IGN scores Sonic Lost World a 5.8

Gamespot scores it a 5.0

Well ain't that just a toe to the wooden table?

the trailers didn't get me all too axcited, but nice reviews could have convince me to buy it until mario 3d world comes out.. too bad

It's a Sonic game, what did anyone expect.

Even Generations, which was lauded as the best Sonic game since the 16 bit era is Mediocre at best.

If it weren't for the Sonic and All-Stars Racing games (Which are amazing, since they aren't developed by Sega), the next thing that needs to be put into Sonic is a bullet.

Game never looked good to me. I'm not surprised.

Disappointing score..but Im still getting it ..& still not getting cat mario 3d land (yea, I saw your comment wiifan001 in System Wars) :P It is disappointing to see Nintendo exclusives have either flop even with good scores.

@ANIMEguy10034: By looking at the review outlets, its seems it is getting mixed reviews, with some outlets like GameSpot giving the game lower scores, while outlets like Famitsu giving it higher scores.

The scores are not what I expected.

It got a pretty good review from Gamespot, we'll have to wait until a few others start reviewing it. It still looks fun IMO, just seems like there are some small errors that make the game frustrurating at times. I guess we'll have to see though.

lol

I was going to see how the reviews were going to take this game help decide I was getting this Soinc game.

After the release of Pikmin 3, with the delays of a couple games and others being multiplats, and then this didn't pan out well, the only game that helped me sold on a Wii U til the end of the year is Cat Mario, and just maybe Wonderful 101.

The vastly superior Wii lineup in 2007 had at least a decent Sonic game that being Secret Rings

Not surprised at all. Sega does not know how to make a 3D Sonic game. Sonic has not been good since the Genesis.

Can't wait to get my copy. Day one for me :D

#15 Posted by Pierst179 (10663 posts) -

Oh boy!

That's some terrible news. I was looking forward to it.

Now, I may buy Assassin's Creed IV instead. Unless that game also turns out to not be so good.

It's just Sonic.

#17 Edited by spike6958 (4640 posts) -

Eh, that's disappointing. I was going to pre-order because it looked interesting from the videos but didn't because I was worried it might flop like this. May still pick it up when it's super cheap though.

It sad, as Tails FINALLY got to have a time to shine in the game, and it was a nice welcome. Figures they mess it up, and likely will try to point the blame at someone other then themselves.

Sadly a bad Sonic game is not new news...I was really hoping they broke out of that, but seems they still be bring out games that could have used more time.

Wow I'm surprised by those low scores after Famitsu gave it 36/40. Still kinda want to get this; I'm going to be keeping my eyes on the other reviews that come out.

I may just end up buying cat mario with the $$ that I was planning to get Deus Ex, since Square Enix try to screw over Wii U owners by charging Wii U version more than competitors..Im just gonna avoid it completely. :P

Yeah, I can say that I'm not surprised. I can tell from the trailers that the game was gonna have serious problems though I hoped they tried fixing them before the game got released...

Lol. It amazes me how people always seem to think the next Sonic is going to be good, when the last 10 or so sucked.

Well, Sonic Colors was pretty good!

Sonic Colors was good and this was looking even better by copying the SMG formula.

It would have been a home run for Wii U to have a AAA Sonic and Mario game in the same year. Let Nintendo EAD make a 3d Sonic game please!

im still buying...gamespot always hates on nintendo.

Exactly. Lost World was showing a lot of promise.

I don't think I've really played a good console sonic game. The only truly great games in the series I've played was Sonic Rush series and Sonic Advance 3. I'm hesitant to give Sonic Generations a try.

#28 Edited by hotdiddykong (2047 posts) -

Im still giving it a try especially since the reviewers just keep blabbing about Sonic's speed and how he rips off Mario instead of the actual game

Something internal at Sega keeps Sonic from truly shining in a 3d world. Sonic probably never will fully flow as well as it did in 2d.

Youtube has plenty of gameplay videos, game looks solid IMO. I'll be getting this later and judge it myself.
