|I'm doing a full Knuckles playthrough now... so far I'm really enjoying climbing around and exploring everywhere and grabbing tons of rings/lives... and yeah I'm finding a ton more special stage rings this time. Sometimes I'm even getting time-out because I spent so long exploring.|
Most of the boss fights are really annoying with Knuckles, due to his gimped jump height and lack of a drop-dash ability.
Yay, now I can't glide or climb unless I turn super, which changes the music, makes my controls all messed up, and makes the levels/bosses way too easy. lol I really wish you could put Super mode on a separate button, just so you can play the fun special stages without having to lose access to your normal play style.
