Sonic Jam 6 is a hack of Super 1998 Mario 2, an unlicensed clone of Super Mario Bros. for the Sega Megadrive that uses tiles appropriated from Super Mario All-Stars.
The Mario sprite of Super 1998 Mario 2 was replaced by Sonic the Hedgehog, who is red without a mushroom and blue with one.
The title screen was also changed to feature Sonic, as well as the "intermission" screens that show you the remaining lives and the "Game Over" screen.

The purpose of Sonic Jam was, more than to simply celebrate the series legacy, introduce Sonic to a wider audience and serve as a sort of 'universe collection' to get Sonic Team in gear for a larger project...
The Sonic World, much like the 3D museums of the Namco collections, is essentially an elaborate interface in the form of a 3D platformer arena.
Sonic controls just like you'd expect, making use of the NiGHTS analog pad for control, spinning into a leap when you push one of the action buttons, and tapping his foot impatiently when you leave him standing for more than two seconds.

 Sonic Jam for Saturn Review - Saturn Sonic Jam Review
A true 32-bit Sonic title has yet to be released - last year's Sonic 3-D Blast was a port of a 16-bit title, and the latest Sonic game, Sonic Jam, is a retrospective of the Sonic 16-bit cartridges with a 3D "Sonic Museum" tagged on that offers little in the way of interest.
Sonic Jam is a historical document of how a great idea went from being "fresh" and "groundbreaking" to "mediocre" and "tired." With the original Sonic the Hedgehog, everything was incredibly new and interesting at the time.
Give Sonic the Hedgehog 3 a play, and you'll realize that while the game's graphics showed significant polish, the quality (as well as Sega's proverbial ship) was sinking at the time of the game's release.

But I made myself the happy owner of "Sonic Jam", the first in what will hopefully be a strong line-up of Sega titles featuring the blue one and his sidekicks in prominent roles.
What ultimately sinks "Sonic Jam" from the "must-have" status is the absence of "Sonic CD", which is constantly mentioned and rubbed in our faces in the museum but isn't included in the Saturn CD (a crying shame when you consider the amount of space left in the CD).
If "Sonic Jam" sells enough copies, then maybe Sega will let other third-parties do compilations of old Genesis titles; I would spring for a Capcom compilation featuring "The Punisher" and "Strider", but I won't be holding my breath waiting for it to materialize.

The biggest addition to Sonic Jam is the Sonic World, which is a 3D museum with history on Sonic, Music, artwork, character profiles and more.
The museum is in Mario 64 type 3D with Sonic at control to run around the museum, you can even catch a ride by Tails as he flies by.
Sonic Jam on Game.com version isn't as good as the Saturn version, it has all the side scrolling levels from Sonic 1, 2, 3, and Sonic & Knuckles.

 Sonic Jam Sega Saturn/Game.com
Sonic Jam, unfortunately for most Saturn owners at the time, was not the brand new Sonic game that everybody had hoped for.
You may be thinking, 'what's the point?' well, much is Sega's trait, they don't just leave it as a pointless compilation of Sonic games, although this is what most Saturn owners had pined for their old Sonic games back again, they'd rather have a disk that had an extra incentive to actually be worth buying.
The Hall of Fame is basically a history timeline from when Sonic was first unleashed into the world, until the 'present day' (the time the CD was made).

Attempting to blast off is an exercise in frustration and Sonic's jump isn't what it used to be.
A few of Sonic's animations have made the transition, but they're hardly noticeable due to the blurring of the screen.

 Sonic Gems Collection - www.ezboard.com
Personally I'd love the Saturn version of Sonic 3D because it had awesome Special Stages (the best in the entire series I'd say) that were absent from the otherwise identical PC version and the original inferior Mega Drive version.
It should include as many TV ads as possible, the Sonic X promotional pilot, the FMV intros/endings from Sonic CD (with both sountracks), Sonic 3D (Saturn/PC version) and Sonic Jam and all of the miscellaneous movies from Sonic Jam (the strange cartoon, the Sonic Ride etc).
Sonic Jam had an in-depth history museum covering the release dates of every game, with box art from all regions and other significant Sonic related events.

Sonic World is currently the best reference for Sonic-related information, but it stands as restrictive in that it allows no output for the multitude of media other than an NTSC television and that there is no catalog program for quick and organized access to the information.
Sonic Jam will appeal to people who do not own the Sonic games for Genesis and to people who must have everything that is related to Sonic.
Also, the Sonic games for Genesis are too recent to have the nostalgic appeal that Williams and Namco have relied upon with their compilations of games over 15 years old.

In the History of Sonic, for example, it's very difficult to read the text scrolling across the bottom of the screen because it suffers from artifacting.
Sonic Jam featured an awesome front-end that exploited the Saturn hardware to offer up a pretty 3D engine and some mini-games to go along with it.
There are a ton of Sonic games out there, and basically Sega has decided to start with the basic stuff it did with Sonic Jam and add to it with a few eccentric bonus titles like Ristar.

Sonic Jam was probably the best Genesis compilation of the 90's.
Inside Sonic World was a Movie Theater which showed Japanese commercials for various Genesis and GameGear games, trailers for the two part Sonic movie, and even Sonic CD's anime intro and ending.
There was a museum with all kinds of artwork, a list of every Sonic game released up until that point, and a place which had profiles of each Sonic character introduced up until that point.

In Sonic World, there are several museums: The Character House, Music Shop, Movie Theater, Art Gallery and Hall of Fame.
The Movie Theatre has several of the sublime Japanese Sonic adverts (if the phrase 'Funky Action!' means anything to you, you'll know what I mean), the Sonic CD intro and ending, a trailer for the two episode long Sonic anime and some CGs.

 Xcessive Gamer- Sonic Jam review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Anyone who tells you that Sonic didn't put Sega on the map obviously doesn't know Sega, because of Sonic's introduction to the gaming world, platform games, including Mario inspired a new aspect in platform games.
Plus, a series of videos showing the Japanese commercials of all of the Sonic games ever produced...yet what really brings it home is the fact that you also have the ability to save your games, set the difficulty levels, choose to play the bonus stages, beat them all, then start the game, and wait...there's more.
The only perk that I noticed cut corners were the bonus stages in Sonic 2...they appear to have cut back on the resolution to allow the level to maintain the speed.

Sonic World is a 3D environment in which you can get to lots of extra goodies on Sonic Jam.  You can also complete 8 "quests" in Sonic World, after which you get a "special surprise".  That special surprise is just the credits to the game.  Here's the different things in Sonic World:
See profiles for Sonic and hid pals, or Robotnik and his badniks.  It even has a few fl and white pictures if you press the L and R buttons when viewing a profile.
My favorite would have to be the Sonic CD commercial.  The Sonic 3 commercial is pretty nifty too tho.
