You should probably avoid Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric(Wii U)

Go to 18:39 you won't be disappointed.  (or maybe you will...meh you'll get over it)

 

I said to myself, "If they just make a competent platformer then I won't really have much issue with this game.", but then they decided to add in a little Sonic '06 game design into it.  At this point I'll gladly throw the dev under the bus.  I suggest you avoid this one.  It could be a one time occurrence, but one time is one too many in my book.  I don't understand why Sanic can't get some reliable QA.

So a game has a single glitch that isn't even game breaking and you write off the game as a failer?

.... Kay.

It's more of a case of the hideous textures, bland gameplay, game breaking glitch, and the fact that Sega blasted the vid with a DMCA claim..........yeah, let's throw our money at them.

i'm not getting this game what with smash bros for wiiu and pokemon coming out. I was initially on the fence about this game, the character designs were alright but when i saw that video *facepalm* it just looked like a rushed project. The 3DS version *i played the demo* sadly doesn't feel any better as it feels like sonic rivals if that is what the finished game is going to be like then i can just see it bombing straight to the bargain bin. I don't think the children they aimed the games for probably won't play it.

I know that sonic team has had no part in this (i think it's big red button entertainment) but this just looks lazy and i would rather play sonic 06 again than this 

Hopefully the next game sonic team does should hopefully be better what with the awesome run they had with sonic colours, sonic generations and sonic lost world

To be quite honest, I would naturally shy away from a game that has 'Sonic' in his title. Really, the Good/Bad-Game Ratio of Sonic-Games is really abysmal. There might be 5 good games in what feels like a thousand titles. If it weren't for the nostalgia of the good old Sega vs. Nintendo school yard debates, Sonic would have stopped being relevant long long ago.

Kind like did on 2006 version of Sonic The Hedgehog. I just avoid it all cost due to me boycotting SEGA just like TotalBiscuit who also boycott SEGA for removing Shining Force III videos on YouTube which is TotalBiscuit was successfully avoided Aliens: Colonal Marines (which is bad and disappointment) thanks to his boycotting SEGA.

With how bad the game is, I think we can all still agree 06 is worse. They're both bad in their own special ways, but if you remove Sonic Boom and treat it as it's own thing, it's a lack luster, confusing, boring, but generally mechanically functional platformer with passable visuals in some instances, whereas Sonic 06 was a constant assault on your joy and functionally incompetent in every way. 06 is only better in that it has more "so bad it's good" value.

The game's actually very entertaining to watch in game grumps. That's all I could ask for a bad game.

Agreed. It sucks major horse ass. I avoided it. Same for Shattered Crystal though Shattered Crystal is playable and not glitchy but it's repetitive.
