For me it was sonic unleashed I mean I really enjoyed the game but it just got so darn hard like in eggmanland I must have died 20 or 30 times

Start of eggamanland 99 lives

End of eggmanland 50 or so lives

So what do you think was the hardest sonic game ? :)

Wii version was considerably easier than the PS360 version.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Game Gear is often labeled as the hardest Sonic game, but I've never played it.

The hardest Sonic game I played was Sonic and Knuckles. If it weren't for the save feature in the Mega Collection Plus, I wouldn't have even gotten to the Flying Battery Zone because of that dang second boss; and the game just progressively gets harder.

Sonic Unleashed really isn't that bad in terms of difficulty. The day stages are easy, and the night stages were a bit harder, but more... frustrating. Not difficult, but frustrating due to the fact that you have a bunch of monsters coming out along with witches that make even more monsters to come your way and... well... it just gets really frustrating.

Sonic 2 for Game Gear, but that's because of its low resolution and screen refresh rate. It was a scaled-down Master System game. That meant that scaled down and put on a low refresh rate screen made the game more difficult. You couldn't see pits or traps ahead of time, sometimes projectiles were hard to see, etc. Also, worst of all, it makes you fight the bosses with ZERO RINGS. You can't get hit at all. That's hard enough on the Master System version, but near impossible on the Game Gear version as you can never see attacks coming. The Master System was awesome and reasonably challenging. The Game Gear version was cheap and frustrating.

Silly noobs who think Unleashed was hard. I'm 29 years old. You don't know what hard is! You kids today with our auto saves and regenerating health. Bah! Go play something REALLY hard like the NES Ninja Gaiden, Battletoads, Castlevania (the first NES game), or Ghosts N' Gobblins. In my day we didn't have google to look up cheat codes and walkthroughs, we had to pay 0.99 a minute to go on the Nintendo Power hotline. If you wanted to beat a game you either had to write down ridiculously hard codes or play for 8 hours straight because you turned that machine off, you started from zero!

I had to walk 10 miles...in the snow...up a hill..both ways...with no shoes..so I could get Super Mario Bros. 3. I had to kill a grizzly bear with my wired NES controller.

Where was I? Oh yeah, hard Sonic game.

Well the general consensus is Sonic 2 on the Game Gear is the hardest, non broken Sonic game. The Master System version is slightly easier with a wider screen (go download it on the VC for 500pts if you dare). There's no special stages, the emeralds are hidden throughout the levels. First of all you probably won't get past the first boss. Robotnick saves you from a bath in lava just to throw you to a boss you can't attack. You have to dodge the canonballs falling for so long before you continue on.

Then you have to try to fly hangliders which takes looking at instructions to figure out.

Then you manuver a slow moving bubble in a water stage around super fast spears and foes.

And Green Hills act 3 which is a series of timed springboard jumps and tons of spikes.

And Scrambled Egg zone...ha ha ha ha ha

All the boss robots you fight with zero rings including the final boss.

And let me say that when I got to Robotnick at the end I had 10 lives and 3 continues and used them ALL and still didn't beat him.

Sonic 3 was the first game on my Genesis that I could save. If you died in anything else, you started ALL over. Crazy kids an your flashy graphics and your save files and your hard drives and wireless controllers and your difficulty settings. You couldn't set BattleToads or Contra on easy or anything....*tear*

Sonic Unleashed (360), that will be the only sonic game (besides 06) that I'll never beat 100%. Why is it hard? Every time you die in a werehog stage, your score resets, and these levels drag on for 6+ minutes MINIMUM. And yes I have Sonic 2 on GG, but I actually got to the last zone :P but than I died and I am too lazy to do it again.

Hardest Sonic 2 on Game Gear definety. I mean the first boss explains everything and well Aqua Lake is rock hard. Getting to the boss in Green Hills was an effort in itself. Then I'd say Advance 2 is after it because getting the Special Rings is hard and Sky Canyon is evil espically the boss.

Most frustrating Secret of the Rings: It is on rails and that Captain Bemoth boss drove me insane and took me 10 minutes to do. Also the Egg quest in Dino Jungle the less said the better.

Carnival Night isn't that bad. I think on the whole, the hardest part of Sandopolis is harder than the hardest part of Carnival Night.

I heard that so many people were stuck on the Carnival Night barrel that the Sega hotline when you called it literally said "Welcome to the Sega hotline, to get past the barrel in Carnival night Zone act 2...."

Oh it took me MONTHS to figure out how to pass that dang barrel!:x

But no, Sonic 3's barrel was nothing compared to the parts of the Sonic games where you had exactly 0 rings. This made the end bosses in Sonic 2 (Genesis) extremely hard, and in Sonic 2 GG it made the very first boss a pain in the azz to beat.:x 

On a similiar note I should've never played sonic Spinball.-_-

The first Sonic on Genesis was hard on me. The only level that prevent me from moving on was Labyrith Zone. That water level became a nightmare. ...And it still is.

Sonic 2, I got through just fine until Silver Sonic then Robotnik after. Sonic 3 got the through the zones with ease, not much trouble with the last battle. Sonic and Knuckles got a problem with Sandopolis Act 2 inside the pyramid and the last battle of both Mecha Sonic and Robotnik.

I haven't been able to play Sonic and Sonic 2 or any other games on the Gamegear all the way. I don't remember really, but I think I had played them when I was little. It either got lost or broke. But, yeah. I'd say the Gamegear ones are a challenge.

My hardest are:

Sonic 1 thanks to Labyrinth Zone act 3, I'd do just fine until the boss, then I'd die over and over and over. I finally beat the game with the level select cheat, then went back to it a year later and beat it just fine.
Sonic 2: First off, I had the controller with the switches labeled auto, turbo, and off. And I thought off meant button OFF, so I used turbo forever. After I fixed that, I kept dying in Oil Ocean, then Metropolis Zone (Especially Act 2 towards the end, the lousy tricky spin dash challenge), then Flying Fortress, and then the super final boss that I finally beat by only attacking him when it was 95% safe (It's never 100% safe thanks to Genesis glitches).
Sonic 3 wasn't too bad, but Sonic & Knuckles had Sandopolis, which would murder me a lot thanks to the puzzles being so hard, then Lava Reef, which wasn't quite so bad but still horrendous, then Death (Egg) Zone and its really tough bosses. Still, I love that game. :D

I cheated on Mega Collection Plus to beat it, I saved about once a minute.

The hardest polished game: tie between Sonic 2 Gamegear (which I loathed) and Sonic CD (loved)

Hardest game due to technical bugs and glitches galore: Sonic 06.

I used to have trouble with the Biolizard, but once you get down the routine for beating him, he only takes a couple of tries. The Egg Emporer however... hahaha..... let's just say that I STILL haven't beaten that with Team Chaotix, and I've owned Sonic Heroes for about six or seven years....

For Team Dark it's easy, you can cheat to fill your special attack meter, then use Chaos Inferno to freeze time and leave Egg Emperor open to massive damage. Team Sonic can use their special attack, then take their super projectile side attack for massive damage. Team Rose is the easiest, ten second of super speed and invincibility, plus a level-up into the bargain. Team Chaotix has nothing to their advantage except lives, using their special attack against one of the robot army bosses can net you maximum rings (999) and lives (99) easily.

You played the Gamecube version, I played it as well but not for very long. I own the PS2 version, and 100% completion would take years of trial and error.
