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.
@KORNdog: ..but they had been testing the concept with players, can't argue with a focus group, this is science you'no.. :/ (0 minute ago)
I'll miss Visceral but I won't miss a title that was probably in an awful state. No reason to assume we're being robbed of anything quality. (1 minute ago)
They probably missed loads of milestones for it to have shuttered the studio. Even if they're "abandoning" single player, which sounds like a hot-take to me. (2 minutes ago)
next bioware game also being a destiny-type game, it's starting to look like EA is abandoning the traditional single-player genre (13 minutes ago)
make "an experience that players will want to come back to and enjoy for a long time to come".. which i'm just guessing is more like Destiny, Division. (19 minutes ago)
Even hired amy hennig too, guess we won't see the fruits of that labour now. (21 minutes ago)
That was a game i was looking forward to seeing more from. A big-budget star wars adventure game. Ofc it could be the game just didn't work, but from that article it sounds more like they wanted to (21 minutes ago)
