Lol, sister topic to 360pages' topic.

Personally..... Sonic Advance. And please no discussions about Sonic Advance 2, 3, or Rush, we can probably guess our opinions about those games for their mechanics. This is about Sonic Advance 1, not the Advance series.

This game felt faster than sonic advance and had better platforming in my opinion. But something about sonic advance and it's ideas just make me like it a lot too.
I'd say I like them both the same.

It felt like the game held your hand at certain points with useless enemy placement. Example: Lost Labyrinth Act Whatever. A bunch of Bubbles are floating next to elevator platforms.

Also: Spring placement. In Splash Hill Zone or practically anywhere in the game there are springs that are chained together to essentially play the game for you.
Fans and non-fans alike, show support for Megaman Legends 3!

I'd have to say Ep. 1 if only for Super Sonic alone.

I honestly don't know. They're both some of my favorite games of the series, and Advane 1 was definately the best of the Advance games....I dunno...can I call a draw on this one?

super sonic being playable in every stage immediately makes this better than advance imo.

I really like both games. But here's what I think.

Sonic 4
+Super Sonic in every level
+Classic style special stages
+More difficult final boss
+Better graphics
-Minor physics engine oddities (and by minor I mean doesn't ruin the game)
-Too easy to earn extra lives (wouldn't be a problem if it didn't save them.)
-No multi-player or co-op (advance at least has vs mode)

Advance 1
+More playable characters
+Better Music
+More level variety
+Gameplay feels closer to that of a classic Sonic game.
-Super Sonic is only in the last level
-Errr, I can't think of a good flaw. Rail sliding feels kind of odd?

It's kind of hard for me to say one over the other, but if I had to pick, I'd say advance 1 is better.
Not changing this signature until a new F-Zero is announced. *started 6/18/10*
F-Zero > Mario Kart. If you disagree, it's because you're bad at F-Zero.

Advance 1. Sonic 4 is cool, but I have a feeling that if the series were to keep going on the Genesis, the next game would be much like Advance 1.
Playing now: Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness - GRINDAN ADVENTURE
Super Street Fighter IV - sucking as always
