    Sonic Lost World is a great platform game. SEGA did a great job creating a brilliant level design and mashing up the best elements from Colors and Generations. This is a solid Wii U exclusive which, along with Rayman Legends, can easily sell the Nintendo console to platformers lovers.

    Even though the hedgehog’s deceleration is a resounding success, that precision in gameplay is hindered by a temperamental homing attack and subsequent cheap deaths. That aside, though, Sonic Lost World is unquestionably a return to form and a reason to care again – thankfully without the rose-tinted specs.

    Sonic Lost World is the ideal title for those seeking an immediate and funny platform meanwhile waiting for a new Mario.

    Sonic: Lost world introduces a few very strong new elements, but clings to old formulas that can’t be combined with the new 3D-style. That makes Sonic: Lost World great from time to time, but an awkward failure at others.

    Lost World could have been a great Sonic game, but agitating cutscenes, an overly complicated control scheme and a really unclear general direction puts a stop to that. I have a hard time imagining this will satisfy anyone to a full extent.

    It's more clear than ever that Sega doesn't know where to go with Sonic. The game tries to do a lot of things and end up failing at most of them. Those of you who want a great platformer for the Wii U should just pick up Rayman Legends or wait for Super Mario 3D World.

    If you love him as I once did, you’ll agree that it’s time to take Sonic out back and put him out of everyone’s misery.

This is the 3.D. experience that is required in order for Sonic to feel as he did back in the days of Genesis/Mega Drive. Brilliant soundtrack and voice acting make Sonic Lost World feel how Sonic should be. Remember the attitude and cheesiness that Sonic used to have? It's back, and it has been done very well. Expand

    Non capisco tutte le lamentele della gente, a me Sonic Lost World per Wii U è piaciuto molto.
    Sia chiaro, il gameplay boost mi piace comunque però dopo un po' inizia ad essere tediante.
    Spero che il prossimo gioco della serie principale sia un mix di questo gameplay e quello di Adventure.

    Sonic Lost World is a game that was meant to change the gameplay of sonic for the better. The game replaces the boost with an infiniteSonic Lost World is a game that was meant to change the gameplay of sonic for the better. The game replaces the boost with an infinite spindash which is not as fast but still pretty exhilarating. The gameplay is some of the best the franchise has ever seen. Sonic also has parkour, which means he can run alongside walls. This game also lets you control your speed. It has three types. Slow, medium and fast. Slow is when you use the analog stick, sonic will do an uncomfortable jog. In medium you hold down the run button(you heard me right, a run button) to run slowly. Fast is your spindash. I think this was done to make platforming easier. However, the level design does not compliment these ideas. Most levels are
    strictly based on platforming and do not let you take advantage of the spindash and parkour. When it does let you take advantage, it is alot of fun. The story is nothing worth mentioning. However,Sonic lost world even with its flaws is a pretty solid platformer. It has beautiful graphics and outstanding music. However, I only recomend it to you if you are a sonic fan.If only this game had good level design, it would have been amazing.

    Very bland level design, parkour is a cool idea but poor execution, and the deadly six are some of the most one dimensional and boringVery bland level design, parkour is a cool idea but poor execution, and the deadly six are some of the most one dimensional and boring villains in video game history in my opinion. Its a decent game at best but a huge step backwards from Sonic Generations. Expand
