THE GOOD: Graphics are okay
Five characters to play as (after you unlock them)
Boss battles sometimes challenging
THE BAD: Gets boring quickly
I get lost so easily
SUMMARY: Sonic Advance 3 can be kinda fun at times, and I always like games where you have a couple of characters to choose from (five, in this case), but the game got really boring sometimes and in one area, I got lost for about three hours. The team thing, though, is a good idea. You can do different things depending on which character you have and which character is your partner. You start off only being able to use Sonic and Tails, but later can also use Knuckles, Amy and some bunny whose name I think is Cream. The bosses are pretty hard, but some are just annoying. The music in this game isn't that great, either. It's not exactly bad, but not good. Anyway, this is an okay game, but one I'll probably get rid of pretty soon.
THE GOOD: 2 Player and 2 Tag-team doesn't hurt at all. It's brillant.
THE BAD: No chao garden like Sonic Battle, but with a Choa Playground is no use at all. In other ways, Sonic Battle has no bad commets, exept the fun!
SUMMARY: Okay, Sonic Advnace 3
GAMEPLAY 9/10: First of all, this game is 2D and was released after Sonic Heroes lol. But the 2 tag works better than the 3 tag. Awsome!
GRAPHICS 10/10: For a while, the graphics are very good! The AREA 51 level is very colourful. Ocean base is the least but flattering!
SOUND 10/10: Wicked! Now If I tell you you will buy this game strait away, THE CHARCTERS CAN talk real sounds!! Plus there is not too kiddie music. But to be honnest, The sound is very good from very good.
LIFESPAN 8/10: Its hard finding the boss level so it takes time, and its quite long. I am on the 5 level and I took about 3 weeks, so it fairly good!
OVERALL 10/10: If you are a Sonic gamer, buy this game soever whatever. If you arn't buying this game will let you buy more!!
THE GOOD: ~ Good graphics when compared to alot of other GBA games ~ Proves that sonic still has what it takes to make a decent game ~ The moves with your partner, or moves depending on which partner you chose, is a good idea.
THE BAD: ~ Not much improvment from its predessecors, still room to make a much better game ~ Can become easily bored.
SUMMARY: When I got this game, I thought, woah this is a brilliant game. But the thing it lacks most, is its involvment. You will quickly tire of this, although it is alot of fun. But the thing that mostly wound me up, is there wasnt much improvement at all from Sonic Advance 1 & 2. They could have done so much more. But, if you are a keen fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, then go ahead and buy it. But if you just want a game to pass the time, dont get your hopes up with this one.
THE GOOD: Everything, the graphics are at least twice as good as the other games, the sound is mostly that of the first Sonic Games on the Sega, which hase a sort of homely effect. I can't explain how good it is. Find out for yourself
THE BAD: N/A
SUMMARY: The sheer quality of this game is stunning, if you like Sonic The Hedgehog, this is a 'must buy' game.
SUMMARY: this game was the most cool game I ever play, this powers and everything dr.egg man and shadow and all the weapons you need to have really good skills this game is very very hard and its my favorite its so cool I dream about a game like this its awesome you have to played to believe me. okay sonic fans am a sonic fan his the fastest in the world and this game have cool characters and levels I could tell you cheatcodes but i can't sorry sonic fans but you need to learnnnnnnnnnnnnn this by yourselfffffffff okay dudes.

After the atrocity that was Sonic Heroes, i had high hopes that the 2D sonic realm would continue to impress. fortunately, this time, it did.
Sonic Advance 2 was the pinnacle of the 2D sonic genre on the GBA. sega must know this, since Sadv.3 plays almost exactly the same.
But this time... there's a twist.
Instead of commanding one character and speeding through the level solo, you get to choose a second character to tag along. this works SO MUCH better than the sonic heroes system.
Basicaly, the second character acts like tails in many of the sonic games when you play as sonic. the other character will follow you around and offer a small amount of assistance such as collecting rings that you missed and attacking enemies.
In addition to that, you can hold down the R button to activate your teammate's ability. this is the main focus of the partner style of gameplay.
Depending on your partner, you can perform a new ability your character can't do alone. for instance, if you're using so...
THE GOOD: The voices, the controls, and the double characters make this game worth playing! Also, there is the old-time music, like the second level, Sunset Hill has the same music as Green Hill Zone from the old Sonic games.
THE BAD: Omochao is in it. (At least you can't hear his voice. <img src="/a_tongue.gif" border=0 vspace=2><br>Having to unlock Knuckles, Amy, and Cream.<br>
SUMMARY: This game is great! I don't know where to get keys to the special stages though.<br><br>The bosses are mad, but can sometimes be hard to hit.<br><br>Also the tag moves making it alot better, like being able to run at Supersonic speeds as Tails, or jump to the moon as Sonic.<br><br>I can't say much, as I am only on the 4th level, but up to here, it has been a bomb!<br><br>Likely to blow me up any second.
