Kewl! Love how the vehicle transforms like a hover craft..
BUT, the handling is too touch sensitive for the younger kids
And had my 5 year old just wanting to watch others play. We
Are all waiting for Mario Kart 8 !!
Not my favorite game.
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.

SEGA created the perfect formula in Sonic Adventure for the Dreamcast and after the 2nd entry they went and changed it up with heroes. Ever since then Sonic has been doomed to the "lab rat" treatment. With every game they must experiment. They took away the spin dash and added the boost, along with the drift.
They went back to the S.A. formula in 06 but failed to deliver due to a terrible love story full of beastiality and gameplay that was full of glitches and bugs.
Lost World completely changed everything we know about Sonic and yet again took away Sonic's friends/rivals. I didnt make it pass the 1st stage when i realized that this game is uninspiring and lacked a real fun factor. The reviews werent far off when they said this wasnt a good game.
Play this game at your own risk. This is all my opinion (disclaimer to the fanboys).
