Fans recreate Sonic X-Treme, the cancelled Saturn game

DSOGaming writes: "Back in the 32bit days, Sonic X-Treme was meant to drive Saturn sales to new heights. Unfortunately, SEGA decided to cancel the game as it was not up to the Sonic standards. That didn’t seem enough though, as fans decided to recreate this cancelled Saturn game on the PC. So, Sonic fans, meet Project AXSX. Developed by Andrew75, Project AXSX promises to be the true Sonic X-Treme and its public beta is available for download." (PC, Sonic X-Treme)

never heard of thisd game before
seems to have a "bug" type of style. With much more twists and turns though.

Seems as though fans get the games they want after all. Even if they have to make the game themselves. Brillant! Keep up the good work! This can be something. =D

I love my saturn and I love Sonic, but this looks like a pain in the ass to play...great concept perhaps, but the execution, yikes! That'd give me hours of frustration!

Sega lawyers will be sending threats at any moment, get it while you can. Lord knows sega can't stand fans making better sonic games then they do.

"A" for effort, but it looks like too much stop and go gameplay, and not enough free running blasting through landscapes and loops.

Back in 1996, this game would have given Mario 64 a run for it's money. It's very easy to mark the game as outdated due to the concept being 16 years old. But this re-creation was very well done and Dark Sniper will definitely give this game a spin. He's always wanted Sonic Xtreme and now it's here.

Next up is a Resident Evil 1.5 re-creation. That would really excite the retro gaming fans out there.

$niper
