Two more Sonic Game Gear games for 3DS inclu-DEAR GOD NO!!!

What?! I don’t und-…wh-WHY?!!

Okay, before I freak out some more, let me clarify. The Australian Clarifications Board has rated Sonic Blast and Sonic Labyrinth (the game that most people see as the WORST Sonic game of all time) for the 3DS Virtual Console. Now, I can’t say much about Sonic Blast because I haven’t played it. But from video I’ve seen and reviews it’s gotten it doesn’t look too hot. Then there’s Sonic Labyrinth. A game where Dr. Robotnik’s big idea to stop Sonic…is to steal his shoes. It’s the Sonic game where Sonic is SLOOOOW! Sega, these are the kind of Sonic games you bury like E.T. carts and never mention again. It’s the equivalent of Nintendo putting those horrible CDi games on the Wii. These kind of games only hurt his reputation and give the haters more fuel.

Sonic Blast and Sonic Labyrinth should be available later this year on the 3DS Virtual Console for the morbidly curious.

    A copy of the original PAL Sonic Blast boxed recently sold for over £200 on eBay. While paying any kind of money for that game is daft, think about whoever bidded that game that high up for a moment. 😛

  2. I can see the press releases now: “Get LOST in Sonic Labyrinth!”

    “Sonic Blast, it’s a BLAST!”

    I actually enjoy these two titles. While a bit clunky Sonic Blast has some pretty fun levels and I thought the visuals were pretty impressive for the Game Gear. Sonic Labyrinth was definitely a very different spin-off title, but I kinda like the “puzzle” element of it.

    This is surprising. I did applaud SEGA for re-releasing all of the early Sonic titles onto the retro collections (except Knuckles’ Chaotix) for the proper and complete old school Sonic collection. But if you’re going to sell these individually, don’t you want to release your gems first? Sonic Chaos? Tails Adventure? Sonic 1 & 2? Perhaps some non-Sonic titles? I guess they could’ve done worse though. They could’ve re-released Sonic Spinball (GG).

    Sonic Blast is the worst Sonic game in existence to me, I rather play Labyrinth.

    While I agree that these are both terrible games, I’m not sure it’s accurate to say that most people think Labyrinth is the worst Sonic game ever. Not because Labyrinth is good, but because Sonic 06 is arguably worse.

    I dont think sonic labrynth is that bad. It would be like saying a sonic puzzle game is crap because it doesnt have speed. labyrinth is sort of a puzzle game and i think more people should apreciate it for what it is. It was actually a pretty decent game gear game to have

    There’s lots better Game Gear games (yes, I still have my original GG) to go with but I guess they figure the Sonic name will ensure some buys.

    Sonic Blast was AMAZING!!! But Labyrinth was tedious and slow.
