  • Summary: Sonic games over the years have tended to be hit or miss, at least when it comes to the console games.  The portable games however have tended to remain pretty good since the Sonic Advance series, with one or two games not doing quite as well, but still having a decent showing.

  • Excerpt: Sonic the Hedgehog returns to the world of gaming with his latest instalment on the Nintendo 3DS called Sonic Lost World. This game is a 3D platformer which requires our blue hero to perform a variety of speedy and colourful moves with a touch of Parkour thrown into the mix, not to mention cool wall...

Sonic: Lost World

  • Conclusion: Sonic: Lost World is yet another disappointment considering the premise and games it was pulling ideas from. Like clockwork, this Sonic game fails to focus on the most important aspect of platforming: tight controls.

Sonic Lost World 3DS Review: Painfully Fun

TechnologyTell
1 November 2013
  • Excerpt: We’ve reached a point in time where each Sonic the Hedgehog installment is approached with caution, rather than celebrated. Fans have been burned before, with spin-offs, variations, and cash-grabs that have left the series with a dubious legacy.

Sonic Lost World Review: Sonic applies the brakes

GameZone
25 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Unlike Mario games, which are almost always gold, the Sonic games have their highs and lows. From the terrible Sonic 06 , to the much better Colors and then the fantastic Generations , it seemed like Sonic games were finally starting to get better.

  • Excerpt: In case you haven't read VideoGamer.com's take on the Wii U Version yet , know that Sonic fares a little better on the 3DS version of Lost World. There's a sense that the team who made it had a slightly better clue about how to design the levels around him, although it’s still not fantastic,...

Sonic Lost World 3DS Review

Modojo
21 October 2013
  • Conclusion: 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. Look for it October 29. Review copy provided by Sega.
  • Pros: Sonic Lost World comes with familiar staples from the franchise, including mechanical enemies, thousands of gold rings to collect and traditional Sonic maneuvers like the Homing Attack and Spin Dash. That said, it doesn't necessarily play like older Sonic games. Sega put a heavy emphasis on explo...
  • Cons: Gamers interested in the story will have to put up with horribly pixelated cut scenes. On top of that, it's sometimes difficult identifying what lies ahead in both the 2D and 3D stages, which leads to some unfair deaths. We also give the thumbs down to RC vehicles, which give players a cheap adva...

20 October 2013
  • Summary: While it's still popular to suggest Sonic the Hedgehog hasn't had a decent game in decades, this generation alone has at least shown significant improvements. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 was an enjoyable, if controversial game, while Sonic Generations remains a genuinely great experience that finally...

Sonic Lost World 3DS Review

  • Summary: SEGA and Dimps have done an exceptional job in recapturing what makes a Sonic game work. The fact that they’ve done this, while creating that game for a handheld system, makes Lost World all the more impressive.
