The Escapist: "Sega's iconic blue hedgehog has had a hard time of it lately. And by 'lately,' I mostly mean since Sonic Adventure. There have been some high points here and there (Sonic Colors, for example), but for the most part, Sonic games have been 'meh' at best, utterly unplayable at worst. So I'm not going to be mad if you don't immediately believe me that Sonic Lost World is good enough to make you get up and do a moderately embarrassing victory dance that involves fist pumps and butt shakes. That's cool, I don't blame you for being skeptical. But holy wow, this game is a damn good time."
