Finally finished Sonic Lost World for the Wii U. I know it launched a while ago but I took my time due to Pokemon X/Y and my XBONE coming in.

At first I was adamant the controls were just fine but the game is riddled with instances where it just flat out does not want to cooperate with the player. For instance, the game at times fails to obey its own rules and seems to forget Sonic is even in the game. Flowers that open when you jump on them harm you for no reason when trying to open them and boss fights that require auto attacks to be damaged are not highlighted by the auto attack prompt despite being in a state of vulnerability and you being nearby. I'm under the firm belief that this game was not extensively playtested. However when it works it is a joy to play and definitely not as awful as critics made it out to be, as the majority of critics' control issues seemed to stem from their own incompetence and weren't in the same category as my complaints with the game. 

Did anyone else experience any issues with the game or was it all smooth sailing for you?  Considering the sales and reviews of the game do you think this is the final nail in Sonic's coffin?

I experienced similar issues on the 3DS demo of Lost Worlds, the demo ensured I will never buy the game.

I enjoyed Generations on the 3DS minus the fact it was so short I felt like I was robbed of my cash by about 90% of its current asking price.

The next and possibly last Sonic game I will purchase is the 3DS remake of the original Sonic (in 3D!) which just came out on the estore, they even added new features which is a massive bonus for any old school Sonic fans.

You say you took a while to finish Lost Worlds thanks to X/Y and your X1. Now tell me sir, why did Zelda: A Link Between Worlds not join your list of distractions?

My copy should come in some time this week. I'm a cheapass and import my videogames.
