Sonic 3 for Mega Drive
Sonic became an overnight sensation on the global stage after his 1991 introduction, and next year’s follow up increased that fervor exponentially. With the third entry, developers Sonic Team were ready and willing to push the boat out farther then it had ever been before, and the result is plain to see. Expertly crafted levels that reward both in depth exploration and fast-paced play in kind; a boss battle at the end of every act; truly stunning graphics and music; and little touches like different backgrounds in each Act of a given Zone, and clear transitions between levels. If any of the early Sonic titles can be called truly Epic, it is very much this one. Even without it’s second half- Sonic & Knuckles- Sonic 3 is an entertaining, in depth platforming romp from start to finish!
