Wow another sonic game.

Edited by StriderNo9

Nice, I'm always down to be let down for some Sonic action.

Well not sure if this is a good thing or not to promote multiplayer on the WiiU but it might help sales some as the Sonic fans who don't own anything Nintendo will now need to get one for this as it's not going out to anything else (and I don't expect it to either with the way Nintendo locks up it's games for just it's system unlike the games on the 360 or PS3 which might eventually show up on other systems).

looks slow as fuck.

I don't even have to read the comments, I know it's the usual whining, ooohhh another Sonic game, it looks awful, it's so slow, bla bla bla.
Personally I think it looks like fun, a lot of fun, and I will buy it when it's out ^_^

I think this game looks absolutely fantastic. I love that they went in a different direction to the pure speed stuff, They could have easily just made Generations 2.

Still looks good. I liked the last two games and thought the last 10 years before that were hot garbage. Nice to see Sonic Team getting their shit together.

Crazy how few of these games don't have multiplayer races. Definitely excited for it though!

As somebody who thought Sonic was on the right track with games like Generations, I continue to feel pretty cold on Lost World for how it completely uproots everything in favor this new "Super Mario Galaxy, but faster" route.

Wasn't the whole point supposed to originally be that Sonic wasn't Mario?

my god! if the music is like this in the actual game then Sega done good. the awful whiny rock-like music in past games are unbearable.

the gameplay also looks like a lot of fun (co-op still seems to be on par of Sonic 2 & 3 uselessness though). i would still honestly consider investing on getting a Wii U to play this.

Sega proud to reveal Sonic Gala- I mean Sonic Lost World.

WHAT THE FUCK SEGA!?

This actually looks like it could be pretty awesome, I'll keep my eye on it.

That's not fast enough!

Sonics got all that wub wub.

Also, It sounded like one of the characters said "I'm so beat, I wanna beat him off".

Sonic is a product of the 90's the "awful whiny rock-like music" is what makes him who he is. Taking that and replacing it with wub wubs is like replacing the whimsical Mario music with rap.

Anyway, this looks alright for a Sonic game but it still seems more about the spectacle than gameplay which has always been the problem with Sonic games even before they went 3D.

I hope it's good though, I need more reasons to buy a Wii U besides Bayonetta 2 & Pikmin 3!

"He's so upbeat, I wanna beat him up". The comparisons to Mario Galaxy are defiantly justified but Sonic's been so far off the beaten track since the Dreamcast days (Until relatively recently) I appreciate the effort to try and emulate whats possibly the best 3D platformer ever made. Just as the first Sonic was originally a cooler take on the slow and methodical gameplay of Mario I hope Lost World can ape Galaxy even a fraction of a similar way.

Why does this game look so great?

@blazehedgehog:

Look at it this way, we are finally getting the Sonic Extreme All us Sega fans waited for on the Saturn.

Mario Galaxy, got it to work better but it wasnt first with the whole "gravity center platforming" thing

Edited by NickDynmo

This looks fun!

Wow! I thought it'll be 30FPS like Generations was. Nice to know for the game to be 60FPS.

Edited by Kosayn

I really think Nintendo should have just said fuck it, and let them call it Sonic Galaxy. Both companies need what that name would bring.

Regardless, it does look nice, for a Sonic game. However, past Sonic games have looked good, and ended up falling short in terms of control and level construction.

The last two Sonic Racing games and Sonic Generations were awesome games that I really enjoyed. But I also enjoyed those 3 games on both my PC and 360 because I purchased them individually on the console and again as a pack on the PC. If I can't get this one on available platforms then why bother.

Also, Sonic games on Nintendo consoles exclusively have almost always been terrible. I assume that like every other developer, there are two teams working on two different games. I know Sonic sells on Nintendo but, the trailer doesn't do much for me. The music they picked sounds hollow and weird.

I dunno....Comparing this to Mario Galaxy is madness guys.

No, the comparisons to Mario Galaxy are not justified. And relatively recently is like the past 3 years or whatever. You crazy guy! ;)

I paused this video multiple times to check and make sure there weren't any tabs playing sounds in the background...

"I sure wish this Sonic game had asymmetric co-op and wobble bass," said no one ever.

Looks like this is my next 3DS purchase.

What do you mean 30FPS? It ran at a smooth 60... on my PC. #gloriousPCmasterrace

"Granted, multiplayer might not be the reason most people want to play Sonic, but hey! They're there!"

Oh, hi guy who never played Sonic 2.

Posted by Hitzel

Looks to have the same painfull rail gameplay of all the other recent 3D Sonic games.

Posted by ll_Exile_ll

I still keep wondering how many more consecutive good games have to come out in this series before the general gaming community (and the larger games press) finally gets over the "Sonic games are bad" attitude and realizes this series has been back on track for a while now.

Looks a-okay? I was actually kind of into racing people when Sonic Adventure 2 was more relevant.

Edited by GiantAlston

While I don't really understand the multiplayer aspect in this new sonic game. I will have to admit, this game looks great. I love this style of graphics and I can't wait to give it a try.

The comparisons to the look and style of Galaxy are defiantly justified. I also meant relativity recently compared to the 12 years it's been since Sonic Adventure 2 came out.

The Sonic Cycle is a lazy cheap shot. The criticisms contained in it haven't been relevant for years. Especially as people have already pointed out the last few games haven't been horrible. Generations was the best 3D Sonic game ever.

I loved Generations and this is leaving me indifferent :(

At least you can burn with me in the Miiverse.
