Sonic: Lost World is an action adventure title and the second in a series of Sonic the Hedgehog titles that were originally exclusive to Nintendo eighth-generation platforms. The game blends 2D and 3D platforming mechanics, building on Sonic Colors.

Players control Sonic the Hedgehog himself through side-scrolling and 3D levels, with emphasis placed on managing his speed between slower and more deliberate movements to faster runs with access to parkour moves used to traverse up walls. Sonic can also gather Wisps, which like in Sonic Colors function as powerups that grant limited time benefits or special attacks. Players can also receive Wisps from other players through the Miiverse, which are more powerful than the regular versions earned ingame.

The game supports two-player coop multiplayer, where the second player controls a vehicle that assists Sonic throughout the levels of Lost Hex. Players can also race each other in competitive multiplayer modes.

Think they're pseudonyms or the Zs are just coincidence?

Good levels and the game has a great soundtrack. But the later levels got really frustrating and the game made me rage quite a bit. :/ SonicLostWorld

Don't get me wrong. This game is good. But something is lacking within. It's a typical Sonic...

I can see why people don't like this game. But I can also see why people DO like this game.

All of the recent footage of this game has got me wanting a WiiU more than ever.
People say either two things in regards to this game.
1] It's like the Adventure era games. It's naff. / It's not the modern controls. I don't like it.
2] This game is excellent and I want it.
The people who say number one are those who haven't even played it. Granted, I haven't played it yet, but at least I can judge it for what it is, not what came before it. Even SEGA themselves say that this is possibly the best Sonic game they have created [alothough they say that about all Sonic games they make] but this time, critics are actually liking it as well. There are numerous previews for this game, and most of them are very positve. The only ones that aren't, well... you can tell they're just shoving the game because they didn't take the time to get to know it and its controls, as that's what those preivews will mainly focus on.
I believe SEGA when they say best Sonic game in years, and you only have to look at the footage to know it most likely will be. Not everyone will agree, as it goes. Oh well, I've had my say, and within the next month I'll hopefully have a WiiU. Or at least the chance to finally play this game. SonicLostWorld
