To get Knuckles: Beat Zone 2- Act 3 with Sonic as the leaderI have this. I could never figure out how to unlock anybody besides Sonic and Tails...
Personally I liked Sonic Advance 2 more.
D: That's very sad considering to 100% it takes a long time, what with getting all the medals on each run and such. I'm stuck on Altar Emerald XD I'm using Sonic and Cream as my team.This was a fantastic game, and I 100%ed it. Then I gave it to a friend for a week, and when I got it back, he had deleted all my save data. :/
I say it isn't.Is sonic 2 that much better than sonic 3? If so, I should invest in it!
I tend to like both Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 just the same.I say it isn't.
Sonic 2's levels are based a lot more around speed then anything else. It has a lot of unfair traps that you have to know are coming to have a chance of avoiding (prime example, on Sadv2's cyber level, there is a speed booster that sends you running up a wall, then gives you next to no time to jump on to a platform before you smash into spikes. It's bosses have some really unfair OHKO moves, and it's special stages are nigh impossible to enter, let alone beat. What's more is it requires you to defeat the game, chaos emeralds and all to unlock features that are already available or easy to unlock on the other two games (such as the tiny chao garden, which requires you to beat the game with two different characters, when Sonic Advance gives you it from the start).
It might be because I suck at video games, but the game seems mostly unfair and based on fake difficulty. I'd vote SAd2 the worst out of the trilogy, maybe out of the 2d games in general.
I'm interested to know why others say otherwise though.
As long as it loses the pimp slap of instant death attack (or are you refering the the sonic advance 1 boss where you fight metal knuckles).I tend to like both Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 just the same.
The levels I love in Sonic 2 are Emerald Hill, Chemical Plant, Casino Night(glad its on the 3DS), and Hill Top.
The level I love from Sonic 3 are Angel Island, Hydro City, Ice Cap, and Launch base. So as you can see I have equal favorites in both games.
I'm pretty sure whenever anyone mentioned Sonic 2 / sonic 3 in this thread, they were refering to the advance series. I was.
Though for the record I prefer actual sonic 3 over sonic 2 as well, though there isn't as much distance between them.
So Will-powered Spriter I too wish that the advance games make it even if its only the boss battles that make a return. through youtube videos I find Advance 2's Knuckles battle at Sky Canyon is an interesting boss battle and one that I hope for as a boss for the 3DS. I also find Cyber track and Altar Emerald boss battles as good candidates as well. But that just me. Lets keep our finger crossed for at least a few of these.
More like bottomless pits EVERYWHERE. That was Sonic Advance 2's major downfall - its level designs were awful and ended up sacrificing proper platforming with speed runs and timed jumps. Contrary to what many may think, Sonic isn't a series that focuses solely on speed.Sonic advance 2's levels are based a lot more around speed then anything else.

Yeah, in sonic 3 I liked the flow of the level design, and I love route 99. I know, I know, it's easy. But the level flows so nicely it's just really fun to play. I love the chao attacks too. I played around quite a bit to see what all the different chaos looked like when paired with other characters.More like bottomless pits EVERYWHERE.

I was refering to the pimp slap one. I saw the metal knuckles boss on youtube but to me it doesn't quite represent the friendship/rivalry that a Sonic vs. Knuckles boss like the pimp slap or mystic ruins knuckles fights.As long as it loses the pimp slap of instant death attack (or are you refering the the sonic advance 1 boss where you fight metal knuckles).
