  1. Yeah, as if anyone would voluntarily play that game again. I got it on Wii U for free, thanks to a free download code, and even then I have never touched it again after playing it once and seeing how horrible it was.

        1. That was a great analogy. I busted out laughing on that one, spit all over my screen. Lol.

          1. Who are you kidding? It’s more than buggy, it’s an incomplete disaster that looks worse than a crappy looking PS2 game and worse, the dumbass “obvious” dialog just won’t shut the fuck up for 2 seconds.

          2. It was playable, but not very enjoyable because they messed up the most basic of gameplay elements in the game. The three main means of attacking enemies in Sonic games have always been jumping on enemies, using your homing attack or using your spin dash, and I can say that at least the first two methods were incredibly buggy in the game and didn’t work as intended. More often then not, they would lead to you getting hit, even when performed correctly. This pretty much lead to frustration within the very first minutes of gameplay already. I didn’t even bother playing the game again after getting somewhere past the first boss. The game definitely had more than just “a few rough edges”.

    1. I paid full price.
      AND downloaded it.
      So yeah. My dumb ass got handed to me.
      I will say, I love the Zelda DLC. I wonder if Steam will get that.
      Good luck Sega.

      1. I also paid full price, but bought the hardcopy.

        Both Zelda and Yoshi DLCs were indeed great. I also liked the game overall, but Sonic Colors is still superior, in my opinion.

      2. I preordered the game for the Deadly Six bonus content… Wasn’t worth it, IMO.

        Going back to play the game again, though, it isn’t as bad as I remember it to be. When I was first playing it, I was hating on the game a lot. I think it had some patches and became relatively okay.

    2. Lost World was alright. I actually liked its shift in focus onto platforming over speed and wish the new direction had been better executed. I think it all depends on what you want from a Sonic game.

  2. I have the game, and it’s pretty OK for a Sonic game, I loved the controls but I hated how gimmicky are the wisps in this game, I missed the boost mechanic and I have mixed feelings about the story.

  3. I always thought the deal between Nintendo and Sega established that Lost World would be a Wii U lifetime exclusive. Also, unless I’m wrong, Nintendo paid for the title development, or something along those lines.

    If so, it is likely that Nintendo will get a percentage of the Steam sales revenue. If not… This is Nintendo being backstabbed again.

    1. probably no backstabbing unless they backed out of the agreement… it would be a contract of sorts, something we don’t have all the details of.

  4. Anyone on the fence about it, I will tell you to pass. The parkour system will kill you more times than help you, the bosses are pathetically easy, the level design is some of the worst, and the plot is atrocious.

        1. I miss playing Shadow the Hedgehog. I loved the fact the spin off wasn’t a carbon copy of every other Sonic game and is the only spin off from Sonic I would have followed if it had became a subfranchise of Sonic.

            1. Because of how much Shadow the Hedgehog is apparently hated, me loving that game is a guilty pleasure these days. Of course, the fact I’m a big video game soundtrack buff might be my main reason for loving those games because the soundtrack was undeniably awesome in my opinion.

              1. I totally get you. Say what you will about Sonic 06, I’ve always thought that game had a great soundtrack. The tracks for Crisis City and Kingdom Valley are phenomenal.

                1. Never played Sonic ’06 but if the music is great, I might have to look up the soundtrack later if I don’t forget or get sidetracked by games, television shows, WWE, or movies.

  5. I’m probably the only one who prefers this game over Colors. I love the spindash more than the boost, and the parkour is usually optional, so whether you like it or not, it shouldn’t overly hinder gameplay. I do think the bosses stink and the plot is cheesy, but this game gets way too much hate in my opinion. But hey, to each their own.

    1. Fuck Xbox and PS4 will get its own Sonic game eventually that’ll outshine this one. Let Steam have this game, wait for PS4 to get a new game and FUCK XBOX TO HELL.

      1. >>>At least we will always agree on the Xbot problem, I can’t stand them any longer>>>

        1. Dude, any common sense person would know Xbox is a POS that can’t even stay stable for 2 second after turning it on and fuck its ripoff $60 FREE ONLINE PLAY.

  6. This game… I have a love/hate relationship with it. It’s really fun on some levels like the first Windy Hill act, but it gets really annoying later on. Most of your deaths in this game will probably be trying to control Sonic rather than actually getting killed by enemies. Overall, I hate more levels than I like in this game. The snowball level, the rail levels, the sky level, and Tropical Coast have made me rage furiously. I got it digitally when I played it, but if I had a physical copy, I would’ve traded it in. But I ended up dealing with it and just beat it. It’s really short, the bosses suck, the controls are annoying, and I didn’t feel satisfied at all after beating it. Was not worth all that I had to put up with. The final boss is easier than most of the levels. No way I’m buying this game again. If the next Sonic game isn’t Adventure 3 or at least like Colors/Generations, I don’t even care.

    1. Sonic Adventures is hands down my favorite Sonic game. I need my Chao fix bad… Ugh, I loved those cute little things… But in general it was just so much fun.

      I don’t know about you, but my favorite games are the ones that really immerse you into their world. I felt like the first Sonic Adventure did that really well, it was… How do I put this… A real adventure… >.<

      I just had an idea, Sega should make a mobile Chao raising game… Why, why haven't they done this already?!
