This isn't much of a review, more of what the game is like and what I thought about it.

Just finished Sonic: Lost World, My thoughts? It's... Ok.
The levels and graphics look amazing, the design on the levels with stuff like candy and terrain look stunning. The Music is great (there's one level with an AMAZING track to it, loved it), the controls work fine, no idea what reviewers were complaining about, the only time they failed is when I kept running up a wall I didn't want to run up, although it's my fault for holding the button in.

BUT... The levels themselves... meh, the 2D levels are fun, kinda almost exactly like colours just with gravity stuff in it. The 3D levels tho, they feel the same in every world, just different things stuck in different places. There wasn't much variety in the 3D levels as I hoped, there were only about 2-3 3d levels I enjoyed playing, the rest felt the same as the last. Although they are quite hard, a simple mistake and you're dead, a few mistakes and it's game over since there's not many lifes in this game. Definitely not as generous as Mario games.

The worst part about this game is the bosses... For crying out loud they are some of the easiest bosses in gaming history, each only only lasted about 5-10 seconds long, and if it didn't it was because you had to wait a while before you could hit them.

The story is pretty much how recent Sonic games story has gone, not too detailed but enough to keep you curious.

So... ya, I'm probably just going to sell this game tomorrow, there's no replay ability, sure there are different paths in the levels but it doesn't change much, just different paths, If you're thinking of buying this game, the 2D parts are a lot like Sonic Colours 2D parts, but the 3D parts let the game down for me a little.

SPOILER ALERT for those who don't want to be spoiled. Hense why i've placed it in the spoiler part.

The easy bosses is my only problem with the game. Apart from that it is very fun.

Easy bosses- sign me up!  I suck at beating bosses.  Was thinking about getting Wii U Party or this.... Leaning towards this.

$65... honetly it depends on if you like Sonic games, If you've never played one then it's risky. But hey! You can always sell it again.

I don't think it's horrible, but not amazing. I'll just list off some stuff I didn't like, since there's still more good than bad.

 

- Momentum is screwy, jumping kills your momentum. But I've gotten used to it.

 

- There's been some times (not too much to say it's game ruining), but running is also the button to run up walls. So sometimes you might run up a wall by accident while running.

 

- Bosses are way too easy, some can even be beaten in seconds.

 

That's about it really, I'm still enjoying the game. It can actually can difficult in some spots, and the cutscenes are fun. Getting S ranks can be a challenge, they require you to sniff out the best short cuts. Overall, I think it's a good game. Not as good as Generations (haven't played the Wii version of Colors so I can't compare to that)., but it's not mediocre like the reviews are claiming.

I wonder if I should get this on my 3ds b/c it's cheaper..... or wait for the price to come down and get it on the Wii U?  Or wait for it to get below $30 on the 3ds......

Wii U version looks amazing, sounds amazing, but is only slightly above-average. Doesn't matter to me, since I'm such a huge Sonic fan that I'm okay with my purchase. The controls are strange, but I'm getting the hang of it. The 3DS version so far has the better controls I think. The levels are more open in the 3DS version, and not as linear. The bosses are disappointing though. Overall, I'd give it a 7.2 out of 10. Not as good as Colours or Generations, but still pretty good. The next game to use this gameplay style will be better, just as Colours was with the Boost gameplay.
