Hey guys, I was wondering which version of Sonic Lost World do you guys think is better. I have the Wii U version and beat it, and I'm considering the 3DS version since I liked the Wii U version a lot. I want to hear how the 3DS version stacks up against the Wii U version. I hear the 3DS version has better level design, better controls, and a better final boss. But what do you guys think? I want to hear from people who own and played through both versions of the game.

Better controls and level design? Lolwut? They were lying to you. The 3DS version's advantages are: 1. A ranking system. 2. Online multiplayer and 3. The bosses. The level design however pales in comparison to the Wii U version, and Sonic handles like a grease monkey in the 3DS version. In my as well as my friends personal experiences there weren't many stages in the 3DS version we wanted to play more than once. The opposite was true of the Wii U version.

From what I've seen, the 3DS version's level design seems more puzzle-oriented, which isn't a bad thing I guess.

The puzzles are all relatively simple to figure out, certainly nothing to rack your brain over. The puzzles are usually just stuff like "defeat X amount of enemies" or guiding fruit. The fruit guiding is in the Wii U version as well as you already know.

Yeah, I know. The puzzles look the least bit challenging. But watching Cobanermani456, the player can get fricked over a lot. But I don't mind that kind of difficulty, as I can always find a way around those tricky areas.

C-c-combo breaker!
The 3DS demo seemed fun. I always enjoy a Sonic game so I may give this version a whirl sometime... when I have the money.

I foresee what you'll do there.

Got the 3DS and Wii U version. I find the 3DS version far better than the Wii U version. The levels are less generic, tougher and more experimental. The bosses are less pathetic as well.
I also found that the Gamepad made everything worse for Sonic. It was too dumb. Rhythm wisp for example, is broken, makes no sense and pointless. Grabbing items takes away time, and gets you out of the gameplay by looking down (its also easy to miss the item and accedentally use an item that would be better in a different situation).
The speed is also well balanced with the level design, which is the complete opposite with the Wii U version.

I loved the Wii U version, but I just wanted to know if the 3DS version was worth a purchase. It seems like it is.

I suppose you're right about the reactions. Anyways, you're right, we are getting off-topic. From your view point, is Lost World 3DS worth a buy?

I have the 3DS version not the Wii U version for two reasons.

1.I don't have a Wii U yet.

2.If its on 3DS why not get that one instead?

So far I got all the chaos emeralds and beaten three zones. But unlike other sonic games where there are different paths you can take to reach the goal, this one is a bit linear. For example in tropical coast, you need to use yellow drill to complete the level. But there are some secret paths to get in the game but since you can't get them unless you unlock more wisps, I've decided to beat the game first inorder to get the goodies later on.

But I will say this now that you are not gonna like the special stages in the 3DS version because you have to move the 3ds around to get those orbs. But it does not feel unplayable nor is it broken like Sonic Heroes. Super Sonic here can skip a lot of level segments in this version but when it comes to the linear parts, you're forced to use the wisps in order to proceed.

If you want my advice, I'll let you know as soon as I finish the first playthrough.

After so long...I'm back. Don't ask why

My only experience with the game was a few games of download play multiplayer with a few people that I was talked into.
I won funnily enough, considering I've never played the game before, but can't say that I enjoyed it very much and have no intentions of buying the game myself.
So pretty much, I don't have enough experience with the game to recommend for or against the purchase, so this post is a bit pointless... oh well.

Whoops, didn't see that yesterday. But if you don't mind the problems that've been mentioned, the 3DS version is a decent game. I'd recommend you wait until it's cheaper though.

You really should get a Wii U and Sonic Lost World on Wii U. The Wii U is a fun console and delivers many fun experiences and appeals to a greater variety of gamers than PS4 and Xbox One. Sonic Lost World is only one of the several gems already on and coming soon to Wii U!

Anyways, thanks for the advice.

I'm probably not going to get Lost World 3DS until 2014 because I wanna get LoZ: ALBW launch day.

Oh but I do want to get the Wii U and play 3D World! Infact I'm very positive that the Wii U will outsell the PS4 and ONE But I'm having some personal problems right now and since I'm in India, I fear that if there is a blackout while my game is saving, I might lose all my save states so I'm really worried about that issue and that I'm waiting for a price drop which should happen around next year and move to a location where there won't be frequent blackouts.

But I don't want to get Lost World on Wii U because I already have the 3DS version where the story plays the same so really it doesn't matter to me. Besides, the 3DS version plays like a traditional Sonic game than the Wii U and I've heard a lot saying that the 3DS version is better than the Wii U.
