  1. I finally played Sonic Mania. Just beat it as Sonic with a mere 4 chaos emeralds because the special stages are nearly unplayable. It's a decent game, but S3&K is so much better it isn't even funny.

      I think S3 and Mania are on around the same level

      I hate & Knuckles though, and the &K stages in Mania are about as un fun as they are in the original game

      Special stages are actually quite easy once you master the controls.

      The controls with the special stages are the biggest problem, the UFO flies really far away as well. And those special rings are hidden good, way more hidden than Sonic 3. Some of the bosses were annoying as well, the Flying Battery spider comes to mind immediately, though I didn't really enjoy any of the heavy fights. I swear the missiles in the Studiopolis one have broken hit detection. It also includes a lot of crap from the classics that has no business returning, like including Sonic 1's final boss and Death Egg's sub boss from £&K because... nostalgia?

      I think I'll like it more when I revisit it.

      Honestly, Mania's special stages are one of the only two instances of them that I would ever actually call "fun" in the entire series (the other being Rush's). I was all for them being left in the dust before Mania if I'm speaking candidly.

      Other than that yeah, I was never the highest backer of the game to begin with so eh. In its later levels, it definitely falls into the same trappings that have always made me question the classics more often than not and it's clear that the game's main drive is to emulate rather than innovate. Though with that being said, I can see why it is loved so much.

      Outside of the many things it does do right, there's also clearly a lot of love put into it.

      It took a bit, but I came to like the base game's special zones. They're pretty fun to run through.


      The DLC ones are torture and I do not recommend them if you don't want to tear your hair out.

      Yeah, Mania's special stages are bar none my favorite in the entire series. Once you nail the flow and learn how to use the jump as a drift for tight corners, they're seriously addictive.

      They are pretty difficult. I must confess that I still only have one emerald from encore mode. That gets tough XD

      The special stages take getting used to, but they're not bad at all. 

      In other words.
