    This game is even better on handheld than on console. Sonic looks amazing.

    Considering how disappointed we were with Generations, Lost World is the Sonic game 3DS deserved. The wealth of tricky environments, hidden items and even four-person races for ambitious players make it a worthwhile purchase, even at $39.99.

    Despite the big problems with the control system, the intriguing level design of Sonic Lost World makes it an excellent platform.

    Again, it’s a shame, because there’s good here, but it’s often buried beneath a quagmire of frustration...So, yes, this is a better game than its more powerful counterpart, but Lost World on the 3DS, despite a few excellent asides, remains a largely average, occasionally frustrating outing for Sonic. Again.

    What could be a fluid experience and well organized in terms of design, gives place to a number of gaps and inconsistencies that prevent the game to achieve the desired success.

    In trying to incorporate 3D environments and ideas from the Wii U title, Dimps has rather tied Sonic's red boots together, causing him to often stumble and fall.

    Sega obviously tried to emulate aspects of Super Mario Galaxy or other 3D Mario games to make this leap in the Sonic series, but Sonic: Lost World suffers with each “feature” they have added to the Sonic’s successful formula: running and jumping.

Mein einziger Kritikpunkt ist, dass manche Sequenzen etwas unpassend eingefügt wurden aber sonst find ichs sehr gut! Expand

    I don't really understand the hate on people have for this game. Some of the levels are pretty **** but there are quite a few good ones tooI don't really understand the hate on people have for this game. Some of the levels are pretty **** but there are quite a few good ones too and the game is decently long despite the last world being, more or less, taken out. All I ever hear people complain about is the damn snowball level and how it isn't platforming and its holding the game hostage or w/e, and admittedly that level really pissed me off, but it was over pretty fast. I don't get why a game like Wind Waker HD can get a 90. If people think this game is bad, that game is really bad! Literally the whole game is holding the game hostage, and the dungeons aren't even fun when you do get to em. I still haven't beaten the Wii U version of Lost World, but that one is much better despite forcing you to use the stupid tablet as a controller. Expand

    Well, like most games I have reviewed, I am a few years late. I decided not to trust the reviews, for they may not truely represent the game.Well, like most games I have reviewed, I am a few years late. I decided not to trust the reviews, for they may not truely represent the game. However, this game is rubbish. Only a handful of time do I feel like I wasted my money on a 3DS game. Read the negative reviews below and you shall see some of the salient problems. Noteably, the boring levels. Absolutely boring with no place in a game where the character is meant to be fast (really, pushing apples and then being punished by falling down a well of water. Really, really!?!?1). Don't waste you money, unless it is under 10 dollars. I bought it on the eshop and am quite pissed. Stay away and enjoy something else! Expand
