Advance 2 was the best of the Advance Trilogy and among the best handheld Sonic platformers.

Even if they revisited and perfected the Adventure Duology's formula, including the new and improved Chao Gardens hardcore Chao fans have wanted for more than a decade, Sonic Team should never make a game titled Sonic Adventure 3.

That Chaos Emerald side quest is too hard though.

Sonic Advance 3 was the ultimate evolution of the handheld Sonic platformer.

- Advance 3 was the worst one and not very good as a whole (put simply, I dislike the level design, felt bogged down and ultimately inferior to Adv1), 2 was really good.

- The pinnacle of handheld Sonic games is and always will be Pocket Adventure (special stages exempt of course) though. (I don’t think that’s necessarily unpopular, just no one’s played it to begin with sadly).

- I hate Secret Rings (it’s the motion controls for the movement, I actually kind of like it without them), but I’m oddly fond of Black Knight.

- Triple Trouble is actually pretty alright you guys.

- There is no Sonic game worse than Sonic Heroes.

- Forces is better than Generations.

- Generations wasn’t really that good to begin with.

- The only good version of Sonic 2’s half-pipe special stage is the one in Sonic Colors DS.

I liked the Werehog stages in Unleash more than the normal Day stages. I had trouble playing with how Dashing made it hard to see (everything got blurry :x) but smashing everything and anything helped with the stress that Day stages gave me :herosway:

The boss stages from Sonic Advance 2 were pretty fun.
Chasing after the boss gave it a nice feel of "I'm coming after you to defeat you!"
although difficult, the Special Stages were a nice way to practice sharp turns and planning ahead. I enjoyed them.

Sonic 3 & Knuckles can go die
although I don't have solid reason why I hate it, I just do. For some reason the gameplay doesn't please me..... maybe its just the visuals that throw the whole game off for me..

Sonic 06 is my favorite Sonic game because it introduced new to fairly new Characters (such a Silver and Blaze, Elise, Mephiles, SonicMan..etc.) and showed them in a new light with their own personalities making them easy to remember or forget. Story-wise I enjoy it even more because of how the events didn't happen in the first place.

The Chronicles of SoniChu is one of the best fan-made Sonic Crossover Comics ever.

It had a better storyline than the official Sonic Crossover Comics and actually funny dialogue.
and I’m still waiting for more

Here's one that's gonna make everyone want to kill me:
I thought Sonic 06 and Sonic Forces were the best Sonic games and still think so.
Listen.
If i were to say to you "Trust me when i say trust nobody." than what would you think?
Would you say "Okay."?
No. You would think.
When i say trust nobody, does that mean you should trust me? Should you not trust me? Should you only trust me?
Nobody knows.
So, i leave you with one saying.
Trust nobody when they say trust me.

Sonic R wasn't a bad game, and while Sonic Riders is by far the best whole Sonic racing game (as in not counting the All Stars racers), Sonic R is miles ahead of the other 2 Sonic Riders games.


Sonic Riders Zero Gravity is by far the worst Sonic game I've ever played. There's nothing redeeming about it except it added Blaze and Silver to the roster which helped a lot.

OG Sonic Riders is good but all the hoops you have to jump through to unlock everything is a bit much, and the roster is far too small. While I love the idea of character classes having unique shortcuts, it was very poorly executed, at most you just pressed a button when your floating class tv showed up on the map. The new characters were good but the roster was way too small, even with the SEGA crossover characters (who were welcome). It should've been given another year and released with Silver and Blaze, or even just add Espio/Vector.

OG Sonic Riders also has objectively the best artstyle of any Sonic game, with the original trilogy + CD being a second and Adventure being a close third.

Sonic Heroes is honestly one of my favorite Sonic games and, if given the option, I'd play it to full completion over Sonic Adventure or SA2 any day of the week. It also has by far the best setting, by far the least contrived story, and by far the most enjoyable soundtrack. If it wasn't for playing the same game 4 times over, and the poor exports to PS2/Xbox, I'd even argue that it's objectively better than SA/SA2.

Sonic Dreams Collection is an excellent representative of what a good chunk of the Sonic Fan-base is like.
erm.. well the bad side of the fan-base anyways.

or any fan-base really..

I like Big's design and feel like he, along with most of the Dreamcast era Sonic character designs, translated really poorly to 3D originally, even in their DC model incarnations. I think Classic Sonic's design would've translated to 3D much better (which was proven with how good the characters in Sonic the Fighters looked barring Espio who still looked really good in Sonic Heroes)

Somebody on Sonic Retro a while ago was trying to mod Sonic Adventure to have Sonic and Tails use their classic era models seen in Sky Chase throughout more of the game (at least in the non-Tikal flashbacks in Tails and Amy's scenarios), or modify their regular models to resemble their classic appearances more and retain their mouth movement rigging. People were considering tweaking the models from the Saturn games, but mouth movements were noted as being an issue.

Because I just think that Sonic 06 looks fun while Sonic Forces was fun, though the boss fights were kinda just a "Spam the X/A button simulator"
