Anyone that’s a fan of the old Sonic games, or just misses this style of game and is looking for a new experience. You owe it to yourself to pick this up on Nintendo Switch. It’s a combination that just can’t be beat.
The game has been around for a few years now, but if you haven’t had the chance to pick it up, this Switch port is definitely an opportunity you don’t want to pass up.
Now that the dust has settled from the successful trailblaze left by Sonic Mania, Freedom Planet gets to have another crack at filling the withdrawals left behind by the blue blur. In this regard, Freedom Planet does enough to serve that cause while presenting a decent amount of gameplay changes to stand on its own feet. It’s just more unfortunate that its core gameplay style is so inevitably comparable to the classic formula.
Since the game released back in 2015, it's been ported from system to system and has received good to excellent praises throughout the years and once again this is not exception. The game is fun, fast and engaging. If you're looking for something that fits those categories then look no further than Freedom Planet to stop those jittery nerves. This game get my rating of 8 out of 10 for being a colorful, speedy, surprise.
What I think the game gets absolutely right is the balanced combination of speed sections, more traditional platforming and exploration, and some great boss battles. Rather than simply being derivative the result feels more like the game I’d always wished Sonic could be. If you’re a big Sonic fan it’s absolutely worth checking out, and even if you’re not you may find it surprising.

Freedom Planet is a thoroughly enjoyable throwback to some of the industry's most iconic platformers
There is good games, and then there is great games. Freedom Planet turns out to be latter, thanks to developers paying attention to detail more than i remember seeing in quite long time.
