Classic 3DO Video Games

1. Lost Eden (1995): In this 3D rendered game, you play as a human in a world where dinosaurs and humans co-exists together. This game features many weapons and an excellent music soundtrack. Watch out for T-Rex because he is not domesticated and will kill your character quickly. It's also pretty cool that you can fly on prehistoric birds during the games adventures.

2. Night Trap (1994): This one player survival horror game features full motion video and vampires. Your character must trap the vampires by watching them move through the house on hidden cameras. The cut scenes were very scary and the footage looked real as can be especially for the time. This game was the first game to be rated M under the new, at the time, ratings system for games. The fact that it was being banned made it a must have video game for die hard gamers.

3. Jurassic Park (1994): This is a single player strategy game based on the film of the same title. Your character either fires at Dinosaurs on foot or has to drive a heavy duty Jeep while shooting at the big Beasts. Watch out cause the T-Rex will bite you in half. The game has nice cut scenes from the film and the music is intense especially during encounters with the prehistoric dinosaurs.

4. Flashback (1995): This one player cinematic platformer has beautiful sound, great music and the backgrounds are still amazing today. In this game you can punch, kick, climb, jump and.... Teleport. It's fun disappearing from one spot to another with a click of a button. Teleport in this science fiction game with polygonal graphics.

5. Crash 'N Burn (1993): This is a one player racing game in which you shoot as well as drive to complete your race, missions or career mode. Full motion video is used for all cut scenes which tends to be a head ache since it's a little scratchy.

6. Alone in the Dark (1993): This is a one player survival horror game filled with 3D animations throughout which is a first for horror video games at the time. Your character is trapped in a mansion full of evil armed with nothing but your feet, fist and whatever you can find. Use clues and search for ways to escape the horror.

7. Primal Rage: This is a one or two player one on one action fighting game. This game features intense blood and violence and the attacks are primal to say the least. Depending who is chosen, you can attack in multiple ways.

8. Madden NFL Football: This football game features commentary by John Madden and career mode where you can play through an NFL season to get to the Super Bowl. You can also build your own character and place him on the team of your choice.

9. Out of This World: In this game the character has a laser whip and a gun and has a 3D rendered environment. This science fiction game has Polygonal graphics and the music is creepy to be honest. The game is very unique for its time and the backgrounds are far different than anything ever seen before.

10. Foes of Ali: In this boxing game the fighters are real life boxers based on those who have fought Muhammad Ali during their careers. Ali is in the game also and you can build your own boxer and start a new career from scratch.

Foes of Ali

In Foes of Ali, all of Muhammad Ali's most famous opponents are featured. You can play as Ali fighting the other guys or you can play as one of the contenders and box Muhammad Ali in the championship bout.

3DO Review

3DO In The House

Panasonic's 3DO fell short of the competition mainly because it did not produce enough games. The video games that they did come out with had very good graphics, sound and most importantly they had fantastic gameplay. The controller was a perfect fit and simple to use and games such as Pro Golf looked real.

      I purchased a 3DO on the day of release in the UK, even though all my friends thought I was crazy (as it cost much more than its competitors).

      What an amazing console, also a great article. Brought back some fond memories.
