* ''AeroFighters Assault'' was a 3D flight simulation instead of a wacky arcade 2D ShootEmUp like the older games.

** The gameplay of the 2D games was eventually adapted to 3D in a new series that so far consists of ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DLand'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld''. While ''3D Land'' had very limited camera control (you could tilt it slightly towards the left or the right, but it would just snap back into its original position), ''3D World'' lets you change the camera angle with the WiiU [=GamePad=]'s motion control.

** The WiiWare and Gen 5 ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' games are rendered entirely in 3D; alterations to gameplay appear to be minimal.

* The ''Aliens'' franchise went from ''Alien Trilogy'' (2D-and-a-half world with sprite-based entities) to the full-3D ''VideoGame/AliensVsPredator'', with excellent results.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' was the first game in the TalesSeries to use 3D battles, although free-range 3D running didn't come until later with ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss''.

* ''SpaceInvaders [[http://www.infinitygene.net Infinity Gene]]'' was originally a 2D ShootEmUp released for the [=iPhone=] which takes the ''Space Invaders'' formula and gradually turns it into a modernised shmup. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VoUvIQiDIY The PlayStation Network/Xbox Live Arcade version]] takes the concept to its [[LogicalExtreme logical conclusion]] by implementing 3D levels in addition to the 2D levels. Your ship still moves in a horizontal axis in the 3D levels, but it definitely allows for more creative boss battles.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManX 8'' learned from X7's failures and turned the 3D conversion from Complete to Presentation, and the series was much better for it.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' was an EnforcedTrope for this, since Capcom was told they needed to make a 3D version of this before they could make 2D games for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation. As a consequence, while it's commonly regarded as an excellent game, it's more of an ActionAdventure[=/=]RPG than a run-n-gun platformer like [[VideoGame/MegaMan the main series]]. The main series DID get an actual [=3D=] installment in the form of ''[[VideoGame/MegaManX X7]]'', but it hit the PolygonCeiling, and quite hard at that with the random jumps between camera angles and poor level design. ''[[ViceoGame/MegaManX X8]]'' managed to break through the PolygonCeiling, but did so by virtue of being more of a Presentation Upgrade than its predecessor had been, barring a few vehicle sections.

* ''VideoGame/GrimFandango'' was the first post SCUMM LucasArts AdventureGame. The transition was traumatic to the genre. The 3D graphics were still crude next to crafted and detailed sprites in the late 90s. Grim Fandango suffers from the loss of [[PointAndClick mouse control]] and just moving across the map becomes tedious. All-in-all it was Gamespot game of the year, but it sold so poorly it became a GenreKiller in the minds of videogame producers.
