Summary

The Best Sonic Game!

The Good

This game also appeared in 1994 six months after Sonic 3 as a continuation to Sonic 3 because this game and 3 were supposed to be the same game but they could not fit them both on one genesis cartridge so this is the only sonic with a direct pickup of the previous one. After the Death Egg crashes Sonic ends up in Mushroom hill and must get the emeralds Knuckles still convinced that sonic is his enemy still gives sonic a hard time with tricks and traps.

This game adds multiple things new to the series like the lock-on cartridge which allowed you to play Sonic’s 2 and 3 with Knuckles and reach new areas Sonic could not access playing with Sonic 3 locked-on you could play through Sonic 3 and Knuckles the way it was meant to be and you can play through Sonic and Knuckles “campaign” with Knuckles who can climb and glide and this game is longer than Sonic 3 by itself. This game also has many memorable moments like the fisticuffs fight with Knuckles and his realization of how Robotnik is really an enemy and how angry he is that he’s been duped and is a dramatic scene.

The Graphics, music, and sound effects all shine with great track such as Mushroom Hill Zone, Flying Battery Zone, Lava Reef, and the Rebuilt Death Egg which is not completely finished yet, Ode to Star Wars?

The Bad

This game has nothing particularly wrong with it, honestly.

The Bottom Line

So this being the best Sonic game ever PLAY IT!!!!!! I don’t care how just do it and do it before anyone realizes you haven’t played this yet.
