  1. Is Ocean Base designed to purposefully be a load of wank? I refuse to believe someone made this level and thought "yes this is fun and fair. This is what people want from level design". It was certainly designed to make people angry.

      It's like Altitude Limit in Rush.

      Altitude Limit is cheap and has its issues, but IIRC is kind of fun once you know it. I'll get to Rush eventually. If not after Advance 3, then after Battle.

      I still really enjoy the story in Battle, the gameplay not so much.

      I remember liking Battle on all fronts. The gameplay was repetitive and shallow, but fun to get into all the same. And I loved how its story was picked up and continued in Advance 3 and especially Chronicles. It's such a huge shame that SEGA have had drop it all entirely.

      I had a lot of fun going for the S rank on Altitude Limit, not denying that it's poorly designed tho.

      I never had that much trouble with ocean base. I suppose the crushers suck, but I usually ran into them when they were already down, I guess that's just random chance though.

      @Shaddy ZaphodIt's not even just the crushers. It's the boosters that lead into spikes and springs that fling you into enemies and the general shit the level throws at you without notice. People often complain about Sonic games having cheap obstacles that you can't see because you're moving too fast. It's debatable how often that's genuinely the case, but it's certainly the case throughout Advance 3 so far. Ocean Base manages to be much worse than Sunset Hill and Route 99, although those levels are riddled with problems too. There's one part in Sunset Hill 3 where you hit a spring and have to land on a moving platform that's off screen and over a pit. This game is a joke.

      Eh, never really felt that bad to me.

      When was the last time you played the game? It had to have been around 10 years in my case.

      Earlier this year. I played through just about every 2D game in the series, which is how I learned that Knuckles Chaotix is really lame, that Colors DS is surprisingly good, and that Generations 3DS is probably the most soulless game in the series.

      Advance 3 is easily the worst in the trilogy.

      I like the tag actions and some stuff in the game, but it's filled with flaws and annoying stuff.

      For example, I'm going to spoil you that you will die in Chaos Angel act 2 (or 3, can't remember, that one act almost entirely set on a big moving platfomr) due to a line of rings giving you a fake hint that will lead you into being crushed by a block of solid stone before you can even react. Even if you know about it, you will still fall in the trap anyway.

      I hate Ocean Base too, it's boring and repetitive, and the hub world is one of the most annoying to navigate in the entire game.

      i kinda like the aesthetic of ocean base, and i think the music (all three acts and the hub world) is actually really good.

      but other than that...yeah.

      @Iko act 3 is the stupid "conveyer belt over a bottomless pit" stage.

      it's esp. maddening considering a. they decided to waste the entirety of the last regular stage in the game on such a tedious gimmick and b. for something so lethargic, that one gets a hype, climatic banger to go with it

      when i listen to chaos angel act 3 i imagine a level that's just a madcap finale segment, something akin to final rush/final chase, the boost sonic portions of eggmanland or terminal velocity to go with it. instead of that total coput the designers actually went with.
