Croc: Controls are a little iffy but passable. I think I'll have fun going through this one, but it's hard to deny I kept thinking how much Nintendo nailed 3D movement + camera control in that era.
Sonic 3D Blast: It's not as bad as I was expecting, which is good? There's some neat visual tricks, but it does feel somewhat unfinished; the sections where it freezes while loading are off putting.
Bug Too!: It's more Bug, but the music isn't as annoying as the first.
D: Had to buff the disc a little to get it to run (both discs look like they were crappily resurfaced, I need to find a place with a good machine again) and watched the opening FMV. Looking forward to dedicating a Saturday to it.
Quake: Even having played Powerslave I can't help but be amazed by this. Sure, it has some frame rate dips and distortion. But the sound, the controls, the atmosphere...this is definitely a landmark achievement on the console.
Yeah, I agree with croc. You do get used to the controls, but the camera is a constant pain. That said, for its time, it is understandable so I can forgive it for a lot of faults. I had fun, it´s just a shame it is pretty much one of only a few 3D platformers for the system (the only one I can think of at the moment is Tomb Raider, which is poo)
I hated Sonic 3D Blast when I played the megadrive version. It starts out tolerable and just ends up getting annoying real fast. That said, maybe the Saturn version is better? I dunno.
Your comments about Quake got me excited. I´m playing through Duke at the moment after beating Powerslave, and Lobotomy have pretty much nailed console Duke. Using items is a bit of a ballache though.
