Should probably play Sonic 3 and Knuckles anyway to get used to controlling Knuckles since he has a gimped Jump compared to Sonic and Tails, assuming Knuckles in Mania plays the same as Sonic 3 Knuckles.

But yeah 3 is way different from 1 and 2, as well as having a lot more stages and 3 endings for each character technically thanks to the Super Emeralds.  Also Loopy-Loos.  Glorius Loopy-Loos.

I'm sure it's better than 1 and 2, but I've played later 2D sonics like the Advance games and couldn't get into them either. (Granted those were DIMPS). Never played the 2d stages in generations more than a couple times either. It's just not really my thing.

I love you almost as much as I love booty parades.

Honestly you really can't compare Sonic 3 to the Advance titles, not even the 1st Advance game, or Generation's 2D stages to be blunt here, it's like comparing Apples to Oranges. 

Not to mention the game is only $5 on Steam.

Well Advance 1 wishes it was Sonic 3 and Knuckles, 2 does it's own thing and 3 wants to be Knuckles Chaotix, and probably a worse version of that.

I'm gonna get Mania anyway, so if S3&K is anything like it then I'll contemplate coming back to it.

I'm in the minority that likes Advance 2 the most in the trilogy.

Advance 2 was pretty good, but kind of hard to get used to and getting 100% completion is utterly BS.

I just didn't like Advance 3's partner system.

It was a huge step up from Chaotix, sure, but it was too slow for me.

Just emulate it
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

Yeah but that's work.
And also better reason, I don't have any of my controllers atm. My brother's borrowing them for the time being.

The nice thing about Sonic is playing it with a keyboard feels completely natural since its a one button game.

Provided you're good at playing Platformers with a Keyboard.

Also whatever you do don't play as Sonic and Tails together unless you have a second Player, Tails with Sonic can make life difficult........

This is assuming you didn't use that cheat code in Advance 1 to have Sonic and Tails together and give you a taste of how AI Tails can screw with you.

AI Tails is only a jerk in Sonic 2 where he can severely hinder one's progress in a special stage.

And while most platformers with a keyboard are hard (especially ones that use more than two buttons to control like Mario World or Megaman X) Sonic is really simple because you only ever need to use A and the arrow keys. If it weren't that simple they'd have never done those excellent mobile ports or those old PC ports back in the day.

Oh yeah that's right.

Still the only use for Sonic + Tails is the jump assist, but you can only do that in multiplayer or with the Sonic 3 Complete romhack (which you should play over regular Sonic 3 and Knuckles, lots of nice little fixes and stuff to make the game more fun.)

It also seems to take inspiration from Dust Hill Zone, the cut level in Sonic 2.

Yeah my understanding its taking Dust Hill, Desert Dazzle and some extra Native American/Southwest influences.

Plus the Nack/Bean/Bark posters, the SegaSonic Popcorn Shop, the COPE and CPU on the subway train. Lots of little fun nods to the franchise's old days. owo

There's also a picture of a redesigned Egg Robo and Egg Robo's hand and gun are a level set piece in Mirage Saloon.
