E3 2014: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric Gameplay
Sonic and Amy Rose team up for battle after some... banter... in Sonic Boom for Wii U.
I want to rub it in on what Danny said in the stage demo for this game: this Sonic game is not made for you older farts. :P
so glad it's a Wii U exclusive. Sega, please bring to us PC/Xbox/PS owners a really fast sonic game and make it cool like you did with Sonic Adventure.
and none of that fighting stuff in this game, nor similar to Mario galaxy gameplay in Lost world... or not even fighting like in Unleashed, just run and dash.
something like generations
For all the ADHD sonic fans there is still going to be speed courses in this game. I actually like the fighting parts.
SONIC aDVETURE will always be the best 3d resurrection of Sonic the Hedgehog... Sigh.. What is this mess
I used to love sonic games, but this is not the Sonic game i remeber - fast paced, one hit kill etc etc..
I've already accepted the terrible fate of never having my child hood return in the form of a Sega game long ago.
You know, Sega needs to learn that just because they are using anthropomorphic mascots DOESN'T mean that they have to make a half-baked kiddy game... just look at Ratchet and Clank or Little Big Planet. A game can have characters that are marketable to children (Sega is looking for that toy isle and cartoon money) and still be a good game/story.
controls seem sloppy,
I like the fact they have some action in it now, but as you can tell the old school fans are crying like babies because of it.
The voice acting could be a lot better too,
I am a huge Sonic fan but jeez this looks awful. Plus what the hell is up with Amy shouting "Nice Kill Sonic", that is just pure horrible dialogue.
so from a platfomer into a beat em up...
sega you've successfully trashed a classic series, i hope you run out of business
@Piris what are you talking? are fing blind?
@RetroSEAL yea go cry somewhere else
@Wolf_Xander2KX this is the best idea they ever had , grow up all sonic games dont need to be the same.
@broly180 4 real we need a PS4 version!
@lorider25 If by "action," you mean dialogue with long awkward pauses and a slow-ass hedgehog walking circles around dumb, generic robots, then yeah, this game looks action packed.
@michaelgair this is an obvious case of literal translation from japan. zero effort in to making the dialogue consistent for here in America.
@RabidBurp Yeah, I thought I was taking crazy pills there.
@rarerichz @Piris it's not about the graphics. Sonic is supposed to be all about speed and platforming and neither of those ideas are in this game. It just looks like a hack and slash and an okay one at that. Also, the voice acting and writing sound baddddd. As a wii u owner, this is not very impressive. I'll play super mario 3d world or mario kart 8.
@justinka777 it is just lazy game making, never in sonic was it implied that anything ever died in sonic just defeated. Eggman is seemingly never killed so why would they suddenly bring up the prospect that sonic just ruthlessly kills things. horrible and seemingly misunderstood.
