With Sonic 4 Episode 2 out this week, Matt Beaudette of Gaming Irresponsibly counts down his ten favorite Sonic the Hedgehog games of all time.
... for one, it just didn't FEEL like a Sonic game anymore, but more like a platformer starring Sonic. The levels just LOOKED too different from Sonic 1 and 2... ... and I believe Sonic now had an automatic 'grab' reflex whenever he ran/jumped through something he could hang on to, which was annoying cause it meant you would want to rush through and instead he'd suddenly grab something. Ruined the flow of the gameplay. Also wasnt't that impressed with the soundtrack after the great Sonic 1 and 2. I'm a little surprised that SonicCD isn't on the list.
you sure your not thinking of sonic and knuckles? Sonic 3 was awesome. Okay i just read the title screen says sonic 3 and knuckles =s they were two different games though. wahhh? lol
... I bought Sonic 3 for the Genesis/MD when it came out (I'm THAT old, yeah), cause I loved Sonic 1 and 2, but 3 just left me very unimpressed when judged as a Sonic game. I do believe Sonic and Knuckles was even worse.
Glad to see Sonic advance on this list, all 3 were really great games
