Sonic’s Wii U debut is looking more and more boring with each and every trailer released, and that’s upsetting. The most recent trailer, showcasing some jungle and desert gameplay, looks especially… lacking in entertainment value. Sonic moves pretty slowly, and that means you notice the linearity of the levels a lot more, as there’s no crazy speed sections to distract you from the lack of branching pathways. Previous Sonic games were fun because you were too busy blazing across levels to notice their lack of expansiveness, but Lost World seems to revel in the lack of speed and/or large levels.
What are your thoughts on Sonic’s soon-to-be latest adventure? Are you excited for the return of not-so-fast Sonic, or did you prefer the style of Unleashed and Generations?
