This is the best Sonic game, and possibly the best 2D platformer, ever!

Great grapics, music, and gameplay. Has great replay value too, with 3 different characters to play as, and 14 different emeralds to collect. Tied with Sonic 2 as my favorite platformers on the Genesis, you can't make a mistake giving this game a go.

What, you're asking if I'd recommend Sonic3? Seriously? Of course I recommend it! This game is pretty much the best game on the Mega Drive, after Dynamite Headdy!
