  • Conclusion: Sonic has been on a bit of an awkward slope lately. In the last console generation we saw a slew of bad Sonic games with werehogs and sloppy camera controls paving the way. However, in the last three years he's managed to somewhat redeem himself with Sonic Generations and Colors. While they may not have been amazing games, they certainly weren't bad, which is more than I can say for Sonic Heroes.

Sonic Lost World (Wii U) Review

Vooks
14 November 2013
  • Excerpt: There’s no hiding, no denying it – Sonic Lost World draws inspiration from Super Mario Galaxy. It looks like it, feels like it for most of the game and the levels all draw upon the planetoids theme we loved from the Galaxy titles. So how does Sonic slot into the equation? He’s not Mario. He’s nimble, quick and a blur and it’s a friction that never feels quite right. Sonic Lost World tries something new with the story this time around.

Sonic: Lost World (WiiU) - Review

VGChartz
8 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Coming in to 2013, Sonic the Hedgehog was on the rise. With the successful and enjoyable releases of Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations , it had become okay to have faith in the blue blur after years of catastrophic failure. So when Sonic: Lost World was announced, there was more joy and hope in the pre-release build-up than for any Sonic game in the last seven years.

Lost And Damned

  • Conclusion: Concept: Inject the planet-hopping dynamic of Super Mario Galaxy into another one of Sonic’s 2D/3D hybrid titles Graphics: The colorful stages sometimes whiz by too quickly to discern what’s happening. The new boss designs are generic and forgettable Sound: The orchestrated tracks evoke Mario Galaxy in the best ways.

  • Conclusion: The attractive landscapes and engaging ideas behind Sonic Lost World are no match for the demolition of morale suffered under unreliable control and inconsistent quality. Lost World is undoubtedly the most realized and best playing modern-era Sonic game, but Sonic still has ways to go before he's in a game one might actually have the best time playing.

  • Summary: I vividly remember finally nabbing that final star in Mario Galaxy 2 . It had taken weeks of planning the perfect route, and timing each and every button press to guide Mario across that agonising collection of spinning platforms and deathly gravity traps. In a way, it was an oddly torturous experience, but--for that feeling of elation upon reaching the glorious golden star--an entirely worthy one. Sonic Lost World so desperately wants to capture that feeling.
  • Pros: 2D sections are nostalgic fun
  • Cons: Wildly derivative of Mario Galaxy, Painfully difficult levels as part of the main story arc, Way too much "dude bro" in the cutscenes, Often inaccurate handling makes it all the more tricky

OXCGN’s Sonic Lost World Review (Wii U)

OXCGN
8 November 2013
  • Conclusion: + Visually Fantastic, great platformer for the Wii U + You JUST play as Sonic, and none of his terrible friends + Plenty of secret and unlockables - Cheap Deaths Aplenty - Wisp abilities are tacked on and unnecessary - Boss fights are too easy and forgettable - No Crush 40 or even Jun Senoue?
