I was waiting at my mailbox and when this game came in the mail I knew it would be a fine game. The game was amazing in the first, second, and third worlds and the wisps were fresh, but the controls were buggy. The buggiest thing in the game I saw was the deaths. In Zone 5-4 the level were you fight Zor for the second time when I jumped on the moving tiki stone platforms Sonic would be perfectly fine but I still died. The Eagle Wisp didn't match my liking either. When I would tilt the gamepad Sonic would go downwards or wouldn't get other Eagle capsules. Sonic Lost World has a TON of space for improvement and that's why I am giving it three and a half stars or a 7.2. Try it for yourself and buy it.
I was someone who had written off Sonic games as just plain awful thanks to some bad experiences with previous platforming games starring the blue blur. Lost World surprised me by being a truly great platformer that escapes many of the pitfalls the series has previously fallen into.
It looks gorgeous and is just a heck of a lot of fun to play. Level design is excellent and it all controls well. It may not have the same sense of speed that previous Sonic titles have, but that doesn't stop this from being a great game. A few cheap hits will be thrown out by the game every now and then, and the cooperative and competitive multiplayer is atrocious, but for the most part this is an excellent platformer.
So if you're a Sonic fan I don't see why you wouldn't like this, unless all of the change is just a turn-off for you. If you're like me and previously hated Sonic, then this should give you a reason to give the character and his games another chance. I know I will.
