Terriblye. Too simple for even a newbie to the game to get within a couple of hours. I know it's a shot game, but it's like they didn't even try. Even the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 achievements were comparably tough and fun to unlock.

I assume they don't bother this time because they wanted to kept "fun" achievements for Sonic 3 & Knuckles. If it has seperated achievement list that is.

Anyway, waaaaaay easier than Sonic 1/2. Meh; I enjoyed playing through Sonic 3. *wub* Roll on Sonic & Knuckles


(that and do speedruns for Sonic 1/2... after I finish Final Fantasy VII.)

Way too easy, at least Sonic 1 and 2's achievements gave me some replay value =/

Extremely easy. Easiest of all the Sonic XBLA games by far. The hardest being collect all 7 chaos emeralds. I got 115 gamerscore in the game in under a hour. Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 definitely had harder achievements especially the timed achievements. While Sonic 3 doesn't have any timed achievements.

Just beating Sonic 3 alone would net you at least 155 gamerscore if you don't go into any of the bonus levels.

Talking It's still a Sonic game.

Although, the achievements were very easy for this one, this game as is Sonic and Sonic 2, is a Sonic game which is great to have.

I do agree, there should have been a few different types of achievements here.

Play without dying, timed zones, beat game as Tails (due to one specific boss would make this a worthy achievement), or if you beat the game as Sonic and as Tails you would unlock Knuckles. He's available for Time Attack, why not just add it for fun.

nice list lol, I too much dislike Barrel o' Deaths

Compared to Sonic 2 and even Sonic 1, these are a friggin' breeze. One play through...that's all it takes even for a rookie

Though the achievements were easy I am glad that none of them are unattainable. Some games have glitched achievements you cant get Warlords. (cough) All and all I loved Sonic 3 before and I do now.

The achievements are easy but is the game easy? If it isn't then try going through it without using saves. It'll be more of a challenge.

Sonic 1 & 2 were challenging to say the least. But this game as well as Sonic & Knuckles was trivial.

Added this to my list as well. Might play it in a couple of weeks or less. Hopefully the achievements aren't too bad.
