Why Is Lost World So Hated?

Postby BlueFlux » Wed Feb 04, 2015 11:59 pm

Reading the reviews really confused me as to why, as I enjoyed the games (3DS and Wii U) quite a bit. I just (finally!) got my hands on a Wii U days ago, and this was the first game I picked up. Although a few moments are frustrating, over all the good far outshines the negative. Going to mention that I'm in Tropical Coast currently. I played quite a bit of the 3DS version, though and have gotten much farther. The 3DS version, IMO was great up until Tropical Coast, then the levels got very long. By the end of Frozen Factory, I was getting 1 or 2 game overs per level. It was ridiculous. The Wii U version feels more forgiving, though, and doesn't make me want to break the 3DS (Or in this case, the GamePad) as much. Sound and story are great, although the Deadly Six don't really add anything. Graphics are great on the Wii U, passable on 3DS. Gameplay is great for both. And the 2 Wii U DLC levels are tons of fun. I go back to a lot of levels in SLW Wii U which is probably why I haven't gotten too far yet.
What is the big issue people have with this?
My favorite Sonic Game is Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast.

From the lets play I saw, my reasons for not liking it come from how poorly written the sinister six villains are.

You have

Vain woman
Hot headed
Emo
Old Master
Fat
and finally, Crazy Radical Villain

I get the feeling most reviewers didn't like it because

A- it tried to do too many things different from recent Sonic games, and what was different wasn't an improvement
B- while nothing is overridingly bad, too many aspects of the game are lack luster or could have been handled better

Generally opinions are that it was good, just not good enough to carry the torch from Colors and Generations.

Joking aside, Lost World can't possibly be as terrible as Eggman Boom: the video game.

I dont think its particularly hated, people just dont like it that much. It's by no means a bad game(except the 3ds version, the later half of that version sucks) and the game is usually regarded as unreasonably hard if your trying to 100% the game. A lot of things people didnt like were patched (100 rings giving extra lives, wisp controls, etc.) but by that point i think most people lost interest.

I played the demo and thought the gameplay was bland and boring.

In my opinion the run button was kinda dumb, they tried (and failed) at an adventure style of gameplay, the 3ds special stages tried to kill me, and the battle with the red one wasnt explained, i ended up giving up and googling it. Other than that, it was fine to me.
hey there! I don't have anything to put here for the moment, you can just move along now.

It's really boring and I hate the Deadly Six. Also for me I just kept comparing it to Mario Galaxy which made me hate Sonic Lost World even more because Mario Galaxy is one of my favorite video games. The only good thing that came out of that game was this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8cLe9ZUh1w
