Sonic R has appeared on the failed Sega Saturn and the PC.

You get to choose from a selection of characters, each with their own abilities. Sonic can double jump, Tails can fly (For a limited time), Amy drives a car that can turn into a boat, Knuckles can glide, Eggman can shoot missles, etc. However, that's one of the complaints about the game. Tails's tails make a really annoying spinning sound, Amy's car is too slow, and Eggman needs to pay 10 rings per missle he shoots.

(SPOILER ALERT RIGHT HERE)
The unlockable characters are Eggman, Metal Sonic, Metal Knuckles, Tails Doll, EggRobo, and Super Sonic. Metal Sonic and Knuckles can glide on water, EggRobo is a robot equivalent to Eggman, and Tails Doll......just floats. He has no special powers other than floating....
(SPOILER ENDS HERE)

There are only 5 courses. Wait...just 5? Compared to Mario Kart's 20? Wow. Each course has their own gimmicks, of course.

There aren't really any flaws with the racing, but the CPUs can be cheap at times. There are Chaos Emeralds and tokens hidden in the courses. You have to be in first in order to keep the emeralds, but the tokens have a different story. When it comes to looking for the 5 tokens in each course, it's like playing a 3D scavenger hunt without any enemies. It doesn't matter what place you have to be in when you have all 5. Getting all 5 in a course lets you unlock a character...after beating him to another race.

What is confusing is that once you start up your game after beating it, you'd think everything would still be there, right? Well, it doesn't turn out to be that way. You have to save/load your games every time.

Unfortunately Sonic didn't see much the light of day on the 32-bit sega saturn. And the titles featuring sonic on the Saturn is either a port, SONIC 3-D BLAST, or compilation, SONIC JAM. Both pretty good, but neither having brought anything new to the table, with the exception of SONIC JAM, in where there is a fully 3-D Sonic world<---though very small and not entertaining aside from it's content.

Sonic R, was the 3rd (SONIC DRIFT 1&2 gamegear) of failed attempts in Sonic's racing genre. although this game features no go-kart racing aside from amy/eggman. But, what makes this games worth picking up it's the sheer rarity of Sonic on the Sega saturn.

Sonic R isn't really a bad game, but it isn't really great either. ok defines it over all.

graphics: 4 out of 5
probably the only thing good about this game are the graphics. with fully textured polygons and very colorful charaters and enviroments, the graphics alone will keep you playing just to see the next stage. There is a bit of pop up in the distance, as is typical in older systems, but won't effect the gameplay at all. The level design, admittedly, is very well done and looks just like what you'd expect a 3-D sonic game to look like. especially the final stage, my personal favorite!! If you look at some small details in some levels, you will see that Sonic Adventure on dreamcast definately borrowed some of the object designs as they're almost identical except the 32-bit, 128-bit difference.

gameplay: 2.5 out of 5
in sonic R, R is obviously for racing duh. well it isn't exactly set up like a racing game. you have to push up on the d-pad to accelerate and many people find it frustrating trying to accelerate and turn using only the d-pad.

The Game Itself is a bit frustrating but The Graphics/Scenery are amazing and the Music is just awesome, If you have a Sega Saturn, I would recommend it all the way, Besides Two of SEGA's Forgotten characters made their first and last Appearence in this Game (Spoiler) Metal Knuckles and The Tails Doll, yes, if you've heard of the Tails Doll from the internet, he is real, (well By that I mean hes not fanmade..I mean come on its a floating doll that has a Lifeless expression that looks like tails, and apparently, your not supposed to play the game at 11:00 PM, since 'the Tails Doll will come out of the Game and eat your soul', load of crap I know)

Ah, Sonic R for the Sega Saturn, Sonic's first venture onto a racing game and I loved it. ( and still do ) Back in the hay day of 2D games Sonic R was the first full 3D sonic game on the Sega Saturn, there was the hub world in Sonic Jam but that was only a part of the game. In general, I love racing games and Sonic R is not a normal racing game at all! It was brought to us by Yuji Naka and the Sega Team in 1997 and I still find it to be a great game even today. I remember buying it in 1998 two or three months before the demise of the Sega Saturn. ( a tear drops from my eye! ) The powers that be and the Nintendo Fan Boys pretty much poo-pooed it because they were comparing it to Mario Kart, ( an awesome game ) but it's not the same type of game. In Sonic R the emphasis is on jumping, exploring, collecting rings, the multiple tracks and finding all the hidden areas the game has to offer. The worlds are similar in looks to early Sonic games and that's always a good thing for us Sonic lovers. The game moves along at a fast 30 fps, and the worlds are well drawn and colorful. The music is so happy and bouncy it can be a bit overwhelming at times, but it is well written and it fits the overall feel to the game. I love the fact that you can control the weather in the game. If you choose snow, you can run on top of the frozen water instead of sinking, and that's cool! ( no pun intended ) The control took me a bit to get used to, but on the 3D controller ( or my fighter stick ) it makes it much nicer to play. There are Ten playable characters, five to start, there is: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Dr. Robotnik! There are also five unlockable players: Dr, Robotnik's Egg Robo, Metal Sonic, Metal Knuckles, Tails Doll, and Super Sonic. ( very fast!Read more ›
