I had actually gotten Sonic and Knuckles right when it was released. It wasn't until like 5 years ago that I'd even gotten Sonic 3. That game is so awesome... I'm going to play it again sometime next week for sure.

Save states in the game are awesome, and it's a nice challenge, but, not so much that 1 in 3,000 people can only beat it.. Like some other super difficult games of that time.

Great but not so great like the both Games before.
Sonic 3 was very Long, but it was not this feeling, to play a masterpiece...8/10

This combined with Sonic and Knuckles is my favourite platforming game of all time. This game always got bonus points from me for having the save feature which allowed me to play any stage I wanted whenever I wanted (and to let loose with Super Sonic whenever I wanted).

Sonic & knuckles was much better than Sonic 3, I loved the game design and the bosses at every stage. Death Egg's cosmic stage was awesome.

Although If I remember correctly Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles could be combined through a cartridge openning on top of Sonic 3.

That way you could play both games as one straight story-line, Sonic 3's ending was kind of ... "huh?" so it was good a idea.

^ No when Sega of Japan saw that an American developer had surpassed them in Sonic 2 they got indignant and took merely the Japanese members of STI to create this. The rest of STI was forced to make crap like Sonic Spinball. Anyway neither Sonic 3 or Sonic & Knuckles were that great on their own, the whole lock-on thing was just a cash in for people to buy both games. That's not stopping me from giving both a 10 however.

Thought it was made by STI entirely.
