A much more fun Sonic game. Before Sonic was manipulated into a childish and arrogant punk for the official cartoon series, he was the dour, sophisticated and mute hero of these games! Brilliantly, this game introduced the Save game function without the need of a memory card or any other add-on. The levels are fantastic as are the power-ups and special stages.

When in need of a best-seller, always slice a game in half and release it as a full one. Always the best solution, right? Not this time. This is a pretty mediocre game. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 was set to be released as a huge 34 meg Sonic adventure, which makes it a second to Sonic CD. That is, until a strict deadline and a dirty marketing scheme Sega had. The result was Sega slicing up the game in t... read more

During my later grade school years, the 16-bit machines were at the height of the industry. To most, and because of Sega's more than successful advertising, the in-thing was to own a Sega Genesis over a Super Nintendo. Seriously, anyone who grew up during this era has to remember that the "Genesis did what Nintendon't." While the Genesis would be doomed to live out its final days as the guinea pig... read more

"No.141 / Added: 10.26.11 / Status: Played The experience offered in Sonic 3 meant a lot more to me when I was a younger and thought it was the Genesis equivalent of Donkey Kong Country 2. Today the game feels barren with its obsession on speed and leaves the carefully constructed platforming of the original in the dust. A true shame and it’s rather difficult to find comparable games that have suffered such falls from grace."

Seriously, anyone who grew up during this era has to remember that the "Genesis did what Nintendon't." While the Genesis would be doomed to live out its final days as the guinea pig for failed add-ons, I have to admit there were Genesis titles I was fond of despite my love for the Super Nintendo.

As if one has to guess, Sonic the Hedgehog was at the top of that list, and at the top of the Sonic the Hedgehog list was Sonic 3. While I can't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday, I can sure as hell remember playing the hell out of this game during the brief time” read more

PK's Favorite Video Game Characters (22 games items)

" Knuckles the Echidna Sonic may avoid getting tied down, but he has charisma and can get along with others. On the other hand, Knuckles is fated to his duty of protecting the Master Emerald and has a course, aggressive personality which puts him at odds with others. In his line of work this manner of interaction is necessary so that he can live in isolation and be on guard against potential emerald thieves. Though it certainly doesn't help him when another trait of his - his gullibility - gets"

" Sonic 3 (and Sonic 3 & Knuckles as well as, to a lesser extent, Sonic & Knuckles) is one game I've pretty much mastered. I've played as all three characters (as well as both Sonic alone and Sonic with Tails), gotten all the emeralds several times, and blasted through the levels as Hyper Sonic, Hyper Knuckles, and Super Tails just for the sadistic joy of it. If any game needs a remake, this one isn't it due to the exceptional state it's already in. I still wouldn't mind one with extra levels, A"

"Finally a sonic game where you can actually save woohoo! This game is still tough as nails it is a sonic game after all. I hated that water boss where your forced to spin around his tank and hit him. Ill never forget that punk I'm glad the game is beaten now!"

" Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic's got true personality and lovable flaws. I love how he takes everything so lightly and yet has befriended over-serious characters like Knuckles, Shadow, and Blaze. He does what he wants, which thankfully is usually for the good of Mobius, and even defies authority on extreme circumstances because of this. His free-roaming spirit is hilariously challenged by Amy's advances. He's consistent, too; you can always count on him to be himself and do the right thing. I parti"

Pretty Mediocre

“When in need of a best-seller, always slice a game in half and release it as a full one. Always the best solution, right? Not this time. This is a pretty mediocre game. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 was set to be released as a huge 34 meg Sonic adventure, which makes it a second to Sonic CD. That is, until a strict deadline and a dirty marketing scheme Sega had. The result was Sega slicing up the game in two halves, and this is the one you don't want to get, unless you have Sonic & Knuckles, the second half. Why? Because, since it was cut in half, it turned out to be the most glitchiest and smallest Sonic Genesis game ever. It shines with the graphics they are perfect, and almost of Sonic CD, the sharpest of the series. It's just perfect, and Sonic, Tails, and Eggman have been remodified to look th” read more
