Summary

The Dark Ages...

The Good

How can MobyGames expect me to say anything good about this piece of shit? Well it's Sonic so I suppose it gets some points for that.

The Bad

As if Sonic 3-D Blast wasn't bad enough Sonic Team decided to give us Sonic Blast. Yay? No. Sure it had decent graphics for what it was but Sonic and Knuckles were HUGE! So big it looked as if they were moving slow (thus taking away the reason we love Sonic) and to top it off the sprites look like shit and half the time you can see through them!! And when you think it cant get even worse Sonic Team decided to place the ring counter near the middle of the screen! So if you were to say run into a large group of rings you would't know what the counter was and what wasn't. Boring ass boss fights top this off as Sonic's second worst game,

The Bottom Line

Never under any circumstances buy this!
