    It’s not fast enough for a Sonic game and imprecise controls can lead to frustration but for the most part Lost World emanates the raw, simple platforming fun rarely seen on PCs. [01/2016, p.70]

    If you judge it as a sonic game it’s disappointing but if you judge it for a good platformer it’s not a bad game by any means but there’s better and worse sonic games out there. That said it rarely delivers the speed you crave and as a sonic fan I was disappointed about this.

    One of the best Sonic games lately, but isn't even close to the best blue hedgehog's games.

    There are good ideas in Sonic Lost World, and even fleeting moments of brilliance – the wide-open assault course of Desert Ruins Zone 1 stands out as a particular highlight. But for every bit that works brilliantly and provides the thrilling action we want from Sonic, there’s a weak boss encounter or an awkward stop-start stage that dents your enthusiasm.

    Sloppy controls make for an infuriating platformer. If you want a modern Sonic game, get Generations instead.

    Pros
    +Level design and art design looks like Super Mario Galaxy/Super Mario 3D World, very appealing
    +Gameplay style is similar to Generations where part of the game is 2D Sonic style and the other part is 3D Sonic style
    +A storyline with CG cutscenes and fully voiced characters
    +Item usage which allows you to get rings, extra lives or shields
    +Wisps allow you to use special abilities which alter the gameplay
    +Nightmare DLC available with the game
    +Contains all content from the WiiU version (minus the Nintendo DLCs)
    +60 FPS and higher resolution support compared to the 3DS and WiiU versions

    Cons
    -Game is short
    -Game can be tedious in difficulty at times when it comes to some level designs
    -Bosses are too easy and battles are too short
    -Some parts of the game put you in situations where it would have been better if explained via a tutorial otherwise it takes a few times to figure out a part where you would get stuck
    -3DS version wisps are missing
    -Lacks the Zelda and Yoshi DLCs that the WiiU version had
    -Multiplayer mode from the WiiU version is not included in this version
    -Although the game recommends a controller , the map menu requires you to use the mouse as there are no buttons to select the icons (due to the fact that the game was on the WiiU and the gamepad touchscreen was its main control for the map screen
    -The L3 stick is used to open up the item menu, which can in some cases open up while you are moving and accidentally clicking on it, which stops Sonic in movement

    I finally got the chance to play "Sonic Lost World" which was a Wii U exclusive for over two years. It's a solid game, but I kind of wish itI finally got the chance to play "Sonic Lost World" which was a Wii U exclusive for over two years. It's a solid game, but I kind of wish it had more original level themes and the music could be slightly better. My computer isn't that fast, but the game runs at a decent enough speed for me. Also, this game is two years old and SEGA still hasn't fixed a bug where Super Sonic has two mouths. An update would be nice, SEGA... While you're it, please make different language options for cutscenes, I can't stand Roger Craig Smith's voice... but right now, Sonic Lost World is still fun. Expand

    Worst PC Game ever, even the best PCs can´t run it on 60 FPS because the Game is trash.
