Do we like Marble Garden?

>> No.6738970


>> No.6738971

there's no *we*, reddit refugee subhuman

>> No.6738975

Doesn't it feel like it drags a bit? Enemies like the grasshoppers that ambush you Metropolis-style, and mechanics like the spintop.
I want to like it, because I think the music and aesthetic is top notch, but can't bring myself to like the design.

>> No.6738976

Sonic was not every good.

>> No.6738986

Marble Garden's fine, though it obviously doesn't seem that great sandwiched between the greatness that is Hydrocity and flashiness that is Carnival Night.

>> No.6738994

Carnival Zone is such a let down after the great pinball-themed Spring Yard Zone and Casino Night Zone.

>> No.6738997

I don't think Carnival Night's that bad. The first act is a breeze but to a new player the second act is basically just hell.

>> No.6739018

it's my favourite Sonic 3 & Knuckles stage
I like the art and music a lot.
I also like the bouncy thing that you trigger by spin dashing

>> No.6739107


That stage music is comfy.

>> No.6739205

This. I like the zone, but at the same time I feel it can drag a bit.

>> No.6740004

its my least favorite zone in sonic 3 somehow below carnival night. its just boring. not a whole lot going on and its not very interesting aesthetically either. just kinda filler.

>> No.6740035

and yet it's still better than any level in any Sonic Advance game.

It's my least liked zone of Sonic 3. It just feels very boring and plain in designs.

>> No.6740623

The worst classic stage along with Oil Ocean.

>> No.6740632

Carnival Night is worse than either.

no, i always want to skip it and hydrocity

S3&K levels took me too fucking long to finish, and this one timed me out. Fuck this level, good music though.

Where did all the lava from Sonic 1 go? Weird to bring this zone back from Sonic 2 but not it's main attraction.

It sounds like Michael Jackson's thriller.

It sounds like trippy indian music

>> No.6743504

Marble garden is one of the best levels. It's intricate, good atmosphere, music gets stuck in you're fucking head and it's got the best secrets. People who don't like marble garden, were hit in the head too many times as a child by their abusive black step dad's named tyrone

It’s a fucking classic

Nothing wrong with reddit though.

I'm not that guy but how can you call the first level to let you run on water the worst

>> No.6744772

it's still a water level, and its name causes spergouts to this day

>> No.6744793

Tidal Tempest is the most boring, it's worse than Labyrinth. Great music but it has absolutely nothing going for it.

>> No.6744879

Try not to play it fast.

>> No.6744951

Act 1 is pretty fun. Act 2 can feel a bit slow at times.

>> No.6744958

I actually really like Chaos Angel from Advance 3.
Music Plant from Advance 2 was also pretty cool.

>> No.6745448

Prove it.

>> No.6745581

Played through it recently in complete collection and I like it, it's an integral part of showing off the island.

I hate Carnival zone though. Fucking thing sucks.

>> No.6745618

It has the best boss fight in the series, at least

>> No.6745632

I like it, and I really like hilltop zone.

It is a really good boss, isn't it? Thinking about it, it's a ton of fun.

What's not to love?

>> No.6749176

It's a fun but incredibly flawed stage for a number of reasons. Those being:
1) The sheer number of obstacles that break your pace and flow - the spiked balls, crushers and especially the spinning tops.
2) The spinning tops being an awful pace-breaking gimmick that can't be avoided.
3) The awful boss design if you're playing as Tails alone.
4) The stage being suited for Knuckles and Tails, but not Sonic due to the sheer number of steep hills, points of no return, exploration rewards usually being in high places or requiring Knucles/Flame Shield.
5) It's a stage riddled with blind hazards to the point where it only becomes enjoyable if you're Super/Hyper.

>> No.6751349

It's not my favorite from Sonic 3, but still above Carnival Night Zone for sure.

>> No.6751362

Same, I just love that sound effect.

>> No.6753030

Seriously this was uncanny as hell.
Sonic 3 in general ditched the psychedelic and otherworldly feel of Sonic 1 and 2 and went for a much more real world approach.

>> No.6753040

Sure , why not? The sonic trilogy is perfect so therefore the levels are too.

>> No.6753057

The original classic Sonic trilogy is Sonic 1, Sonic 2 and Sonic CD

>> No.6759727

I'm biased because I think Sonic 3 vanilla was the best one - of course, I like Marble Garden because it is precisely what Sonic 3 and Knuckles was going for.

Large, expansive levels designed for exploration. I get how it's different to Sonic 2 and CD.

>> No.6759732


Casino Night just seems so old to me - the Vegas motif and music is really retrograde.

>> No.6759742


The worst Sonic zone is Labyrinth followed by Metropolis.

>> No.6760302


>> No.6760318

I feel it begins to drag right at the point where Robotnik causes the second earthquake in Act 2, a little before the Boss proper.
