sega has redone a lot of classic genesis games in 3D...they've released quite a few this december...

Sonic the hedgehog

super hang on

Space Harrier

altered beast

shinobi 3

streets of rage

ecco the dolphin

galaxy force II

------------------------------------

ok...so i bought some of these and they are amazing.. they have cheat codes built in!

on sonic 1...if you choose special on the menu.... then you have the option of picking any stage you want to play. even the final zone and the specia lstage. and you can listen to any song from the game. and you have the option to spin dash in this game.

on altered beast you can choose random in the menu which lets transform into a random beast for each stage...i am a bit sad that there is no extra lives option...makes the game a bit hard....the wii VC version had a 99 lives option. EDIT: turns out all thes game have save states....so you dont need extra lives... you can just save state your way to the end.

super hang on...lets you chose the difficulty and amt of time for each checkpoint...the wii version had this too...but on the 3ds you can extended the time even much further...and if you choose the easiest difficulty then the other racers cant touch you lol..you can go through them! very easy...even wii didnt have this option. you can still get hit from the trees and billboards on the edge of the road though.

on streets of rage...if you choose death fist....then you kill each enemy with 1 punch! lol super easy mode...on the original game you could choose your difficulty... you can do that here too...but you can also choose how many lives you get..(up to 7) and you can choose which stage to start at.. like sonic.

i didnt realize this games were so packed with options and cheats!

i also bought ecco,space harrier and galaxy force2....but havnt tried them yet....who knows what goodies theyll have.

That's great, and I love those games. But we've seen these titles released so many times now. You can get them on the xbox live market/psn and steam and even buy them bundled in disc form. What took them so long to bring them to the 3ds?

I'm definitely gonna buy sonic, as I cannot resist not having it on the 3ds. :P

Nice. Good to hear. I wonder how sonic will look in 3d :P

it's fair to assume that 3d means 2d with layers of depth, right? im still a little programmed in thinking 'now in 3d' means polygons and shading.

I picked up Space Harrier 3D. If you like the game, you're gonna love this version. The 3D works really well, seeing that you're flying into the screen. They added a feature (which can be turned on and off) where the screen tilts as you move, reproducing the moving cabinet of the arcade. It's a neat feature that works best in 2D, since you'd lose that "sweet spot" for 3D fairly often.

I will most likely pick up Galaxy Force 2 because the 3D effect should be just as cool. They also added an enhanced graphics mode, adding things like transparencies for smoke, which I'm sure are helpful since there are so many objects on-screen.

My only wish would be a cross-buy feature since Space Harrier and Super Hang-On are already on the Wii Virtual Arcade. I already have those games but decided to still support M2 and bought Space Harrier 3D. But I don't want to buy every game a second time.

I'd love to see Out Run, Thunder Blade, and Power Drift, to name a few.

I bought Shinobi 3. It's awesome and stuff, but all it's really accomplished is making me wish I could buy Shinobi Legions.

Those cheats are pretty cool! I may consider getting Sonic.
