Poll: Will Sonic Boom be better than Sonic Teams new Sonic game? (19 votes)

Yes 37%
No 63%

Sega has recently given Sonic to westerndevs, who will make a westernized version of the series. The last few games from Sonic Team have been panned quite badly other than Sonic Generations and a mix on colors. Will the new USA team bring Sonic back from the dead?

No, the game looks like it is designed for the American market (like oversized Knuckles). Looks like the same game as usual with no innovation.

Yes. Japanese devs suck now excluding Nintendo.

Sonic team either doesn't understand what good sonic level design should consist of, or doesn't bother to put in the time to do what it takes to make a fast paced platformer work anymore. lm glad someone else is taking a shot. Although this looks odd, l think it does have promise.

I heard that the focus isn't on speed but rather combat and narrative so there's no chance in hell this game will top the likes of Sonic Rush and Generations which actually play to the unique strengths of the sonic franchise.

Is the co-op local ?

People will complain no matter what they do.

No. As much as Sonic Team has fucked up the main franchise it can't be worse than this.

I haven't played a Sonic game since Sega Genesis. Unless this thing hits a major homerun, I don't plan on starting again.

What? After all the crap you said you have the gall to say that?

Good Sonic games are the rare exception.They're deemed bad from the the time of announcement unless reviews prove otherwise.

The game does look pretty fun, but really, they've released one 1 minute trailer. How are we supposed to answer the poll's question? We have no idea.

Hard to tell now really but I'm definitely more interested as it's in someone else's hands. Wait and see I guess.

no idea, hope so. Too early to tell, whether the change will be good. :p

It definitely looks like a game for Kids. I mean it's launching at the same time The New Cartoon show starts airing.

Honestly I'm a bit jealous of the new age kids. I would have loved to play a Sonic game based off the DiC Sonic SatAM. Although this isn't the case, but kids today will at least get a Sonic game based off a TV show.

Regardless I don't think I'll pick this game up.

I am surprised no one has mentioned Sonics hand color.

I think SEGA (and this new developer) missed the point on why Generations sold well...
