Pick One: Which Is The Best 3D Sonic Game To Date?

It's time for another round of Pick One! This week, to celebrate the upcoming release of Sonic Frontiers on November 8th, we thought we'd take a look back at the history of Sonic games on Xbox, and specifically the 3D titles.

We ran a similar poll on Pure Xbox last year where we included the 2D games as well, and Sonic Mania comfortably won the vote - although the 3D Xbox 360 title Sonic Generations actually finished in second place!

We've decided to leave off the spin-offs in this poll, so you won't find any of the racing games or Sonic The Fighters, for example. Instead, we're focusing purely on the core Sonic the Hedgehog platforming games.

So, let's give it a try - which is your favourite 3D Sonic game? Remember, you can only pick one!

Let's take a look at some of the highlights of what we're working with:

Sonic Adventure

An ancient evil lurking within the Master Emerald has been unleashed from its slumber by the devious Dr. Eggman and is on the verge of becoming the ultimate monster using the 7 Chaos Emeralds. Only Sonic and his friends are heroic enough to put a stop to Dr. Eggman and his evil minions.

Sonic Adventure 2

In the fight between heroes and villains, will you choose to save the world or conquer it?The hunt for the Chaos Emeralds is on and battle lines have been drawn between Hero and Dark.

Sonic Heroes

Sonic Heroes challenges gamers to control three characters simultaneously; each offering the unique individual ability of speed, power, or flight. Multiple teams follow their own unique story paths across 14 massive stages.

Sonic Unleashed

Having been broken apart by the evil Dr Eggman, it’s down to Sonic to put the pieces of the world back together again by retrieving the power of the chaos emeralds. In doing so, Sonic will find himself in a race against time and faced with an unusual situation that will challenge him in ways never before seen.

Sonic Colors

Join Sonic in the high-speed adventure of a lifetime! The evil Dr. Eggman has built a gigantic interstellar amusement park bursting with incredible rides and colourful attractions – but he’s powering it with a captured alien race called “Wisps.”

Sonic Generations

Sonic’s universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power comes into force, creating ‘time holes’ which take Sonic and his friends back in time. Whilst there, Sonic runs into some very familiar characters from his past including a younger version of himself!

Sonic Forces

Join Sonic as he tries to take back the world in SONIC FORCES, the newest game from the team that brought you Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations. The evil Dr. Eggman has conquered much of the world with help from a powerful and mysterious new villain named Infinite.
