The most famous hedgehog in history is back on Wii U in Sonic Lost World, two years after Generations, a less than perfect game that still managed to please a lot of fans of the franchise. What can we expect from this title exclusive to Nintendo's console? No need to wait anymore, Gamersyde tells it all!
As usual, the whole review is only available in French, but we translated our final thoughts.
The latest title of the Sonic saga is definitely a good game. By borrowing its gameplay sequences from games like Sonic Colors, Super Mario Galaxy or even Super Monkey Ball, it manages to mix various ways of doing platforming while still keeping its own identity. And cherry on the cake, it manages to keep boredom at bay by varying the gameplay styles and has a good replayability potential. Finally, the addition of a way to slow down Sonic thanks the the running trigger makes the platforming much more interesting than in the past. As a result we get a title where all gameplay styles are enjoyable and interesting. Despite a rather slow release schedule, the Wii U gets another great title and with the upcoming release of 2 heavy weights of the same genre (Mario and Donkey Kong!), platforming fans have a few more reasons not to look at the upcoming next-gen consoles.
