Do Sonic's new parkour abilities enable him to run through this new 3DS title unscathed? Or is Dimps' new attempt at making a Sonic game a huge fall into a bottomless pit?
Every time Sonic Team tries to do something new with the Blue Blur it tends to fail in a big way. With a new way to play and a new look can this game run alongside some of the great 3D Sonic games or fall behind to the back of the race with the other monstrosities we dare not mention?
Sonic is back and doing what he does best, or is he? In the twenty something years the blue blur has been with us, Sonic has taken many paths. Some have lead straight to our hearts and won us over instantly, others have missed the spring totally and fallen forever into a bottomless pit. Other times its taken a while for us to see the whole point and accept that the game we are playing is actually any good, Sonic Lost World is one of those games.

If you've seen screenshots or gameplay videos of Sonic Jump you may mistake it for another Doodle Jump/Mega Jump clone. You're wrong. Sonic Jump is a port… of sorts… of a six-years old game. But is it worth your hard-earned cents/pennies?
Sonic 4: Episode I was mediocre, as we know. SEGA and Sonic Team heard our feedback. Has Episode II fixed what Episode I got wrong?
Ya Ya Ya Ya Ya! Crazy Taxi heads to iOS with some improvements over its HD siblings, but is it better for them?
Let me start this by saying I’m a huge fan of the Virtua Tennis series. Mainly the Arcade games and both VT 1 and 2 on the Dreamcast. I’ve spent countless hours playing the Dreamcast games both alone and with friends. From that point on, the only game I really enjoyed playing as close to the Dreamcast titles was the latest Virtua Tennis 4. Virtua Tennis Challenge for iOS is not a full-on VT experience but it’s as close as you could probably get it for a mobile app. There are no licensed pro players; only amateur replacements and you’ll have to get used to the controls…
The rise of the iPhone as a gaming device was certainly solidified when SEGA decided to not only release Sonic 4: Episode I for iOS, but to release it first before it's more established platforms. But is the transfer to the mobile platform a success and how well does a game developed for a joypad translate to a touchscreen device? Keep reading for this review I originally wrote back in October 2010, a few days after release.
Amongst all the excitement of the Dreamcast collection and possible Dreamcast re-releases, it seems that many gamers outside of the NiGHTS fan camp had forgotten about the humble SEGA Saturn. So lets celebrate the fact that Treasure saw fit to re-release one of the best SEGA Saturn titles of them all. Guardian Heroes feels right at home on Microsoft's own Xbox Live Arcade, but read CapnCloudchaser's review to see for yourself!
If you've been desperate for a SEGA equivalent to Mario Kart, then Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing (With Banjo-Kazooie in the 360 version!) is your game. Featuring a whole bunch of SEGA Superstars from various SEGA games, this should intrigue any SEGA fan. But is it fun as a racing game? Read CapnCloudchaser's review to find out.
The original Phantasy Star Portable felt like a complete cash in and rushed offline version of SEGA's main console Phantasy Star online RPG, Universe. Based on these criticisms, they went back and created Phantasy Star Portable 2, featuring more unique content and a slightly updated combat system with pacier, more challenging battles and, of course, free online multiplayer as nature intended. If you've got a PSP sitting around, then allow CapnCloudchaser to convince you to track this game down in our review.
When SEGA first announced their plans to re-relase some of the Dreamcast's great catalogue of games, they really had to start here, with the original Sonic Adventure. But have SEGA got the port right, and is it even worth playing the original 3D Sonic? CapnCloudchaser reveals all in this review.
Being a spy sure sounds cool. All those fancy gadgets, hot women, action packed shoot outs and sneaking around... And that is what Alpha ProtocoI aims to deliver, along with real choices and consequences. But does it succeed? Read CapnCloudchaser's review to find out if this game will make a spy out of you.
If you never had the chance to play one of the Dreamcast's more unique games, then fear not! Rez HD is a perfect port of the original, with a whole new HD paint job. Read CapnCloudchaser's review for the only love letter you'll ever need.
I think I'm a little too harsh on modern Sonic games. As much shit as I give them I did more or less enjoy Rush and Colours. They had their fair share of problems, sure, but they still had their moments. So anyway where am I going with this? Basically it's so you know that when I say Sonic 4 is a totally awful piece of software with hardly anything to redeem it, I'm serious.
What would happen if you took Shenmue and changed it's setting to a modern fictional redlight district of Tokyo and replaced its main character with a badass Yakuza? Well not this, shut up.
Sega Mega Drive Classic Collection Volume 1 is part of SEGA's ongoing attempt to put their old games on every platform available. This time going for the hardest market; the PC. As you can guess there's more than one of these each containing only a handful of games.
In these I'm gonna list down the games with my impressions of them, and these are old games so I don't think I need to go into too much detail so it'll mostly be if they're still worth playing or if they've aged well.
So last night I was feeling shitty so I didn't feel like playing Sega Mega Drive Classics Collection Vol. 1 or Yakuza 3 so I could get them reviewed. Instead I went to bed and just put something into my DS, so why not a SEGA game I can quickly get a feel for again and do a sort of quick review?
