They had this fascination with 3D effects, and only Sonic 3 & Knuckles did so in a way that was smooth and reasonable to play on.

How is Sonic 3 better than Sonic & Knuckles?

I never liked Knuckles as a character.

As split games Sonic & Knuckles is better because there are no water stages in it.

I mean I can see it going either way, Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles are pretty even keeled. I just don't care for Knuckles so that puts Sonic 3 above it personally.

Thinking back I just realized something; way back in the 90s I beat Sonic 3, and later on I beat Sonic & Knuckles as well. But I never did beat them co-joined together. I don't even really know how much this changes the games. :oops: Does it just let you play through all the levels in both games sequentially? Does it add new levels? What's the big difference here?

So the main differences are as follows:

You can play Sonic 3 as Knuckles
You can play S&K as Tails (once you've gone through Sonic 3)
The final boss of Sonic 3 is skipped
Once you reach S&K you can recollect the Chaos Emeralds; at this point you lose Super Sonic powers but if you get all the S&K Emeralds you now have Hyper Sonic, which is even more crazy than Super Sonic
If you have access to Hyper Sonic then you get access to the final True Boss Fight

Yeah, but those two can't get the True Final Boss; only Hyper Sonic.
