I really like Knuckles Chaotix. It's a little on the easy side but it looks great and it's just fun to play  :)

Cool.  So, maybe this is better than some reviewers make it seem.

I have to say, I'm a huge fan of Knuckles Chaotix.  I think the issue with it is that it's not a straight up Sonic game, it has some unique gameplay elements that make it different.  Some people like that, some people don't (especially those who "gotta go fast").  To me, Sonic CD had pushed the 2D Sonic formula as far as it could go, so mixing it up with the chained second character (and resulting piuzzle elements) was a nice change of pace.

It's definitely an interesting Sonic game, but I'm really not entirely sure, speaking as a Sonic fan, that I could say it's THAT good. It's incredibly short, and incredibly easy, too. Most of the levels are pretty much identical, which explains why you play them in a random order. There's no loops, no water, nothing really to set each level apart. All there really is to go forward and sometimes up, and there's nothing in the level that really gets in the way of that or helps you accomplish that.

There's some cool ideas in there, I will admit. I like the 3D bonus stages, even if it feels you're always falling off of stuff when you SHOULDN'T be. Figuring out the Combiring thing can help you get some really big speed boosts, and it's really fun to plays as Vector and climb all over everything. The music's pretty great, too, but that's to be expected from a Sonic game, really.

@Ben was having a bash on this over the weekend. I actually quite liked it when I was expecting not to I think @Bobinator mentioned it was pretty easy and I found myself going through the game easily enough.. One I may well have to play on again.

I have Knuckles in a box somewhere. Never played it at length because I didn't really like the 32X. After reading zapiy's post my interest is stoked. Will have to dig this out and give it a play or load it up in Fusion.
Probably the latter as I have no idea which box in which building it's in. Damn incomplete Excel inventory sheet..

Yeah I was in Wales seeing some family and was shocked to see a cousin had it running and a few other retro systems.. Small world I thought but it turns out he was just testing them ready to sell on.

Those are all great games. I think Knuckles Chaotix should also be on any must own list for the 32X.

That is one game I do not have.  It is pretty expensive on Ebay!
