Sonic plus Tetris? I don't know...
7 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine was perhaps a bit too deep into trying to make spinoffs of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Really, nothing more than a florified Tetris with some extra features, it's an okay game, but I only got it because it was included in a collection of games. Get it if you want, but I'd suggest the other Sonic games first.
