Sonic 3D Blast
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Dr. Eggman (AKA Dr. Robotnik) discovers unusual birds known as Flickies that can transport to anywhere using Dimension Rings.
Successfully capturing the Flickies, Robotnik turns them all into robots to help him find the Chaos Emeralds. Sonic must save the Flickies by freeing them from their robotic prison and prevent Robotnik from finding the Chaos Emeralds.
Good idea but poorly executed.digiconner | May 12, 2014 | See all digiconner's reviews »
As the title says, the game has a good idea, in that you have to collect a certain number of the Flickies from enemies to progress through areas, however the game is not very well done. The attempt at 3D graphics is awful, the camera sucks and this is the only game I have ever felt motion sickness from. This is not a very good game.

More like a test than a game, Sonic 3D Blast adds the third dimension into the Sonic universe. Sadly, beoing such a test title, they had to cut some elements as high speed and fast long jumps in order to be harmonically functional with the upgraded scenery and maps. Even though, the evolution of Sonic games took a gigantic step with this title.

Sonic's first endeavour into the third dimension is an experimental one. While the gameplay is new and interesting for a sonic game, it lacks the speed and flow of jumping and running other sonic games have. There is a collecting element present as well and it changes the pacing a lot, which might not be for the best. Gathering flickies (the bird friends of sonic) can be kind of tedious.
Nostalgic values aside, sonic 3d blast is still fun to buy and play.

Sonic 3D blast is very different from other Sonic games, here the speed is not the main core of the game and you need to explore and save the Flickies, It was a very acclaimed game thanks to the 3D feeling that the game gives but it is a bit outdated right now.
Overall, It is still a good game.
