Sonic Blastman is a pure side-scrolling punch & kick beat 'em up in the Final Fight tradition. This game works well as Mr. Blastman has an assortment of comical but effective moves.Great backgrounds and plenty of brainless action. Check it out.

Le jeu ne souffre pas de défauts insupportables mais on peut définitivement lui reprocher la répétitivité des combats. Comme c'est souvent le cas dans les beat'em up, il y en a trop, ou tout du moins ils ne parviennent pas à se renouveler. On suit une ligne droite, avec une phase ascensionnelle au milieu, et on tape. L'absence de mode deux joueurs se fait aussi sentir dans la durée de vie, mais en même temps, Sonic Blastman II qui bénéficie de cet ajout perd énormément des autres qualités de ce premier volet. Taito a réalisé un bon petit beat'em up qui brille par sa différence. De l'originalité ! Heureuses 16 bits qui ne misaient pas systématiquement sur une license à succès et savaient prendre des risques pour nous offrir certes de petits jeux mais plein de bonne volonté.

Game Informer Magazine
Whatever fond memories you may have of side-scrolling brawlers, Sonic Blast Man defiles them; Forget controlling some cool dude on a noble quest to save his girlfriend; Sonic Blast Man looks like he wandered away from Dragon Con and started getting shanked by thugs. While it is satisfying to see the dingus get stabbed and sucker-punched, the game's feeble attempt to capture a kind of comic-book feel was clearly a higher priority than actual gameplay. Your moveset, though full of quirk, is unpredictable and clunky, and the variety of bad guys to pummel is poor even by brawler standards.

Sonic Blast Man ist eines der stumpfsinnigsten Spiele, die je in den Schacht meines Super Nintendos gelangten. Zum Glück bleibt uns eine PAL-Version voraussichtlich erspart.
