    Anyway, nice vid. My only complaint is that they didn’t even mention the move that was only used once in any official game (super peel out). :V

    Can’t wait for the next vaulting. 🙂

    I’m also enjoying this series of videos and wonder how many Sonic games they will cover in the vault. That would be cool if they cover the GameGear games, Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, and Knuckles’ Chaotix. I also hope they’ll base their main opinion of Sonic 3 off of S3&K and not on an incomplete game. While they view Sonic CD as the best Sonic game, that would be a shame if it’s because Sonic 3 released without its second half.

    Wai-wai-wai-wait. New Sonic games get heavily critisized over the use of boost pads/springs to induce speed, but this game, if I remember correctly, was chalk-full those. I could barely control my route through the level with all the stuff throwing me around.

      Boosters are only in one level: Stardust Speedway. Also, the springs serve a purpose. They are need to spark momentum/keep momentum going in order for you to time travel.

    What? What?! Where’s my precious Metal Sonic race? They showed him on the friggin’ cover.

    And did they just make fun of my Sonic R? You never, but never, make fun of my Sonic R.

    I wish he mentioned the different soundtracks. But oh well.

    Sonic R was awesome, Knuckles Chaotix is better than CD, and the Sonic 2 one is still the best.

      Knuckles Chaotix is the “Sonic 06” of the 16-bit era.

        Nothing is as bad as Sonic 06, regardless of era.

    Well that was a short lived experience. The video that is.

    Yet, the game seems to be pretty much covered.

    Think about it, Sonic CD did come before Sonic 3 after all.
    Technically, Amy Rose debuted before Knuckles, sort of messes with your mind.
    They’ll probably save Sonic and Knuckles for its own inclusion because of the epic LOCK-ON TECHNOLOGY.

    I dunno though, at times the level design of Sonic CD is weird, it’s probably much, much more enjoyable if you choose to ignore trying to time-travel in it.

    Sonic CD is my least favorite of the classic Sonic games, I don’t think it’s bad though. I can see why people could like it.

      sonic cd may be good, but it is TRASH when compared to the sega cd version (or even the genesis version!) of sonic megamix. I’ve been playing the 16-bit sonic games ever since I was a kid, and those games were the best games I’ve ever played, but when I played sonic megamix for the first time, that concept which was hard-wired in my mind about how good sonic games are was completely changed within 5 minutes. sonic megamix is nothing less than a masterpiece. it may be a hack, buy hey, we’re in the year 2010. we might as well put 20 years of technology to use to come up with a renovated sonic game that looks and plays a lot better than the shitty new ones!

    These videos are the best, but I disagree that CD is the best game, Sonic 3 and Knuckles is and allways will be the best Sonic game, but sonic Cd is a super close second, lets just say theres a reason fans went nuts when it wasn’t on Mega collection. I wasn’t thinking about this game when they did these videos, so do you think they’ll do Knuckles Chaotix? I enjoyed that game, and it sucks that it wasn’t included on mega collection. Also, I wonder if they’ll review Sonic 3 with Sonic and Knuckles, or do seperate videos, because Sonic 3 doesn’t stand alone very well in my opinion.

      He never said it was the best. He said “some feel is the best…”
      I’m sure Knuckles Chaotix wont be in the list, as it isnt very popular. Although I kind’ve agree with you, Sonic 3 is freaking epic, but alone, it doesnt go very well.

    Wait what? i saw that mini Sonic but you could do nothing with it

    Sonic CD was cool for me because I didn’t play it until gems collection was out on gamecube because I didn’t have a mega CD as a kid.
    So it was like shiny nugget of glory from the past that I hadn’t played before. It was awesome.
    I still like s3&K better, though.

      well you could’ve played it on an emulator. holy crap where the heck were you? you’re in sonic retro, the home of sonic megamix, which is the best sonic game hack in of all time. you’ve never heard of emulators before?! hey man, get with the times.

        I got Gems collection in 2005(I think?) and I didn’t start browsing here until like 2006 (finally joined the forum in 2007)

    “NEVER EVER EVER PLAY SONIC R” xD

    in my opinion (which is the best opinion if you think about it), the best 16-bit sonic games are sonic 2 and sonic 3&K. it’s hard to determine which one is better. 2nd place is sonic 1 of coarse. but sonic cd? nah, nah! that game is crap! When I first played it I couldn’t believe how bad the level designs were, all of them. I bet, that if you do the debug mode (let’s assume there is a debug mode in sonic cd), you can design a level that looks 10 times better than the one already in the game. IT’S FREAK’N RIDICULOUS PEOPLE! I’d be running in the level after doing a super peelout, and in the first split second that I feel that I’m going fast, that I feel I’m playing a sonic game, a freak’n obstacle comes out of nowhere and blocks my way! WHAT KIND OF POOR LEVEL DESIGN IS THAT?!
