Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sonic Lost World: Deadly Six Edition (Nintendo Wii U) (Video Game)
You are probably thinking "hey this doesn't look total garbage! what's going on Sonic?!" and you might also notice it looks quite a lot like Mario Galaxy. Unless you are one of those nerds who thinks it is based off that old cancelled Sonic game.
But never fear! It actually IS a bit rubbish.

There's are a lot of fun levels but there are a lot more tedious, long levels filled with pits and backtracking and so on.
The controls take a bit of getting used to and then they are fine, not intuitive and half the moves seem pointless but whatever, they function.
Sega seem to think this is an iPhone game or something because it's loaded with little challenges and needless power-ups like it's Temple Run or something. "Hit 5 enemies" "GREAT YOU HIT 5 ENEMIES have a speedboost" Also there's micro-transactions for lives. Personally I think that's disgusting in a full price retail game. To facilitate this they made it so when you get 100 lives you don't get an extra life anymore and power-ups can no longer be found inside little TVs.
(PS what's up with that £43 price for Deadly Six Edition? I paid a tenner less on launch)
DEADLY SIX EDITION only has 1 extra level which is a cross between a boss rush mode, those bits in Nights where you go through hoops. For completing it you get another pointless power-up.
There ARE, however, the Wisps from Sonic Colours, they require that you muck about with the touch screen in an awkward fashion. Some of them have button counterparts but they won't tell you what they are as though it's a secret they would rather not think about.

The whole game just feels a bit MEH, difficult to muster up any love or hate either way
