Early development Sonic R Gameplay

For those youngsters who never played this game, Sonic R is a racing video game published by Sega for the iconic Sega Saturn console.

Sonic R features all of the lovable characters from Sega’s previous Sonic games in a 3D racing game, including the likes of Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Sonic & more.

Despite the fan base being torn on the game with the vast majority of players being concerned at how short the game was, it is still a collectible game.

As can be seen in the video below, there is a little look at the behind the scenes creation of the game thanks to a video that has arrived online showing a very early build of the Saturn classic.

The game is slightly rough around the edges in this state, one of the biggest issues, obviously, would be the lack of a moving hedgehog in his own racing game. However you have to admit it’s a cool insight into the game. With a side by side comparison at the end of the video, the difference is phenomenal.

If you have never played the game, the music and sound are really great, The FX are all traditional Sonic, but the music is the by far the best part. Listening to it now hits you right in the nostalgia. The games controls and overall game play were not as well-received by critics, questioning their accuracy.

Let us know in the comments below if you still have this in your retro collection.
