Sonic R is the last Sonic game on the Saturn and this time, Sonic, his friends, and his foes star in a 3D racer. On the one hand, it does pull off some nice graphical tricks. On the other, the controls, especially the turning, leave a lot to be desired. Its soundtrack is full of cheesy Europop, which is either adored or despised.

Unused map graphics for each track. The map for Radiant Emerald is just an "X".
