Feedbackula - Sonic Boom Belligerence!
Sega let out a Sonic Boom this week, but our users didn't react too kindly to the newly redesigned cast of characters. Johnny has a look at what you've been saying.

I loved Sega but it was never for Sonic games. If they can make them more interesting and less about speeding through levels then hey I am up for a new game. I hope it is nothing like previous Sonic games.
Isnt Sonic being rebooted for the kids, I was young when Sonic was released, so surely everyone that is complaining must be at least pushing 30 mwah ha ha ha... that's hilarious! Well fuck you guys, get over it, im off to play a mature game... RAYMAN LEGENDS, BOOM! LOL
@frightnight0330 what the hell LOL... I used to love getting shit faced and hitting up the dubstep bars, tons of hot girls that completely ignored me because of my shite dancing. Sorry to hear dubstep raped your mother though frightnight :(
Sega hasn't made a good Sonic game since the days of thee Sega Saturn so there's no real reason to hope that Sega will suddenly make a good Sonic game. if they haven't made a good Sonic game is like 15 plus years, why bother hoping for one now?.. if you want a good sonic game go buy a used copy of Sonic Mega Collection.. that's all the good Sonic games you need
FYI, the feedbackula music is now used on a crisp advert in the UK http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rPGUeReUH8
@getupandboogie Need Johnny at the end saying "Fogg her? I barely know her!!"
WTF is wrong with people, complain complain complain. All their legs look weird, but I'm not going to judge a game for that. I'm going to try it first, then rate it. Actually I'm not because I don't have a Wii-U... so I guess it doesn't matter.
You should only make small changes to high profile profitable games.
However if it's a game that has pretty much slipped into obscurity or just a nostalgia piece than change the frick out of it.
Do whatever you want because all that matters is getting it to sale again, like it or not.
I am sonic fan! But i need to say sonic died after sonic adventure 2 from dreamcast, after that i never saw another good sonic game! The only games are kinda but i mean kinda "ok" is sonic generations and colours even that ones have lots of problems and the rest is just garbage. Sonic need a reboot like tomb raider and also devil may cry had! This old school game is clearly destroyed and sega should stop ruin it even more. And who cares about this game, this game is a exclusive for wii u lol! The console almost no one buy it anyway.
@WillyWynn Sonic has been the definition of 'meh.' since Sonic 3D -or what ever the one where you have to rescue swarms of flickies is called.
@WillyWynn Sonic died on the dreamcast. Along with the Dreamcast's hardware failure ;)
My initial reaction was that my entire life had just been thrown away. Like everything that I learned to love with every fiber of my being was just savagely torn apart and reconstructed to make some monstrosity that slightly resembled the franchise I decided I would dedicate my life to.
But with the more looking I do, I actually feel like this might not be the case.
Maybe Sonic does need a new feel. I mean the steady recline of game quality (according to the majority of it's fan base) really begs the question, do we keep hitting the dead horse? Or do we try a new approach?
But how are we supposed to take this? Just forget everything we grew up with and completely forsake the little continuity the past 23 years gave us? Just except that this isn't the same Sonic?
I will admit this is much different in the fact that everything is really more natural. Realistic. New... Not the oversold cartoon mascot that we've come to expect. This can work to an advantage for a new approach. But not with out leaving behind what made Sonic Sonic in the first place.
I personally will support Sonic the Hedgehog through all of it's trials and tribulations. It means far too much to me for a little wardrobe change to push me away. So good Luck Sonic. You'll win in the end. You always do >;)
Loose most of the bandages and keep Sonics arms fleshy. If Amy has them, so should Sonic. That's all I ask.
@grin89 that's Mario and that's Bowser
I hope SEGA know what they are doing. Most people like how the old characters look. Changing them like that is taking unnecessary risk. In business stand point, they gain nothing if people like the new look, and if they aren't like it, there go sale lost, not to mention a hit to the company's reputation.
Meh, I've never been excited for a Sonic game anyway. Sure, I enjoyed the original on Genesis along with a few others, but Sonic has never been a franchise that I could get remotely excited about.
The defending logic for Knuckles, has made me feel sick...
Knuckles is horrible looking. He doesn't need to look like he benches all day and chugs down protein drinks like its water .. or booze, to break stuff.
Well just think, no matter what, it can't be AS BAD as '06...
Still, will consider giving it a try, if my local RedBox picks it up. Who knows, I may enjoy it.
Horrid design this from a long time fan of the series. Just take the tapes off and make Kuckles his size and you have a good game. I still want my sonic game which is based on the 1999 film SONIC.

Imperium, Avada Kedavra, Cruciatus... and Redesignatus. Now we've got a fourth unforgivable curse XDD
I cannot understand the need to redesign a character in such a way. I've never actually liked the modern Sonic characters, specially compared to the classic ones. But this is too much.
A scarf isn't enough to turn me off from a game. Knuckles redisign is terrible though. Last Sonic games I were into (like all of you I'm guessing) were Adventures 1 & 2 but even then 2 wasn't as good as 1, Sonic was doing just fine without a Hedgehog Nemesis
@canuckbiker He has the old-timey piano music for the funny jokes. That joke was just so unfunny we needed to savor the terribleness in silence
So someone please explain to me why its even relevant what the hell size some strange looking red squirrel is in Sonic game? oh wait i get its Fanboys being fanbois.
Fanboys sometimes make me wonder about the future of mankind.
