What is Freedom Planet about?
Freedom Planet is a combat-based platform adventure that pits a spunky dragon girl and her friends against an alien attack force. Theres trouble around every turn, from insects to giant robots to sheer explosive destruction, but youll have a variety of special fighting abilities to blast your way through each stage.
As Lilac, you can use Dragon powers to whip enemies with your hair, spin like a cyclone, or fly through the air at high speed like a comet.
As Carol, you can bust through foes with a flurry of punches and kicks or summon motorcycles that let you ride up walls and ceilings.
Although Freedom Planet looks like a Sonic clone at first, it soon turns out to be better. I would even go so far that it is better than any other Sonic game. The pacing is very high as usual and the levels offer a lot of variety. Because the characters have some additional abilities, this game also plays much more varied than its role model. Unfortunately, the game has a totally insignificant title, which is probably why it has remained off the radar for many. 4/5
