Freedom Planet is a wonderful Sonic the Hedgehog-esque game that mixes nostalgia with something new. The quirky characters, fantastic levels, and interesting story will make you not want to put the game down. Each character has their own advantages and disadvantages, encouraging you to test them all out. In the end, it's the whole package, and it's worth picking up.

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.

If you have a hunger for retro 16-bit games, GalaxyTrail's Freedom Planet is the title for you. This colorful sci-fi platformer feels like a forgotten NES gem.

Retro-styled Indie games are all too common these days, almost as much as fan-made Sonic games.

A fun, if not challenging, game that'd be right at home in the SNES vs Genesis days with a great soundtrack and endearing characters.

Any fan of platforming will be more than satisfied with the joy of speeding around the long levels and the derivative gameplay of the different characters. Those who have played this game on Wii U or other platforms will be disappointed though as there is no new content included in this release. Nevertheless, this is not a game to glance over and is nothing short of a thrill ride.

This is clearly a game that takes its inspiration seriously, and is a lovingly-crafted tribute to a genre of games that a lot of people, are really fond of. No new additions compared to previous releases, but if you haven't already played this then don't hesitate to pick it up on the eStore.

Freedom Planet is a fantastic fast platformer with lots of content. The three different playable characters all have different styles and levels, encouraging replayability, while the levels themselves include multiple pathways and hidden collectables. Any negatives are small, and easily forgotten about.
