Don't ya think the guys at SEGA were deliberately making S3&K easy for Knuckles? I'm crap at Sonic 3 when I get to Marble Ruin Zone with that boss, but with Knuckles I did the other one a whole lot easier. Another annoying thing was I completed both acts of Carnival Night Zone within 2 minutes. Plus Ice Cap was too short also. I currently have 5 Emeralds (when usually I'd have 2) and I've not used one continue (I usually use 59 by the time I get to Marble Ruin Zone). So, were SEGA being lazy, or just easy on new players?
