So Sonic Lost World is out, and it’s…. well.. you’ll see. I’m not a fan of review embargoes these days, mainly because given the price of a game, you really need an idea as to what to expect. So for people living in the EU, odds are this won’t be of much use. But here it is anyway, the following is a roundup of all the Sonic Lost World reviews so far.
Scores are out of 10 unless otherwise stated.
Wii U Version.

And thats your lot so far…
Well, I suppose it could have been worse? It seems that for many people, the game is quite an average experience. If you want the details you can click the links, but from reading the reviews and looking around. The game appears to be quite painfully average, boss battles are a let down, controls are bad, there needed to be a tutorial stage, the learning curve is far too high, at times it re-cycles levels and ideas from the game, some boss fights are copy and pastes from other games and well… I think you get the idea.
It’s not bad, but it’s no better than average, if you go along with the above scores.
Anyway, stay tuned to TSS for our own review which should be getting put up at some point next week.
