ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Just ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHHHH! I spent at least three and a half hours playing this damn game, accumulating extra lives, scoring all seven Chaos Emeralds AT F%^&ING LAST! But what happens? Once again Death Egg Zone turns me into a frustrated enraged gamer. Seriously, I kill Silver Sonic in 26 seconds tops most tries, but no matter how many times I hit that bastard Robotnick I still wind up getting taken out, by some really cheap ass hell game mechanics... Can someone explain to me why the programmers thought it would be a good idea to have you fight both bosses without rings and... On top of that... When you hit Robotnick's big ass belly 5 times out of 6 you wind up going through his sprite to hit his spiked arm and get a cheap death rather than rebound back to the safety of the ground so you can dash across the room to avoid his metal fists of flying doom!!!! I may not have played Sonic on the Genesis, but I have vowed to conquer all of the games on my Mega Collection for GameCube WITH all of the Chaos Emeralds... A feat that is difficult at best when those damn Blue Sphere Special Stages always get the better of me... But I can understand that, since I haven't had as much practice as other gamers because I stuck to Nintendo consoles... Or rather, couldn't afford to have anything else as well Genesis/Master System. Why, why must these games destroy my sanity? Why must I slowly devolve into my baser instincts when I am trapped. Hell it wasn't like I wasn't taking my time and using strategy to win, but the damn glitch with the going through his sprite to hit his arm and die... That has to be the most annoying thing in the entire universe, and I died EVERY single time because of that. (Except of course for the times I screwed up on Silver Sonic due to my growing impatience and frustration at wanting to defeat the game with all seven chaos emeralds and get the good ending...By the way, if you have to use a continue do you lose the emeralds or is it only when you use the level select cheat... Which you can't do in Knuckles in StH 2 anyway, to get to Death Egg?) Ok, I'm done ranting now. Great game, fun as all hell, love the music, but SERIOUSLY WHY CAN'T I GO SUPER KNUCKLES IN THE LAST ZONE AND JUST WAIL ON ROBOTNICK? Fat Egg Themed Bastard.
