I received a copy of the all new Sonic Lost World for the Wii U to play and review. Opinions of the game are 100% my own.

The game is exclusive to the Wii U and Nintendo 3ds. The version I received is the Deadly Six Bonus Edition which comes with a downloadable bonus level. In this game Sonic faces six menacing monsters called the Deadly Six. Each one more terrible than the next but Sonic has a whole bunch of new moves and color power to help in his mission like a flying kick, wall run and crimson eagle.
