Sonic Lost World - Trailer (Wii U)
To say that Sonic has had a rough time since transitioning to 3D would be a massive understatement; after his glory days on the Genesis, nothing was the same for Sonic. Many people would defend at least a few of the Sonic games released between 1995 and 2009, but few would argue that the era as a whole was a rather painful, dark age. Sonic Colors in 2010 was a turning point and Sonic console games have been in an upswing since its release. This means that Sonic Lost World actually has some expectations to live up to. Can it continue the cautious optimism that the Sonic games have finally won back? While there are certainly some problems with the game, the overall answer is yes.
