Die genannten Positiva summieren sich zwar nicht zu einem Überspiel, Sonic-Fans, die sich am durchdachten Leveldesign einmal festgebissen haben, werden jedoch nicht enttäuscht sein.
The Genesis and Saturn versions are essentially the same: Rescue birds called flickies, collect golden rings, and bring down Dr. Robotnik. Problem is, while 3D Blast is super by 16-bit standards, it falls flat on Saturn, where 32-bit games with far more sophisticated 3-D graphics and gameplay are the norm.
The bottom line with Sonic 3D Blast is iffy. I can't really say that it's a bad game or a good game; I can't really decide on a score. Let me sum it up like this: it's probably worth having if only to say you've got all the Sonic games for the Genesis. It won't be your favorite, but it'll be addicting for a while and even after the first rush wears off you'll still come back to play it every once in a while. By all means you could do worse, but there are probably better choices out there for you. Just go pick it up and decide for yourself whether it's worthy of being the final game in a legendary series for a legendary platform.
The Video Game Critic
Unlike the original Sonic titles, you must move slowly and deliberately to avoid obstacles. Another problem is that the control, although responsive, requires you to jump directly on the robots, leaving little room for error. Since control is a bit slippery in the first place, it can be frustrating as you hop around frantically trying to land on something. Another problem is the fact that the levels are connected, and you can accidentally fall back into an old level. This needlessly wastes time as you need to find your way back. There is no save feature, and it takes a good amount of playing time to make it to the later levels. Finally, in order to break down certain barriers, Sonic needs to utilize a new spin move that makes him look like a ballerina - not cool!! All in all, it's a nice-looking but forgettable game.
