  1. Sonic 3:
    - 6 Zones: Angel Island, Hydrocity, Marble Garden, Carnival Night, Ice Cap, and Launch Base
    - Choose between playing as Sonic, Tails, or Sonic and Tails. You can't play as Knuckles.
    - 8 save files for you to save your progress and return to at later dates as you wish
    - Gumball Machine Bonus Stage from Star Posts

    Sonic & Knuckles:
    - 8 Zones: Mushroom Hill, Flying Battery, Sandopolis, Lava Reef, Hidden Palace, Sky Sanctuary, Death Egg, and Doomsday
    - Choose between playing as Sonic or Knuckles. You can't play as Tails.
    - No save files. You must beat the whole game in a single sitting.
    - Slot Machine Bonus Stage or Glowing Spheres Bonus Stage from Star Posts

    These are the main differences. There may be other minor ones in gameplay that you may discover as you play both and compare them.

  1. What Distant Rainbow said IS true but this is a Plot question,
    Sonic 3 happens after Sonic 2 with Robotnik trying to repear the Death Egg.
    Sonic & Knuckles happens right after Sonic 3 with Sonic STILL trying to destroy the Death Egg.

  2. When sonic took the Death Egg down in sonic 2, the death egg crash landed in the waters of Launch Base. When Sonic took the Death Egg down at the Launch Base, it hit the Lava Reef volcano. Look closely during Sonic's boss battle, and you'll see the death egg where it crash landed

  3. As for differences, Sonic and Knuckles has 6 zones with knuckles, 7 with Bad ending sonic, and 8 with good ending "super" sonic(considering super sonic's added Zone, the Doomsday. Sonic 3, good or bad ending, as all characters. And has an instance where super sonic loses all his rings at once during the Big Arm bossfight.
