Rated 9 out of 10 by theinvader The final SA installment goes with a bang
This is a great way to end such a great franchise. It adds the ability to match your character up with another character. Whats even cooler is that the character combination determines the set of moves your character can perform which brings me to another thing. The characters have more special moves than ever before. Knuckles throws fire punches, and a rocket his head into his enemies and the attacks change if he is paired up differently. There is also the addition of metal sonic who shows up periodically to prevent sonic from saving the world. All in all I would recommend this game and all the SA titles. The reason this doesn't have a 10 like the first SA title deserves is because without the same chao garden as in the first, the lasting appeal doesn't last as long. However thats my only minor complaint with this amazing game. Buy it now!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Poof E Hair Sonic Advance 3
Just when I thought the Sonic franchise was down for the count, Sega decides to release the Sonic Advance series, a group of games that truly emulate the fun gameplay of the Genesis Sonic titles. Out of the three, I think the third iteration in the SA franchise is the best, just because they nailed everything that made the originals so great, and time and effort put in by the programmers really shows when playing this game. If you're a retro gamer who has a taste for Sonic games, this won't disappoint you like the 3D Sonic games. I honestly think that Sonic needs to stay in 2D for good, and if he does, he's that much better for it. Sega obviously cares about their precious mascot, and this game is living proof of it. If you see this game anywhere in stores and you like the speed Sonic is known for, buy this without any hesitation.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Sonic 101 Awesome
Sonic Advance 3 was better than anything I could have hoped for. The levels were difficult, but not impossible, and even when you finished the storyline, you weren't really done. The bosses were tough, the controls were convenient, and the teaming up of the characters were great. The graphics were great, and the length of the game was good enough where you wouldn't beat it in the first three days. The attacks and actions of the characters was plenty creative, and the music for each level suited it. The bosses were somewhat like the environment, and it was cool how you had to beat Metal Sonic once every act (I am not going to tell you when, because that would ruin it for you). The game was all around awesome, and I would recommend this game to anyone.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Dapigeater This game is horrible
I didn't like this game. The stupid layouts sucked. I can't believe this game is so popular. I've never liked this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by SilverPlayer45 Great and classic Sonic
This game is very good and it lasted long. ot like a game you play for a hour or 2 and just trade it in. A cool part was that you got special powers depending on the team you were on.
