I want to stress that I have played and beaten the game the whole way through before starting to discuss the game. It's not the worst thing I've ever played, but I feel that not only are there better Wii U titles to choose from, there are better Sonic games to choose from as well.

You get to play as Sonic along with his closest friends Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose. Each character is capable of running, jumping, using an energy beam and beating robots up, though each has their own unique gimmicks and areas to explore; Sonic can use homing attack and spindash, Tails can summon a Buddy-Bot to solve puzzles and glide, Knuckles can climb along walls and ceilings as well as dig in certain areas and Amy can triple jump and walk along pink beams. It's also worth noting that except for the bland speed sections, Sonic and pals don't move very fast. Granted, it is a spin off series, but it is still a disappointment given that Sonic is still supposed to be fast in this universe. I do like the fact that Tails, Knuckles and Amy are playable as characters again, a feature that hasn't been seen and handled well for years, though there will be points where you can only choose between certain characters, meaning you cannot always be in control of your favourite.

The hub worlds in this game are empty with the exception of a few non-playable characters who can give you sub-quests, and sometimes easy to get lost in. There is a map with a list of objectives, but I found that the map wasn't all that helpful unless you already know the area. The map will often need to be referred to to discover the next objective, as it is the only means of locating where you need to go next, as the game doesn't give clear hints.

Please buy Super Mario 3D World instead. Or Mario Kart 8. Or Wind Waker HD. Or Rayman Legends.

I didn't buy this from Amazon, I got it cheaper elsewhere. I've been interested in this game for a while, strangely enough. The developer BigRedButton is (or was, considering a lot of them have now apparently left, like rats jumping from a sinking ship) made up of a team of people who worked on such classics as Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter so I was expecting a good, solid, entertaining platformer to play over the Xmas months. Of course as it's release date drew nearer, negative reviews started to appear. Apparently Sega hadn't bothered sending anybody review copies and people who had played the game were running into all kinds of glitches and frame rate issues. But still I kept the faith. There have been awful Sonic gams in the past...I don't think I need to explain to anybody just how horrific Sonic The Hedgehog 2006 was. But recent years have been kinder to the old blue blur. Sonic Colours on Wii was a very pleasant surprise and Sonic Generations was even better and a fitting anniversary game. Even last year's Sonic & The Lost World was an enjoyable if flawed romp with a lot of interesting level designs set on cylinder shaped stages. Sonic's dark days seemed to be behind him. Surely Sonic Boom: The Rise Of Lyric, coming from experienced platform game developers, would continue the trend of 'good' Sonic games?

In a nutshell, 'no'. Unfortunately, Sonic's fallen right back down to near....*shudder* Sonic 2006 standards.

What on earth went wrong? It's hard to tell exactly. The framerate is extremely unstable for a start. Whilst I've not had the game go unplayably slow/jerky on me yet, it's constantly and very noticeably dipping. Nearly all Sonic games have had issues with the in game camera and this certainly hasn't been fixed here....

I refuse to sugar coat this game as some of the others have and am giving it the lowest score possible. For a game that had double the budget of Sonic Colours, this is abysmal. If SEGA can make games like Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations, then why do they allow a game like this to be released? It baffles my mind. Anyway, onto Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric...

The game is plagued with issues from the start, such as bad collision, falling through the floor without meaning to, hitting invisible walls and triggering things by accident, a nonsensical plot and progression that likes to teleport you to make sense.

The game refuses to tell you where to go, what to do next or tells you what to do [for example, go to a shrine] without explaining the details [what is a shrine, and where is it located?].

There's a cap on the number of rings you can hold and yet, you can get to this cap in seconds, with the game throwing tons of them at you. Not that rings make a difference any more as when you "die", you come back to the same area with a set number of rings, meaning that collecting rings and dying are effectively useless as a gaming mechanic here.

Visually, this game looks bad. Even in comparison to other games on the Wii U such as Super Mario 3D World, Bayonetta 2 and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD. The visuals also suffer some terrible draw distance and some very low quality rendering taking place.

The game also suffers from terrible lag, even on the title screen (come on, really?). Some areas will dip well below the games supposed 30 fps and the audio will sometimes stutter as it tries to catch up. It's downright embarassing to see this in a finished product.
