- Awesome Music: The soundtrack makes excellent use of the Genesis' hardware. It could even fit a Sonic game very well.
- Most Annoying Sound: The low-health beeping puts Pokémon to shame.
- So Bad, It's Good: The US box art◊. Socket's character design in-game and in the Japanese box art is much more pleasing.
- They Copied It, So It Sucks!: The game received mixed reviews at the time of release due to taking so much from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. The UK-based Sega Zone magazine gave the game a score of zero on the very basis of this trope.
YMMV / Socket
