YMMV / Sonic Blast

  • Similarly Named Works: With Sonic 3D Blast on the Sega Genesis and Sega Saturn. Though not related beyond featuring the Sonic franchise and rendered sprites, Sonic Blast was released at the same time as Sonic 3D Blast, and marketed alongside it in North American advertisements. This did not happen outside North America, as the games are called "G-Sonic" and "Sonic 3D: Flickies' Island" in other regions.
  • So Okay, It's Average: While not poorly regarded like Sonic Labyrinth is, Sonic Blast is considered by fans to be an unremarkable game at best, and a big step down from Sonic Chaos and Sonic Triple Trouble, due to it's slow, clunky and all around uninspired design and low difficulty.
  • That One Boss: The Blue Marine boss encounter can be frustrating due to how sporadically the air bubbles pop up, dooming you to an unfair defeat. Oh yeah, and even if you do beat the boss, if you run out of air during your victory pose, you still have to beat the boss all over again!
  • That One Level: Blue Marine Zone due to the shortage of air bubbles, abundance of tubes, currents that push you into the wrong tubes, and the boss mentioned above.
