Sonic Lost World follows the journey of Sonic, and the struggles he faces as he tries to defeat Doctor Eggman. The evil Doctor has captured several of Sonic’s animal friends. Pursuing Eggman, Sonic and Tails crash land on a world in the sky which is known as the Lost Hex. Doctor Eggman has seen it in his best interest to enlist the help of the world’s indigenous Zeti race, who are known as the Deadly Six. The main charters are all really charismatic in this game, but unfortunately the villains falls short, ending up as generic antagonists. The story itself holds up quite well in terms of the Sonic series but it’s definitely not as great as earlier Sonic games.
The latest entry into the Sonic franchise can be commended for its presentation. The CG cutscenes look absolutely stunning and the voice acting, though cheesy, is still acceptable. The game itself looks absolutely radiant, which is to be expected with such a bright and colourful game. It’s not the most amazing looking game, but thankfully the art style saves it.
The game looks absolutely great when in motion and runs without too many hiccups. It’s when you stop and look at the environment that things don’t look so great. It’s not such a big issue, because you’ll be going at speeds quicker than your eyes can discern for most of the time, but once you stop, it’s there. The sound track is a pleasant companion to the fast-paced gameplay. It’s catchy without being too repetitive, but it’s unlikely that it’ll stay in your mind for too long after completing the game.
