend of challenge, variety and conceptual uniqueness. For those having trouble advancing in the game, I recommend buying it from Steam since you can create save points. Once you get that down, I think it's worth trying on any other console it's found on for the killer soundtrack and classic style." - teddykongcountry

 The Adventures of DinoRiki - NES
"This was one of those games that you rented from the local gas station, and took back the very same day." - sherberttcat

 Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed - Xbox 360
"Oh look. Sonic is copying Mario again. How new and exciting." - sherberttcat

 Double Dragon LCD Handheld - Miscellaneous
"Sadly, until the Gameboy was released, this was as good as handheld gaming got. We also had to hunt and kill cheeseburgers ourselves, using tiny, bun piercing spears!" - sherberttcat

 Nights into Dreams... - Sega Saturn
"Fun and inspired, though very confusing and vague at times. I could never get past the second bosses in this game; the game never gives you clues on what their weakpoints are. Still, these are just minor gripes. The game on the whole is a highly imaginative and beautiful experience." - Smash Bros Maestro
