I don't know why Nintendo causes so much hate, their games are fun to play and original, with colors, with depth and accessibility...give me Skyward Sword over any Gears of War or God of War anyday.
LOL, Sure they can, But who won last gen in sales? Oh wait it was the WII, Yes it was, Hardware specs and graphics dont sell the consoles, Games, Software Sell the consoles, Especially when it's Games like Mario kart 8, Smash Bros, X,Zelda And Many More! You just wait my friend.
That's why you can put an external device on to it. And It's Not Crap. Hardware specs Doesnt mean anything, As long as you have games like Zelda,Mario, Mario Kart,Smash Bros And games like X in full HD, Thats What we care about, not some stupid nerd people that care how much power the console is and who's console is better. Games Sell Consoles, Remember That.
People weren't saying that when Gamecube was out -__- Wii u is a fine console just not enough support, and yeah disk space is an issue but the console isn't that expensive, the extra money you saved you can buy an external hard drive, don't be a bunch of whiney babies about it and bash the console. Don't like it? just don't buy it. Sonic lost worlds looks fun and different. I like it i'm getting it. Shiiett son.
well.. this game ought to be good.. in bizarro world.. much like most if not all sonic games since the original dreamcast sonic adventure game this will fail big time.. it just can't seem to penetrate the thick skulls of the retards at sonic team that putting Sonic in full 3D is just as hazardous as pulling a fish out of the water and expecting it to live for very long.. sonic only woks when he's in a 2D or 2.5D game.. like the good parts in sonic generations.. and putting sonic on the failure of a system like the wii u is the same as if going to a building that's on fire and throwing more gasoline on it ... it will only make it burn faster.... the wii u being the burning building and sonic being the gasoline of course.... much like other sonic s of late. fans will say" oh look, a good sonic game ..see sonic can be in good games after all!"... and then after they actually play it ..they all pretend the game never happened and hope for a good sonic game that will never come.. face it... sonic is a great character but hasn't had any great or even good games after the genesis console ones.. a few just ok games.(the 2D ones.. and 2.5D sections of his other games).but nothing good....
This game is what Sonic Team came up with after they played Super Mario Galaxy. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, since SMG is one of the best games ever, and the 3D Sonic games have been mediocre at best so far. Maybe this will be the boost that Sonic needs to regain some of the cred it lost after so many terrible games in the last decade.
Wii u sucks and only will have a handfew of good games like wii done. lets admit it nintendo can only make good gaming handhelds
My friends wonder why I barely use Facebook? This is why!!!!
Seriously though thanks for the balanced coverage Gamespot - had to leave IGN they are like giddy Sony fanboys - its like forty Sony articles.
Sega isnt a rival of nintendo... They've always made games on nintendo consoles, you're just complaining because it's on Wii U.
@Raiden8 I think the game looks pretty good. It sounds to me like someone is a graphics snob.
@Raiden8 You're right. 1080p is so shitty! Why can't they do 2160p!?
Such as? Also I'm really sick of seeing such a focus on graphics. It's like all I see is "Omg graphics suck, graphics this graphics that." like everything else doesn't matter. The game looks beautiful and will still look great years from now, while those mobile games you're thinking of will probably look like crap a few years from now.
@Xyllix I know they were originally on the Dreamcast, but the Sonic Adventure games were amazing. I can understand not liking anything after that (with the exception of Colors and Generations), but you have to give props to the Adventure games. They were awesome! I'd love to see another one!
That's what I thought when I saw the line up of PS4/XBox One games ;)
@thekazumalord Sonic can't work in 3D? Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Unleashed, Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations are the hard proofs that it does.
And if I got the 2nd part of your comment correctly, you're saying that the release of Sonic on Wii U will actually lead to a worse fate of the console than if the game was not released at all? Can I have what you've been smoking?
@fighterguard Well, Nintendo IS helping Sega develop this one...
Both Sonic Colors and Generations (despite it lacking in content) were really great Sonic games and showed that Sonic Team knows how to craft a strong 3D Sonic game and with Lost World, it seems that they've addressed the main issues players had with Colors and Generations so there's no reason why this game won't be great.
@fighterguard If anything, Sonic Adventure 2 did the whole gravity levels first than mario galaxy, the more you know
@Tevin Copper Yeah. CoD is so much better. Wii U has only been out for a few months but it's automatically failed because CoD isn't on it.
The Wii had quite a bit of strong titles, just because it's not as many as the PS3/360 doesn't mean they don't exist.
@David Lucas Seriously, WHY THE FUCK ISN'T COD ON THIS SHIT! WII U SUCKS, THE QUALITY (1080p) SUCKS, AND NOBODY LIKES IT! IT FUCKING SUCKS, NO OPINIONS!
@SNESNOSTALGIA2 if you think gamespot is less sony bias.. ur in the wrong place
@abHS4L88 @Raiden8 Such as Baseball Slam (that's a game I have worked on :P). But aside from advertising my game, I did not say that everything else does not matter. Actually, to me it matters even more. I have not played it to say how much I like the gameplay or not. But I can see the graphics, and I know it would bother me. Just look at that grass for example. It is bad.
The grass is meant to be like that, just like how the greenery in Sonic games have always had that checkered style. To me, it adds more charm to the game and visuals, changing things around and making them look even less realistic.
For me, even if the graphics aren't that strong, if everything else is great, I can look past bad graphics, such as The Last Story, loved the story, gameplay and music, but the visuals were not that great, especially after playing Xenoblade and Skyward Sword.
No one liked Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2? Those were two of the best selling games on the Dreamcast and their ports on the PS2/Gamecube also did well while both being critically acclaimed. While Sonic Heroes and Unleashed weren't as well received, like Dark_Mits said, their 3D portions were still praised. Colors was the first 3D Sonic game since Adventure 2 that was met with largely positive reviews so who should I believe? The 8.4/7.8 Metacritic user/reviewer score or some ignoramus who thinks he knows everything when it's quite evident that he's just a biased moron. I don't recall Dark_Mits saying anything about Sonic 06 being good, hardly any sensible gamer would call that a good game, thankfully as a huge Sonic fan, I skipped out on all the crap and only played the great Sonic games, which Adventure, Adventure 2, Colors and Generations are definitely examples of great Sonic games.
Also I recall from the trailer that Sonic Lost World isn't fully 3D, there will still be many 2.5D stages, so thanks for proving just how ignorant you are.
@Dark_Mits @thekazumalord no one liked Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Unleashed or Sonic Colors... and only the 2.5D parts of generations was good.. sonic runs too fast in full 3D games and sonic team doesn't know how to make him not fall through the world.. i bet you also thought sonic 2006 was the best game ever.. people like you who will buy any sonic game no matter how bad it is part of the reason why they keep putting out crappy, full 3D sonic games
@thekazumalord @Dark_Mits Right, so I'm wrong, which I guess would also make the vast majority of reviewers that gave those games 8.0+ or praised the 3D parts in the case of Unleashed wrong. But you and your think-alikes (which are probably less than the population of the Vatican) are right. Because you say so.
